Me neither. It's just something I take the piss about a bit rather than a real opinion. Half-serious.
You're way off the mark here Uppercut. It's like comparing Parkison's disease to not being able to run very fast.

Of course not. Nor does lacking in basic intelligence. Where does the difference lie, exactly?
Are you being deliberately obtuse? Have you never known anyone with dyslexia?
Aside from this, you are ignoring the fact that with adjustments made dyslexia can be countered, for example by using different coloured paper or special computer screens. What do you propose is done to aid 'stupid' people? There's a difference between not understanding a question and not being able to see it, it would be ridiculous not to acknowledge and account for this.
I'm being deliberately obtuse with the use of the word "stupid". Thing is, there are all kinds of mental issues, many of which haven't yet been identified, that can make learning very difficult. Special computer screens and coloured paper are very specific measures to combat dyslexia, but the majority of those currently in place would also be appropriate to combat any other natural difficulty with reading and writing- some of which would, in society, just be labelled as stupidity.
I really don't actually care that much. I'm just predisposed to argue back at people.
Aside from this, as Pothas said earlier on, other learning disabilities are accounted for with benefits and special treatment.
This is in Years 10,11 and 12 mind you. And as far as I can tell, they don't have a disability, they just managed to make it through the education system without learning basic literacy.
