I wish I knew. "Babies dont have heart problems" is the most common rejoiner. I can only assume they feel safer in a world where disability is clearly "marked" by a wheelchair or facial feature.
Boxing is easy, understanding is hard?

More food for thought: I'm treated as more "normal" in a wheelchair than out of one. When I'm out of a wheelchair, nobody has any physical prop to blame my weirdness on, so their perception of my weirdness goes up substantially.
