I’m afraid to admit that I’m not at all surprised by this news. ”Online disability hate crime has hit record levels in England and Wales, surging by a third in one year, figures show.” As alarming as that is, I’m afraid it’s just a sign of the times: everyone seems to be getting angrier and angrier, lashing out at minorities including those of us with disabilities. Arseholes like Trump and Farage have given the green light, in some, to express prejudices which would previously have been frowned upon, so that these uneducated, unthinking trolls now think its big or manly to call people names and resort to the most base, disgusting insults. The result is increased anger and hostility all round. With everyone getting so angry, especially online, I dread to think where this is heading.
