What a terrible person. I have a sister who is disabled, not with autism, but with sotos syndrome, which causes developmental delay. I admit, I get impatient with her at times, because I guess I hold her to a higher standard than I should, but I love her all the same. I was raised to accept people of all kinds, disabled or not, so I can't understand the intolerance displayed by this person.

Not surprised. I worked as an Aide in a group home....people were so god d. rude to the ladies! Really, I would get so mad! I dont stare at people because I think theyre ugly (inside and out!), what makes people think its ok to stare at the ladies, or laugh because theyre DIFFERENT?! Youd think it would be just kids, but no, it was adults too! smh. Its like they didnt even realize or care that staring with their faces all twisted up is rude. It was all so frustrating.

Dont wish Karmic intervention on that person, as it will be the child that suffers, dropped off at a group home and brought out only for a mcdonalds bfast on Thanksgiving and returned, not eating with the family because theyre ASHAMED. Or abused instead of cherished, just for being different.

Best "punishment" for this jerk? Everyone knowing who they are, having their face on the news or spread through word of mouth.....most people would at least have the dignity to be embarassed.

I just don't understand how someone who calls them self a mother can be so ignorant, and so mean. The worst part is she is raising ignorant, bratty children who probably bully other kids.

Muppet I can so relate to that. My son when he was younger would have autistic tantrums in the stores. I had numerous people tell me he needed a good wallop as I stood over him and dealt with him in a way that only people who know how to deal with these situations can. I was the director of the autism support group here and had cards from the autism association that could be given to people who made unnecessary comments about it being "bad behavior". I handed a few out myself, quietly to people, probably a better thing than freaking out on them which I felt like doing. I would remain calm get one out of my wallet hand it to them. It had a quick quote on it describing autism and it not being a behavioral problem and that the person who is dealing with the situation knows how to handle the situation they are in, and for more info it gave a website. It has been very trying to be in public sometimes and being judged with ignorance.

Like demon, it doesn't really surprise me. I watched a grown man in broad day light the other day yell horrible things at a lady at a gas station b/c she honked her horn for service - essentially telling her to get her own gas or don't drive. I had actually never seen the sign myself that said something to the effect of honk if you need assistance (handicapped). Sadly, there is one in every crowd.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
