5 Weirdest Things People Said About My Disability

Hello, everyone it’s Molly here for another video, and as you can see from the title, it’s a continuation of the collaboration series I have going on here with Yesterday’s Wishes, or Lucy. It’s our #BlindPeopleProblems, and yes it’s called #BlindPeopleProblems as like the title of the series, but by no means do you have to be blind to participate in the series that we’re doing. If you want to do your own version of the videos that we’re both uploading, then definitely go ahead and do it. For most of them you kind of do have to have some form of a disability, whether it’s physical or otherwise, but certainly, you don’t have to be blind — we’re both blind, so that’s why we chose that as the title but, yeah. So, last video we did was our top five pet peeves as guide dog users, and as you can see from this time, it’s the top five weirdest things people have said about our disabilities And I have a lot more than five, so if you enjoy hearing these and you want to hear another top five of the weirdest things people have said about my disability, definitely let me know, give it a thumbs up, tell me in the comments down below. And definitely comment down below the weirdest things people have ever said to you about your disability, again, whether it’s physical or otherwise. And if you do it in a blog form or a video form you can always tweet it to Lucy and I, my Twitter is linked down below with #BlindPeopleProblems so we can find them. I will also have Lucy’s version of this video down linked down below. We’re uploading at the exact same time. She’s an awesome chick and she has a really cool accent so you should go check her out, subscribe to her channel if you haven’t already, and I will also leave her channel down below. So, without further ado, I will get into it. This is in no particular order, these are just random things that people have said to me throughout my journey of being a person with a disability. And in no means am I saying these things or sharing these things with you to bash these people, because I’m mad at these people, or anything like that. I’m simply sharing these, one, to show how much education is still needed regarding disabilities and blindness and two, to show you that if you have a disability, again, physical or otherwise, and people have made these kinds of comments to you, that you’re not alone. Unfortunately, a lot of us face these things, and it’s about choosing to take that negative energy that someone has given to you, and turn it into something positive. And so for me, often times when people make negative comments to me or when they sp — (phone rings) I hope I’m still in focus, I just got a phone call. To me, it’s about when people make these negative comments to me or they say these things, I try to recognize that they’re probably just saying it out of ignorance. Ignorance, the definition for that meaning a lack of knowledge or information regarding a specific topic. And so I often think these people are making these comments out of ignorance and this is my opportunity to educate these people. And so I think the best thing you can do in a situation where somebody says these kinds of things to you, and it happens to me all the time, people continuously say ridiculous things on my YouTube videos, comments and everything and I just choose to take that opportunity to educate them on why what they said might be incorrect or not accurate, and if they still continue to choose to want to stay ignorant after I tried to educate them, then at that point that’s when I just walk away. I don’t choose to continue a conversation with those people, that’s my time to say “Alright, I tried my best, now I’m going to choose to leave it alone.” But I think it’s a great opportunity to try to educate people. So that’s my take on it. And that’s why I thought I would share these things with you today. So, the first one I want to share with you, as a lot of you know, I say it in like every video, I’m a motivational speaker, that is my full-time job. This is kind of like my part-time, fun hobby, but my full-time job is speaking, and so if you see me speak, you’ve probably — not probably, you’ve definitely heard me say this one. And this happened to me when I was in grade 8 and I had just gone to my doctor’s appointment and found out that I had lost a significant amount of my vision. And when I went to school the next day and I told my friends what had happened, one of them said “Well at least you’re not dying of cancer.” And in my opinion, you can’t compare peoples’ pain The worst pain that I have ever felt is just as painful as the worst pain you have ever felt. Whether the worst pain you’ve ever felt is when you broke your leg, or when you went through a break up, or when you didn’t get into your dream college, or when your parents got divorced, or when you were diagnosed with cancer. Whatever the worst pain you’ve ever felt is, it’s the exact same as my worst pain. And that goes for everybody you can not compare pain, you cannot compare illness, you cannot compare disability. I always say that if you’ve met one blind person, you’ve met one blind person. We’re not all the same, we don’t all have the same abilities, we don’t all have the same emotions, just like sighted people, just like non-disabled people. We are all unique, and you can’t compare our abilities, you can’t compare our emotions, and you certainly cannot compare the pain that I was feeling losing my vision, and saying “Well your pain doesn’t count because it’s not as great as somebody who’s dying from cancer’s pain.” You just can’t compare those things. It’s not fair, I’ve never experienced that, but this sucks in this moment for me. So I think it’s important to realize that it’s just not appropriate to say that out loud, even if you do think it in your head it’s not appropriate to say something like that out loud to somebody who is feeling devastated in that moment about something that’s going on in their own life. The second one I’m gonna share with you is one where a guy once said to me — I have a lot of crazy things that guys have said to me, like a lot of these are guy-related It’s not because boys are more stupid than girls or anything like that, we’re equally as stupid, just…. in different ways. So, yeah, this one was a guy who came up to me and said, “You’re pretty, you’re smart, you’re funny, I would totally ask you out…. if you were sighted.” I was like “…charming! That’s so nice” And, again, I think I probably touched on this in my dating with disabilities video, which I’ll link down below in case you haven’t seen it, but you know if a guy feels like that about dating me, I don’t want to date him. If you feel like my disability is a burden on you or like you’re such a good person for looking past the fact that I’m disabled and you’re willing to date me anyways like, I don’t wanna date you, sorry no thanks! Next one, number three on the list that I’m sharing today is very similar. This guy asked me out. I said yes. And that’s when he said to me “Okay, well now that we’re like going to go on a date you don’t have to lie to me anymore.” I was like, “Lie to you about what?” He was like “Oh well I know you’re not actually blind.” I was like, really? You know I’m not blind because I didn’t even know I wasn’t blind. I was under the impression that I’m blind. Ah, and he was like “No, no, like you’re too pretty to be blind.” I was like… *sighs* Now, this is something that I hear all the time. And I know a lot of my other blind friends hear, I know that a lot of my other disabled friends in general hear “Oh you’re too pretty to be in a wheelchair.” “Oh, you’re too pretty to have hearing loss.” “Oh, you’re too pretty to be blind.” Or I’ll hear like “Oh. you’re pretty FOR a blind girl.” And it’s like both of these, I don’t take as compliments. Number one: you’re pretty for a blind girl. Okay so I’m pretty, considering I have a disability. You’re pretty like considering you have this major thing wrong with you. this huge turn-off? You’re like pretty considering that. It’s like okay so would I not be considered equally as physically attractive, if I could see? Like if I was a sighted girl, would I be considered ugly if I looked the way I do? I’m only pretty because I have a disability? Like it’s such a bizarre concept to me And I think, my physical disability has nothing to do with my physical appearance. It’s just like really odd to me that people make that connection. And, again, to say like “You’re pretty — you’re too pretty to be blind.” It’s like ok so now you’re saying that all blind people must be ugly. You’re like offending my entire community. All of my blind friends, you’re saying like oh, no, they must be ugly. It’s so inappropriate to say that It’s so inaccurate and it’s funny to me because, so many of my blind friends hear the exact same thing. So if we’re all hearing it, if like were all hearing things like “You don’t look blind.” “You’re too pretty to be blind.” Well then maybe, maybe what you’re saying isn’t a real thing. Yeah. Think about it. Think about it. The next one is one that I honestly just think is so funny and this happened when I was… I believe in grade 11. I was in grade 11 and I just started at a new school So I was like the girl coming in with a guide dog and I had my big dog- Wow that’s a loud truck. I had my big dog, Gypsy, and we’d, you know walk down the halls with her on harness guiding me. And, like I said I was brand new to the school so nobody really knew me. And I heard this guy say to another I guess one of his friends as I walked by he’s like “Oh that’s so cool! I didn’t know they gave midgets guide dogs.” Or like “I didn’t know they gave service dogs to midgets.” Something like that. Something along the lines of I had my service dog… because I’m a midget. Those were his words, not mine. Um, I believe the proper term is Dwarfism, but honestly I’m actually not sure. So, if you guys know the correct term please comment down below and let me know because I would love to be more educated on that topic, on that physical disability, but unfortunately I don’t actually know the correct term. I know its not midget But that’s the term he used And to clarify for people who are like “Why would he even think that?” I’m 4’10.5″ Um, I am very petite. So, I guess because I’m so short he just thought I had Dwarfism? So, yeah. Pretty sure they don’t give service dogs to people with that specific physical disability? Because there’s not really much the dog could do for you? But yeah I thought that was really funny. And then, the last one I’m going to share with you in this video is when I was in the Miss Teen Canada international pageant. For those of you who don’t know that’s a thing I did when I was fifteen years old. And if any of my pageant sisters are watching this this girl who I’m specifically referencing never ended up actually doing the pageant with us. I guess she dropped out. But, prior to the pageant I met up with some of the other contestants Um, for a fundraising event And I was chatting with this girl I believe she was 14, I was 15 and I believe she was a year younger than me. And she turned to me at one point in our conversation and she goes, “You know? You’re so lucky your parents kept you.” I was like “What do you mean?” She was like, “You know, since you’re blind and all. Most people would have chosen to give you away.” And it just like, it blew my mind. And unfortunately, yes, a lot of people do give up their children for adoption when they find out that they have a disability. But I would say the vast majority do keep their children. Do choose to raise their children. And, I just think, even if you think that it’s never appropriate to say that. It’s never appropriate to be like “Wow, you’re such a burden on your family, you’re so blessed they kept you.” It’s like at that time in my life, I had just lost my vision recently, and I was still coming to terms with it and I still felt like a burden on my family. And now I recognize that I’m not, but at the time I still somewhat felt that. And so for somebody to say something like “Gosh you must just be such a handful for your family to deal with.” “I can’t believe they kept you, that’s a shocker.” Like it’s just so, so inappropriate. To not consider how that would make somebody feel is just… not okay. It’s not okay to say something like that. And again it’s like some things, even if you truly believe it, think it in your head; don’t say it out loud. It’s not appropriate to go up to a person with a disability and say things like that. It’s just not. So, that ends this video Those are the top five that I picked to share this time around. Thumbs it up if you enjoyed. If you’re here from Lucy’s channel and you haven’t already hit the subscribe button. I would really love for you to join this little family we’ve got going on here and I’ll see you guys in the next video. Bye!

