Who thinks like that? I have a lot of respect for people with disabilities. They are a lot stronger than those of us who have no disabilities.

From my experience with being disabled, people are supposedly "jealous" because they think that I'm trying to make the world cater to me, which isn't the case.

Be careful when you use the word "always;" that implies that there are never people who feel otherwise and that's obviously not the case. I've always- yes, ALWAYS- had a certain respect for people with disabilities because they generally have to overcome more than the rest of us do- being disrespected by rude and... More

Most people are uncomfortable around the disabled unless it's someone they know well. However, I don't believe that many people feel superior to the disabled. Unfortunately, too many people think that if someone is physically disabled that they must also be mentally challanged. Which of course, is not true... More
