"Will Anyone Sleep with My Down's Syndrome Son?"

Posted by on Mon, Mar 16, 2009 at 4:34 PM

From the always-classy Daily Mail (all punctuation sic—WTF, Daily Mail?):

A mother is appealing for women to volunteer to have sex with her 21-year-old son who has Down's Syndrome.

Lucy Baxter says her adopted son Otto is keen to have his first sexual experience - and she is considering paying a prostitute to provide the service.

'Why should these people be kept separate and pigeon-holed when they have the same emotions, desires and feelings as so called 'normal' people.

'He has the same expectations as everybody else. If he doesn't get a girlfriend, I will feel really bad, because I have sold him this thing that he is like everybody else.

And she said she would love to be a grandmother one day.

'I would like to see him with a girlfriend. I would prefer to see him with a girlfriend who doesn't have Downs.

'I would also love it if Otto got a girlfriend pregnant. It's another experience everyone else goes through so why not him?

'The chances of him having a baby with Down's Syndrome are no more than anyone else but I know if he did get someone pregnant, everyone would have an opinion on it.'

My shoes hurt!

Men with down's syndrome can't reproduce. Only woman can, and the chances of that girl with down's syndrome baring a child with the same mutation, are 50%. The doctor should've told you this. I'm 18 and I know this, so how is it possible that you don't?
