I laughed until I cried. Right here with ya buddy.
SavageNation... I completely agree with your statement.
I`m not confusing it. I know what it is and I know the differences. I also know that although my aunt had downs syndrome, she was not stupid. I`m not calling her a rocket scientist, I`m saying that they are not dumb and unwortly of life. Maybe it was worded deceivingly, however that is what I meant. And either way, no matter how awkward...they are PEOPLE. No matter how many chromosomes. No living, breathing, aware human being who has a chance to live life with people who DO love and accept them should have that taken away because they`re `awkward`
also,"I always encourage him to go to nightclubs and other places where people pick up women."Usually it`s the opposite...
Should go die. Like, now. :P
I get what she`s saying as they`re like everyone else but... they have a mental illness. He probably didn`t even want a relationship until Ms. Mommy explained everyone else had one. People with down syndrome, from what I have seen, are like a child in an adults body. I know an autistic boy in my grade, also. The two are hardly alike. The woman that helps out in the lunch kitchen watches the students and rubs her belly with her shirt up. These people aren`t really mentally mature enough to handle sex.
But that`s just me. And before I get flogged, remember, I heart you all. :P
She sounds pretty stupid to me.
also, to the chick who said that downies "can also turn out to be some of the kindest people you have ever met, and smart on top of that." you`re confusing down syndrome with autism. the mean IQ of someone with downs is around 40. people with autism tend to be unusually smart but are incredibly awkward people.
What`s wrong with you?
"They`re people, too, just like us!"
no. no they`re not. people? perhaps. people like us? don`t think so.
Wow, are you KIDDING? They`re people, too, just like us! Maybe some people find them to be a `burden` but others can see them as normal people. Not only that, but they can also turn out to be some of the kindest people you have ever met, and smart on top of that.
Maybe I`m slightly biased, as my aunt had Downs, but honestly. She never hurt anyone, or burdened anyone. Hell, she had a JOB. It doesn`t seem to me that this lady has a `fetish` for them, but that she sees other people will turn their noses up to them.
She is, in my opinion, wrong in what she`s begging for. But in my eyes, there is nothing wrong with her adopting these children and giving them love others
HE MUST BE A LESBIAN THEN XD
I am of the opinion that Down Syndrome children should be disposed of upon birth... Don`t keep the thing alive, it will be useless to society, be a financial burden and a physical burden to the guardian, might as well kill it off before it ruins the life of someone who could do something otherwise usefull.
If she has a fetish for kids with down syndrome, why doesn`t she have sex with the kid, it`s not like she`s their real mother.
It also said "including the experience of a physical relationship and even finding love.". And she thinks sending a retard to Amsterdam to have sex with a hooker is "love"....what a dumb b!tch.
Normal here meaning that 99.8% of people have 23 pairs.
They should not be prejudiced against. I would hire someone with down syndrome provided they meet the requirements as well as someone who didn`t.
That is pretty much what we should be limited to.
Not:"Omg, quick, get some water! That guy is on FIRE!!!!" "I for one feel we should welcome our Flammable-Americans, who is to say he`s inferior for being on fire?""Great now he`s dead". "How dare you, the correct term is Continuity-Challenged"
Still i do hope he does find real love not just sex from some girl that pities him or gets paid off by his mother or a gold digger bitch.
"If he doesn`t get a girlfriend, I will feel really bad, because I have sold him this thing that he is like everybody else."
So she is trying to get herself out of a lie she told her son? Nice mom...real nice. Reality is reality, he isnt like everyone else and will never be like everyone else. He is drastically different. Though he deserves to be treated like everyone else because he is no less human. His mother is just a freak who has a fetish for adobting those with down syndrome, and getting them sex.
i hope he gets a girlfriend with Down Syndrome and he marries her, just to spite the mother, stupid bitch.
I`m not laughing at him, and this definitely isn`t a laughing matter. But seriously, you couldn`t make this up.
If you deny that, then there is no point in me wasting my time discussing it with you."
Actually, a female can be born with an extra x cromosone, (xxx), and that extra cromosone will become a barr body and have no effect on normal cell function. Males can also be born with an extra x cromosone, (xxy)and live perfectly normal lives. With males, the condition is called Kleinfelter`s syndrome, or trisomy x. Although it is not normal for a human to have this number of chromosones, it does not cause a seirous disability.
ashamed of her son much?
I hope he gets laid.
thats probably why he isnt getting any.
Okay, one less step on the weird ladder...
Don`t get me wrong... I *totally* support that she`s helping him develop a healthy social life, and encouraging him to have romantic relationships. That is truly wonderful.
