The Lame Dame

Mar 5

I’m also trying to write something about how fucked up it is that not a single amputee had to stand up to say “Not all Amputees are murders” in the wake of Pastorious’ murder charges

but when the disability in the news in mental health related, then the news will bring in experts and people who have said condition, parents of children with said condition who fear for their lives, and basically just makes this giant ugly mess that taints anyone with that condition.

I mean really, how many autistic people said “Hold up, we are far more likely to be the VICTIMS of violence than the perpetrators” post sandy hook? 

The fact that a person’s brain is defective in any way automatically translates into the capacity and likelihood for violence in the larger social mindset, and that’s wrong.
