Philosophy Wire: Paralympians & "free" talking - The key to Respect

Earlier this year, the British Paralympic Association (BPA) put out a Paralympics language guide and media organisations covering the Games have had meetings and have drafted documents about it to make sure they get it right when reporting [source: BBC News]. For example words like "he suffers from", "victim of", "normal" or "abnormal" are not allowed to be used.


I thought that the KEY to make those people comfortable and show that you treat them as equal, was exactly the OPPOSITE: NOT to think rules about what you say to them!
