Why does ableism cause harm?

Even with the best intentions, you can’t help someone you view as less.

No matter what your intentions, you can’t help someone if you see them as less, if you treat them as less.

Treating someone as a lesser being automatically hurts them no matter what positive results might come alongside.

Ableism is fundamentally about contempt, not hate or indifference.
