B.) Social and Cultural Norms – society is geared towards achieving and maintaining personal beauty, youth and ﬁtness of the body
C.) Media portrayal – disabled people are portrayed as sick, suffering, looking for help and having special needs that people need to be aware about Prefer our evidence – our authors are professors of psychology that performed a study to show the psychological tendencies toward ableism AND, here is comparative evidence - Transportation infrastructure is NOT sufficient to overcome the multiple barriers people with disabilities face

This paper addresses local ground transportation; beyond its scope are issues of air, sea, and intercity travel for people with disabilities. It has three major sections. The following section gives an overview of the travel patterns of people with disabilities, highlighting the problems that they face with various modes of travel and the crucial role of both walking and private vehicles in their mobility—whether or not they drive. The next major section, the third in this paper, examines the community transportation resources provided to travelers with disabilities by public transportation systems, other public and nonprofit agencies, and the private sector. The final section suggests that more and better accessible transportation isa necessary but not a sufficient resource for overcoming the multiple barriers faced by most people with disabilities.
