Diply Social Team
Diply | Diply

We've all been in situations where we try to be considerate and accommodating, but sometimes things don't go as planned. A young woman (20F) found herself in the midst of unexpected drama when she tried to accommodate her friend's autistic sister, Sarah (14F), by giving her a special cup designed to prevent choking on strawberry-shaped ice cubes. Little did she know that her good intentions would be met with accusations of ableism from her friend, Jen (21F). 😕🍓

Was It Really Ableist? 🧐

Our protagonist thought she was doing the right thing by giving Sarah a special cup to prevent choking on strawberry-shaped ice cubes. But Jen's accusation of ableism left her questioning her actions. Sarah, on the other hand, was thrilled with her 'special' cup and even took it home. 🌸🥤 One can't help but wonder if Jen's reaction was truly warranted or if she was just being overly sensitive. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💭
