First I would like to say thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes yesterday. The celebration continues meeting up with my family for dinner tonight.
As I type this, I am finishing getting ready to go out for dinner and then I will be home into to watch TLC summer. That is one thing I enjoy the eclectic programming found on TLC summer’s line-up. The assortment of sometimes unique shows expands my mind and even at times my sense of social acceptance.
What do you think of how disability is portrayed on television? One thing I have noticed about the TLC line up is they have various shows about people with disabilities. The one that comes to mind is The Little Couple. This show does not make any thing seem unusual it is just good family fun. In case you have never seen it the show follows the couple, Doctor Jennifer Arnold and her husband Bill Klein both of whom are little people. The thing I love about the show is that they don’t dwell on their limitations; both are extremely matter of fact about their life.
It is refreshing; my personal perception is that the media tends to make things on disability a pity party. What happened to a good old human interest that was factual? I believe that the media has gotten better in recent years, media have made drastic improvements, TLC is one of many shining examples of this.
Those of you that have read this and have read my old post about Artie from Glee you will realize that I think in terms of dramatizations there needs to be some work but I can’t ignore the fact that massive positive strides have been made.
