After dealing with health care providers who assumed she couldn’t have sex and constantly questioned her lifestyle and partner choices, her first goal was was to help able-bodied people understand that folks with disabilities aren’t children and can be trusted to know what their own bodies need and can handle. “We have agency over our own bodies,” she said. “We have the right to make decisions about what we want to do and what we don’t want to do. Getting past that attitude is probably one of my biggest hindrances.”
