While we are at it, why dont we grant her a commercial pilots license? And, to be even more nicer to this fine disabled lady, why dont we give her a job as a scientist at a lab where small pox and anthrax are studied? If she were to go to school it would be discriminatory because she cannot pass the classes.

Dude, that's totally awesome! Sounds like a great school with a really accepting and human student body. I wonder what her career plans are....beside kicking cman's ass, of course.

I'm sure they're are thousands of young girls across the country who wish to be prom queen this year. Is the world going to end if she's one of those who, gasp, don't get to win?

She has Down's Syndrome. She isn't 'tarded.

It does, however, sound as if she is indeed leading a really kick-ass life, scrote.

Often Down syndrome is associated with a delay in cognitive ability and physical growth, and a particular set of facial characteristics.[1] The average IQ of young adults with Down syndrome is around 50, compared to normal children with an IQ of 100.

Yeah, that pilot's licence is sounding better and better.

What about the girl with no downs who also dreamed of being prom queen and looked like a shoo in to win until this biatch and her family came long and guilted people in to voting for her?
