I struggle with renting or buying housing in an area that I can afford and where I wish to reside. If a traffic cop pulls me over, it is most likely due to some component of my identity, such as my race or ethnicity. People routinely mispronounce my first or last name. When people meet me, they assume I'd be better off dead or a burden because of one or more of my cultural identities. When I perform well in difficult situations, I either surprise or inspire people or am referred to as a credit to individuals like me. I've been the victim of sexual harassment and assault and was afterward asked to explain my actions and justify my presence in that situation. After revealing a part of my identity, I was treated differently. I've had to listen to other people converse about how they would “die” if they ever developed my condition or had a child with my condition. When organizing events and activities, I must consider my level of pain (mental, emotional, and physical). I have felt pressured to change my appearance, mannerisms, or language to avoid being judged based on one or more of my cultural identities. X X x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x
