Mairs description of herself and her disability lead me to believe that she assumes among her audience, most of the readers do not have a disability. She describes to the audience how she, just like everyone else, does laundry, drives a car, eats pizza, etc. She even says that she is an advertisers dream: Ms. Great American Consumer. And yet the adveretisers, who determine nowadays who will get represented publicly and who will not, deny the exisistence of me and my kind absolutely. (Mairs)
Some of her examples and the things Mair compared and contrasted throughout this essay were quite comical. She wrote about how she asked a local advertiser why he have people with disabilities in his ads, and the advertiser replied, We dont want to give people the idea that our product is just for the handicapped. (Mair). Mairs reply to this absurdity with, If you saw me pouring puppy biscuits, would you think these kibbles were only for the puppies of the cripples?
Mairs concludes with her thesis at the end of the essay, and talks about how we as a society need to see disability as normal and insert it daily into our lives. This is the only way to get the world used to disabilities.
