"...from my own point of view, the whole country could be level with accessible toilets on every corner and I would still be disabled, partly due to other people's attitudes to me and also because of my own individual medical problems. Not that I think the medical model of disability (which I was basically brought up to believe in before discovering the social model) is accurate but there are certainly elements relevant to my life, such as pain and fatigue which no amount of equality theorising is likely to diminish."
