But in some respects Jerry has not gotten the credit he deserves. He's also a patronizing ableist who's successfully promoted out-dated, prejudicial attitudes about disability. In recognition of this noncomplishment, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to give him an Oscar – for being a humanitarian.
As a disability rights activist, I'm sure Jerry considers me one of the "leeches. . . . Disabled people who are . . . bitter at the bad hand they've been dealt." Whatever. I've still gotta ask:
Who's worse? The douchebag who spews this stuff, or the Board of Douches that gave him an award for it?
