The point about getting choked up is because a bunch of relative young people chose to do something nice for a human being that life has not been to nice to to begin with.

Its a wonderful gesture, and its enforced by the fact that these aren't grown adults with life experience and knowledge that comes from a long life.

Its very easy for a teenager to sho away from whats abnormal, but here a group has decided to instead embrace.

Huge thumbs up, and a big middle finger for anyone that decided this was a bad thing

It's not the handicapped fault but it would fix things if we didn't lived under a monetary based system instead.

Would give us a lot more time to actually care for them instead of faking it.

As I can see with most of the comments left here, people are getting meaner and meaner towards handicapped... can't say I never saw this comming the way our society is evolving.

No time to take care of the handicapped in your family because of your work and if you don't work and do take care of one you just can't do what you want because you're the only one taking care of that person (there won't be anyone else taking your place because they're too busy with their work and their lives) and you just can't leave that person by herself, it would be just mean.

You can call social services but the quality of the service is always questionable and there are always consequences if you call someone else to the rescue. So we try to hide the fact that the life of handicapped people is the lowest of lows by giving them all sorts of bonus and gifts... and people hate them/abuses them because of that.

Why would I get choked up? I mean, other than the fact that we live in a society where everyone who has a condition like this is treated with the utmost pity. Yeah, that's pretty drating sad.

Why would anyone but her mother get choked up?

Only reason I could think of that I would get choked up was if someone found out I voted for her and was choking me.

I don't think she's ugly at all, but the only crappy part is...WE know and even SHE knows she got prom queen with "The pity vote." My school did the same thing. Prom Queen went to a girl who's mom had just died and her court consisted of a girl who's house had just burned down, a chubby girl and a girl who's mom was a teacher. The KINGS court consisted of a guy with a deformed arm, guy in a wheelchair and another guy wityh known family problems. They all knew why they made the court!

If she got it just for being sick, sounds shallow and maybe cliche. 'Jagweed' indeed.

paperduck i was gunna say something similar. how is treating them better than a "normal" person would get treated (ie, just GIVING her the crown for the same of it) any better than treating the "normal" person better than her? Everyone preaches equality, and then goes out of their way to treat those "lesser" than themselves excessively well in order to make themselves feel better. Everything circles back to selfishness.

I see your point. It's can be seen as saying, "For a disabled person, you're not bad!" Kind of insulting, in that view. But I think that those who give these awards are trying to keep those with afflictions from feeling, and being, left out. There's honor in that. I'm undecided here. I'd say it would have to be judged on a case-by-case basis.

If I was disabled, I don't think I'd want people just giving me faux awards to make me feel better. It would have the EXACT opposite effect (that is if I was able to reason through things at a minimal level).

I'm not heartless, I think the best thing to do is not automatically treat them one way or another. That seems the most dignified.
