The portrayal of the person with disabilities
Persons with disabilities either physical and intellectual have negative e language that may a lead to harmful discrimination, actions and negative stereotype which might lead to violence. We see this aspect in Robert Niro. This happens in a scene where he seeks help from his neighbor drag queen Rusty in his singing lesson. Niro refuses to continue with singing which Rusty ends pestering him to continue with the lessons. Niro is angered and abuses Rusty because of self stereotyping himself.
People with disability do not want to be labeled with any degrading term neither do they want to be defined by their particular disabilities or disabilities. Disability is a natural part of human disability or disabilities. disability is a natural part of human existence which can be from birth or develops later in life through accidents . disability is therefore an aspect of human diversity and it is preferable to use first language that places emphasis on the person instead of the disability. For example it s appropriate to say a persons with a disability than to say the disabled.
People with disabilities also do not want to be referred as an object or victim of pity. They are not victims. Therefore people should avoid using terms like suffers from, afflicted with, bound confines, or any other term that implies tragedy. For example one should not use the term wheel chair bound instead, one should use victim of quadriplegia.
The most common characteristic of people with disabilities
The film Flawless 2009, has characters who are in one way or another are disabled. Robert Niro disability is an effect of stroke which has paralyzed his limb partially and has also affected his speech. He feels ashamed of his condition which is one of the emotional condition that people with disability feel, this why though half heartedly he seeks help from his neighbor to help him improve e his speech. He suffers from stress when forced by Rusty to try harder in pronouncing and singing along with the tone of the piano. This annoys Niro and the storms out of the house mumbling back at Rusky. High temperament is one of the aspect that most people with disability experience . this is because they feel that they are being laughed at.
Rusky, Wesssex Snipes and Patrick Swayaw who are the Drag queens have their one disability by not accepting their male gender. They dress and behave like woman an d in fact they imitate all the aspects of women such as fashioning, cat walking, admiring their bodies and speaking like woman. This is a form of mental disability which though they might pretend that all is well outwardly, they are deep down weak. This is seen in Rusky when he realizes that though he has been discriminating Niro, they have something in common. He wishes to have enough money for his medical and surgical therapy to become a woman he is.
