Yes, I have, and I feel bad about it. It was with Jack Carrol. I had something to do that weekend, so when he wanted me to go over, I had to say no. Then, I go home to hear that it was canceled. I picked up the phone and started to dial "860-" Then someone else called and I picked up. I forgot about Jack when he was describing where he wanted to go with me. It was Laser Tag. I got carried away and said yes. I said no because I would loved Laser Tag, and Jack and his autism, he wouldn't want to go. I feel bad for what I did still today. It is almost like the bullying thing. What you say can still haunt you today.
One time that I have made assumptions about someone based on their physical appearanse was when one of my friend's grandparents was at their house. I noticed that she had a breathing tube in her nose and i assumed that she was a smoker at one point. I didn't say anything about it though because I could be wrong.
People are very judgemental. We always say to never judge a book by it's cover, but that is exactally what we do. My best friend had a little brother with Down Syndrome. I dont think he has any Physical Limitations, but one time when we were going to the pool, and he asked if he could swim with us. I said, "Sam, I dont know if that is a good idea. What if he drowns?" I wasn't trying to be offensive, I was caring for him. I guess she took it the wrong way though.
I don't think that is a good to put the words human nature in there because there will be a argument but I think that you kinda have to if you are in a situation if you might take away from the enjoyment of the people around. I do that if it might effect the way that we are doing stuff.
Yes, I think it is natural human nature to make asumptions about people based on ther physical limitations. I think this because many people would think that maybe because somebody who is blind might not be able to hear and be shouting like a wierdo when they dont need to be. Also, they might think that if somebody cant enjoy everything an average person can, it means that they cant enjoy anything.
It is natural to make assuptions at first, but if you say something you should think about it carefully and how that might not be true about that person. I once assumed that a woman who was bald had cancer, but I didn't know if that was true
Belive it or not i have. Once i spread a rumor that my friend called my other friend fat. That was not true because i said it. She looked a little bigger but i did judge her and that was wrong. That is a time when i judged someone on what they looked like.
Yes it is natural people do it subconsciously a lot. I once said to myself that the kid who can't run can't be my friend because they can't do what I can. I regret thinking this.
When i was little i had this friend that sat on the coach a little to much and ate a lot. I thought that he was not all that fun to be around. i thought that he was not so bright and lazy. When i went to his house one time we actually went outside and he ran fast and as good at most games. What i thought was wrong and he was a good friend to me but sadly he moved away.
I don't thinks people should be judged by there pyhisical ability.I think this is really mean because what if that kid was a genius who could later cure you rare disease in the future.Then you would be greatful and not insulting him.Well i do notjudge people because i rarely notice anything bad about others i mosty ty olook at the god side for example there was girl in Poland and she was mentally sick so kids mad in fun of her ,but i saw through that ad became friends with that girla and had her be happy for the summer.This i what i think of people who have judged or if i have judged others.Here is another thing to think about if thewold was ment to be judged no one would agree on anything and there would be chaos.-0skie
Yeah it is natural to make assumptions on someones appearence because you look at there limitations and you see what are the obstacles so that it is easier to avoid the obstacle. But it stinks because in order to avoid the obstacle you need to bring attention to it. I did this when an autistic kid wanted to swim with us but we knew that his mom wouldn't let him. So we said "Oh maybe we should ask your mom if that is okay". He said "No she won't let me because I'm"... Then he went silent.
A lot of humans make assumptions about people based on their physical limitations. It isn't good, but I think everyone has made assumptions about someone based on their physical limitations. When I was little I would make assumptions about people because I didn't know better. For example I would think differently and make assumptions about someone who was in a wheelchair than someone who wasn't.
People do make assumptions and you can't blame them but sometimes it can hurt someone's feelings. One time I saw a boy who was half bald and had a huge scar across his head I felt so bad when I realized he probably had to go through a lot of pain,
Im half and galf here i dont know if your asking this in a good or bad way. Do you mean like in a harsh way or like in a kind way?
For example if someone was in a wheelchair and i was making a kind assumption i was say aww that (vacuum word) that he can do this or that. But I dont think i have every said anything directly to hurt someone with an "issue" because my parents taught me from the start its not their fault andyou cant blame them for something they did.
I think it is natural because you simply don't expect things from people with physical limitations. I remember one time when I was at a party and I met a girl with a broken arm and there were a bunch of her friends (I think they were her friends) doing cartwheels. I didn't expect her to be able to do one but then she did the best one-handed cartwheel I have ever seen done by a non-professional.
I think that it is natural for us to make these assumptions, even if we shouldn't. A time that I made an assumption like this was when I was walking up my street from my bus stop. There was a black van on the side of the road by my house and then this guy got out when I was almost to the door. He looked really suspicious so I was freaked out. But then the guy just asked me if my parents were home (still creepy) and told me that he wanted to gring our giant stumps. It scared me. Waaahhhh :( So that was a time I made an assumption like that.
yes i think it is natural for people to judge somebody at first site. I can think of many times that i have made assumptions about someone when i didn't even know them. I don't want to say any of them because i regret all of them with all of my heart, well most of them.
I think that humans aren't naturally suppose to make assumptions about other's physical appearance, even though people do. A time when I made an assumption about someone based on their physical appearance is when I was watching a show on tv and a person came on and they looked really weird so I thought they would sound really weird and it turned out that they did sound weird but still, it wasn't nice that I made assumptions about someone that I didn't know.
I make fun of people of abilities all the time. This comes out everytime when we do gym and some of us are just playing and the others are just walking around talking to thier friend. Another thing is, I think this counts but, when I play soccer and I get fouled and the ref doesnt call it, the first thing that comes out my mouth is his abilities of calling the correct calls when it's pretty obvious it was a foul.
I think for some people it is natural for them to do it. Others are smarter and think before they speak. I remember once me and my softball team saw our opponents pitcher was 5'10 or taller and the catcher was around 4'3. The pitcher was whipping the ball across the plate. So we began to doubt the catcher's ability to catch, throw, react, make plays, etc. because of her size compared to the pitchers. We
It is human nature to make an assumption about others. I did make an assumption about someone once last year and I feel really bad about it. Last year a special boy asked if I wanted to play a game with him. I said no. I said no because I thought someone was going to make fun of me. But I felt real bad after I said it because I realized that I might of hurt his feelings.
