I'd like to say something. There's a deviant out there, who's name I will mercifully not mention, who thinks that people with disabilities are quote on quote "losers".  Boy do I have news for him!

I have autism, so I guess that makes me a "loser". Correct?

Well, I'd like to let him and all the other haters know just what this "loser" has accomplished...

*This "loser" has been in a quiz bowl.
*This "loser" placed 5th out of 24 places in a championship spelling bee locally.
*This "loser" almost skipped eighth grade.
* This "loser" won first place in a poetry contest this year.
*This "loser" had art in an art show locally this year.

I'm Halie Everhart, and I'm proud to be a "loser". Real proud.

I'm just horrified that people still think things like that about people with disabilities. (Though after living with epilepsy for 5 years, sadly I am not surprised at people's ignorance.) Always be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished! You will show them all up someday, trust me.

Hey wasnt it declared that those with disabilities are now being called "differently abled?"

You are not losers you are differently abled. Im happy to those who see that themselves as being as differently abled as a strength.

Nice job :3

*shakes head* people are jerks... I have Rheumatoid arthritis for almost five years, I am considered disabled by the state of California, I have a handicap plaque and everything... 

I was in a wheel chair, I needed physical therapy, I couldn't make it in a school a lot when I first had it (home schooled now), I couldn't run or dance, it hurt to draw let alone write or get from my bed five feet to the bathroom. It was had for me to learn just because I was constantly sick because my medication lowers my immune system, and made me sleepy, hungry, and cranky. Yet I made it through every class with an A+ in every subject.

People discount other people who're disabled because they can't be as physical as 'normal people' I pry ranted but it makes me so damn mad at the jerks in the world. Brains and artistic ability is good enough and thanks for posting this so others can see and be aware. You're freaking smart and good for you for defending yourself! You have no rights being a called a loser.

This is great. I hate when people say things like that. Autistic people are very creative and smart, but some people only see what's on the outside.

Hey I have  autism as well, more specifically I have a out of date class called Asperger's Syndrome.

It is a high functioning form of autism. Most people take use for..well unsocial freaks, what most people don't know is we are smart; in fact most kids diagnosed with autism have a special talent or ability substituting for our lack of communication.

For instance my friend Jerome is a musical genius, and guess what has Autism, Sam has an amazing understanding of mathematical, and geometrical understanding.

So us "losers" are probably better than the loser who thinks lightly of us disabled people.

One who looks down on others is more of a loser then any other kind of person in the world.

Good job standing up and defending those who can't, or won't defend themselves. 
Keep being awesome. :icongreatjobplz:

Writing this journal was the best thing you could do!
I think it can be very encouraging for people who have any disability and are not as strong as you are..

If the person you mentioned cannot understand that people with disabilites are human beings with feelings, great ideas, dreams and talent just like all the others, then HE is the real loser.
