Tourettes Syndrome Awareness Month on May, 2018: Have You Heard of Tourette Syndrome?
May, 2018 is Tourettes Syndrome Awareness Month 2018. Tourette Syndrome Archives • Elle Cosimano the Tourette Syndrome
Opinion: Do you think that awareness should be raised when it comes to Tourette's syndrome?
Actually, between 1 and 10 people per 1000 have tourette syndrome, so that's a lot of people!
I agree that there should be more awareness, but with that being said, there's quite a bit being done already. The tourette syndrome association do loads of work to raise awareness and provide support for families and individuals affected by TS.
There's also a tourette syndrome awareness month :)
But there's still a lot to be done - most people don't know what tourette syndrome is. Loads of people have heard of it before, but most people just think that it's some weird disorder that makes you swear a lot - where in reality only 5% of people with tourette's swear (coprolalia is the medical term).
Why is that people complain about Black History Month but dont complain about the other months?
I think it is retarded to have a black history month. Most of those other things you listed are to raise awareness for things like disorders and illnesses.
The jews were treated worse then the blacks more recently and they don't have a holocaust month. Atheists and every religion other than catholics were tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Do they have a month? White people get the most disadvantages nowadays and we don't have a month.
If you don't believe me go look at the requirements for standardized testing, if you are white you have to score higher on your exam in order to pass. High schools are allowed to have a Minority Student Union, Ebony Club, Black Honor Society. White clubs are not allowed due to racism. White people have a harder time getting on government assistance. I have tourettes and Autism and I am unable to get on government assistance. My disability lawyer even said (in joking) "too bad you are not black, then it would be easier to get you ssi". There is a channel called BET and a magizine called Ebony. Do you see a white magazine or a white only tv channel? They even have their own award shows that only give awards to black actors, singers, etc. They are allowed to call themselves the "N" word without getting in trouble.
Now I expect to get thumbs down. But just ponder this. If my yahoo avater was black would you have thumbed me down for saying these things? probably not.
