I think it's still some good food for thought.............
15 year old girl holds hands with her 1 year old son. People call her a slut. No one knows she was raped at 13.
People call a girl fat. No one knows she has a serious disease which causes her to be over weight.
People call an old man ugly. No one knows he had a serious injury to his face while fighting for our country in the war.
Re-post this if you are against bullying and stereotyping. 95% of you wont.
Related to the above, I am sure there are lots more we can come up with too. I work with the brain injured, and TBI is called the unseen disability, because you can't usually tell by just looking at a person that there is an issue. Many of my clients are treated poorly though because of their cognitive impairments when interacting with the general public.
Even family and helping providers get frustrated with them for things they can no longer help because of their brain disability.
What is a stereotype that you can think of that has impacted you or a client negatively?
Or how have you or a client been affected by a bullying situation?
