"This Young Woman was accused of "making a man look dumb"

I saw this on Yahoo. Story is from AITA reddit thread. She parked in a handicapped parking spot, a man yelled at her. So she showed him her prosthetic leg.


Most if not all the comments said she was NTA. The group she was with was embarrassed and said she should've just "moved on" What do you guys think? Did this woman go to far? Or did she have every right to respond to the man that way?#Abelism


Do you all feel you learned an honest history in school of do you think it was biased?

I think historical bias can cause truma for a lot of people because it teaches us to be inherently bias twoards ourselves and others I am wondering of others see this too? Have you had to unlearn things?

TikTok Silencing & Banning Mental Health, LGBTQ+ Advocates

Tiktok has recently banned one of the most positive, uplifting people on the platform, Mamma Jill Wallace. As an Atheist, this Christian woman warms my heart to know that there are people like her who are there for the LGBTQ+ community that share her beliefs and even those who don't. She doesn't exclude anyone from her messages and has made an insurmountable impact on the LGBTQIA+ community. She opened up recently on a live stream about her personal struggles with mental health including suicide as a way to share her experiences and to let people know they're not alone. She spoke about it as a means of prevention to help others who maybe were struggling in the moment with everything going on around us. Tiktok turned around and banned her for it permanently. It is appalling. It is disgusting. It is PRO SUICIDE to ban this woman. Tik Tok might as well have just handed someone struggling a blade or drove them to a ledge. Because of their actions, they told people struggling with suicidal tendencies or ideation that they should basically just do it and that they aren't wanted or cared about. They contributed to mental illness and every single day she remains banned, is another day that Tiktok gives its approval and supports the suicide of its viewers regardless of what they say. This is repugnant. You can claim algorithms all you want. But guess what? Algorithms and AI are trained by human data input and controlled via that same way. They don't decide willy nilly. They have set boundaries. They go by what you told them. So the problem is you, TikTok. Get your crap together because you're causing irreparable harm. You took a woman who has suffered and had the ability to reach and help someone else suffering by sharing her own struggle and you silenced her and invalidated her. I don't care what your beliefs are or anything. This isn't about them. It's about human beings. How dare you do that to this woman and the millions of others who suffer from this very real issue directly and indirectly. This is beyond Abelism. This is pure discrimination in action. Not to mention, Tiktok regularly silences LGBTQIA+ voices and then does this during Pride month. Beyond shameful.
For those who follow mamma, she is not giving up. She is staying strong and has created another TikTok. She isn't going anywhere wether they like it or not and that's the kind of boldness that we need most right now. And the world is a better place because of her continued presence. Everyone of any belief should always have someone who advocates for them and she is an integral part of the LGBTQIA+ community regardless of your beliefs. Without people like her around we wouldn't have half the rights we do today and we sure wouldn't be able to weather the storm we are in currently in the US and throughout the world.
