    My older bro has Autism Spectrum Disorder,

    ADHD and Aspergers. People look at him weirdly and when they do I always say: "He isn't a freak show so stop staring!"

    I don't know why, but back in elementary school,

    I happened to be around more special needs students than normal back then. I got to know a lot of them because I has needs back then as well. Growing up with them as my needs basically disappeared made me feel like I need to make sure nobody picks on them, so even though I moved...

    I have a mental disability/disorder

    so I know what it's like. Although I try my hardest to hide it, and I am high-functioning even though I'm a schizophrenic, it still shows. So I know the pain of being called dumb, retarded, crazy, psychotic, irrational, everything. I helped out with spread the word to end the...

    My sis is five and is autistic.

    We were born six years apart yet it seems like we are twins. It burns like hell to see people pointing and staring at her as if she was possessed. I will admit that it is difficult being the kid in the family never getting attention, never being able to invite your friends over...

    it's ignorant and downright disgusting.

    I have spina bifida and am in a wheelchair and i've had crap from people all my life. Its damn low and those idiots should be ashamed of themselves. i'm one of the lucky ones who knows whats going on and can defend myself, but there are many out there who aren't so fortunate.

    My mother is a Special Education teacher

    and her sister, my aunt, was severely disabled and died at the age of 17 due to a bad lung transplant. I hate to hear the word "retard" unless they use it correctly and say "this person is mentally retarded." Only then does it not **** me off. The people who use the word like...

    I never understood why people felt like it was

    ok for them to do so. I've seen it happen a few times here and there throughout school when I was younger. And every time I saw it, it got under my skin. There was this time when I was a kid that I'd finally snapped. My friend (at the time) didn't like this other girl, (for...

    I thinking making fun of disabled people is one

    of the most ignorant things someone can do. Honestly, I think people who make fun of disabled people have issues with themselves and making fun of other people makes them feel good about themselves.

    that had special needs since kindergarten. She was really funny, kind, caring, and so much more. Everyone loved her and she loved everyone back. When kids that didn't know her, stared at her and made bad comments it made me angry. She may be a little slower than most of us and...

    It disgusts me to no end to see people actively

    insulting or making fun of a disabled person, for something which cannot be helped. It makes me want to smack them over the back of a head so they can see how they like people making fun of them. I had a friend who spent his far too short life in a wheelchair, he was about 4...

    Do you know even staring too long is rude?

    I always try to avoid staring at someone who has disabilities. It's because if you stare too long at someone, it may cause them to think every other person around them is watching and studying them.

    Hey guys don't get so angry its not worth it .

    If anything don't get angry but pity all those who do it as its ignorance and fear of the unknown makes people do it . Feel sorry for them as its them with a problem their mentally impaired . Try to educate them if you cant ignore them .

    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 *******.

    who has autism. And he goes to school with me. When ever I see him in the hallways I make sure that I give him a hug and ask him how his day is. I hate when other people make fun of the special needs kids at my school. It makes me wanna punch them in the face.

    When someone stares to demean

    or yells out a slur, it proves that they have no heart. We are stronger than they will EVER be. If they are just curious, I am open to genuine questions. I don't think you'd like me when I'm really angry.
