Frankie Boyle And Harvey Price: A Special Parent Responds

December 13, 2010

Thanks must go out to @humphreycushion who Tweeted a link to this great post earlier today. The post is special father Paul Saxton’s reaction to Frankie Boyle’s recent disablist remarks against Harvey Price. It’s well worth a read.

Do any other special parents have thoughts to share on the incident? Please leave them in the comments below.

    Thank you for this – and for linking to my blog post. I really appreciate it.

    But I have to say that I don’t like the term ‘special parent’. There are reasons for that that I don’t want to go into here.

    Hope you understand – and I hope you understand that I’m not just trying to be difficult.

    Best wishes

    Hi Paul

    Thanks for commenting. I’m sorry that you don’t like the term ‘special parent.’ As a ‘special child’ I know several ‘special parents’ and I refer to them in this way because we are ‘special children-‘ not because they are doing anything unusual, or anything that any good parent would not do.

    Best wishes

    Thanks for the flagging up Paul’s post, it is as you say very interesting. However an advisory about the use of the ‘c’ word might be an idea, and I’m not referring to c for Cripple.

What are you thinking?
