Thing I can't stand when people write poorly about disability: using disability as a metaphor, or physical representation of a moral quality.

Thing I have seen in multiple screenwriting textbooks actually assigned by colleges: the instruction to only use disability if it's a metaphor and a physical representation of a moral quality.

For instance, if willful refusal to acknowledge facts, then physical blindness.
Ablist as all hell, but somehow considered a tool to use in fiction.
