I used to work in a youth club that was especially for the disabled. You'd think the titans were modelled on some of them. There was a huge variety of physical and mental disabilities and seeing the portrayal of the titans was slightly uncomfortable for me that reason. I distinctly remember going on a group trip and my aunt picking me up to give me a lift home. I got off the bus, introduced her to a few of the people I was friendly with. She as visibly uncomfortable (not in a nasty way, in a "these poor people way") and when we got in the car she had tears in her eyes. This was from watching people get off the bus and spending at most five minutes with them. I was thinking about that while watching the show. I honestly don't know if the creator modelled his monsters off of the disabled, but fuck me, some of the titans look and move like animated versions of the kids I worked with. If this was deliberate part of me wants to punch him.
`But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
`Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
`How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
`You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'
