She's definitely got a point there:

Quote:
I spent the earliest days of my relationship frantically texting my best friend with things like “they are being so nice to me and I don’t know how to handle it”.
After (almost) a year of healing, I know that this was because I didn’t feel deserving. But guess what? Disabled people make the most beautiful partners. We are multifaceted, complex human beings, just like everyone else. We have so much to offer those around us that exists outside of our disability. Most importantly, we deserve the opportunity to showcase that to the world.

Yep. Beware of entitled pricks of any gender or biological sex who have an attitude of "you get what you are given, according to my rules."

Those people can go to hell in a flaming horse carriage!
