What makes you laugh?
Tim Stratmann: My kids.
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Tim Stratmann: Be thoroughly honest in public. That would probably irritate or even hurt people and I would look like an insensitive asshole. It would have more disadvantages than advantages for me.
Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Tim Stratmann: My partner, because she accepted me for who I am. Even before my diagnosis. In her presence, I can be myself. Most of the time. That can be very annoying sometimes.
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled in your country. What would you do first?
Tim Stratmann: I would work to put an end to the madness of the authorities and to ensure that every disabled person gets his or her rights and can lead a decent life. It is not acceptable that offices seriously believe in miracle cures for certain disabilities or refuse helpful compensation for disadvantages. I would involve disabled people as experts in disability issues.
