But then why are we not kinder to them as they age? Do we not like ourselves?

who is this we you are speaking of? I think the reality is social attitudes in Ireland are much more complex than your generalisations. It seems like you are projecting your assumptions and generalsiations onto the entire populace and thats absurd to be honest.

I work with adults with Intellectual disabilities

In my day to day experience I find quite a lot of your generalisations frankly untrue. Of course I would find bad attitudes but not to the extent you suggest.

Our patience disappears with adults with special needs
Does it? I work everyday with adults who have jobs, friends, skills, relationships, abilities, interests. I see patient people in the world around them daily - of course it also depends where people have responsive behaviour this can be difficult

Why doe we reject adults with special needs
I'm not sure what this is getting at - reject them from what? family, friendships, public transport, employment, education? and what do you mean by we? All Irish people? The worlds general populace?

the people who questioned you turn a blind eye to people excluding adults with special needs all around us.
Again what is your evidence for this?

I apologise for telling you to fuck off earlier. I assumed that you didn't really want this discussion at all. I mean you ignored my genuine initial questions. I was pissed off at my genuine questions being turned against me in an accusatory and dismissive manner to be honest. The manner of your communication here to date has been to generalise, assume, project and accuse. Perhaps you want to have a real discussion on Irish attitudes to disability. If you do then please stop making generalisations and assumptions and projections and accuations.

Maybe you really do want a genuine discussion - perhaps there is some merit in what you are saying but I do honestly think the picture is much more complex

I read it like this

A You assumed people with downs can't cycle
B You assumed his mother pushed him into it
C You have completely overlooked his abilities or interests and seen the Downs syndrome as him.

I just saw the first message now and didn't bother re-correcting my auto-correct. Any more bullshit insight?

PatroniSing because "wow isn't it great that any a Down syndrome kid is riding a bike"... Erm that?

He just means it's great to see the kid out and about like the average kid. In other countries, they're hidden away.

Doesn't sound like that:
"Congratulations too that Mother who never gave up on her Son"
