I’ve seen a lot of dumb parent outrage on the Internet machine, but this one out of New Bedford takes the cake.
Stop the ride, I wanna get off.
It’s a satirical end of the year, light hearted “award” that teachers, who clearly care about their students, give to them as a joke. Like when teachers called you the absent minded professor if you forgot your homework. It’s a joke. Remember when jokes were still a thing? Before we let every whiny poon on the Internet complain about how outraged they are over every perceived slight that comes their way?
You tried putting my son down you know what you are putting yourself’s down.
This person reproduced. God help us.
My son is not the one lost in the crowd you are.
It was a FREAKING joke!
I am a very proud mom of having a son with autism and he is doing a very good job in school even though he struggles a lot.
The next clam who uses their kids autism to go viral on Facebook is getting cunt-punched. You want your crotch fruit to feel included? Don’t freak out over a satirical award that other kids also received, but whose parents didn’t cry about it on Facebook.
You 5 that signed this you are should not even be teaching. Your discrimination to my son will not stay like this. I will go wherever I have to and do whatever I have to so you can eat your words.
You wanna know what discrimination would’ve looked like? Them singling your kid out as the only one who didn’t get a gag gift award because he’s too stupid to understand the nuance. Instead they included him because they’re not terrible, joyless twats like you.
The only one embarrassed here is you, not only for your inability to understand what this piece of paper actually meant, but for your complete and utter desecration of the English language.
I prayed to the Gods of sanity when I saw the number of comments that most people would point this out to her. But silly me, I completely forgot how dumb and humorless the Internet has become.
Another buzzqueef chimed in about how offended she was about the award her poon polyp got.
“Most likely NOT to be able to find a paper in his over stuffed binder.”
Get it? Because Nick has lots of papers in his binder. His teachers who see him every day notice that, just like they probably have for thousands of other disorganized middle school boys. God forbid someone make light of this at the end of the school year.
Internet, I’m really disappointed with you. I thought you were better than that, and that we could hopefully sit this one out. But instead you ruined everything and you made me write this blog at midnight on a Friday. Be better Internet.
P.S. Get a job and instead of pawning your kids shit and peddling your garbage on Facebook.

Are you all really that inhumane? Would you be OK with a teacher who gives a student with cancer an award that says, “most likely to die early?“
Sometimes I find myself laughing pretty hard at those “bad news doctor” memes; so I wouldn’t necessarily be one to call it inhumane. Maybe ill-advised or inappropriate. It can be a coping mechanism for some people. I’ve also read that it’s the ones around cancer patients that tend to take the most offense when someone attempts to lighten an otherwise difficult moment with gallows humor.
If this was a joke between him and his teachers over something that really happened, her not getting the joke herself says more about her than it does about her him or his teachers.
Her losing it about this on *Facebook* alone over her concerns with her sons school is not going to help any of his teachers trust her to work *with* them in the future.
He’s on his way to high school with a tendency to “get lost in a crowd.” He needs her to start teaching him how to handle the crowd, not just make it bigger with her momma bear bullshit.
“says more about her than it does about her him or his teachers.” I’m sorry-I meant to say “says more about her than it does about him or his teachers.”
Are you all really that inhumane? Would you be OK with a teacher who gives a student with cancer an award that says, “most likely to die early?“
You all get upset and rant over other peoples ignorance. Yet you honestly think that laughing at an autistic child who was reinforced negatively by his teacher is a good thing? Both of the teacher’s actions and your responses are fucking despicable frankly.
You all need to get some education around autism and related issues. Because you clearly clearly are deeply fucking ignorant, much like the assholes you are constantly posting about on this page.
What’s the word? Oh yes! Hypocrite!
Autism = cancer? That’s quite a reach, dumbass.
And nobody is laughing at rhe kid. We’re laughing (and eye rolling and making fun of) the kid’s douchebag mother.
What’s that phrase? Oh yes! Reading is Fundamental!! Take that and a comprehension class and shove it up your humorless ass, twatbag.
Dearest mental midget. If you’re not able to understand the analogy*, you’re the one that needs the reeducation.
* you may want to look up this word so you know what it means.
Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, you dumb fucktard. You don’t have to explain what an analogy is; your analogy was ridiculously piss poor and as dramatic as you. Therefore, it came across as dumb and dramatic as you are.
BTW, completely incorrect use of a footnote for your word of the day, analogy (obviously you got that calendar for a Christmas gift and haven’t quite grasped word usage). You also don’t know how to set up footnotes when you’re using them incorrectly, you living abortion.
Now run along. Your pimp is calling you
This douchbitch cunt Mom got this on channel 7 news last night. STFU and die already. It’s done and over.
Stop your crying.
I am a father of an autistic junior high school girl. I’m originally from Mass, but live in overseas. I like to check in at Turtleboy from time to time, I like most of the stories, but not this one.
To the person who wrote this…
“My kid has “autism”! My life is harder than everyone else’s! Give me free stuff!! I’m another victim!!”
I agree on the last part of your statement about being a victim, and give me free stuff, but raising an autistic child can certainly be much harder than raising a neurotypical child.
My daughter is smart, bilingual and does well in school. Most people wouldn’t realize that she is autistic at first glance. Many people would say she is high functioning autistic, but on bad days for her, functioning normally is impossible.
But the stress and anxiety can really get to her at the start and end of the day. It alters her life that makes it hard for her to do things that we all take for granted.
How many hours in a day do you spend asking your child to get out of bed, come to the dinner table, get out of the bath tub or get out of the toilet? My daughter can easily spend over two hours in the toilet room or the shower room. Getting my daughter off to school in the morning is a full time job, and there are many days that she wants to take school off in the morning. It is impossible for my wife to work full time and be there during the day when my daughter needs it.
Most people wouldn’t make fun of kids with cancer, why is it OK to make fun of kids with autism?
How would a parent of a cancer victim feel if their child won this “award” — Most likely not to buy a comb.
That teacher would be fired…
Those teachers who signed his award should do some self-reflecting.
People are fukn ridiculous these days. I remember in school getting awards like this. I remember also in yearbooks under your picture it would say things like this. You people get so butt hurt over the stupidest shit. As far as the my kid with autism bullsh*t.. Its old. Half of these kids that “have autism” don’t have fukn autism. You parents make your kids disabled and stupid for some sympathy and a check every month. Its sickening how many kids I see that “have autism” that are perfectly fine, get straight As, play videogames all day, do everything fine, but because they wear glasses, having a missing tooth, can’t hear out of one ear or something stupid you parents scream autism. Gtfoh. Stop sheltering your children let them be fukn kids and stop looking for attention and pity from the world. You people are fukd. When I was a kid growing up it was so different and I’m only 30. Lighten the fuk up you wack jobs
If my school had this it would have been:
Most Likely To Be Decapitated By A Ceiling Fan.
(I had a general comment that got zapped by a glitch. I’m not retyping it.)
I see both sides this issue.
Mom is upset because she feels the award they gave her son makes it seem like the teachers are picking on the boy. I think the fact that got missed in all this is that her son previously did got lost in a crowd somewhere.
The teachers, probably very aware of the needs and mental capacity of this young boy, were careful as to what “gag award” they gave him. I am sure it not malicious in nature but rather simply a light-hearted jab that was something the boy could relate to.
It seems like every child got one of these awards and this was the teachers attempt to make every child feel included.
Just my opinion.
The fact that he previously got lost is something that shouldn’t be mocked or made light of. That would worry any decent parent sick. And it also puts the kid unprotected in a strange environment where any predator could just snatch them.
Most of these fucking parents whose kids have “autism” are just lazy fucks who let their kids run fucking wild and undisciplined for that SSI check (federal welfare, as opposed to SSDI, disability that can only be collected by people who have worked a certain amount of years). When welfare cut the limit to two years, everyone jumped over to SSA to sign their spawn up for “crazy checks.”
“My child is on the spectrum.” Fuck you, you lazy, humorless victim
I made jokes about retards bowling in the special olympics and the libturd fake news media ate it up. Whats the problem with this typical white person.
