Hello There, Guest! (Login — Register)
Never Google search the word 'Aspergers' ! Seriously!
And this is why....
I've found this video after searching Google for movies about Autism from funny or not .com titled Aspergers High.
I don't know if it's a real promo for a CW late night comedy show or not but I found this offensive.
You guys can disagree with me or not but I hate the stereotype jokes about Aspergers in this video and I bet someone on here would tell me they thought it was funny (laugh at yourself ha ha kind of funny) but it's the fact that the jokes are based on Aspergers stereotypes and people are stupid enough to judge us by stereotypes! This is whats pissing me off!
I'm curios of what would happen if I did a Google war on the word Autism and Asperger's and compared the good information against the stereotypical information or hatefulness against Autism and asperger's ?
For those who don't know what a Google war is here's one example:
1. Google search your name.
2. Google search a friends name or a famous person or celebrity.
3. Record the number of search results for your name and friend/famous person/celebrity's and compare the results to see who got the most. Who ever got the most results win...
So yeah... I've got to stop doing Google searches for Autism or Aspergers cause it's only making me hate people more and more...
Actually, I think this thread (and video) will give you guys a pretty good idea of how were a joke to young people and how I swear their getting stupider by the days....
I mean the majority of young people of course, the typical ones without a sense of judgment or humanity.
But what can AFF do about ? We can start by not sinking to their level of making stereotypical jokes about them.
I don't see why we can't be angered by them but I'd rather not sink to their levels....
So guys.... Welcome to Stereotypical-ville and The-a**-of-all-jokes-about-a**ess-and-burgers.... *sigh*
