Misconception #1: We can't speak for ourselves.
Ever notice when you're in a restaurant and the hostess asks the person you are with, where you would like to sit?
Guess what? We are able to communicate ourselves! Even if someone can’t speak, chances are they have found a way to express themselves. We lead active, productive lives and have no problem answering a question or finding another restaurant!
Misconception #2: If you're married, you must've married before you sustained your injury/disability.
No, actually we do date and have active social lives. We have plenty to offer in a relationship. Many can see our strengths, attributes and beauty!
Misconception #3: Women with disabilities don’t have sex.
We can. We do. We like.
Women with disabilities have the same needs and desires as everyone else. They are also used to being creative and thinking outside-the-box, so watch out!
