a.There are some images given to the disability in chapter one of No Pity book. In this chapter of the book, the disabilities are oppressed and seen people of no importance. Another image given to the disability is their struggle to gain their civil rights (Shapiro, 2014). They are considered as minority people who are struggling for their civil rights. Another image is expressed when the use of the telethons as well as handicapped for the collection of their survival money is just a playing pity. The disabilities are just fooled that they are considered as special but in a real sense, they are treated in a different way from other people.
b.The image of giving direct comparison to the disabilities focusing on John advert that indicates children to be vaccinated to avoid them being like John this is so much of criticizing disabilities. The advert was not supposed to use a direct comparison which seems so attacking to John who is disabled (Shapiro, 2014). The disabilities are considered as a dependant, young children who need charity all the time. These two images of disability damages the image of the individuals with disabilities through convincing the community thinks little about the people with disability.
Minority Perspective best reflects the disability rights movement. Disabilities are considered as minorities in rights movement and they struggle to get their rights upheld (Shapiro, 2009).
There is fear on elimination of disabilities’ policy which is about to be imposed. It is feared that the disabilities could be eliminated through scientific ways of detection before they are born (Shapiro, 2009). This is well seen so dangerous to the already existing victims.
Language is very important in the case of the disability rights movements as it is the tool to bring changes on disability perspective (Shapiro, 2009). Through the language, negative portrayal of the disability is changed for better.
