    My Sister

    While I have a cocktail of disabilities myself, most of them related to ADHD or on the autistic scale, my twin sister is physically crippled. She's quadroplegic, legally blind, unable to speak, eplieptic, narcoleptic, and half a dozen other things I can never keep track of. I...

    My mom is a special ed teacher

    and I want to be a speech therapist for special ed. I work with the kids a lot and love them so much and it seriously breaks my heart when people think it's okay to be disrespectful to them in any way.

    It's not right at all

    I really dislike any type of bullying

    but to bully someone who can't even defend themselves really makes me mad.

    People like that are ignorant

    and stupid. They don't know him much they hurt that person, what if they had a disability also? Wouldn't they get mad or sad if someone made fun of them? Of course NOT. 😤😤😤

    I just think it makes you look cold hearted

    when you make fun of someone because they weren't born "perfect" like you and can't function the same way. They're still people. They still have a heart, and lungs, and love candy and hate math like every other living creature. The only difference between you and them really is...

    Very happy that my school has a great special

    education program and the kids are really not made fun of at all. It's considered a "loser" thing to do if you make fun of or mock a child with severe autism or Down syndrome in my school. One of the few winning qualities about the people I'm with every day.

    My boyfriend is a quadriplegic,

    and one of my biggest pet peeves is when someone tells me what a "good person" I am because I'm with him. Dating someone in a wheelchair doesn't make me a good person, it just doesn't make me a shallow *******.

    I have become offended at the term 'retarded'

    in recent years due to my best friend having a son with autism. The word is thrown around as if it has careless meaning, but it does and can be a very painful word to those with mental disabilities.

    I can understand what the children go through. I feel looked down upon by some on this site. I recently told someone here that I have epilepsy and they stopped talking. I don't know if I should tell people about it anymore.

    My aunt is mentally retarded, and there are several kids at my school with disabilities. The kids I know are so sweet and kind, and it makes me so sad to see anyone treat another human badly. Disabled people need our help, and we can't start by making fun of them.
