17. You may be misunderstanding. Being able-bodied
gives you privilege. It's not a privilege that you earn...it just exists.
Able-bodied people are not inconvenienced in their daily activities by things like stairs, heavy doors, and other issues. They don't notice that they can go where they want, when they want, and how they want. That is the privilege of being able-bodied.
The point of this chart is to show you ways that privilege accrues to you automatically.
Being aware of how one is privileged is important. Others are not always similarly privileged. Being aware of that, and acting accordingly, you can minimize the impact your innate privilege has on others.
