ADHD new title for Fox cartoon show (This is Offensive)
It offends me that Fox Television has chosen to use ADHD (Animation Domination High Definition) as the title of their new late night animation program. The program is comprised of six 15 minute programs. Since the programs are half of the time of a typical comedy Fox is using ADHD to promote that the shows would appeal to people with low attention spans. If Fox was making light of another disability I believe there would be more of an uproar. Since ADHD is often misunderstood by the general public Fox feels that it can get away with making light of a learning disability. Even though I enjoy animation I will not watch this program because of the title.
The correct medical term for Attention Deficit Disorder is ADHD. There are 3 subtypes of ADHD: Predominantly inattentive(commonly called ADD), Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive, and Combined. Through out this blog and the ADHD related sites linked from this blog the terms ADHD, AD/HD, and ADD are used interchangeably.
