So I saw this hashtag and thought - wow, how cool in so many ways!
First, it really highlights something I’ve found to be true with absolutely everyone I’ve ever met. Whether you quickly notice it or learn it through digging a bit deeper into a conversation with someone, there is something simply beautiful, inspiring, motivating, and well, hot about everyone.
It may sound simplistic to say or notice, but I’m constantly amazed at how no two people are alike. Like snowflakes falling from the sky, every single person is unique in their own special way.
And... this is why tweets with this all-inclusive disability hashtag held my attention for over an hour. First, because it aligns with my belief that everyone is special in their own way. And second because of the fun, confidence, and pride that is so prominent in the tweets and pics.
Here’s just a splash of some of these fun tweets. I encourage you to check more of them out yourself, or, even join in the fun yourself!
“#DisabledPeopleAreHot , worthy, strong, sexy, attractive, desirable etc..”
“#DisabledPeopleAreHot Oh, YES! We most certainly are!”
“Into this hashtag. Forever feelin’ myself. #DisabledPeopleAreHot”
“I mean, facts are facts #DisabledPeopleAreHot”
“Thanks for inspiring me to post a pic where I feel strong, powerful, and hot. #DisabledPeopleAreHot”
“I’m in a chair but still pulling off this crop top💓”
“I'm chronically ill and fabulous #DisabledPeopleAreHot”
“I'll join this hashtag conversation! #DisabledPeopleAreHot. Love who you are. And be confident. Boom.”
“Da** skippy... #DisabledPeopleAreHot”
“I hate posting selfies but da** my fellow hotties on #DisabledPeopleAreHot are giving me so much life.”
“#DisabledPeopleAreHot is undeniably the best hashtag ever created. Like, I read it and my confidence immediately skyrocketed”
I joined in on the fun and posted a purple hair pic of myself – a little fun from home last Halloween!
The self-love, fun, and humor displayed in these tweets and pics were all so wonderful to see. All too often we are so hard on ourselves - for the seen and unseen parts of our illness. To me this hashtag represents the letting go of all of that and having some fun beyond the seriousness that is pervasive in our lives.
#DisabledPeopleAreHot – my new favorite hashtag! If you haven’t already joined the fun and feel comfortable doing so, let’s keep this hashtag going!
