Too bad all she could do was the Sped.

Archae hippy: How jaded are you that you think it's simply not possible that her classmates think she's awesome?


Said this before - when her time at school is done, the amount of people she attended school with that will keep thinking she is awesome will fall to few to none.  I could be wrong - but I am not, and you know it.  They don't think she is "awesome".  They think she is SAD and they make themselves feel good by doing things for her because most people are just not that altruistic - ESPECIALLY middle\high school kids.  Trust me - if it was more acceptable to pull her hair and call her retarded, THAT is what they would be doing - just like it was before the current trend of making the retarded feel "special".  Maybe not be right, but it is what it is, man.  If it was truly selfless - it would never make any headlines, it would just happen.  But no, "LOOKIT US AND HOW NICE WE ARE TO THIS RETARDED GIRL!  AREN'T WE JUST GREAT??"

Which is more important, giving this little girl who by your own admission will have difficulties in the "real world" a happy memory, or these kids being authentically altruistic?  Most people  want to feel good about themselves, its just that high school students are generally more shameless in how they do it.  What would you have preferred to have happened in this situation?

...damn.  You are seriously the single most bitter, cynical person I've ever met.  I especially love the "I could be wrong - but I am not, and you know it."  No, I DON'T know it.  Every single person with Downs that I've ever met has been a happy, friendly person, and the kids with Downs that I went to school with all had huge social circles because people  genuinely liked them.  We weren't friends with them because we pitied them, we were friends with them because we actually enjoyed their company.  And, shockingly, we stayed friends with them after high school was over.

The fact that it made headlines doesn't mean the kids were looking for headlines.  The local papers sent someone to cover homecoming at my high school every year, because the sports section dedicated a page or two every day to local high school sports.  And I was from Portland, Oregon, which is far larger than Frankfort, Indiana.

Your adamant contention that teenagers as a whole are vile creatures completely incapable of even a glimmer of basic human decency or genuine friendship for the disabled says far more about you than it does about the high schoolers in the article.

Does it matter?  She is a human being who does not understand what it means to be malicious or cruel.  She enjoys life to its fullest every day, finding joy in things none of us would notice.  Maybe she's the way humanity is supposed to be and the rest of us who are farking up the planet are all one chromosome shy.

More than usual.

it isn't that.  it is just this - what happens when the next function comes around, and she ISN'T included?  Then she wonders why, after all, I'm Special, they made me princess last time.  And then the next time comes around, and she isn't included and she gets mad.  And then the next time, and the next, and before long you have a bitter little girl that can't understand why people can not recognize her as Special, and before you know it a sweet little girl is transformed into a bitter asshole that hates regular people.


And before you know it, she goes to farmers market with an AR-15 strapped to her back to "make a point".

I finally had to push the ignore button. I guess some people have not an ounce of human decency left in them, so can't possibly see anybody else having any decency in them. I'm glad there have been a few kind hearted posters in here because I was truly worried we were truly in a race to the bottom.

Stories like this let me swell the ranks of my ignore list and my favorites list at the same time. And oddly, after each one, I see fewer and fewer assholes in the comments sections.

Is this social Darwinism, Fark edition?

Dinki: I don't have a problem with them electing her to be a homecoming princess. It may very well be that she is a well liked girl at the school. And after all, home coming princess is not much more than a popularity contest. I do have an issue with some of the other things schools and organizations have done for down kids in attempts to make them 'special'. I'm specifically thinking of the kid that scored a touchdown in a high school game. The condescending attitude of the players, even if they did it with the best of intentions, just makes me feel creepy. While we want to believe that the kid never realized that his 'achievement' was simply a staged event, what if he did? How would you feel if you knew that your proudest moment was just something provided by others out of pity? I think down syndrome kids would be better served by being encouraged to succeed at something, no matter how small,on their own. It may not be as thrilling as a football 'touchdown', but it would be real, and they would be rightfully proud of the achievement.


That's what has me feeling uneasy about so many of these stories too.  TFA was just a popularity contest, but so many of the other similar stories aren't, and surely some of those kids know exactly what's going on.  Seems to me just including kids in the normal population of kids (so, odds are, spectator at the football game, unofficially cheerleading with friends in the stands, going for pizza afterwards etc) is more... genuine.

able-bodied/white guilt is a complex dysfunction.  I always say that my family fought for the north, so black people actually owe me.  Maybe they could shine my shoes?

/Que the hatred to show me that im insensitve.  That makes sense.


thatsthejoke.jpg

These kids voted for her for the same reason white people voted for obama.  It's a cleansing in their minds.  It gives them an out everytime they do something unsavory for the next 2 years.  "But I voted for debby downser!"  Will be their internal coaching every time they think about a stinky homeless person or steal a handicapped spot.

In other words, I CALL SHENANIGANS!!

A few years ago there was a school in Middle Mississippi that did this to a girl with Downs syndrome, and it was all just a big laugh at her expense.

Some high schools need to be burned to the ground with the students and faculty inside.  They are rotten to the core and there doesn't seem to be anyway to fix them.  I'm referring to those schools with multiple suicides each year because of bullying while the teachers and administrators turned a blind eye because deep down they thought it was ok to fark with that gay little heathen.

Then there are schools like this that restores my faith in our young people.  There is hope.

Uh, they perhaps should have made her feel like she belonged every day she went to school.

OTOH I guess it's memorable and a bunch of kids got to feel special because they did something nice.

I can't even remember who was prom queen at my high school.  Yeah, we had prom queens, not princesses but I guess that was before queen meant a gay dude.

It means there is some hope for that school because bullying hasn't become an accepted part of the institution.  Unless voting the special needs kid as prom queen was an elaborate joke.  Then burn baby burn.

Yeah. I tend to feel this way, too. It feels like patronizing mush to me. Is it nice for the girl? Probably, and I guess that's worth something, but it's not genuine. It's a manufactured honor for someone they see as "different but special".

On the other hand, homecoming court is total bullshiat anyway, so whatever. If the preps want to hand the crown to someone to make themselves all feel better, rather than fighting over it themselves, I guess that's a step toward humanity for them.

Pretty much this. While this kind of thing gives people warm and fuzzies, in reality it's done out of pity, or because they want to subtly insult this girl.

I don't know when this "everyone is special" crap started but I do recognize that we have gotten worse as a result of it. If we are all the same then how do you work out the ones who need strict attention and more specialized education?

on the other...

STOP DOING THIS shiat. IT HELPS NO ONE.

It doesn't? you don't think the other students helped the girl have a great evening and feel like she belonged?


This reeks of children improving their behaviour just before Christmas. Afterwards 99.9% of the people who voted for her still won't give her the time of day and the 0.1% already interacted with her. On the scale of good deeds this ranks just above liking an image macro against bullying. But only because this took some actual effort. It would have ranked higher if there was some actual sustained effort, now she belonged but people won't like her better tomorrow.

She'll have her hopes up and feel good now, and then she'll be in for the plunge when she finds out that no, not everyone wants to be her friend. They just voted for her because they wanted to feel good about themselves or because of peer pressure.