This bitch is clearly retarded so I’m sure her family wasn’t the least bit surprised when her kid came out with a couple extra chromosomes
Extra chromosomes? How fucking ignorant are you? Get your disorders and disabilities right before you jump into the conversation idiot.
maybe this dumb cunt shouldn’t have had her child shot up with 60 dozens if not hundreds of faxes before she for fucking 3.
read the fucking inserts. they say it can cause autism, death, severe development disorders. reading the inserts is like replaying the fucking exorcist in your mind.
I’m in on the middle of the road of this but the inserts should be presented before any injection happens… even like an injection for a 40 year old.
There are NO links between vaccines and autism.
I’d provide a link to the boatloads of peer-reviewed scientific evidence and meta-analyses that prove this is the case, but you’re clearly an illiterate moron that believes tall internet tales, so I’m clearly wasting my time.
Now, off you fuck.
Ever hear of Home Schooling?
The public shouldn’t have to pay for your lifestyle choices and genetic infirmities.
Your kid is a mess because you are a mess. You’re home anyway.
Isn’t like you work.
Dear Karen Kilpatrick….
Thank you for your long incoherent senta-graph posting telling us how hot you are at 71, and how you got 4,00 in nursing school.
I can now tell every retarded person I know they don’t have to be a bagger at Stop & Shop… they can probably become a nurse.
Of course this blog brings out all of indignant parents of autistic kids, because why wouldn’t it?
All of you who are on here pissing and moaning about “my child this, my child that” and “you couldn’t handle such and such” are the reason people are sick of hearing about this stuff.
You’re not special. Your child(ren) may have disabilities (like mine do), but YOU’RE NOT SPECIAL. Get over yourselves.
Is Facebook the place where all the illiterates hang out?
As a teacher…………this Dickalotapus should realize that any fun classes have light hearted, funny inside jokes. I would bet my license that the kid thought it was funny.
You would be wrong, and teachers like you are why we are the laughing stock of the world educationally. I wish you would bet your “license” – one less brainless twat on the government rolls.
You seem like a delight. Come do what we do for a day, you wouldn’t last fucking 10 min. Give me your address so I can send you your $0.10 of my “government roll”.
As a 5’6 Irish white guy i’m Surprised and ashamed that no one has called out the constant dismissal of short dudes in society as a whole on a regular basis by basically all of humanity! Please someone begin this part of outrage culture so I can possibly get some free shit or maybe some sympathy from a tall smoke out there! Short guys love long legs too ya know ladies! I would also like to use being short as a way to get away with shit, like “oh you wouldn’t ask me that if I was tall!” Or “how dare you assume that just because I’m short!” Also if I recognize as being 6’1 does everyone just have to pretend I am? That would be sweet also.
I am appalled to read that educators belittled a young student for having an overstuffed binder. You can bet your bottom dollar I will be contacting the Mass Department of Education for Censure and Training on this one.
Good thing it wasn’t a binder full of woman you cunt !
You sir, are a cad and a charlatan!
It’s “lucky” that this child was white!….
As a person who reads Turtleboy and occasionally comments on the articles, I am outraged at the all the vapid cunts that start their diatribes with the phrase “As a …,” to try and qualify their useless anecdote.
Are there any cunts whom are not vapid? lol
Where is the father of your child little miss perfect?
Oh right – long gone. Your fault either way. Either you have shit taste in men, you spread your legs on the first date, or you’re so nasty to be around he’s gone.
You’re fault in any scenario.
Here is a thought for the mother who was upset about the award he child received for not being able to find stuff due to a over stuffed binder, seems to me that award should have had your name on it. Your mom to this autistic child, isn’t it YOUR job to take his papers out of his binder and make sure they are neat? I mean this child has autism right. Just another excuse to bitch.
She wouldn’t know a good time if she were sitting on its face. Not that it would let her.
Just another excuse to start a giving me scam…
What did one retard say to the other?
DER DUH BLEH BLUH DEH
People need to lighten up. Mocking tards is fun as hell.
Omg we did this in middle school and high school yearbooks. And loved every second of it!
Stupid bitches need to STOP using their children and especially ones with a disability, as a way to grab attention! She sat in a car to take a picture of this but can’t get her lazy ass out of the car to confront the teachers first?! God help these fucking people!
