An excellent article:

“What I do know, or at least believe to be true, is that disability remains invisible and/or hard for able-bodied people to look at, because unlike racial, cultural, or sexual identities, it is an identity that any able-bodied person could possibly face. And let’s be honest, that’s scary. Most identities are set in stone. You are heterosexual or you are not. You are a person of color or you are not. Disability is something that can happen to any person at any time — and that’s a reality that’s hard to face. It’s hard to face when you are disabled, why wouldn’t it be hard to face when you are able-bodied and aware that you could become disabled?”
