Ooh - fun...

This is mainly in Disney, but:

When the main character treats their siblings and friends like dirt and always gets away with it. Like, the message is, "Oh, hey, you can be a *bad word, lol* to everyone but as long as you apologize for two minutes at the end of the episode, it's good and everyone loves you!"

Default Ooh, this'll be interesting...

The cliches I hate......I'm not sure this counts as a cliche, but I don't like how some people treat people with certain disabilities; if a dwarf or a person with down syndrome walks by, they either avert their eyes, stare, or just completely ignore them.

Haha! This isn't a cliche, but I find it funny that make every new actor on Disney a singer, and then they dissapear (anyone remember Michael Mitchell from Hannah Montana) after their show goes downhill.

There's this guy in my library, and he has learning disabilities, and he also can't speak properly. Let's call him U.

My friend and I went in the library, when we saw a guy from out class who we knew. He had two bags with full coke, and pepsi drinks. Let's just call him J.

U came into the library, and he was thirsty and he had no money, and he wanted on of J's drinks.

However, J was too FREAKING RUDE and some words I don't to say.

That is what annoys me the most. Just because U was different, J didn't want to give him a drink.

So I just gave him my 1 dollar/ 1 pound.

There's a girl with dwarfism in my school, where you have to pass an exam to get in. So, obviously, she's extremely intelligent. But some ignorant people went up to her on her first day and asked her why she wasn't in a special school. It irratates me that people think a physical disability guarantees learning difficulties. That's utter rubbish!

While I was playing in the playground with Grace and a bunch of people yesterday, an Indian wandered by and said he wanted to join our game. They didn't want to add him just because he's an Indian! Discrimination!
But I persuaded them though I slightly regretted it because he turned out to a bit weird And freaky.

I hate the fact Disney princesses all look the same, virtually. There is no difference in their attitude.

True, true. So blonde with long flowing hair to their back; it's just so boring to watch them. My cousin loves them.
