WARNING: I vowed to never use harsh language on my blog and have kept that promise. However, I am posting something that was written to me which contains a good deal of offensive language. I completely understand if anyone chooses not to read this. And if you are in the company of children who can read, save reading this until later. (Note: I will not leave this post up for too long because it is just too hurtful for special needs parents. I don't like seeing it and want to put it behind me, way behind me.)
Some of my blog posts are syndicated on a great site: Autisable.com. I have found support, advice, and great information and stories from other parents and individuals on the spectrum.
Today I received an email about a new comment and as I scrolled down to read it I noticed a message I had not seen. Reminder, this is a very offensive comment I hate to even give attention to, but there is a point. I think we should all be aware of this type of repulsive hateful bullshit.
hes a retard, he
will never have a normal life. he will do nothing but shit on him self
and masturbate. do the world a favor and fucking shoot his retarded
ass.. i'm so fucking sick of u liberals, trying to treat this fucking
retard (that can't be taught better then a dog) as their normal.
screwed for life cause i had the honor of going to school with one of
these fucking basterds (one of the teachers son) he would bite, kick,
scream, spit for no reason. he would walk by or he would ask u something
that u have no clue what the fuck he said. and would result in fucking
abuse. and don't get me started on the stright up stalking of girls they
HE IS A FUCKING RETARD... wake up u hopeless sap.
sorry to be the one to say this :( ... but don't give your life up for a failed experiment.
Guess who wrote this? The same person I just talked about in my last post, good old Anonymous. I refer to Anonymous as a he only because I don't want to keep writing s/he.
Understand, I am not upset personally by this comment, but it does bother me...a lot. I have to chuckle at this extreme ignorance and insanity. I do worry about my son coming into contact with people who feel this way during his lifetime, which makes me want to homeschool him and shelter him forever. Let alone thinking about the future when I am not around. It got me to wonder about a few things and I would love some input.
Are there people who truly think this way?
Where did we as a nation go wrong with this undividual? Was it his parents, teachers, friends?
What can I do to make sure people don't grow up with disturbed minds like this?
Does he know my son? Cause it sure sounds like he does?
And how does he know I am a hopeless sap? Has he seen me cry at the Folger's commercial where the son comes home for Christmas?
Since he is anonymous, we can't send him any direct messages, but if you'd like to reply in case he comes back to see the train wreck, go here: http://www.autisable.com/730307137/warning---i-am-upset---i-hate-autism/?page=1&jump=1520316762&leftcmt=1#1520316762. I did contact Autisable, so the comment may be taken down.
The good news is, we have already made it passed my son shitting on himself, so the experiment hasn't completely failed...