100 thoughts on “5 Weirdest Things People Said About My Disability

  1. I've been told I'm too clean to have autism (like wow, I shower, amazing!), as well as, often "but you can't have autism, you can talk!" Seriously, we need a facepalm emoji.

  2. I have three things that people have said to that come to mind as clearly definable.

    OK, so, for context, 3 years ago just before I graduated uni, my hip partially-dislocated all by itself when I was in a pool because of my Hypermobility Syndrome, which I was born with (my ligaments are too long in all of my joints which has always caused me pain (mainly in my back)) though I wasn't officially diagnosed until I was 16 (crazy, right?), this incident created a massive tear in the cartilage of my right hip to form – which will never ever heal or go away. I can still stand, walk, run and everything like that, it doesn't restrict my movement but it causes me a great deal of physical pain. On a good day, I can't stand any longer than 20 minutes in a whole day without my legs hurting really badly, and if I insist on standing for longer than that my pain will spread throughout both my legs and get worse and worse until eventually my entire right leg will go completely numb (on a bad day I will be in pain from the moment I get up – my worst days are when I have really bad back pain from my Hypermobility and then period pain [actually being on my period more than doubles the amount of pain I am in in my back and legs too] on top).

    For the first year after I injured my hip, the majority of people outside of my family and close friends that I spoke to, people who may even see me very often, would say various things that basically alludes to them either believing that it's all in my head (I literally have had a MRI scan that shows the injury!!!) or that I'm outright lying. Lying! It really upset me every single time and I often found myself crying to my friends about it. Because there was nothing to see of my injury or pain people didn't believe that it was real. It was only when I started using a cane, which I stopped doing a few months later when my doctor told me that I really shouldn't as it would both affect my posture and cause me wrist pain, that people started to believe me.

    Then the one I still often get, is when I say I can't do something because of my pain restricting me or just when I mention the existence of my pain someone will turn around and say, and I hate this so much, "But you're so young!" My age and pain are separate matters, honestly!

