I’m so glad I was born in the late fifties and grew up in the early sixties and seventies. I was very fortunate to have a family and friends who didn’t see my disability as something that gave me some form of entitlement.
I survived growing up making fun of my disability. I’m fairly certain that if I was growing up today the type of comments I made back then would be completely unacceptable today.
Someone would be offended and would tell me that I shouldn’t talk that way about myself.
I read Facebook posts today where someone got very offended because the other person was using sarcasm that offended their sensibilities.
There doesn’t seem to be any kind of comment that’s intended as a joke by the person posting, where someone from our liberal politically correct culture doesn’t get offended.
