This morning, let’s go down a little straw rabbit hole and talk about how a #StrawBan could affect disabled people. #SuckItAbleism A photo of Mia with some bubble mango milk tea.
Straws, especially bendy straws, were invented to help ppl take medicine & help patients in hospitals drink liquids. The plastic straw was sterile, tolerate hot/cold liquids, & stood up to biting/chewing/fidgeting Disabled ppl do w/o cutting their mouths. #SuckItAbleism
Nondisabled ppl also found them extremely handy (accessibility tools often become integral parts of society including ramps, elevators, and electric doors). So, the straws became ubiquitous in everyday life. #SuckItAbleism #StrawBan

Some of the commentary on straw bans reads an awful lot like "Well, if your butler is too busy to wash a re-usable straw for you, that's what the underbutler is for."

If you follow me for an appreciable length of time you know that I block people who send their unsolicited advice when I mention my insomnia, and you also know why.

If you don't, I'll go over the reason again.
Insomnia for me is a life-long problem. In the course of decades of dealing with it, I have done substantial research, and heard a lot of advice, and experimented to learn what works for me and what doesn't.
