Wheelchair Warrior Takes on Ableist Family in Epic Vacation Showdown!

Well, well, well... looks like we've got ourselves a real family feud on our hands! Our wheelchair-bound heroes have had enough of being left out of the family vacations, and they're not going down without a fight. Despite their pleas for accessible destinations, the family just can't seem to get it through their thick skulls. Now, with Grandpa's last hurrah on the horizon, tensions are reaching a boiling point. Will our protagonist stand their ground and skip the trip, or will they cave to the family's guilt-tripping and name-calling? The internet has some thoughts on this one, and they're not holding back! Let's dive into the juiciest responses and see where the chips fall in this epic battle of ableism vs. accessibility!
