What an asshole. Ignore that crappy teacher. I can't stand it when people mock or laugh at someone who struggles with stuttering/reading out loud. I read really quickly in my head, almost "skimming" fast. Basically like sight reading, and I can totally grasp the concept and understand everything, but catch me trying toread out loud? No way. My mouth can't keep up with my eyes. People literally think I can't read, and I'll be able to read something five times over before they are done with it. My friend also reads super fast but stutters really badly. I don't understand the humor.
But it's not a disability. Sure, it sucks, and yes I agree that people need to stop laughing at OP, but a stutter is a LEARNED BEHAVIOR. That's totally different from a disability. Has no one on here seen The King's Speech? In the movie he developed it as a young child due to stress and ridiculous expectations. You can learn to overcome it and it'll never happen again.
#71- Actually, stuttering is often the result of learning difficulties, or some sort of physical disability and is medically classed as a 'motor disease'. You do not always develop a stutter, sometimes you're born unable to articulate properly. Also OP, your professor is a RAGING bitch, and should be fucking fired for that pathetic display of immaturity in a job that should command respect from her pupils.
people with lisps are cool with me and I have no problem with them. I actually like talking to them because they're normally really friendly, mainly because I've never met someone with a lisp that thought he was better than everyone else. good listeners good, since most aren't very confident in their voice.
yea because someone's uncomfort and disability is hilarious..stupid cunt
To all of you who said the lady is mean, my sister stutters occasionally and laughs about it every time. So do I. She doesn't care because she knows stuttering is somewhat funny. Some people can't hold their laughter very well. I can't at all. But, the fact that his professor tried not to laugh is a good thing. Get it straight.
Hang in there OP! That's pretty unprofessional on her part, as an educator you'd think she'd know better than to laugh at a student
