Saw the trailer for “Everything, Everything,” and if people could stop equating disabilities to having no life, that’d be great. The character is depicted to have a condition that causes her to stay inside because it’d harm her medically to be exposed to the outside environment because she’s immuno-compromised. Spoiler alert: she has no illness or disability! She can go outside and live her life! Heaven forbid a character have a disability and live a happy life.
What I’m saying is this: we do not need a cure to have a happy ending. I am disabled, and happy, and those two things are not mutually exclusive.
