Iread Ca­role Casan’s let­ter (is­sue 31, 2 Au­gust), say­ing she’s used a dis­abled toi­let when there was a queue for the ladies, and also parks in a dis­abled park­ing bay. My 14-year-old son has cere­bral palsy and is autis­tic. It’s hard enough find­ing suitable chang­ing fa­cil­i­ties for my son, who needs a chang­ing bench and hoist and can’t use a stan­dard toi­let.

If ev­ery­one had Ca­role’s at­ti­tude, then th­ese dis­abled toi­lets wouldn’t ever be avail­able for those who need them. As for the park­ing bay, there’s a say­ing: ‘If you want my park­ing space, take my dis­abil­ity with it.’

Life’s al­ready hard, please don’t make it worse with your ig­no­rance. Terri Mill­ward, Poole
