Every time a new movie (or tv show) comes out featuring a person with a disability and said disability is made the focus of that story I just roll my eyes because I know it's going to be bad. I don't have any physical or mental disability and I can't pretend to know what living with one is like, but I find most portrayals of such situations deeply insulting for those who actually live through them. Especially if you cast someone who is not disabled. They should have shown Speechless' JJ as another example of a character with a disability that is portrayed in a frank but uplifting way without becoming condescending. JJ is as awesome a character as Tyrion, just younger and living in the real world with a family who loves him.

As a disabled person, thank you so much for this. People always forget or ignore us. If we're having a bad day, we're pitied and told "I could never be disabled like you". If we're having a good day, we're inspiration porn and ablebodied people tell us how lovely it is to see us at the supermarket or how proud they are of us for...something? I just want to see people like me and I want other people to see young disabled people in media so they stop coming up to me and asking me what's wrong or talking to whoever I'm with instead to me (I'm not deaf, I just don't walk good!!!). Growing up, I never had any kind of representation of disabled people, beyond a few token examples, almost all of whom were in wheelchairs. And then as I became disabled myself, I had to deal with all of these thoughts and ideas in my head about disability because all the media showed me were people in wheelchairs (I use a walking stick), people with mental disabled, people who were deaf or blind, people who didn't dress fashionably and needed constant care. And there were basically no role models for me to look up to. There still basically no famous people who use a walking stick that aren't elderly. I just want to see myself. I want to go to the cinema and see someone like me, played by someone like me. I want there to be a role model for younger people who are growing up disabled. I want someone who is successful AND disabled, not "in spite of". So thank you for amplifying the voice of the disabled community. It would be cool to see more disabled content from Buzzfeed. It might even make me subscribe!

I dream about flying like Superman. Just because I wake up and can't fly doesn't mean I'm disabled. I treat people like people. Yes... If you are attached to some kind of Borg-looking device, I may stare a little to figure out how it works because I think it's cool... Warning... I'll probably ask questions and try to convince you to let me try it out.

I loved how in a quiet place the daughters disability turns into the only way to fight the monsters and without that they wouldn’t have had a chance. Also the actress is actually deaf and very happy to support her community through this film.

Too bad that almost all their reactions are if characters with disability aren't played by actors w disability then it sucks. They should've review it based on the actors performance, and how the characters w disability is portrayed on screen not based on if the actors who played the role have disability in real life or not.

I’m autistic and I get that people want actual autistics to play these characters but I’ve done background acting in commercials for fun and the lights are BRIGHT AF and it can be noisy and chaotic and doing the same scene 40-60+ times. Now imagine that’s a TV series or a movie. The same thing almost every day for hours and hours and hours. Imagine the sensory overloads and meltdowns.

George R. R. Martin included that Tyrion had been trained to perform. He later regretted that, but in the books it was too late and he ended up using it for the plot. Peter Dinkledge refused to include that aspect of the character though. I respect him even more for it.

The actor from Breaking Bad has Cerebral Palsy, but not as severe as the character. He worked with experts to exaggerate his own real symptoms in an accurate way. He did an amazing job, not just at portraying the disability, but at every aspect of his job.

It seems like it’s hard for the people on the video to accept the fact that most able people, like it or not, do feel sorry for a lot of people with severe disabilities and the families who also live with it. Not everything can be about empowerment, equality, rainbows and sunshine. The Artie character is a great example of this.

If you disliked wonder as a movie, you'd probably like it more as a book, because being in pov of auggie makes it 10x better. For example, in the scene where auggie gets the metal in the book he does mention that this doesn't even really mean much to him, as he sees it as an award for just being him, which mirrors the sentiment in this video.
