>From Racheli I've been thinking about the point made by someone, that it's illegal to dis-allow service dogs from common guestrooms. An important issue underlying such law is - that saying that we must allow service dogs actually means that we might make a space inaccessible to people who are allergic to dogs. Ie: So far, issues of chemical sensitivities are not common knowledge, and certainly aren't being looked at as involving issues of *accessiblity*, (unlike some other disabilities). I suspect that incorporating accommodation for the chemically- sensitive is going to be resisted mightily, because it could have huge implications regarding how we build and maintain spaces: Starting with banning toxic building materials, to banning most furnishings; cleaning supplies; perfumes people wear, etc. ... Just food for thought, R. _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.communityforum.net/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l
