Gal Gadot Excoriated Over 'Ableist' Stephen Hawking Tweet
Supergenius Stephen Hawking shuffled off this mortal coil earlier this week. Naturally the Twittersphere was full of touching tributes from Twitterers, big and small. Among the payers of respects was the ever-lovely Gal Gadot.
Wonder Woman had this to say about Professor Hawking:
Rest in peace Dr. Hawking. Now you're free of any physical constraints.. Your brilliance and wisdom will be cherish… https://t.co/5ZqdZrimvv— Gal Gadot (@Gal Gadot) 1521035383.0
You couldn't ask for kinder words. In death, there is peace and rest from the pains of the world. Apparently, not everyone felt the same way. Gal's remarks ran afoul of the Twitter thought police. For the dumbest of reasons:
@GalGadot Gal I am chronically ill. Can't shower or even get myself out of bed. Lost 18 years thus far. But I ran a… https://t.co/tI0zPMXLnE— amara campbell (@amara campbell) 1521038493.0
Uh, where's the bigotry?
@GalGadot I think you’re fantastic Gal but this tweet is very ableist. His physical constraints didn’t stop him fro… https://t.co/vmWKpzxBmx— Zimmy (@Zimmy) 1521037684.0
Again, where did Gal celebrate Hawking's death?
@GalGadot This is very offensive to disabled people I suggest u delete this... So ridiculous— khanyisa (@khanyisa) 1521074133.0
The only thing ridiculous is this mass leftist backlash.
@GalGadot @twshivshiv Thank you "Wonder Woman" for that completely ableist comment. Being disabled is not a restrai… https://t.co/OsrSNSvZeZ— Aimee Talbot 🐇👸🏼👯♀️ (@Aimee Talbot 🐇👸🏼👯♀️) 1521079815.0
Judging from these reactions, I'm guessing "free from constraints" translates to "eat sh*t in hell, wheelchaired robot guy" in leftistspeak. Give me a break.
These leftists must not get out much. Crap, was that discriminatory against agoraphobes? I need to check my house-leaving privilege. "Free from constraints" is a common tribute. It extends even to people who aren't confined to wheelchairs and forced to use a Speak & Spell to talk. The implication is any pain or suffering a person felt while living is now over.
Gal never remotely said someone's disability invalidates their existence. You know we've reached peak political correctness when you can't refer to being frozen and mute for a half century as even a minor inconvenience. Methinks choosing between having use of his body and total body paralysis would be a no-brainer. Especially for a super-nerd with a suped-up brain like Hawking.
It's bad when you can't even pay respects anymore without having leftists tear you a new rectum and label you an (insert "oppressed" group)phobe/ist. Stop whining and grow a pair, lefties. Double farts! That was patriarchal. I give up.
