Speaking as a disabled person, I had this bizarre expectation that when I got a service dog the whole world would be nicer to me because they would see at a glance that I was handicapped and might need some extra help.
Wouldn't you know it, just the opposite happened.
If amirite was a town I think I'd move in 'cause you all seem to have common sense.
whom should we make fun of? no seriously give me an target demography.
How can people disagree with this?
That disabled/diseased person may be a total asshole who deserves to be made fun of. Not everyone with a disability is sweet and humble.
What about the people that let themselves get so fat, that they become disabled? Serious question.
Then they don't have a disease. It's a disease when you can't control it.
But it's a disability. Legally speaking.
Why shouldn't people who make fun of able bodied people get "punched in the face?"
Mmm, yes, SPLENDID way to react to things you disagree with, punch the person in the face instead of telling them why you think they're wrong and explaining how you feel about it. Fight douches with douchery? Sounds proactive. By all means, continue, and see where that gets you.
OP said that was what the people deserve, not that that's what someone should do in such a situation.
Also, I replied to you twice because I like this wording better.
I refuse to watch comedians that make fun of the mentally disabled. Which limits me to like 3 comedians. The limit of comedy is making fun of those who can't defend themselves.
You should watch Louis CK the emanating from him is infinite.
He's one of the comedians I refuse to watch. I hate that guy. He's worthless trash.
He doesn't make fun of anyone...
Well he's not making fun of the mentally challenged - he's making fun of Sarah Palin. He's also known for advocating that words mean nothing, and he clearly wasn't genuinely insulting the kid since that entire section of what he was saying was about Sarah Palin (if you've only heard it through this guy's video, you haven't heard the whole section), not the mentally challenged.
However, if that does genuinely bother you, well, sorry. Hope you can find a comedian that interests you.
It's a fucking joke...
That's wrong because it physically hurts...
Well they should learn how to take a joke.
AppAwesome, jokes are fine in my opinion, but what this is talking about is something equivalent to racism and the like, not racist jokes.
I honestly don't care. Just because words don't physical bruises doesn't mean they don't hurt. And what about the people bullied in to self harm or suicide? Since physical pain seems to be the only thing you can register then what about those people?
I hope someone pepper sprays you in the face on April 1st.
