How did we get here? By letting the days go by. It has been slow coming, this crazy idea that everyone deserves fair treatment. We are all at risk of being shamed or excluded because we are in some way different. There is debate about which bathroom transsexuals should use. I think we should be able to use any restroom that's open. We should all have to wait in line; to me that is only fair. I shouldn't be flippant about these things because there are actual court cases, right now, in America over such issues. That's why I think I would be doing you a disservice if I did not give you this language to talk about culture and discrimination. We're halfway there, but equal rights have to reach around the world. Therefore, we must be able to name it if we want to be able to talk about it.
We have the hyphens to sort out in the text about inclusion. Did you choose these words to hyphenate: well-being, on-the-job, forty-year-old, one-size-fits-all,
re-used. As I wrote, there is some guess work and going with your gut. If you find two different answers, chose the answer that suits your text best.
In the second text the answers are as follows: There are stereotypes about what people who are challenged physically can do. In many societies exclusionist policies that discriminate against those who are challenged are part of the culture.
Please enjoy one of my favourite videos! If you have ideas or comments put them on Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you.
