I really liked this bit: :woot:

If you have ever watched the Disney film Dumbo, you will have witnessed some out and out ABLEIST bullying, to the Pachyderm star of the show. Disabled by his huge ears, the titular hero is treated as a freak, and made to jump ( as he thinks), to his death, to entertain a crowd. Miraculously his flapping ears means he can fly.

I am an elephant who can't fly.
