I have a brother with Autism that a lot of people think he's like a goofy orangutan with his orange hair on his head and body. Well, in class a few months back, these girls said that one of the things they wanted to get rid of or cure was 'Mental retardation' and other things relating to it. It made my stomach churn in so many directions, I thought I would stand up and vomit in front of them. I kept my mouth shut though now I wish I didn't.
Why do people think metal retardation is a disease? Why do they think that there is some 'miracle cure' thats going to make it all go away?
My belief on it is this: There is no cure, it's that people just can't accept the fact their brother, sister, classmate, and/or the person up the street is different and imperfect than them so they have to change these innocent kids that don't even know what's going on just so everyone is smart and beautiful.
Eh, screw you to those skinny girls that said it...
