About 20 years ago. Before losers like you got their panties in a twist over humour.
I can remember when we'd watch racists like George Jefferson and Archie Bunker and laugh our asses off about it. But then we weren't a bunch of over-sensitive snowflakes still sucking on mommy's teat either.
By the same token, I love it when non-disabled assholes presume to speak for the disabled.
Let me lay out a true story for you. I had a buddy who does comic strips for the news papers from time to time. I'll describe the one that got him a lot of flak from idiots like you.
IN the background is a maximum security prison. It's winter and in the foreground you see an empty wheelchair and a furrow in the snow leading away from it and into the woods. Standing by the chair are two prison guards with their dogs with one of the guards saying, "Well whoever it is, he couldn't have got far on foot".
The paper that printed it, the syndicate AND my buddy got all kinds of hate mail over it from a bunch of f*cking losers who assumed they spoke for disabled people. BUT, here's the thing, my buddy is a double amputee. He lost both his legs below the knee as a kid playing on the train tracks. So, according to goofs like you, he's not allowed to use humour to deal with this disability.
But you know what the sad thing is, the whiny bitches missed the real joke. The joke wasn't the obvious punchline. The real humour laid in the question of, just how many wheelchair bound prisoners were there in that prison that the guards would have no idea who he was?
Maybe take the time and worry about what YOU do and say instead of whining about whatever someone else does or says.
