I hate you people...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I hate you people who stare at my son like he is some kind of freak. I hate you people who point at him and call him a retard. Just because he doesn't comprehend that word, you think it's okay? Do you feel like a big person for calling a fourteen year old that? Does it make you feel good?  You think it's okay to laugh at him? It's not. He has a right to be in the park, same as your kid. He loves to swing. You don't have to make fun of him for that. You are a bully, and I feel sorry for you, and your child alike. You are narrow-minded people. My son is a wonderful boy. True, he can not communicate. True, he has meltdowns and gets violent at times. It's not for no reason at all. The music is too loud, there's too many people, he can't stand the color black. Nonetheless, he is NOT a retard. And he still wants to be your friend. Instead of using his words, he uses actions. He's not that different and you shouldn't make us feel bad for wanting him to be somewhat normal. But mostly, I hate you because you will never know what it is like to have a child who is not normal. And I hate myself for hating you.

I'm sorry this is the case for your son and your family. I would be very angry at people also if they treated any of my children that way.

OMG. I got choked up on this one. You are so right, but kids don't understand and can be so cruel. I'm so sorry you and your son have to go through more shit than anyone deserves. ((Hugs))

I'm 28 and I still really enjoy swinging on swings. That activity knows no age limit.

I was like your son until I was 14. I got called many names, smacked by adults, called names by them. It is out of hand.
