Shorter English Parents - We Want Our Children to Be As Bigoted Towards the Physically Challenged As We Are!
Dear parents in England,
Instead of trying to pass on your own prejudices towards and fears of people with physical differences, why don't you use Ms. Burnell's television show as one more way to help your children learn that people are different, but that doesn't make some better than others. In a world where people still mock individuals with special needs to reinforce unfair stereotypes and create fear, rather than educate and unite, the BBC's hiring of Ms. Burnell is admirable.
Get over yourselves and let your children grow up to be more decent, respectful, and understanding people than you are.
