CHS 360 Section 2: Disabilities in the Media Note: Anything that is highlighted was specifically noted by Professor Dunn that it will be on the exam! So know these! Supertragic Category of film and TV portrayal of disabilities. Tragic, need to feel sorry for person with a disability. Ex: Tiny Tim, The Hunchback Superhero/Supergimp/Crip : Character with some sort of super ability. Reinforces the gap between “normal” and “disabled” people. Ex: Rainman, Forrest Gump Extreme Media portrayals can result in unrealistic expectations and an idea that everyone with a disability should have some sort of special skills. Remember: Think about what characters you’ve seen in the media with some sort of special skill that is popular. Do you think of them as someone with a disability? We mostly forget these characters have a disability (Nemo, Daredevil, Professor X). This in turn enforces the idea that someone with a disability can only be considered “normal” if they have some sort of “super ability.”
