I feel your sons pain, I`ve been dealing with having Aspergers for 18 years...most of those without even knowing what the hell was wrong with me, and I can tell you now that I f*cking hate it. I get up every day wishing I could somehow become normal, but knowing that all the medicine in the world can`t help me. So all I can say is good luck, you sound like a very understanding parent and I only hope you can help your son deal with it in a better way than my own parents have for me.
spot on. my 6 year old son has Aspergers. He is INCREDIBLY smart and is one of the top students in his class. what lets him down atm is the fact he has only just been diagnosed and not enough people understand autism and so tend to treat him like a neuro-typical kid when he does wrong..which he doesn`t respond to as he is not neuro-typical. i never knew anything about autism and would have probably looked at an autistic kid having a tantrum the same as people look at my son. but i am proud of him and he WILL do well. as did steven spielberg,einstein (apparently) and several other people with autism and other mental conditions who are SUPERIOR to dannydanko imho
DannyDanko, your a d!ck.
-terrible yah know? terrible
*someone comes out his shed*
- OH SHI- *runs*
When you`re talking about mentally disabled people like that, you are talking about kids I happened to love and know very well. Like I had said before, just because they are mentally disabled does not mean that they will never learn, and that they will be useless nothings their whole lives, it`s just that it takes them longer to learn. Where we learn to count to a hundred when we are eight, they learn how to do it when they`re fourteen. It doesn`t mean that they CAN`T learn, they just have to work at it a bit longer.
They are brilliant in their own ways. One autistic boy I know will remember any birthday that he reads, hears, or sees. Another boy can do HUGE puzzles faster then you`ll be able to believe.
xD davy once again has made my day hahahahaha
then intelligence and ability make me superior to mentally disabled people...
its pretty funny how you get angry at me for calling myself inferior to the mentally disabled but your quick to consider your opinion superior to mine
I`m saying, you have no idea what it`s like to be disabled, and you don`t know how hard it is. You should thank God, or whoever you believe in, that you aren`t, and wonder how you got so lucky. Knowing that people like you think so little of them, and going through what they have to makes them FAR better than you will ever be, but I try not to make a distinction. So you`re equal.
Saying theres no such thing as inferior has to be the most naive statement ever made. And i agree with the fact that choosing to be useless deserves even less respect than being useless by circumstance but it doesnt make me and less superior to people with mental disabilities.
partial legal immunity was an example, not the suggested norm. and for the record: my uncle was killed by a mentally disabled driver who ran a red light. he got 6 months in prison.
Crawl back under your little supremacist rock, jerkwad. They`re INFERIOR to you? I hope you`re joking... If not, you`ve revealed your callousness and ignorance to the world right there."
Oh i wish i had to work as hard as they do. Commit crimes, get off because of my condition go apply for a job and sue when i dont get it for the same reason. Get on medicaid and get more benefits than some of the best insurance policies because im "special". Have teachers bullsh.t my grades so they dont get fired due to NCLB`s ridiculous standards. And then entering society and saying you know what i want to be equal (just a little more equal than you). Difficult.
Also to your latest comment, yes. I am inferior to most of the adults in anykind of real career, and i am clearly not given as many rights as them. i cant vote, drive, drink or join the military until im deemed, through my
I don`t think so.Go play in traffic, you f*ckwit.

So sorry, you don`t have a soapbox to stand on in my opinion."
i didnt say that your siblings wouldnt be able to function, i just said that there inferior to me and the rest of normal society, which they are.
So sorry, you don`t have a soapbox to stand on in my opinion.
DannyDanko, when my brothers were diagnosed, my parents had to break the news to me that EDUCATED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS had said they would never walk, talk, be able to communicate, form relationships, or function in our society. They told me that they had been advised to put both of them in institutions. I was seven, Daniel was 5, and Noah was two and a half.
My parents took the hard route and fought for them at every turn, and now Daniel is going to college and already has a contract to work for the family company in hardware maintenance, and Noah will be living a full and fulfilling life. I don`t mind taking care of him, but it really doesn`t look like I`ll have to take care of EITHER of them!
