I have a question for you guys. When you are out somewhere (anywhere, really), and you see someone with special needs (retarded), a midget, someone with a missing limb, or someone really fat, maybe some one of a different race...do you stare at them? Do you turn your head? Or do you look at them just like you look at anyone else? Do you act like they aren't even there and that you didn't see them? Is there only one of those kind of people that you do that to any not any one else? Do you feel uncomfortable? Do you feel like you want to look at them like their normal, but think you will offend them by looking at them? This is a question I am asking because last night I went to the carnival, and there was a midget there and I smiled at her, and my friend asked me why I am looking at her. I said that I look at everybody, and if I catch someones eye I am not just gonna turn away. Midget or not. He saw my point and felt bad. But this question is sitting with me now. I want to know what you guys do. Be honest please. I will be honest that I do turn my head when I see 'retarded' people. It makes me somewhat uncomfortable for some reason. I feel bad for turning my head, but that's what I always do. -I may sound hypocritical about saying when I catch someones eye I smile, but usually I do. This is the case I don't..... Let's talk.
