Don't you think it's pretty hypocritical that they were reviewing disabilities they dont even have? They are doing this while basically telling us that we don't understand. What the hell do they know about having Down syndrome or being a little person?

The comments they made about "Inspiration Porn" meant a lot to me. As a victim of abuse as well as someone who has dealt with invisible disabilities for most of my life, I know what it is like to be used as a source of feel-good fodder for the average person. There is something weirdly dehumanizing about people using other's hardships as a way to pat themselves on the back, and it hijacks the complexity and meaning of our stories. Good disability representation should be an inspiration to disabled people, not inspiration porn or comedic relief for the non-disabled.

BTW I don't think the misunderstanding of Leo's character in what's eating Gilbert grape shows a lack of empathy or understanding on behalf of the main characters but on behalf of the country town the characters live in. Artie seems sorta autistic with some type of mental diminishment. He looks and sounds like people I have seen in real life. No one mentioned the disabled, obese mother, who is negligent of her kids but she also has a problem and is MORE the subject of "how crappy for the rest of the family." I see it more that the family NEVER felt truly ashamed of each other and they had solidarity no matter what despite their disabilities, but it also shows the psychological affects on the caretakers.. Gilbert, and his sister, who themselves are left by their father and are themselves thrust into the "mom and dad" roles for their cognitively/behaviorally challenged brother and physically handicapped mother.

Daniel Day Lewis plays Christy Brown with cerebral palsy in working class Ireland in the 1930s. Being uneducated about his disability, the family assumes he is not mentally capable, but as the movie shows, they eventually are taught by Christy that this is not the case.

Wonder was, in all honesty, a terrible movie. The book was so much better. In the book the movies based off of, it says to imagine auggie as different as you’d like, and to give a mental image as the story takes place. This movie ruined the entire idea of that and designed the movie characters all wrong. But besides that, this video was great.

Don't agree with their assessment of Arnie Grape. Leonardo DiCaprio did an amazing job with the character. And also, they never specify what disability Arnie has, so how do they know what his expected life span should be? None of these people are qualified to speak on mental disabilities. I don't think they even watched the movie and understood the plot. SMH. Next time Buzzfeed, include medical professionals and people with mental disabilities to speak on the subject.

If I was disabled I wouldn't want to get a part just because I was disabled. I'd hope to get the part because I was good enough. My friend who is physically disabled agrees. She's doesn't make her disability the only thing that makes her her and doesn't get offended by actors playing disabled characters.

I've thought it would be really good for movies if casting would be blind. Like... have the bones, have the necessary bits of the story and then cast blind from there. If the story takes place in modern-day America and is about coworkers that hate each other but end up falling in love - it doesn't matter the ethnicity, gender, or disabilities. Disabled fat black man falls in love with a standard Hollywood white guy and the story doesn't have to be about being gay, having disability, or comedy because someone is overweight in it - it can still be exactly the same as any silly feel good hot white guy hot white girl fall in love romance. I would love to see shows portrayed like that. And if it does matter cast accordingly as well (don't cast white people in place of every other ethnicity Hollywood COUGH COUGH). There will be a lot of stories about hot white people, but how much more interesting would it be to have an appropriate diversity of people cast as long as the story is being respected. Movies would be so much better

Yeah I agree with what they were saying about Wonder. I have a sister with SMA and we are so close that it's almost like we are the same person. I know what she's thinking and feeling in a certain situation, so I know that she is uncomfortable when she's being given attention because of her disability. So when we watched that movie, I kinda got uncomfortable when he got that award because I kinda felt like they were giving it to him because they felt bad for him. People give my sister gifts all the time and I can feel how uncomfortable she is because she knows why they are giving it to her. She wants to be seen as a person, not a person with a disability. She wants people to remember her because of her personality, not the huge wheelchair she's sitting in. I feel all kinds of secondhand embarassment when people do things for her because they feel bad for her.

