Hey you, cashier at the department store, yes you.
You know the new mum with the diagnosis of Down syndrome for her baby? Yeah her.
She doesn’t want to hear about your negative encounters with people with disabilities, particularly Down syndrome.
Or how you once had a conversation with a lady about how she couldn’t understand why people would interact with the ‘r’ word or how they “have no future” or that they are “disgusting.”
Did you think this story would make a mother feel at ease?
Did you think it would make her excited for her child’s future and the bullying you so openly find appropriate?
