The "Disability" Act

In reference to my previous post, "Insult to Injury" (August 1), please allow for a clarification:

Overall, again, my main protest is when actors of sound physical and mental health (for the most part) offer performances that they believe are of artistic merit. When, in reality, one can't help but think a part of them is actually "making fun" of those with disabilities - or that they may have done so in the past (off-screen) - and they are now merely employing their demeaning "joke" behavior to earn themselves an Emmy or Oscar nod/award.

This is an abuse of their talent, and an assault on the audience, be they disabled or not - and it just really pisses me off.