    The third one is kind of really crazy to me. So, my family and I were getting really fed up with everything taking so long with the NHS, literally 2 years of basically nothing, so when a charity offered to pay for me to go private to try and see if my hip could be fixed with an operation or something elsewhere we accepted. Anything to be able to stand, walk or run unrestricted again! Seriously, I'm very much not sporty but I miss being able to be a normal amount of active and I hate how much weight it's caused me to put on. Plus, if I could stand without pain I'd be able to get a job and you have no idea how much I want that, but it's just been a series of 'no's for three entire years. Anyway, what happened is that my mum and I went all the way to London (which is seriously anti-mobility on those underground trains, I actually wanted to cry at times out of pain) and we saw the private doctor and he just told us the biggest load of boulogne!!! Firstly, he basically just told us to just let the NHS do what it was doing (I was waiting and waiting and waiting for a corticosteroid injection… which, btw, did nothing at all for me except be a extremely painful [the morphine didn't work for me] and traumatising experience). And then!!! And this the part that really gets to me, he went on tell me that I didn't have Hypermobility Syndrome – something which I have been diagnosed with since I was 16 and caused my hip injury!!!! When I next saw a doctor from the NHS, who was expert in joints, I said to him, "I do have Hypermobility Syndrome, don't I? I mean, I can bend my hand so that my thumb can touch my wrist…" proceeds to show him
    He said, "Yes, you're clearly moderately Hypermobile." Confirmed once more by both a different doctor to the one who diagnosed me and an expert on joints that I really do have Hypermobility Syndrome!

    I just, some people are just… terrible. They are terrible.

  3. "but you are too young to be sick" ya well chronic illness doesn't care about my age lol or "it's not epilepsy its because you aren't saved (as in I don't pray to a christian god) it's the devil" Wha?!?!

  4. "So you really can't see with your left eye?" I've heard this like million times or "If your sight is so bad why are you always reading isn't it dangerous for you?"

  5. I've never literally gasped at a YouTube video before until I heard what the girl said about your parents. That is just… wow… I can't believe someone said something like that to you

  6. All I know is most people I know or like little women on tv they prefer the term little person but I wonder a lot of the same questions and I can completely see why some of the questions people ask throw you off but I cannot believe someone would ever say something in regards to they are surprised your parents kept you (or whoever and what ever the circumstance may be) that is just hurtful and I agree extremely impolite.

  7. so im autistic and have horrible back pain
    doctor: honestly, we cant find anything seriously wrong with you. maybe its all in your head?
    me, not understanding the turn of phrase: um,,, no??? why would it be in my head??? its in my spine?????

  8. I find it quite impressive you have such great eye contact with the camera and with people. I, having sight, will often avoid peoples eyes or I have to make an effort to do so especially with people I don't know well but that is mostly due to my own form of disability. I have definitely gotten better with it over the years and with the right people (not doctors) helping me (in not doctor esque ways). (I haven't ever really used many doctors except for diagnose for extra time and to qualify for specific school related needs but I am not that high enough on the spectrum to need constant visits or anything I can manage it myself and with the right people around me being kind and accepting. Just wanted to make that clear to anyone else who reads this because I realized what it sounded like earlier.) Continuing back to my point, if you don't mind me asking how do you make such great eye contact if you can't exactly see the camera. Do you see the shadows it makes or something?

  9. I have type 1 diabetes I know this don’t go with this video but people always say “your gonna get diabetes fat” or something about being fat and diabetes and it makes me feel like I’m fat i already feel like I’m fat but idk (they never say that to me)

  10. Y U C K the “at least you don’t have to deal with…” comments make me so angryyyy like how can you try and equate pain related to such different things whether it be a sickness, a physical disability, a mental/neurological condition or anything like that those things aren’t related at all arghhhh

  11. Telling me that other people are suffering as much or more than I am doesn't make me better, it just makes me feel bad for those people and wonder why we as humans don't do more for each other. I'd ask u out if you weren't such a burden (I was married to that guy for 30 yrs) well, I'd go out with u if you weren't an asshole. Apparently all blind women are astonishingly beautiful – the "you're too pretty" deal. I also find it odd that as soon as a person realizes you can't see they talk loudly and slowly like ur a mix of Helen Keller & Forrest Gump. There's a difference between being ignorant and being stupid – after 30 yrs it's my considered opinion that most people are just stupid and self absorbed not lacking information or understanding.

  12. About that last girl i think she dropped off because she was so embaressed of what she said and in the thought that you could win

  13. "At least you are not dying of cancer" … well i almost died of cancer and that was rude to the people that have cancer … i'm sorry but i was ready to cry about this and PEOPLE DO NOT MESS WITH OTHER'S PAIN !!!

