What if a grumpy Eevee evolved into a Sylveon against his will and he doesn’t know how to control his ribbons so they get tangled and just flop everywhere and he just hates everything like ‘fuck Flareon woulda been better than this’
This is a great example of how universal design can benefit all people with disabilities as well as those without disabilities. I would hope, also, that they include providing gender-neutral facilities as well into their universal design principles.
OH MY GOSH THE DIFFERENT TEXTURED CONCRETE INSTEAD OF THE STUPID YELLOW BUMPY THINGS.

Those yellow bumps - tactile paving - are guides for people who are blind and/or have vision impairments. They weren’t intended as aids for wheelchair-users (unless those wheelchair users are also blind). That said, they really suck for wheelchair users, and it’s nice that designers are finding ways to meet both blind people’s and wheelchair users’ (and blind wheelchair users’) needs!
Hey I’ve actually been there! In one of my engineering decals at Cal I helped brainstorm ideas for a wheelchair accessible meeting table that would be used there :D
Seriously overworked commission oh well~
