I'm in Canada, but that is how we are raised (or are SUPPOSED to be) as well. Its terrible. Nobody has an open mind anymore. If someone isn't athletic, or good-looking, or healthy, well then, they must have SOMETHING wrong with them. -_-"
It doesn't help that I'm a larger girl, from medications I need to take to LIVE. People stare at me all the time. Especially when I'm in the stupid wheelchair. Sheesh. Get some manners people! God forbid you getting sick, or getting in an accident , and being in a similar position that I'm in.
