Thread Name: songs about disabilities
Subject: RE: songs about disabilities
Capri, about "disabled" versus "handicapped", I think it has to do with what the person wants to refer to themselves as. I don't prefer one term over the other, but if someone else wants to call themselves one or the other it's their choice. However if someone with no physical handicaps called someone with them "disabled" or handicapped" it could be seen as offensive. There're both words which can be offensive or non-offensive, depending on who uses them. BTW, I was born in 1993 and attend a mainstream high school.