I dont get why people have a problem with an able-bodied actor playing a disabled one. I mean, its called acting. There, its hard enough to find an actor who can nail the part and if you will be looking only at disabled actor your choice will be very limited. Also with Artie, he was there for five seasons and he literally had this one episode when he had a short-lived issue about his diasbality, the whole story made sense for the character, that was normally super happy and ok. People should stop being so negative about all this :).

I have a crush on Peter Dinklage too 😊 Also I would have been interested in hearing their opinion on AHS season 4. The characters were very interesting & had lots of different storylines, but at the same time, it was set in a 1950s circus freakshow. So that would've been a really interesting one for them to discuss imo.

Tracy Beaker returns / the dumping ground Frank was awesome. The only time I remember his cerebral palsy being a big topic was when his best friend was complaining about how hard his life was and Frank was like "I have to talk REALLY slowly and people still struggle to understand me. You think you're the only one with problems?" But that's a CBBC program in the UK so of course they haven't seen it. Lola was good too in the original Tracy Beaker. Also there's Sasha in the Dumping Ground who has dwarfism and refers to others as "shortie" which I love (she's played by Annabelle Davis, Warwick Davis's daughter). However I don't have any major disabilities so I wouldn't know. However I know that watching the Tracy Beaker programs growing up made me see that people with disabilies are just people like you and me. Nobody is "normal", there is statistically not a normal person so having a disability shouldn't be a problem.

Their feelings are valid about the Artie episode, because it is their own feelings. So many comments, "well you should see it.." Guys, relax. Their feelings are valid. Maybe some day they'll look back on it and think different, or maybe they did finish the episode and not dislike it as a whole, and that's fine. Let people feel things, damn.

I disagree that only people with disabilities should be portraying people with disabilities. Actors aren't actually anyone that they play - they are playing a role, pretending. No one would be pissed off that a firefighter wasn't played by a real firefighter. Pretending is the whole point of acting, and the only stipulation is whether or not they acted well. Also, films and television are a form of art. Art isn't supposed to be politically correct, or 'validating', or 'inclusive'... it's not supposed to be anything except an expression of the artists creative vision. The idea that art should be policed, is ridiculous.

This is great and enlightening and reveals popular stereotypes. Can you do mental health next? Oh boy oh boy oh boy. There is a tremendous need. It's all this "a memoir of madness" stuff. And people look at movies with mentally ill people in them and call it a "heartwarming struggle towards the light". At the same time, "whack job" is one of the favorite expressions in our culture."Oh come on. He's just a whack job" (total dismissal).

In casting actor with disability for Artie's role. A lot of comments go into how a disabled actor can't do what an able-bodied actor can. What about the other way around. All the things an abled body can't do while a wheelchair user can! Of course the team can choose who they want and how they want it, it's their show. Just thinking it may give a different level of artistic possibilities. After all, the show is about celebrating variety of talents right!?

I don't get why they didn't like What's Eating Gilbert Grape. Leo did an amazing job. I know kids like that, so he didn't do a poor job. It was realistic. It is also a movie about a family's struggle, and I don't see anything wrong with that. Lots of families struggle for different reasons. Why should we hide that some families with kids who are disabled struggle? It is the truth. Much better to get it out in the open then pretend it doesn't happen.

Look. Just because you are disabled, doesn’t mean you can be the police on “properly portrayed disabled people.” It’s sad, that you have to go through what you go through, but please, don’t get mad at directors and actors for trying. It’s like saying just because I’m white I can criticize the movies with white females and say “well this isn’t how I live, I’m offended by the character.” That isn’t right.

I can see why people would find Leonardo DiCaprio's acting offensive but I don't agree that the movie is supposed to make the audience feel sorry for the family because of Arnie's disability. The story is about Gilbert and his struggle to take care of his family while trying to live his own life. The relationship between Arnie and Gilbert is a big part of the story but it isn't all there is to the movie. Also, you can't forget that the Arnie wasn't the only character in the movie with a disability. The mother is morbidly obese and is a shut in.

Disability is such a broad spectrum that even if they were to add people with cognitive disabilities to the panel, people would still complain. I think the point of this is to say that as a whole, the disabled community is represented poorly in society.
