From what I’ve seen, people (in the area where Noboxes lives) have at least 3 different things going on that I do not find normal…
they treat her as incapable (handicapped to them, means something close to brain-dead and physically helpless as well)
the neighbors have bought and trained dogs to bark at any sound from her property, to the point she arrived with the cops on site, they even accused her of having a secret way out and off the property, despite her being gone in a car.
3)There seems to be an air of “handicapped people should be in institutions, not owning their own property, building useful things, or running their own businesses”
These are things I have witnessed, around her.
Her reactions tend to reinforce their mindset, but around them, I get mental images of “Deliverance”… Backwards, back-woods, inbred, genetic deficient… (you get the idea)
The disparity is such a clash that it really affects every aspect of her life, there.
