Thread Name: dyslexia jokes offensive?
Subject: RE: dyslexia jokes offensive?
One in ten of us has some form of dyslexia. Way fewer of us are natural blondes. If we can have blonde jokes we can have lysdexic jokes. It is not not making fun of the handicapped since dyslexia can produce profound advantages in conceptual thinking, engineering and entrepenurial pursuits. Lysdexia is not dain bramage, nor is it manifested by reversing letters in a sentence.
As a blonde I have had people enjoy telling me blonde jokes way more than they needed.