I hope to God you never have kids, if you think that people in these situations should be weeded out because of inferiority.
"discrimination" against people who literally are going to contribute nothing to society (AND actually draw money out of my pocket via taxes) isnt discrimination for one reason: IF SOMEONE IS GENUINELY, STATISTICALLY, and CLEARLY inferior to an average person, it only makes sense to treat them as an inferior being.
almost all of the low and mid functioning mentally retarded and autistic people in the world are going to do absolutely nothing in their life except leech off the caring people in society. in the wild, these people would be either a: hunted by predation or b: die of natural causes. we are literally undoing the process of natural selection by considering and attempting to treat them as equals. THEY ARENT. PERIOD.
comparing this to the racism of the 1900s is absurd. ask yourself this: Whats the difference between a brown and a white egg? Color. What about the between a fresh egg and a rot
(a) You`re right. I should have said `Autistic, and on the MR scale` for Noah. Thanks.
(b) If that`s your outlook on it, I really pity your parents when they enter old age and can`t care for themselves. Or your siblings if they end up down on their luck/physically disabled/mentally disabled. Maybe people wherever the hell you`re from don`t give two sh*ts about their family, but we do... Hell, if my dad died today, my brothers would be here tomorrow. I love my family, and I guess it just throws me off that someone would be `okay` with someone living in an institution, shelter, or god-forbid, a freakin` shed.
Just my opinion.
Oh, and turtle... F*U*C*K Y*O*U.I`m done. "
a: mental retardation and autism are two completely different conditions, not one being a "stronger" version of the other
b: it wasnt their job to take care of the sister. providing her with ANY kind of shelter is a good gesture. they could have thrown her out on the street but they didnt
Oh, and turtle... F*U*C*K Y*O*U.I`m done.
Retard ist technically a slur. Listen to George Carlin, then come back little bot. Calling them "Mentally disabled" or "Special Needs" doesnt actually make them any better. It doesnt stop them having problems
well.. votes are over right? how about standing behind your new president elect intead of whining that he wouldn`t make a good president anyway but that goes pretty much off topic I guess :)
and you got an "Obama : Nope" avatar picture...
Just because you think Obama will make a terrible president, doesn`t make you a racist, in fact, voting for him, BECAUSE hes black, is racist.
Really? *looks left, right* Yeah, umm, I`m not seeing any marches for mentally disabled rights. Seems to be we have laws against the mistreatment of them. Also have people to take care of them, and homes for them to live in.Maybe you can find a worthy cause to latch onto.
Consider this a warning. Next time it`s permanent.
However, I find the bigger douches in this story are the neighbours who KNEW all about her living in the shed "...but didn`t realize how bad the conditions were." Are they for [email protected]#$%^` real? No one bothered to inform anyone.
It`s disgusting!! Apathetic bastards!!
I bet you`d be singing a different tune if you were handicapped. Though from your comments it would seem like you were.
Is he breaking enough rules yet to ban him yet?
Yeah, because living in a shed is always just amazing.7 pit bulls? Really?
I`m trying really hard to refrain from typing some really rude things that would surely get me banned.
Instead, I will say that I have worked with mentally disabled kids for about a year, and it really changes how you look at life. It`s not that they can`t learn, it`s that they learn slower. They get better everyday too. A girl with down syndrome that I work with was expected to live in a wheelchair her whole life, and her mind never be able to develop enough for her to communicate, and she`s proved all the doctors wrong. She can walk and she can sign things to you and is the sweetest girl you could ever hope to meet.
But, instead I would really rather reply, as politely as possible, that is people like you we need ridding of.
THEN die. We shouldn`t have to deal with the figurative stink.
I`m sorry, uncalled for, yes, but I totally thought of Sloth the entire time.
and you got an "Obama : Nope" avatar picture...
If life is fair our generation will be looked at with disdain for our disregard for the mentally disabled, just as we look at past generations with disdain for their disregard for blacks.
Die. Die slowly and painfully.
Things like this are slowly destroying any faith I had in humanity.
She totally would`ve had room, they don`t need 7...
