making someone with social anxiety talk in front of a class is like asking someone with a broken leg to go run a mile. except, one is acceptable and the other is considered wrong. something obviously needs to change
Although I sympathize with your perspective I recommend you work more on the metaphor. A broken leg almost, without exception, has a known cause, an established healing procedure, and return to functionality time frame. The physical therapists who had the break victim run a mile would be absolutely prosperous to do so. He our she would be immediately fired from the clinic. Their action can only be seen as a form of treachery. A person with social anxiety disorder, on the other hand has a condition with no known cause, and a cure or method of healing has yet been established. The person forcing them to speak in front of a crowed has misdiagnosis the condition as a simple fear, fears can be overcome when we are forced to”face our fears” So you now see the foolishness of your statement? A person who is misguided even if guilty of ignorance, cannot be said to be the equal of one who touches with malice and ill intent. The former ignorant to a complex only recently understood neurological condition, the latter insulting an injury a five year old would understand.
