Severe Downs? Down syndrome is one chromosome missing. It doesnt get Worse ir better. just downsyndrome.

81- hmmm... I always thought people called them that bacause they are RETARDED MENTALLY, but now that you say it, I see it obviously must have some horrible underlying context heavily insulting all who are mentally impaired.

101- it's "mentally retarded" not "retarded mentally". And retard is an offensive term just like saying any other racial slur..just saying

Reply

actually 114 retard means "to slow" and can be used in other terms regarding physical capabilities as well, depending on where 101 is from "retarded mentally" may be the correct term.

@114 - retard isn't a racial slur. Just sayin... And OP, grow up. Waaah, the mentally handicapped boy is staring and taking pictures cuz he thinks you're pretty. He has downs. Get over yourself. Why would you seriously think this is an fml? Yfdi for being a bigot

I'm pretty sure OP would feel uncomfortable if it was ANY guy doing that! I know this down syndrome kid who is sweet, but a little pervert too. he's always trying to grab girls asses, and he tells girls he can have as Manu girls as he wants (he thinks they're all his gf) but they can only be with him. he may be retarded, but that's no excuse to be a perv and take pics, the parents can teach him not to

your an asshole just cause someones mentally handicapped does not make them funny or retarded. you should look up down syndrome not all who have it are mentally retarded. there are different severities of it some are just alittle slow and others are severly disabled. You and op are both fucking morons and should research stuff before you post

66- Down Syndrome is caused by an extra of all or part of the 21st chromosome, no a missing one. The effects and severity vary greatly among people, depending on genetic history, how much of the extra chromosome there is, and pure luck. OP, unless that kid is affecting your work or doing inappropriate things, just smile and go about your day. If it makes you feel legitimately uncomfortable or keeps your from doing your job, talk to the parents and explain that to them. If they're reasonable p

actually a person can have severe down. the severity of the syndrome depends on which chromosome is missing

if a stranger was coming to your job and staring at you for several hours a day, whether they had a chromosomal disorder or not you would probably be frustrated and creeped out after awhile. and the OP has a right to feel comfortable in her work place.

26 is an idiot. anyways yea it really sucks for you. but at least the kid made a bit of progress doing something. too bad its being a creeper

8, 19, and 79 - it doesn't matter if he's sweet. if he's making her uncomfortable at her place of employment it needs to stop. if he's not there for a business transaction he's loitering at any rate.

Because he isn't buying anything and is making her uncomfortable. The fact that his parents are there mean nothing - just that they need to do something, but refuse to.

Reply

It has apparently happened many times, if they aren't there for a transaction of business it is technically loitering. And if his parents are there only to allow their child to stare at the woman, they are loitering as well. Loitering can be charged to adolescents and adults.

79- I think both Down Syndrome and Down's Syndrome are acceptable, but Down's is used primarily in the UK. You could also just avoid the confusion by getting all fancy and calling it trisomy 21 =P.

I'm not sure she's really being bitchy. She didn't act negatively towards him at all (yet, anyway) It's totally understandable that she's uncomfortable. That said, I'm not sure which to pick either, I think it might be moot.

i beleve op just feel it is very uncomfertable to e taken pictures of by a stranger at work. it is kinda respectless of the parents, not even asking if it is ok. i would feel the same unless they actually asked first.

if it were a person with a fully functioning brain taking pictures of her and following her around, they would get a restraining order and she would be congratulated for being brave and facing a dangerous person.

Reply

I agree with #67, it doesn't matter who it is, if someone is following me and taking lots of pictures, I'd be freaked out too.

Reply

if you are mentally handicapped you should be aware of how offensive the word retarded is. furthermore I don't understand how you being mentally challenged makes this situation "okay" for this person, could you explain that, please?

Reply

hey, I appreciate your advocacy, but I think retarded is a perfectly fine word if it's intent is to not be offensive. In the past, retarded was the accepted vernacular while moron was the offensive term. Now retarded is the offensive term and mentally handicapped is correct. in a decade, mentally handicapped will be offensive and there will be a new word. this happens all the time. for example, Nigger>Negro>black>African american>???

Reply

58, you have a good point, but since the word retarded, in this point in time, is offensive and hurts people's feelings, it just seems best to use a more politically correct term such as mentally handicapped.

Reply

Excuse me, I'm really sorry my friend was on my account just now and she was upset because her sister is mentally handicapped. I agree with your reasoning and apologize for her rash-ness(if that's a word). lol

Reply

im sorry If I made it seem like I thought using the word Nigger is ok. my point is that in the past it was acceptable, then Negro was acceptable, then black was acceptable, and now African American is acceptable. the "politically correct" term today will be the offensive one in a generation or two. people should stop taking offense to someone's word choice, and start taking offense to their intentions.
