People Who Hate When I Make Fun of Retarded People
When I’m with my friends, sometimes I pretend to be a mentally challenged person. I’m not making fun of the person, I’m making fun of the aspect. Most of the time it’s about myself! Then sometimes someone comes up and says something like, “my cousin has Down’s Syndrome. Stop making fun of him!” I agree, Down’s Syndrome is serious, and I do not laugh when I see a person with it—in fact I get angry at the people that do that—but, geez, I’m having fun with my friends, playing a fairly joke on myself, making it funny. Then the moment is killed when we all somber up about the thoughts of people with Down’s Syndrome.
