I Hate People Who Make Fun Of Disabled Kids And Adults

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,437 People

    There's a kid at my school,

    I'm not going to use his real name, so I'm gonna call him Jeff. Everyone makes fun of Jeff, because he has a stutter and a mental disability. He's actually really nice and only learned English 4 years ago, he moved from China. Everyone picks on him and I hate it

    In high school, Our friend TJ

    who has Down's Syndrome and graduated with us at age 21, was loved by everyone. I think it was the thing that made me most proud of going to that school, was that every single person in the 1200+ student body and staff treated him like he was made of gold, rightfully so. What I...

    I have the most beautiful niece in the world.

    Her name is Shiloh and she has Down syndrome. But that doesn't define her, in my opinion it is nothing more than a trait of hers. She is truly such a beautiful and wonderful little girl. And an absolute delight to have around. She is almost always happy and smiling and she just...

    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 *******.

    Sitting in carls junior.

    Drinking. Charging phone. See a peer. Less fortunate. Going through his rituals. To lay near flowers. See two guys notice him. One smiles. They leave in a truck. And me fights urges to harm both.

    My step brother Drew is physically

    and mentally disabled. He has the mentality of a 7 year old on good days, but on bad days it's that of 2 or 3 year old. He's my buddy and I have on more than one occasion used my size to intimidate those who look at him with disdain or giggle when he walks by.

    I really hate it when people do that.

    I mean, I don't understand how it's funny. I also don't underhand the point of making fun of someone for those reasons. I find it completely offensive and just down right rude...That person who you're picking on and making fun of is going through an obstacle on their life. They...

    I was friends with a girl

    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...

    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 .

    Hmmm. Hates an awfully strong word.

    But this behaviour is never acceptable. I'm a community support worker. Therefore it's my job too support these people. I'm out in the community often with the individuals I support. I see the judgement, the discomfort, the fear in other people's eyes very clearly when they...

    I was walking in the hallway once

    and this group of guys were making fun of this girl who was disabled, I was so angry and was about to curse at them, but then her friend came and defended her before I could. I was happy because in my head I knew that she had a real friend by her side

    I have a very close family friend

    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.
