Ever hear a really good joke about Polio? Or made a casual reference to someone having Hepatitis? Or maybe you teased your buddy by saying he has Muscular Dystrophy?
Of course you’ve never done that, because you are not a terrible person! You would never make fun of someone for having a physical illness, but folks make all kinds of offhand remarks about people with mental illnesses without giving it a second thought.
