It was a simple plea from a father on Twitter this week that throws a spotlight on the daily fight those with a disability still are forced to wage.
Hello @Ticketek_AU, he wrote, you have yet again made it impossible to easily book wheelchair accessible seating for upcoming @HeatBBL games. When will you fix this?
It happened every year, he said. “Why make it so hard for people with a disability to interact with you when everyone else can do it easily?’’
A simple question that should never have to be asked.
Yet those with a disability, living out each day, still have to navigate uneven footpaths, narrow doorways, inhospitable – and even downright rude – commentary.
