Things People With Down’s Syndrome Are Tired of Hearing

Things People With Down’s Syndrome Are Tired of Hearing


Because you never know what might come out of my mouth (laughter) Like “What is Down’s Syndrome?” Bella’s saying. What makes you angry? Smoking Nigel Farage. You don’t like him? Not in the slightest People with Down’s syndrome can’t have relationships Well obviously they can have relationships Kissing is my favourite pastime Yes I reckon So you’re really romantic? Oh, so romantic I like William Hague, George Osborne and Justin Bieber Not David Cameron though People with Down’s syndrome can’t learn Yeah, alright then Yes they can Maybe sometimes they might need a little bit of a push Umh yep I’ve got qualifications in costumer service, qualifications in hair dressing. I passed all 10 of my GCSE’s. People with Down’s syndrome are just normal people You know “will she be able to do this, will she be able to do that?” I say, “Yeah, she’ll be able to do everything it’s just we’ll take the scenic route” This is our pet hate Adults with Down’s Syndrome are like children Do you ever have people like come up to you and talk to you like you were a child? Yes It’s patronising But some people do the head tilt as well “Bless her, isn’t she lovely. How old is she?” infantilisation, do one Yes Please Some people say it’s a disease, it’s not No Down’s syndrome is a condition which is caused by an extra chromosome It doesn’t stop you from doing anything, does it? Well, exactly We bring something different to the world that other people can’t People sometimes do come out with words like “Down’s syndrome sufferer’ The only thing I suffer from is… Bad attitudes “Those with Down’s syndrome can’t live independently” I hope not Of course they can because I live independently I’m hopefully wanting to live with my boyfriend I wouldn’t mind living somewhere with my girlfriend as well I have a life I got out with friends and having a nightlife as well I’ll get my ensuite back if you move out So you want me to move out today? No “Those with Down’s Syndrome can’t have jobs” Well that’s wrong Of course they can Yeah of course they can Yeah I’ve had so many different jobs I work at a hair salon and I love it I’ve went through retail Office work Went back to retail and then I went back to office work and then media I’m also an actor as well I got a job as an actor and a dancer You’ll be famous one day Tommy Yeah Well Even more One day I might be put in EastEnders You never know But she can be anything she wants to be Unless she wants to play for Liverpool, in which case.. Everton It’s quite upsetting to hear about something like that But it was 90% of people were getting rid of it because they found out they were Down’s syndrome And I thought, “That’s shocking” Some people call Down’s syndrome a serious handicap, but it’s not Babies with Down’s Syndrome can be aborted at 40 weeks I’ve heard of that Whereas a baby without Down’s Syndrome, obviously the cut-off point is 24 weeks so I think there’s an ethical question there We can all lead amazingly active lives, can’t we? Yeah She doesn’t like the testing “Do you wish you didn’t have Down’s Syndrome?” No Why? It’s just me, it’s a part of me I may have Down’s syndrome But without it I don’t think I’d really be me I don’t wish that I wish people would see Down’s syndrome in a positive light My motto in life Is: Down’s syndrome so what?

    I have little cute cousin with down syndrome. And I will be studying English teaching department this year. She is almost 10 months and start to talk little bit. And future I want to teach her nit also our language but also english too. I mean she can be happy to learn it I think. Do you think i can do it? I want to teach it from childhood so that she can learn easier. But must I wait until she talk our language properly?because of Down syndrome highly possibly she learn tallong late. I will help her in that process too. But when should I start to teach second language?

    3:46 Oh she cried😢. my heart hurt. It is very painful because the people will judge people with syndrome as there not people as they are sort of something but that wrong because they are just normal people like us they can do anything like us .I just hope that people will stop being racist

    When I was pregnant in 1998 at age 35, my doctor insisted on my having a test to see if the baby had Down syndrome so I could abort her. I refused and the doctor actually became angry and nearly hostile. He said, "so what if your baby is born with Downs?" I said, "Then I'll raise a baby with Downs. Next question?" Unfortunately, I lost the pregnancy…but I'll never forget that odious man.

    The woman next to the woman with the baby is so high functioning I didn’t know she had Down syndrome until she said she gets patronising remarks

    Yankee here! Most of the people in these interviews sound like they have the same accent. Is it Mancunian? I'd like to get better at differentiating different British accents.

    Everytime Bella came on screen my heart sank. She's so beautiful and adorable. I'm so broody at the moment, I almost cried. I can't wait to have a baby.

    Honestly that 24 weeks for non affected and 40 weeks is for affected people is just wrong but I could understand why a parent would want to get it aborted. I’ve met a fair few people with Down syndrome and they are lots harder to care for and with schooling you need a teacher that will dedicate their time to the child with Down syndrome. Maybe instead of aborting it, we should try to prevent Down syndrome. I also think the “learning curve” is not so much due to their condition but it’s because they have the condition people patronise them and treat as if they can’t learn.

    Did you know that in Norway people in different state jobs can more or less (they try their best) command an x-addict on any drug from doctor or illegal demand that the woman take a abortion before SHE GOES FROM 5 TIL 6 MONTHS PREGNANT!!! So it's OK to kill a baby if it is younger than 5 months and 30 days in the belly!!! And it's a birth NOT abortion!!! I'm not BSing you :'(

    Any person with down syndrom I've ever met seemed to be just like anyone else. The only difference besides the obvious physical trairs that they share is people with DS seem to be very warm and kind hearted. It could be circumstantial but thats been my experience. In fact, i dont think ive ever met a mean person who has DS. Is the warm hearted thing common with people who have DS or is it just a circumstantial thing?

    Where did she fetch those numbers from?
    You can't have legal abortion for a fetus with no known conditions beyond 20wks.

    And "at 40 weeks" baby is full-time, no matter if it has genetical condition or not. Nowhere in developed countries are full-period babies killed in the womb with abortion drugs. That's total bullshit claim…

    Sorry, Im not political correct.
    Just look at them, they are all the same faces. Degenerated.
    It would be better to encourage mothers for an abortion, if they have such damaged fetus.

    Down's Syndrome is a spectrum though, some people are much more disabled, not able to live independently, have significant learning difficulties, a very hard time finding a job and having relationships, etc. Some families are truly not equipped to raise a child with Down's Syndrome since it may turn out that their child is on the more severe side of the spectrum. But this is obviously not true in all cases and people shouldn't make assumptions when they meet or hear about someone with Down's Syndrome.

    What if Downs were actually a species of human that existed long long ago, dying out after breeding with modern man, much like neanderthal man? What if this is their reemergence? Just a thought.