  14. I feel like many people have the idea that blind people wear glasses all the time or their eyes don’t look normal so they aren’t considered ‘pretty’. But that’s wrong and it’s why you’re channel is so important and what you do because it removes stereotypes and misconceptions.
    When I was younger I used to think all blind people wear glasses, but that’s because of what I have seen from the media. When I first watched your videos I was kind of surprised how you can look at people normally and make eye contact

  15. Oh by the wY molly people say midget to describe people with dwarfism, and it's used as a very offensive term. The correct term is dwarf I think..

  16. for me with type 1 diabetes its: too much medication is not good for you, you should try to take less /wean off etc. Most of these comments are from my family…. Im sure
    quitting insulin would be really healthy for me 😩😒🙄

  17. I havent had anyone say something (I think people are much more awkward and hesitant with medical disabilities) but it kind of makes me laugh when Im on a crowded bus and Im the only one with two empty seats on either side of me even though there are people standing because Im wearing my face mask XD. Although I have had most people assume that Obi Wan (my SD) is not for me and that I am training her for some sort of organization so Ive had people ask me how it feels to have to give her up.

  18. Some people just like to be insulting to get a reaction. That's more about them than you… Doesn't stop it hurting at the time. On another note… A friend of mine with Spina bifida tells the story of when she was born and the medical staff asked her parents if they wanted them to "drop her". And yes she meant literally so they would be put out of their misery. We have come such a long way but still so far to go. Keep being awesome.

  19. I have a very rare form of color blindness that causes all my colors to be mixed around. Ex. My green looks like blue and my blue looks like green. I also can't see shades, they all look the same. It annoys me when people start asking what this color is for me. I get it that you may be curious but most people act like it's a game. My disability is not a game. If are really curious I can tell you what color for you is for me. People also ask me if I have to have someone dress me? No I can dress myself, I just have all my shirts labeled with a the color to be able to match my accessories to it. Lastly, I have also had so many people ask if I can the differences of people's skin color, but they ask if I can the differences of a black person and a white person. Yes, I can, I can see white and brown correctly, just no shades. But then they ask me if black people are purple, since I say my black is purple and my purple is black. Hello, black people's skin is not actually the color black.

  20. i was at target and someone with a broken leg was in a temporary wheelchair and saw me in my wheelchair not knowing i had a permanent disability and said "i hope get better sweetie" if only he knew that i cant lol

  21. I have a condition that makes me faint (POTS) and the craziest thing I have been told is that: "Just don't faint, just be healthy". Wow what a great idea

  22. I started a blind info channel on tictock if anyone would like to follow I love your channel I am blind and we need each other I wanna put out info jokes and more amandaschoonover37 thanks for reading

  23. I told a girl i have a disability in 2nd grade she responded with "you're not in a wheelchair so your not." lol I was really confused by that as a child.

    "adhd is caused by by lack of caring and a dysfunctional family." this was in 11th grade.

    my teacher wanted me to read a test to a blind classmates but I have dyslexia. I have someone read test to me because I struggle to read. Said to her infront of the whole class in a silent testing classroom. I have dyslexia, I can't read. She responded with "Cant or won't? Wouldn't you like to help a fellow disabilitied classmates. practice makes perfect" I felt so awkward, angry and ashamed because I couldn't help him and everyone was stairing at me. this was in high school.

  24. I can relate to the you're too pretty to blank because I've had two back surgeries and the first one I had when I was 15 years old the second I had when I was 16 years old. And I would always get comments on your too young to have that you're too beautiful you're too pretty you're too thin Etc. So what I started telling people I said if an infant that was just born can have cancer I can have the issue that I have thank you. And I wpuldve been a paraplegic from the waist down had i not had my surgery.

    so instead of saying you're too pretty to have this just make the compliment your beautiful or you're pretty not despite your disability or pretty so I completely understand that and that really irritates me instead of saying oh wow that was really young to have to go through that or wow that must have been really tough when you were so young.

    and I also have the other end of the spectrum of there's nothing wrong with you , you're too pretty or you don't know what that's like to be in pain.

