Just Because You’re “Special”.. Doesn’t Mean You’re Special

My older brother is learning disabled and, as much as I love him, he's a total prick sometimes. Not in a standoffish Rainman kinda way either, more in a selfish jerk kinda way. I feel like people feel good about themselves when they give the less fortunate the benefit of the doubt. Like "oh, he's autistic, he didn't mean that." Maybe he did! Maybe that autistic guy thinks you're a dipshit and he's being a jerk about it. People are people regardless of anything that has happened to them or anything they were born with.
