    Yeah I'm sorry I've experienced this discrimination first -hand. When I studied at university some of the staff there glared at me a lot, quite frankly it was getting really scary. I was also screamed at, followed around and a lecturer made faces at me when I went into her office. There was a disabled girl in the one class, she used a walker, and the lecturer I mentioned was treating her badly as well.

    When I left university I believed things would get better. However I am struggling to get a job. I had an appointment for a certain job interview and when I got there I was merely told, "The vacancy is no longer available." A few weeks later I saw an ad for the exact same job. Being jobless now gives people the excuse to tell me, "You're a lazy good for nothing." However I've seen attractive people being jobless for years and no one said anything about it.
