"We're not werewolves": Woman shuts down man who thinks disabled people need a curfew

When a tweep, Daniel Lawson, made a comment about people with disabilities, Jennifer Lee Rossman decided to shut him down once and for all.

Lawson took to social media to make a suggestion that disabled parking should only be valid from nine in the morning to five in the afternoon, Monday to Friday.

He added he does not know why people with "genuine disabilities" would be out beyond those times.

It was in response to this tweet that Rossman, who according to her profile is in a wheelchair, came back with a genius clap back.

"We're disabled, Daniel, we're not werewolves.", she wrote, shutting him down.

Tweeps quickly sided with Rossman, a sci-fi writer and self-proclaimed 'geek'.

"It must be amazing to build an entire personal political ideology around "What tiny thing inconvenienced me a little today? We need to stop that.", one tweep wrote.

Some tweeps turned to sarcasm to poke fun at Lawson's idea to put in certain times for disabled parking.

"Seems like a sensible thought process, we could get the police to enforce a curfew, maybe sew discreet labels, clearly visible of course, onto their disabled clothes. Over time move them to convenient camps with others where work will make them free.", Danny Thomas wrote.

Her comment even inspired people to start spit-balling about the possibility of an actual disabled werewolf book.

However, their complaints meant nothing to Lawson, who said he would not be bullied by a gang of losers on mobility vehicles and wheelchairs.
