heyyy @bingabong

yeah, I get what you mean about feeling awkward, especially because you don't wanna offend people. tbh, people have different preferences for how they want to be referred to... so it might be better just to ask and see what they prefer. what do you think?

Hey @bingabong,

Nah, it's not rude to ask. It shows the other person that you respect their feelings and don't want to offend them ☺️

I imagine many people do like being referred to as disabled. People in the community have reclaimed this label, but yeah, always good to check. What do you think?
