I have a feeling this might upset people and possibly not even get posted, but it just kills me inside to see so many English majors make fun of people with learning disabilities on a daily basis. I know that’s probably not what most people intend, but it’s what most people do. Please, next time you feel tempted to say something witty about people who have trouble writing and reading correctly, take a moment to think - not about how unfair it is to try to make people feel stupid for being sick, but about how you’d feel if you weren’t be able to read your beloved books because of dyslexia. People who already have to deal with that don’t deserve to be mocked.
Of course we’ll post this! Just because you love grammar, doesn’t give you the right to openly mock others for it, especially if they have a condition that makes such things difficult for them.
LOVE EVERYBODY, ARMADILLOS! <3 <3
