Ignorance and Society
To each person words can have different meanings depending on how much they know about it and the context it is used in. For example, in the media I see commercials about the prejudice word “retard” or known as the “r” word. When being pointed out I know that as a person I would like to be pointed out like one. A way not to do so would be pointing out my disability or trying to define me as a person in that way.I am not that “handicapped person” or “disabled guy”, I am Mason. Or if you don’t know my name I am also a man. For me having a disability has some insecurities. It doesn’t help to have complete strangers or anyone else describing us in that matter.
