No: computers are inherently disabled
Machines can never do X, where X is any variety of abilities that are regarded as distinctly human—e.g. being friendly, having a sense of humour, making mistakes, or thinking about oneself.



Argument anticipated by Alan Turing 1950.

Note: a great deal of the debate represented on these maps takes the form of disability arguments—arguments that machines can't be creative, can't use analogies, can't be conscious, and so forth—and so could also be thought of as supports for this claim.
