...has anyone other than me noticed that there seems to be a boom in characters (mostly in the fandom) with disabilities? Lazy-eye (think Derpy), narcolepsy, missing a limb, blindness, etc?

I don't think having characters with a disability is a problem. I have a few characters with disabilities (Aart has Mild Aspergers, Damari can't use magic - which is considered a disability considering the universe he lives in, Robin is mute, Revan and her father are incapable of feeling emotions, Oscar has epilepsy, Flower has androphobia, etc).

What I mostly don't like is when they seem to be treating it as an accessory. You know? They don't show what the disability can /actually/ do to a person, how it /actually/ limits their abilities, and how it can /actually/ make them upset and miserable. They only show the "cute" or "convenient" episodes of the symptoms of their disability.

Everyone should watch things like ATLA for the character, Toph, and all instances with her, to see how it's done. Yes, they give her a means to work better with her disability, but also there are quite a few times where they show that her disability /still/ puts her at a disadvantage. And it's not just a one-time thing that they show this, it's quite a few times.

I'm sure others have noticed and others have gotten sick of it.
