I am always at a loss over quite why we allowed ourselves to become quite so politically correct in this country. Yes, we need to be caring and thoughtful about minorities and those who suffer challenging ‘issues’. But, sometimes we go too far – often this is highlighted by advertising or even official campaigns from some of our European neighbours.
The video below is a classic example – it is from Norway and has been created by the Norwegian Association of the Blind. It is part of a campaign to get blind people considered by companies as employees. Yes it is perhaps somewhat ‘bad taste’, but considering who has produced it I have no issue with showing it here.
Plus it has green credentials! (OK that may be pushing it!).
But this does pose the question that if people with disabilities are comfortable with something like this does this make it acceptable?
