The Swedish government recently put up advertisements of fake disabled people (abled people’s heads on disabled people’s bodies) with text that is meant to encourage abled businesses to hire disabled people. While this is a great thing on the surface, the situation becomes more complicated after it was found out that disabled people did not consent to having their heads replaced by those of abled famous celebrities, and that the text throws a major pity party with, “If you don’t hire these poor disabled people, who else will?”

While it is true that the unemployment and underemployment rate for disabled people are high and businesses should be encouraged to hire disabled people, to essentially treat disabled people like children is not the way to go. Instead, simply encourage others by saying that disabled people can do various jobs.

It is important when talking about disabled people to include disabled people. Disabled people should have been in charge of creating this ad rather than the abled Swedish government.
