Hating Comic Sans Is Ableist

Dad of dis-lexics

Thanks Lauren Hudgins for sharing your story and for being so supportive of your sister. Two of my sons are dyslexic and I used to worry that they would never be able to read, much less graduate high school or go to university. It’s sad to see hurdles and insults directed at them by people who think it’s funny to mock a typeface, or a font size, or colored paper. Happily, despite the prejudice and obstacles, my oldest son is off to university this fall to study engineering. He will probably never learn to spell without the help of both spellcheck and friends who proofread for him, but I’m no longer worried about his future success or happiness due to his invisible disability.
