Should disabled people be treated the same as able-bodied people?

  • Yes yes yes

    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Which was enacted in 1990, Is a landmark civil rights law. It has been called the “Bill of Rights” for persons with disabilities, Who make up approximately 20 percent of the U. S. Population. Prior to its enactment, A patchwork of federal, State, And local laws attempted to eliminate disability discrimination. That approach proved ineffective. The act prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in employment, Public accommodations, Transportation, And telecommunications. It extends protection to any person with a physical or mental impairment that “substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such individual. ” The act was amended in 2008 to overturn two Supreme Court decisions that limited the scope of this definition.

  • They should be 'treated' the same

    Every body should be treated the same as we are all human. But that doesn't mean that we shouldn't help people both impaired or not in day to day life. Also I don't like the term able bodied as often you wouldn't know whether they had an impairment or not so how can you make this judgment. Instead we should be mindful of everybody. Some peoples requirements are so complex that some times there may have to be different options and actions in place but that does not mean we are treating them the same or valuing them any differently

  • Idk hi hi

    Tom Cruise graduated high school with the label of a "functional illiterate". Cruise was showing signs of a learning disability as young as elementary school. He felt like school work was much harder for him than it was for his peers. Although he loved learning, Cruise struggled so much that he physically became exhausted and overwhelmed. He was diagnosed to having dyslexia. Cruse had to leave his normal classes to to go remedial reading sessions.

  • In Their Shoes

    Think about it. How would you feel if everyone you met was a negative magnet and you were the only positive: the other magnets would move away from you. I have plenty of friends who I didn't even know had a disability. They were just extremely kind and happy people.

  • Stop the hate

    People with disabilities are no different from us. Just because a part of their body isn't working, doesn't mean that we have to be rude to them. A goof book to read id Wheels by Delwyne Stephens. He gives you a great insight of a teenager with the lose of his legs and how he feels and acts. Stop the hate guys. Its not okay. How would you feel is someone was doing it to you?

  • Yes it is unfair to them

    Some kids with disabilities want to be treated normally like my sister she goes to a normal school with normal friends so keep being fair it is nice to treat them like that and some kids make fun of them and some kids don't i know a lot of people with disabilities

  • We are all the same

    No matter what gender disability or disease how rich or how poor we all are the same people under God our fathers eyes he created us to treat each other fairly but now we have changed if you voted no i think you should rethink that because how would you feel if i treated you unfairly because you are disabled what would you do if one of your kids was born disabled or was labeled disabled during the pregnancy would you abort and commit a murder well would you just have a think about it.

  • Yes, they should be.

    Although they have a disability, that shouldn't change the fact that they should be treated equally as kids that don't have any. Of course, educationally, they should learn in a way that simplifies what they're being taught in order to be able to understand/comprehend it.

    I am against having them being pampered, as in for an example, having their time for entertainment varied (Entertainment having nothing to do with learning), using their mental handicap for an excuse. It's not right at all.

    That's about all I have to say.

  • Yes they should be treated equally

    No matter what a person's condition is they should be treated like a human being because we are all human and should have the same rights as others . I also believe that all schools should cater for disabled children so that they will have the same experiences as able students

  • They should because

    I'm sick of seeing special needs people getting away with assault, destruction of public property, destruction of private property and in some cases murder. Not to mention I sit down to eat a nice meal and there's one of these retards screaming his head off a few tables over. Also in high school I accidently touched one of these fuckers and they went ape shit on me so obviously I fought back and I was the one who got suspended. Pretty fucking biased.

  • Please stop playing pretend.

    These people are called disabled for a reason, so pretending they are the same gets us nowhere. The truth is, not everyone is equal. If you want to pretend they are "normal", then you should treat them normal fully. For example, a mentally retarded child should receive the same resources and education as an advanced student. You can't have it both ways, either treat the different or treat the same, but stop trying to spare peoples feelings and make them feel included.

  • Stop The Bull Shit

    Sure, i agree that we sould be nice an consierate, but when a disabled being decides to use their disability as tool for easy life, thats too far. For example, in 6 th grade we had a disabled kid in our class, now, he was for some reason allowed to bring a laptop to school, now thats fine, but when the spelling test comes around, THE FUCKER USES SPELLCHECK, like seriosly, he got so many god dam stickers. Any way, see what i mean, this kid used his disability as a wepon to get himself stickers and let no one else get them,
