Ste Walker On His Crohn’s Facebook Post: Why Should Disability Have A Face?
A man with Crohn’s Disease who was told he didn’t “look poorly enough” to use a disabled toilet is asking: “Why should disability have a face?”
Ste Walker, who’s 24 and from Halifax in west Yorkshire, is speaking after his Facebook post about the experience went viral.
It’s been shared tens of thousands of times around the world and Ste admits he didn’t expect it “to get so mental like it has.”
He said, “It’s human nature to be judgemental,” but, “you don’t know what that person’s been through.”
Ste added, “Why should you physically have to see something for it to be there?” He’s now hoping some good will come of what happened: “If I can just change just one person to stop and think and not go up to that person then I feel like I’ve achieved something.”
