Thank you, greaves, for creating this argument.

Now, I'm not totally sure what you're trying to say here... but, ah, I'm going to assuming you are saying people who have disabilities do NOT generate the "meanness" of the public. Since you are on the con side, and I can't understand the title, I'll go with that. Hopefully I'm right!

When you say "rudeness", you are implying people are cruel to people with disabilities. This is not so. Although there are people who treat ones with disabilities differently, the general public doesn't spit on quadriplegics' shoes. NOw, there are outliers -- people who are incredibly mean. You seem to be focusing on these few outliers and thus deduce everyone is like these people.

There are multiple societies founded through private charities to protect thee people and give them rights. If you say that this is rudeness, you are mistaken. The "General Public" (taxpayers!) give money to these foundations through government grants. This is not rudeness.

Anyways, my point is: There are rude people who are cruel to disabilities, but the general public isn't cruel to these people.

CON was incomprehensible, to say the least. All points to PRO.

The Pro-Con sides seem to be switched. He is arguing FOR his title, but he took the con side -- which I am arguing for. Fun.
