For the last century, society has tried to accept what they preceive to be not normal by creating a subsection of humanity that seggrigates those who have a physical or cognitive variation of what a human being is at birht.
Being given labels has been the way we catogorize these variations. The terms have come from degrading, cruel and ignorant places where we choose language to desctibe our state of being.
What if we choose to decribe humanity by its function.
We are a bionic race.
This is a normal image

We are an intergrated society. Cell pohone,tablets,computers, we use them for everything from communication to operations. There is not a single task that humanity does not perform where robotics or computer software is not imnvolved.
Yechnology has kept me alive from the rehabilitation from my car accident at the age of seven, the management of type 1 Diabetes to the ability to see again.
The question is, do we replace the word "disabled" with the word "Bionic"? I think we should just accept that we are a BIONIC race and move forward in creating a world where humanity is once again inclusive in it's view of civilization.