    And I personally have chronic pain and I have had chronic pain since I was 15 years old every single day of my life since i had my 1st back surgery. so I always get that when I had my surgery and I would have a walker people will think I was faking when I would have to use the mobile wheelchairs in the store because I couldn't walk and ive had people in the store say you don't need that so I really feel that Society has an issue when people are young beautiful or you're not the quote on quote look like that disability you end up getting looked at for it and I hate it. Therws no"typical" look fir a disability n people need to be more educated on this subject.

  25. I've had both "You don't look disabled." and "You aren't REALLY disabled." concerning things such as tourettes, seizures (someone also said I faked seizures because I was capable of making jokes about my condition), psychosis, P.T.S.D., Asthma, Elhers Danlos Syndrome. All the fun shit I have😂

  26. I hear that one all the time about how I'm lucky my parents kept me. I'm in a wheelchair. I also hear "I'll pray for you" and "can I go for a ride in your wheelchair. I'm tired"

  27. I have a personality disorder (basically borderline) and people say the shittiest things about BPD when they don't know I have it, but then when I say that I do they tell me they never expected that from me and act like it's compliment??

  28. Among my favourite quotes is Hanlon's razor which states, "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity." That quote has helped me to not get overly mad over the years.

  29. Dwarfism is generally defined as being below 4'10" as an adult (from my quick googling) and there are people with dwarfism who are taller than that, so you're actually smaller than some people with dwarfism.

  30. I hate to be the one to say this, but the actual criteria for legal dwarfism is any fully grown human under 4’11” 😬
    I know this because my ex was 4’11” and was just on the cusp, and current girlfriend is 3’10”

  31. I'm loving the old Molly videos with the long hair. I am so jealous of the way you can pull off short, and long hair.

  32. Dwarfism is the name of the condition; "little person" is the preferred descriptor that I've seen for someone who has it.

  33. Ok so #3 I do understand what you mean but if a little 6-8 year old said that how would you explain that everyone is perfect?

  34. I work in a clothing stor. I just happen to catch a blind lady walk in. I greated her as she first steped in the door and helped her pick out a years worth of cloths she bought. I descriped everthing to her in detail

  35. I got a service dog for PTSD/DID and someone told me I should be seeking "a real solution like emdr" which is a form of therapy that worked for her … but not for me lol

  36. I personally don’t have a disability but I would really like to be more educated on disability’s! Ur channel has been amazing to me! ❤️ I hope to meat u some day

  37. I’m as short as u and very petite too but definitely not a dwarf yet I’ve had people think that I was ! And telling me oh thank god im not like you! So I guess disabled or not we all have our fair share of idiots commenting on our looks, disabilities, etc

  38. A dude at work once asked me; "do you feel like you have to stay with your boyfriend because of your depression?"

  39. My friend is getting a guide dog she’s 4’1 but she isn’t getting one for her height. It’s for her arthritis! It’s a mobility dog.

  40. Someone at my doctor's clinic said that because I have scoliosis (28 degrees at the time) that I can't be straight. Because that makes sense. Because my spine is unnaturally bent, it must affect my sexuality.

  41. Molly I was once on a train with my cane and some random man says to me, ‘I’d rather be deaf than blind.’ I didn’t know how to respond, luckily these sorts of things don’t really upset me but I can’t understand, why would you say that to somebody? It’s like me saying to a black person that I’d rather be Asian than black. Lol some people

  42. People always say things like; "You don't look Autistic?", "Oh, so you are like Rain Man.", "Wow, my child/co-worker-neighbour-friend-cousin-etc has Autism, so I know exactly how you feel.", "I am so sorry. That must be so hard for you.", "I am so sorry. I feel your pain." Like being blind, if you met one Autistic person, you have met one Autistic person. We are not all the exact same.

  43. It is dwarfism, and they prefer to be called Little People. It's 4'10" or smaller — so you're not actually short enough. My mother, on the other hand, was 4'9" — so she was. But would cheerfully fight you for suggesting it. Her hair was bright red and she liked to say dynamite comes in small packages…it wasn't a joke it was a warning 😛

  44. I have anxiety and once I was having attack and someone said
    “Why?” They also said something like “can you just stop freaking out” like yes I can stop having a mental illness at the snap of a finger 🙄

    Another person once said to my friend who had depression
