skinink: This helps no one? It also doesn't hurt anyone. It's a nice gesture that makes a great memory for that girl.
Tourney3p0: Good for her and all, but how is she a hero? Did she overcome adversity and pull a family from a burning building or something?
frepnog: 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??"
frepnog: Riff-Raff: But being retarded and not letting other retards bring you down to their level does make you a hero.does she have the capability to understand that?
Coco LaFemme: For the record, I'm not saying anything bad happened here. I'm glad that she's as loved and respected by her classmates as she is. I just think the "Spiffy" tag was better-suited to this story than the "Hero" tag.
frepnog: on the one hand, cool for giving a person a nice nite.on the other...STOP DOING THIS shiat. IT HELPS NO ONE.
tetsoushima: Somebody else said the same thing up thread. I asked them what would have been a better outcome in this situation, which they never got back to me on. Since you're here now, maybe you can answer. What would you have preferred to have happened here?
MemeSlave: Being retarded doesn't make you a hero.
Astorix: mafiageek1980: I know this is fark and all, but some of yall are being real assholes about this. Just saying.More than usual.
GrahamManning: Let's elect her president next
Riff-Raff: She overcomes adversity every day of her life and has absolutely no guile, deceipt, hatred, or bitterness in her personality.
Primerpony: skinink: This helps no one? It also doesn't hurt anyone. It's a nice gesture that makes a great memory for that girl....and black people should be hired because they're black, Mexicans should be allowed citizenship because their country sucks and the poor should be given money and food because they're lazy!Yay for 'Murka!!!
