    So what? People with Down's Syndrome shouldn't date, is that the point of your complaint?
    Or that some of them can be demanding? Or that they can be like anyone else?

    That may qualify as the singularly dumbest dumbass question of the day.

    But it's still early.

    I figured it was ran by the Joos like most of our entertainment media.

    Wow. In ONE post you topped your prior contender.

    Your stupidity has no "off" button.

    Family Guy made a valid point. Sarah Palin paints her kid as being so different than all other kids. When in reality, that doesn't help the stigma against those with down syndrome. They aren't that different from other kids.

    Well with the exception of being at higher risk of heart defects/disease in later life, intestinal problems, lung infections, eye and ear problems, leukemia and other cancers, and a life expectancy of 50 years or less for 50% of those born with Downs, you are correct.

    Waaaaaaait a minute....

    So all the OTHER jokes that Family Guy has made over the years, where there's no doubt been insensitivity towards just about every "class" in existence, were ok...

    But when a special needs character is portrayed, it "crosses the line"?

    Chanel, REALLY?? Have you seen most Family Guy episodes? The show crosses the line every week!