However, it sounds like their primary goal is sex, and everything else about the relationship (companionship, friendship, other forms of romance, compatibility, etc) is entirely secondary. Does she really want to teach her son that sex is the ultimate goal and that nothing else is important? And if that is really the definition of "everyone else" then that just makes me sad for humanity.
What? Why is that a fail? Explain.
Do you deny that the correct number of chromosomes for a human is 46, and if an individual does not have exactly 46 chromosomes, if viable, they will have a very serious disability?
If you deny that, then there is no point in me wasting my time discussing it with you.
I never said I would, but you don`t have to act like such a jerk
that`s a terrible thing to say. but you must be a terrible person to laugh at his disability
that aside she`s a crappy parent. i hope he learns about the other more important half of the relation rather than just the sexual part. gl otto
Just the way you said that... Honestly, it really made me want to punch you in the mouth.
i dont know whether to Aww at that or laugh
Yet she says this.
"I would prefer to see him with a girlfriend who doesn`t have Downs."
Guess people with Down-syndrome just aren`t good enough to have sex with her son..?
haha so did i..i was like...whaaaat? D:.....oh
You`d don`t have to accept my apology, but it`s there anyway. :)
And Lando, yeah, I have failed science classes before. Not proud of it, but, I`ll admit it. ::P
nature didnt make them unatractive for that, nature just made them (males) infertile
Mean, but there is truth in this statement. Our instincts tell us to bump genitalia with sexy people because, before the cosmetic industry, sexy people were also healthy people, and were most likely to produce genetically superior children.
if nobody wants to have sex with him, its not their fault...
Aren`t all men?
Link to info.
Interestingly the first paper on the topic was by Dr. Langdon Down (hence down`s syndrome), and was titled: Observations on an Ethnic Classification of Idiots.
(And yes Mr. Bippy, the article mentions it twice).
but why your retarded parents turned out to be attractive? nature is unpredictable.
this is fairly awkward idea. i would like for him to have this happen, he should not be so cast out because of his condition, but this whole news article makes it seem so... strange.
This comment caught my attention. This is ignorance from an asshat. There are many things that are genetic but don`t make people unattractive. No one is perfect, that`s why we are human. When reproducing there is always a chance of genetic traits manifesting in the offspring. In my family its heart conditions. Personally, I was born with a hole in my heart, does that make me any less of a person? Did I automatically grow up unattractive? No and no. I still can`t believe how people can be so ignorant.
Normal is a relative term. When it is anatomically correct to have 46 chromosomes, and he has 47, he is abnormal. Denying that fact is choosing to be ignorant. That said, I hope he does find what he`s looking for.
You fail at Biology, Life Sciences, and at life in general - a person with Down Syndrome cannot reproduce regardless of their appearance because they have the incorrect number of chromosomes. What does their appearance have to do with that? You`re just a jerk.
"its illegal even with mild downs its no differant then having sex with someone that is intoxicated. they can give consent but thats not enough since they are no in the right state of mind to give consent legally"
who is to say that people with downs are not in a right state of mind. their brain is wired differently, but unless it is severe downs where they can hardly speak, then they are in a correct state of mind
An honest man there ladies, dont stampede please.
I`m afraid beggars can`t be choosers Otto. It`s either you face you fears or you bang a little girl. How would you like that? I don`t think anyone would. That`s sick and wrong and if anyone got `turned on` over what I just said, they deserve to be shot in the face.
For all you know the only reason she might not do it with her daughter is she thinks men are sick drats whereas women are not.
Hmm... ive looked online and i can`t find the law one way or another. However, having downs syndrome does not mean you are incapable of decisions. People with downs syndrome can can have careers and good lives. I found a bunch of downs syndrome societies, research groups etc in the U.S. all saying that people with downs syndrome have the right to sex, can give consent and have safe sex. No links given to the law though.
So is every other man in the world.
I should take him out to the clubs next time he`s down here
Sick, sexist bastards.
But i would imagine each case woule be judged individually, there would be no law making it illegal to have sex with someone with downs syndrome. The human rights groups would be up in arms. Rightfully so.
Well this article is from the Uk - and no. I also doubt it is illegal in the U.S. too. That`s like saying it is illegal for people with downs syndrome to have kids or get married.
Of course there could be instances where it would be inappropriate.
Now I`m gonna go home, and have sex with my wife.
Wow dude, no need to be such a douchebag. Forgive me for not being clear enough. It is not legal in city limits, but it is easy enough to get a taxi to take you to a brothel where it is legal.
"`I would like to see him with a girlfriend. I would prefer to see him with a girlfriend who doesn`t have Downs."
So, the woman berates society for "normal" people not sleeping with people with down`s syndrome... but she doesn`t want her son to sleep with one either.
It is legal to get a prostitute in Vegas. Problem solved...
