The " Chew Weekly " unit seeks to be thin but profound, taking a weight that allows you to take it easy; a topic that allows you to chew your meal less time and chew it up!
Have you ever thought about the subtext of "underestimating their ability" and "even if they can, normal people can" when we recognize people who are physically and mentally handicapped and make sure they break through the physical barrier to complete creation and study? Let's take a look at what Stella Young says! (Put aside stereotypes and make all equal: Why do you suppose the handicapped have no lust?) To discuss the true story of the "Angel of the Hand"
"We are now going to give a special award to a student who is physically handicapped and who is still trying to complete a bachelor's degree." "This is what really happened at my graduation ceremony," he said.
Yes, in real life we often offer special awards like "Special Achievement Award", "Hard Work Award" to the mentally handicapped, affirming their efforts in life. But are we sure it's their achievement or their handicap?
Stella Young, commonly known as the " Glass doll ", she raised the question: "In fact, we have not done anything, what do we have to do with these awards?" 」

"When I'm on the road, a lot of people come and tell me how brave and inspiring I am because I can get up in the morning and remember my name." 」
This is a universal social phenomenon: we often equate the story of the physically and mentally handicapped with the "inspiring". This kind of false cognition also spreads through the network media to each corner. It's not hard to find that the picture behind a lot of inspirational quotes is that a little girl with no hands might still be biting her brush on a piece of paper, or a man running a marathon with a prosthetic limb on his feet.

In these "inspirational photos" behind, actually represents two kinds of meaning: "Disability is not good" and "when you find someone's life is worse than you, you feel that the day is not so sad." Stella this phenomenon as "incentive pornography": because it is the same as pornography, through physical and mental disorders to the benefit of people with disabilities. (Recommended to you: let the girl go!) The female body on the Liberation Court )
"The days are really not easy for us, and we have to overcome a lot of difficulties," he said. But unlike what you might imagine, it is not the difficulty of overcoming physical obstacles, but how to face the vision of society. 」
In fact, physically and mentally handicapped persons are no different from normal people. Physical handicaps are not the most difficult for them, as they are learning how to play and use the body's greatest possibilities, just as they do with people who are not physically and mentally handicapped. But society tends to underestimate them because of their physical handicaps, and to regard "disability" as a special achievement. (Another kind of discrimination: who is holding a woman's body?) The Goddess and the slut under the patriarchal eye
Perhaps you might wonder, or even refute, "is it wrong to think of people with disabilities as inspirational objects?" Is it that people who are handicapped are not inspired by anyone? 」
People with physical and mental disorders, of course, have been inspired to appreciate others, but also learn from each other. But not because you feel more fortunate than to be motivated, but because you really feel that the other side of the idea is really great, not because the other side to overcome physical disadvantage and moved, but to see the special vision against society and materialized situation and feel great.
It's not your fault, it's because society keeps giving us the wrong myths about people who are physically and mentally handicapped. So from now on, we can remove the labels of physical and mental disorders, put them on the same scale as people with disabilities, and appreciate their real "achievements" rather than physical barriers.
The reason that makes you stand out is not the disability, but the challenge to the established perception of "disability" and the questioning of it.
Hopefully in the future, we can all live in a society that will not classify disability as a special one. Hopefully in the future, we are inspired by someone because of what he does, not because he is missing a hand or a foot.
