"wait, what? most of our problems are actually caused by an inflexible society where our needs COULD be accommodated but aren't because the medical model of disability is the most prominent in medical communities." if they tell us and culture at large that we're a problem that needs to be fixed or separated from the "normal" people then they don't have to put in the work of seeing us as actual people who just need a differing set of tools. nor do they have to give us those tools.
