How natural disabilities are evolutionary traits

Firstly, let’s define those concepts:

  • Disabilities:Disability is an impairment that may be physical, cognitive, intellectual, mental, sensory, developmental, or some combination of these that results in restrictions on an individual’s ability to participate in what is considered “normal” in their everyday society. A disability may be present from birth or occur during a person’s lifetime.
  • Evolutionary traits:  characteristics that the human race developed within millenniums of evolution 

The first thing to think about is: how can anything be a evolutionary trait? Well, with the dying of generations, only the strongest survive, that is what make some traits carry on, and some do not. That until humans discovered that they could just fix themselves and stop evolution, therefore perpetuating mistakes like bad sight and muscle atrophy (things that definitely would kill humans left to right) and ignore mental advantages like ADHD and Synesthesia.

But, how some disabilities are evolutionary traits? After all, we call them disabilities for a reason! Well, if they actually help survival and make you better (in some way) than anyone surrounding you, and you were born with it, then how dare you question it even? How dare you seek medication?

Embrace it
