I'm a Person First
A short rant.
If I hear the words
'she had a Downs';
'He didn't want to date me because I have a Downs child'; (consider yourself lucky, Girlfriend)
'They have a Down's syndrome';
'That Down syndrome girl in...'
one more time I am going to...scream, stand on my head on the busiest road I can find, kick a tree, phone George Bush.
Google Down Syndrome Ireland, they will send you two jpg posters from their 'I'm A Person First' campaign.
Meanwhile, use person-first language.
Or feck off.
