The Pathological Behavior and Attitudes of Handicapped People

This post was inspired by a few recent incidents involving my interactions with handicapped people, and I am sure that many of you had similar experiences. Have you noticed that-

Handicapped people, in western countries, demand special treatment and consideration yet want other to show deference to them and overlook the fact that they are usually incredibly shitty people?

First, let me be very clear about a few things. I do not blame handicapped people for their misfortunes, even if they were responsible for their disability. I also do not have problems with the use of public funds to make their life easier and more ‘normal’. Nor am I implying that handicapped people should continuously thank able-bodied people for their kindness, consideration and charity.

But is it too much to expect handicapped people to behave like normal people? Why do most handicapped people behave as if their handicap makes them morally superior, beyond criticism and almost holy? Why do they act as if being handicapped is a license to demand that others treat them with reverence, ignore their shitty attitudes, watch what they say around them and generally treat them as the center of the universe?

I cannot help comparing the general attitude and mindset of handicapped people to feminists. It is hard to ignore that both groups demand special treatment because of significant personal deficiencies, which they may (or may not) be responsible for. The similarity between the socio-legal paths chosen by both groups is too high to be merely coincidental. They both started by appealing to the general populations sense of pity, decency and fairness. However once they achieved most of their primary goals, they started to down the path of pushing their agenda through punitive legislation. While such rules and regulations were initially labelled as anti-discriminatory legislation, they quickly grew and morphed into an entire ecosystem devoted to promoting that group. Society went along with a legislative approach because it did help create more well-paid jobs.

The next step involved elevating the handicapped and women over other members of the society. It started with promoting a few as martyrs and courageous people, but rapidly degenerates into a scam where anyone with a disability or a cunt automatically becomes a courageous martyr struggling against the cruel world- even if that was untrue. Infact, the mere suggestion that all disabled people and women are not deserving superheros immediately started marking that person for punitive socio-legal attention. The commercial ecosystem surrounding these groups also became bigger to the extent that the ‘disadvantaged ‘ were promoted over other members of that society.

Most members of these so-called victimized and oppressed group now started seeing themselves as morally superior and deserving martyrs who are incapable of being anything less than a saint. They start demanding privileges beyond those enjoyed by other members of that society. They took offense to every perceived slight and insult. Even the most basic interactions with such people became riddled with pitfalls and faux pas for the unwary person. They now start perceiving themselves as the victims of relentless persecution, discrimination and abuse- regardless of evidence to the contrary.

A person who tries to suggest that these groups are being unreasonable, greedy, litigious and supremacist now faces the risk of being labelled and persecuted as a public enemy, as opposed to the previous charge of simple heresy. In the meanwhile, both groups continue to push an ever-increasing amounts of crap on the rest of society.

    It seems that most people are mentally handicapped, but they still think that their way is the best and only way and they either try to force others or try to use guilt trips, but it’s important for normal people to not give in to those crazy people.

    Advocatus: This is exactly how it feels to be a “normal” white male, not just in relationship to feminists and the handicapped, but in relation to every conceivable minority group in society. It is downright shameful to be competent and unneedy. Where I live (the Netherlands) they have succeeded in turning all the illiterate immigrants (Maroccan and Turk) into indignant wards of state, because there is a whole government funded industry of people who see it as their heroic calling to fight for these people against the disadvantages and discrimination they would otherwise face, and need to be put at the top of the list for public housing and all kinds of help. Trust me, they would have been better of fending for themselves, learning the language to get ahead, and building on their own strengths instead of being nurtured into a servility/revolt dynamic. Favouritism from the public sector has muddied relationships instead of helping them.

    So what really is the problem? I remember years ago being astonished as 11/12 year old boys tried to grab my umbrella as I cycled past them, and this was in a fairly desolate area. I could easily have dismounted and rammed their heads together and left them contused on the sidewalk. When I was a kid, we used to make jokes about the “workies” (guys working on public works for the municipality), but we never actually fucked with them. I can’t say we were scared of them, but we had healthy idea about not provoking men bigger and stronger than yourself. And that is what is so unnatural about the behaviour of those little kids: Would you fuck with a bear in the woods? Do squirrels take on stags? Do mice disrespect tigers?

    I am not saying that everything should be based on power and violence. But even with kids playing on the street, as an adult you’re generally best off leaving everyone to fend for themselves. Little kids just have to adapt to the fact that they’re not the boss and are a lot better off being circumspect than challenging and provoking others who they cannot take on. Occasionally you need to interfere with little pscyho’s, but interfering too much will prevent the social dynamics from reaching a natural balance. Little girls learn soon enough that flattery, lies, and scolding will get them further than their fists. The problem of present-day modern culture is that everybody has been indoctrinated to think that there is no natural order — everything is an arrangement or a personal decision which can be molded and re-arranged at will. The result is akin to what would happen in a wolf pack if well-meaning busy-bodies stepped in all the time to change every wolf’s role: the pack would no longer function and probably starve to death without extra feeding by the busy bodies. And think of what would happen if the weaker members suddenly lost their support from the busy bodies!

      Don’t you have “model minorities” like in the US?
      You know, people to point at so that you can say “Look at those people(the non-refugees who we carefully screened to be the top 10% of their population leaving their country and thus need no handouts)! They are so hardworking, quiet and law-abiding. And successful!”
      P.S. Females get more scholarships than males – that’s pretty much true across all ethnicities.
      When was the last time you saw a “male empowerment centre” on campus?

    “Handicapped people, in western countries, demand special treatment and consideration yet want other to show deference to them and overlook the fact that they are usually incredibly shitty people?”

    As someone who worked with handicapped people for years this could not be further from the truth. Handicapped people just want to be seen like most people and tend to be some of the nicest, hardest working people. Some work even harder than non handicapped people in hopes that people will simply respect them. Certainly you have some bad apples butttt I mean come on that’s kind of a stretch… How many handicapped people do you know?

    I guess the job pays well.

      Actually, it didn’t, and you didn’t answer my question.

    Disabled people should not be allowed to amusement parks! I hate people who are missing arms and legs. Disabled people should not be allowed in gay bars either!

    Yep. Some women – feminists, rather – try to equate themselves to handicapped people. Therefore, they use their gender as a handicap and the rest of the world should bow down to them. “She’s a woman. He is autistic. GIVE THEM A FREE PASS!” It’s just as idiotic as when the homosexuals compare their being discriminated against to the black slave trade. (SMH)

    I became disabled at about 2-years-old. All of my friends and all but one of my partners have/are non-disabled. I attended, university, pay my taxes and contribute to society. Most disabled people want the same things as non-disabled persons (a well paying job, friends and, basically to enjoy life). They do not, with a few exceptions believe that the world owes them a living. Many disabled people want to work but through prejudice find it difficult or impossible to obtain employment. Obviously it is better to have the disabled working, paying taxes etc than vegetating on state support.

    I am just pointing out that it is possible to find assholes, morons and nutcases in every single group and category of people.
