• I guess it depends. Certainly there are cases of intolerance. Certainly there are cases of just differences in circumstances.
  • That can sadly be the case Shadow, people in this class have it harder than most, I believe the chasm between healthy, and the unwell or those with special needs or disability is greater than class or race minority. . However, people being A holes doesn't exclude people with disabilities.
  • Often, it is because they require a significant expenditure of time, patience, and money to accommodate while yielding no tangible benefit to society

      Right, aside from Franklin Roosevelt, Stephen Hawking, Hellen Keller, Frida Kahlo, John Nash, Christopher Reeve, Stevie Wonder, Thomas Edison, Harriet Tubman, Ludwig van Beethoven, Ray Charles, Vladimir Lenin, or the entire Hapsburg Dynasty, who with disabilities ever amounted to anything?! Oh, maybe the thousands more people I didn't mention or the tens of thousands on top of that who have less-than-obvious disabilities, or the hundreds of thousands who made significant contributions to technology, culture, science, and politics without becoming famous. But, aside from those several hundred thousand people, who out there with disabilities made any meaningful contribution to society?!

      Are you seriously upholding the Hapsburgs and Lenin as positive examples of humanity? It's also quite telling that none of those people were born with a severe cognitive defect, barring Nash, never had one, and all were born before the ADA (or the Mexican/British equivalent), so they actually had to do something useful to live.

      Your first point is a matter of opinion, tangential to the overarching point. Your second point is patently untrue, even though it attempts to move the goalposts away from your original claim. You failed to even attempt to address my main point in any way. Want to try again? Anyway, what have you ever accomplished in your life?
  • In a fast-paced, competitive and overpopulated world: people with special needs and disabilities are seen as deadweight.

      It seems that people who are fast paced and competitive don’t think about people being different since it doesn’t occur to them. Those people are ignorant of anyone who is different to them and have expectations of others making some people feel stressed out which is wrong. For somebody to see a person with a disability or special needs as deadweight is being intolerant.

      I do agree, those people who do not consider others are ignorant. In the end if they realize it, one day they will be in a suffering state.
