In response to the hilarious 'Faux Pas' comment about 'handicapped'   Thursday, September 28, 2017 (5:21 a.m.) 

Yesterday evening I was reading the Faux Pas page of this great website and came across a person who apparently felt offended because Christian used the word 'handicapped' in this review. For what it's worth (probably not a lot):

I am blind myself (so not visually impaired) and absolutely hate such politically correct comments and people. The only reason people might say 'differently abled' is because they have been unable to come to terms with whatever DISability they might have. I try not to be held back by my HANDICAP, but it's just stupid to claim that people like me somehow have different abilities and are superior to non-DISabled people. I can't think of anything that makes me better than people who are ABNORMAL, unless needing someone to take you to an unfamiliar environment qualifies. While I rarely read the word 'handicapped' in English these days (I am a translator who specialises in British English, where they seem to prefer 'disabled'), people need to say or write far worse things to offend me.

So, Mr Clemensen, please keep calling things and people what they are (and continue the Hans Zimmer bashing, it makes my day every time.)
