social distancing simulations

Black text on a light teal background:
So much of the broad response to calls for social distancing due to Covid-19 is reminding me (just on a mass scale) of disability simulations where people do something for a short time (like use a wheelchair, cover their eyes, etc) to better “understand what it’s like” to be a wheelchair user or have low vision etc —> and then think they know what it’s like to live with it all the time —> and then often proceed to tell those of us who are already deeply in-the-know what it’s like, or that -while it was supes weird or disorienting!- it’s not so bad and we’ll all get back to ‘normal’ soon, as they go about their usual lives. Please don’t do that.
