A duh- How very enlightened. CP doesnt equate to retarded, however you apparently have a very long way to go. I am disabled, have an IQ of 43.As someone with 14" biceps from propelling a chair and being informally cross trained in martial, I can tell you that you never know who you are insulting from the disabled world. Be careful. You may find yourself the recipient of on the spot, unanticipated payback! A lot of us are athletes.

She has CP, so technically she isn't retarded.

So I'm confused: Does that mean we can make fun of her? Please?

#14 I want to add my comment to yours......

You have so many lives (chances to succeed) on earth, just like cats, and you lost one of yours with your cruel comment.
