they're only going to contribute pointless questions about their kind to online messaging forums, trying to imply they aren't so retarded.

How does one have a "position" on something like this? I mean, what are the options; you can be against being mentally handicapped? Hell, I didn't even realize that there was an issue.

I guess they can contribute to further studies and believe it or not, companionship. To parents, siblings, lovers. It just depends how severe the retardation is. I have some cousins that have some autistic tendancies like not speaking until they are five, but they are very intelligent. They have a minor autism but...autism is autism.

I feel the same about other people's mentally challenged(mc) kids as I do about other people's non-mc kids. They're not my kids. I don't want to support them.

If we were in B&T I'd really have my way with you.

I don't know what they're going to contribute to the "Word" as you put it? But I do know that they can depending on sererity, work in every day jobs the same as non-mentally challenged.

Let me ask you this. What if they are unable to contribute? What then? What do you propose?

I'm good friends with all the mentally challenged in my school, except for one. He really bugs me. They're some of the nicest ppl you'll ever meet and If I ever find someone against them, I will personally beat the shit out of them and leave them for dead in a swamp somewhere.

Retards are fine, unless they look like this:


If they do, they should be added to the pile o'heads in Iraq...

being against mentally retarded people is the worst prejudice anyone can have, you`re not angry enough, you make me sick

some mentally challanged kids don`t feel like being reminded they`re retarded by an idiot(see how similar it is?)

well...

retarted people have a right to be there, but they have shorter lives....so wouldnt it make sense to not educate them if it does no good? the problem is the people around them are living thier lives for them, they cant serve a usefull purpose and cant be educated, but if thier parents want them there, they can be there
