When he leaves for the recording studio, Dennis informs Dee that her boyfriend—real name Kevin Gallagher—is retarded.He remembers Kevin attended special needs classes in elementary school. Now, with Dee on a mission to prove her brother wrong, Mac has a pitch for the gang.He was easing me into the fact that what I make are decisions.Each day you decide whether to get out of bed or go back to sleep. The term “paralysis by analysis” is one of my favorites.There is absolutely nothing inspiring about this post.In fact, for mothers with really severe situations, this is borderline shaming. People of all kinds of disabilities, challenges have found beautiful love and romance. Here is where I’m having trouble understanding: Could you find, say, three hours per week, or every two weeks, to go on a date?Dennis protests and reminds all of them that there isn't a single person in the pub with any musical ability whatsoever.Frank, however, is quick to point out that nobody needs musical ability to make it as rock stars in the current world.
PM on a Wednesday Dee introduces The Gang to her new boyfriend—an up-and-coming rapper named Lil' Kevin.Stick to writing about subjects you know something about – or at the very least, properly research your topics. You have made a very vulnerable subset of single mothers feel even worse. After all, I don’t have a special needs child, and my knowledge of the subject is from the periphery. I say the following with zero shaming, but simply sharing what I wonder: Objectively, we put a man on the moon. Could one of those dates lead to love, companionship, a lover with a man whose life fits yours in a way that satisfies you both? No one in my life has ever loved or respected me the way he does.You should remove this horribly inaccurate and insensitive post. This post may reflect possibilities for the less severe special needs situations, but it’s actually offensive to minimize the situations you clearly know nothing about. I asked this poster for more information about her situation, and why romance, sex and love is out of the question. Does romance have to mean full-time, traditional marriage- or something that works for both parties? I didn’t know who I really was until he was in my life. I am truly lucky and privileged to have him as my son.Which is exactly why I opened an email sent by the brilliant business mind, Seth Godin, with the same exact subject line.Seth, as you may imagine, was not asking me for my salary.
They need to start their own band, because if a retard can do it and get laid, they certainly should be able to!
