I find children repulsive.
This will come as no shock to anybody, but I just want to remind you of that fact because it ought to put what I am about to do in some perspective.
My cousin has started a company called Child’s Turn. It’s an organization working to create an online community for parents and families of kids who have been diagnosed with disabilities; they’ve just launched a website at childsturn.com to offer, among other things, a list of service providers searchable by location and condition, a discussion forum, a well-written blog, and treacly pictures of smiling children.
My cousin pretends to be an asshole but secretly he’s actually a really nice guy, so if you have or anybody you know has a child in the family with a physical, mental, or emotional disability, take a look at Child’s Turn.
I mean, I’ll loathe a child regardless of whether it’s disabled or able, but I know that not everybody can be as forward-thinking as I. With luck my cousin and his cohorts will create a world in which all children have an equal opportunity to frighten me.
