Why do Bad Guys have Scars?

Let's talk about acceptance... one of the biggest issues we deal with in the craniofacial community is our representations in the media. Now, as you all know, we are very excited about the upcoming movie Wonder and we believe that it will start a sea change in how disabilities are represented in the media (notice the book on Ryan's shelf...). However, for a long time, we've been ignored, or worse, portrayed as monolithically evil.

Check out Ryan's humorous message on the need to change the way facial differences are often portrayed in popular entertainment and think about ways you can help promote diversity in media representation.
