I was talking with someone who suggested this cartoon idea. I’m not an artist, but taking a little inspiration from OneFTE, I went ahead and "drew" this.
The cartoon shows two people talking together. The conversation goes like this:
Person 1: Amputees are an ugly sight. They should stay at home.
Person 2: There go Sarah Bernhart and Admiral Lord Nelson.
Person 1: People in wheelchairs should live in nursing homes.
Person 2: There go Stephen Hawking and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Person 1: The blind should live in their own institutions.
Person 2: There go Stevie Wonder and Helen Keller.
Person 1: The deaf should not be mixing with us.
Person 2: There goes Beethoven. Oh! And Helen Keller again.
Person 1: The mentally ill would be better off in psychiatric hospitals.
Person 2: There go Robin Williams, Buzz Aldrin and Winston Churchill
Person 1: Suddenly, I feel very lonely…
Update: A response from OneFTE
I shared this comic with Stuart from OneFTE.com and he came back with one of his own. He gave me permission to post it here.
Two people talking. One is a barista making a coffee for the other.
Person 1: They should send all people with disabilities somewhere so we don’t have to cater for their needs wherever we go.
Person 2: When they add ignorance to that list, who’s going to make my coffee?
There is a caption reading: “IGNORANCE. There is no greater disability”
