Disabled Women like Victoria’s Secret Model Sofia Jirau Don’t Need you to Protect Them

You don’t own disabled women. Reread it. 

You don’t own our bodies, minds, or choices – we are not plastic, inanimate Barbie dolls upon whom you can enforce your views and project your prejudices. 

You cannot preordain our life or career paths – our clothing choices. You cannot tell us we’re being exploited as you manipulate us.
