Interpersonal Consequences of Ableism: What Happens When People with Disabilities Confront Patronizing Help?

People with disabilities routinely face a dilemma in dealing with patronizing help: While accepting unsolicited assistance may be harmful for its recipients, confronting the helper can lead to negative interpersonal repercussions. Across four survey experiments using hypothetical vignettes depicting interactions between a disabled person and a nondisabled pedestrian, this talk explores the consequences of confronting patronizing help for people with disabilities and how gender might interact with disability status to shape these consequences. Findings are discussed through the lens of ableism, intersectionality, and disability justice.
