Why Do You Stare At People With Disabilities Pt. 2

During the first part of this video series I asked random strangers what were they thinking when they stared at me wearing shorts and walking in my prosthetic legs. Their answers ranged from “I was just curious” to “I really admire you” to the overwhelming “are you a veteran?” Some admitted feeling a bit sorry for me and my situation but said that my positive vibe and smile quickly erased any feeling of pity.

Part 2 continues in the Baltimore MD Inner Harbor as I ask more random strangers the question, why do you stare at people with disabilities. Hopefully the information gained will empower those of us in the disabled community who struggle with the pain of being stared at from the general public. Hopefully we will realize that most people who stare do it out of curiosity and not pity.
