You’re too middle class
You’ve been to university
You don’t look or sound like someone in need
You’re a dodgy benefits scrounger
You’re not even employed
You’ll trash the place before I can say ‘cunt’
Society is perceived to be made up of rigid caricatures
And you’re expected to fit into exactly one of them at any given time
Regardless of whether this is contradicted tomorrow
You must be a canonical stereotype in each circumstance
And that will be chosen for you
It saves thought
Don’t you fucking dare cross any of these lines
And be an individual person.

That is all so true. Laughed out loud at the “You’ll trash the place before—-“. I notice that the powers-that-be expect disabled people to act subservient to them so they can feel like a saint for being nice to them. If you act with self-respect and don’t lick their bums, they get real mad.
Yes totally right, you nailed it (at least with the first bit for my experience).
This is righteous anger. God made us unique and certainly no mode to fit in.
