Special snowflake alert

Stupid that's better late than never.

A few days ago, a post about autism exploded in bad_service.

There's a lot of stupid here, from both the OP and the replies.

The OP insinuates that it's not cool to call an autistic child a "tard", but it's totally cool to call a retarded child that. She also carries around little cards to "inform" people about autism.

People wonder about how good an idea the cards are, while others call her out for the "tard" comment.

One special snowflake named tealizard postulates that autism IS a form of retardation here.. Some say the mother should have had better control of her child, no matter what illness they had and say it's bad parenting to let an autistic child wander around and bother people.

Whatever the case, just a shit-ton of stupid all around.

And, for extra credit, the write-up from c_suck_snark, which further outlines the dumb.

[EDIT] Shit. It's locked. I'm sorry, I didn't realize. I don't think it was when I saw it earlier. I fail. I hang my head in shame and take the macro-ing, in hopes I will not be so stupid again.
