1. This is likely illegal. Battery? Kidnapping? Assault?
2. Morgan decided to take to her facebook page to advertise what a great person she is. It went viral (over 500000 shares).
This is the worst kind of inspiration porn, turning a violation into a positive act.
I asked him if I could assist him with his shopping today, and he, quite grumpily, said that he was doing just fine and was not getting much anyways. Me, being as stubborn as I am, insisted and proceeded to push him and tell him a little about myself.HE SAID NO. NO MEANS NO.
He interrupted me and said that he only needed help to the door, to which I picked up where I had left off before he interrupted me.She said - "HE. INTERRUPTED. ME." While she violated his autonomy.
I told him about Fayetteville, and my horses, and my nephews (I had parked a good ways away from the doors). And when I reached the doors, I continued to push him and talk. We reached the produce area and I asked him to tell me about himself. He reluctantly looked at me and began telling me that he lived in Sod- Lincoln County, and that he just recently lost his wife. I asked him if he was a veteran, to which he replied that he was- but with pain on his face, so I changed the subject and asked if he had made a shopping list.It goes on and on. The original Facebook post is here, if you can stand it.
This woman violated a disabled veteran. And she's being praised for it. She's being covered in the media as a hero for our time.
I don't blame Morgan, or at least not only Morgan, she's following the norms she's been taught.
The media is perpetuating a culture in which disabled people are dehumanized, touched without their consent, and their violators praised as heroes.
