But think of the actors, performers, musicians, athletes...it's discriminatory and disrespectful to their art...THINK OF THE ARTISTS! Imagine how HIGH their depression and anxiety will grow without CLAPPING?! =p
You know what else? If clapping is offensive to people with hearing issues, I say walking is offensive to people in wheel chairs. STOP WALKING!
In other words, this is F-ing stupid. Welcome to the modern "Everything is offensive" culture. You know, a step backwards for culture.
Yes, this is all B.S. I grew up in the '80's, and don't remember all of this nonsense. People have gotten to be real "politically correct" sheep & easily offended wimps in the past 10-15 years especially. You can't say/do anything without upsetting someone. Nimrods.
