Aussie school holds "Dress Like a Disabled Person Day"

This is without a doubt one of the stupidest "disability awareness" ideas ever. If the people behind it actually HAD any "disability awareness", they'd be aware that people with disabilities dress just like anybody else.

The intention of the fundraiser, devised by the school's Student Representative Council, had been for students to come in with a bandaged arm or leg, he explained.

INJURED people wear a bandage on an arm or leg.

So, if you show up wearing a name tag saying, "I'm on the Student Rep Council" and say that that indicates your mental disability, exactly how long will you be in trouble?

Though actually, most mentally challenged people I know have better social awareness than to come up with such a lame idea.
