Does this mean he's more or less likely to have his head up his azz?

Nature sure can be cruel. This poor soul doesn't know any other way of living or how it is to be "normal", yet, he does appear to be happy just being alive. Glad to know he has a loving and supportive family. I don't know how long he can survive in that way, but I hope that his life is as painless as possible. Seeing people like this makes me feel ashamed to even complain about the little things in life. Be grateful and thankful everyday for who you are because it could be worse.

You were just trying to be funny, but still not an admirable or witty comment. Why bother when it's at the expense of a person who struggles to to survive and function every day of his life as normal healthy people do and take for granted. I like humor just like anyone, but not when it's ridiculing the unfortunate, sickly and down trodden of our society.

Apparently he does not think of himself that way...if you believe anything about this story.

And my remark can be taken two ways: Either he's more likely to have his head up his azz or he's less likely to have his head up his azz.

That ambiguity clearly implicates everyone else as much as the individual.

You can't really know for sure what he really thinks about himself. I said he APPEARS to be happy. That doesn't necessarily mean that I know for certain that he is. Obviously he has no choice but to accept his condition and make the best of it. He has learned to live with his condition, but that doesn't at all mean that he is completely happy. He's probably had his moments when he is totally frustrated and humiliated, and who wouldn't. Which ever way you meant it to be, it's still using his unfortunate disability and handicap, to make a joke. Perhaps I'm being too sensitive, but I can't help but to find it difficult to make light of a person who is severely impaired as this young man seems to be. I do have a sense of humor, but not in the same way that you do, but you do have the right and freedom to do so.

"You can't really know for sure what he really thinks about himself. I said he APPEARS to be happy."

He says he's learned he's just like everyone else. That's what he says.

If you and I don't know whether that's what he really thinks, then you certainly are in no position to know whether or not he would find my remark amusing.

Which, again, allowed for the fact that he might have or might not have his head up his azz than others.

I don't find you very convincing. Patronizing, yes. I don't think you're going to like the back and forth here in "Weird," whose stories tend to be exploitative or mocking or about the very strange or outrageous to begin with. Perhaps you'd do better at freeper...where everything's totally normal.
