Swipe Left on Ableism (Light Color Sweatshirts)
Ableism is discrimination and social prejudice against people with disabilities. It characterizes persons as defined by their disabilities and as inferior to the non-disabled. "Swipe Left" is slang for rejecting someone or something, which comes from dating apps where you swipe left to reject someone or swipe right to accept them as a match.
My daughter Sammi Haney plays Esperanza in Netflix's Raising Dion (Produced by Michael B. Jordon). She has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (O.I.) Type III or “Brittle Bone Disease”, and so she uses a wheelchair.
I once had someone I used to know (who I won't name because I never want to deal with/hear from him again) compare my daughter to being a 5 million dollar burden because of her medical bills. When he looked at my daughter, that is what he saw. I just laugh at that, because now she is a regular cast member of a Netflix show, so apparently other people saw more value in her than his ableism did.
