My husbands uncle called my DD retarded?

She has Aspergers and as anyone who knows about this disease they do not liek change. My husbands uncle and aunt are visiting from Scotland. We were suppose to go to a mexican resturant down the road but decided not to at the last minute because my husbands aunt didnt want to. We tried to explain it to my daughter but she of course threw a tantrum in front of everyone. My husband uncle laughed and said just because your retarded doesnt mean you have to act crazy, she needs discipline and shouldnt be coddled. The part that really made me angry was well all of it but calling her retarded made me want to smack him in the face. I mean he acted like it was no big deal to call a 9 year old retarded. The worst part my DH blew it off like it was no big deal. I mean seriously who should i be the maddest at the inconsiderate uncle or the dad that wont protect his defenseless daughter.

If it wasnt for the fact he was leaving tomorrow I would probably kick him out.

I would have told him, "just because you're an asshole, doesn't mean you have to act like one." Then I would have looked at my husband and said "being an asshole must run in your family". Since he didn't stick up for dd.

You have no idea what aspergers is if you truly believe that.