Get over yourself and learn that just because you walk thru life with a stick up your ass and use autism as a excuse for EVERYTHING you are no different or any more special than anyone else. Would it have been better if they didn’t give an award to him at all? Nope, cause you would be bitching that he didn’t get one. Your that mom that people see and say here we go, it’s here. your kid screams and moans and disrupts everyone else but it’s all good, cause he has autism, so you smile and laugh while he annoys the living shit out of everyone, and just think the rest of the world has to smile with you and just put up with it. We all have to listen to you complain about this and that, and if anyone has anything to say in return it’s HE HAS AUTISM. If you stayed off drugs when you were pregnant maybe that wouldn’t be a issue today. You should be thankful for everything you have and get since you use his autism as your excuse for everything. You live in New Bedford.. That was a cute award. If it said most likely to shit himself, I could see you being upset. But this was just another excuse to call attention to yourself. Stop! Just stop cause it’s really getting old. Maybe you should put your special boy in a special school. You would never do that though because you would have so much less to bitch about and how would you spend your time. Your that incredible mother on Fakebook hahaha!!! And in reality your a nightmare that nobody can stomach and you are far from what you portray yourself to be. You profile pic for example, that’s not what you look like. That’s what you look like with 100 different photo filters. Your a miserable person. Stop using your child to get thru life.
And the “Most likely to get the most thumbs up for speaking the truth” award goes to…. HEATHER!
Couldn’t have said it better myself!
I generally agree, but I’d also award Heather the award “Most Likely In Need Of Remedial Contraction Education” for over-using “your” instead of “you’re.”
THANK YOU!!! If you want ignorance you need look no further than the comments on this page. It’s basic grammar people. You profess to speak English fluently and yet you’re unable to demonstrate it. Learn your fucking language.
Only second place at the moment.
You got all that insight on this woman from a crappy blog (typical SSTG) and maybe some Fakebook stalking?
Who’s the real fucking retard now?
I got it all my info by knowing the mother personally.
Ha Ha! Heather owned you. What a loser.
I don’t know this woman, but guess what? I’d agree with everything Heather said.
So… you’re a loser.
I have a problem with this as well. Teachers are paid to teach. Not to try their hand at comedy.
Hey South Shore Turtlegirl – Maybe the next time you need help finding something in a store, the employee can help you and then hand you a “Stupid bitch that can’t find something clearly marked” award. How would you like that?
John please empty the giant dump in your pants out. Boo hoo. My poor victim kid, they made fun of him. Waaah I want you all fired. Internet outrage, so hot now .
The teachers all deserve an award for putting up with parents like this everyday.
Ya that makes sense……you’re in the store for 5 minutes which means you should know where everything is. Teachers spend all year with these kids, building relationships as a result. In John’s world teachers should be monotonous drones that only teach……NO COMEDY!! Gee that sounds like fun. Dope.
Unfortunately, society is trending in the wrong direction when it comes to situations like these.
Humorless parents, who are constantly seeking new and inventive ways to claim victim status, are raising children, who will more likely than not, be just like them.
There is no end to this in sight. Those of us who can see a joke, or a glimmer of humor in an otherwise unpleasant situation, are the last of a dying breed.
Have a kid with autism – then see how you’d react to this. I guaranfuckintee you’d have a different opinion of this “joke”. Along with the rest of the moron parade telling a parent to lighten up over this. These “teachers” shouldn’t be anywhere near kids if they are that clueless.
oh fuck off with your #me too bullshit. it was fucking funny and too bad you don’t like it. maybe breed with a stronger gene pool how is that for offensive?
#metoo. LOL. Sorry – go back to Barstool, poseur. It’s not funny – and just because a turd like you needs to feel better about yourself by laughing at someone “beneath” you proves the point. What’s next? Beating the elderly or raping kids? Funny stuff, amirite?
Get some class and humility, and keep your head down – karma’s got a way of getting even with oxygen thieves like you.
Yeah, not offensive. Just juvenile, 7th grade stuff. Pretty weak. Was that when you peaked?
Guessing someone with high-functioning autism probably cleaned your clock or stole your girl some where along the way, or is your boss – and you’ve been waiting years for payback, huh? Sucks to be you. And that pathetic.
Well, since you went there…
I have two special needs sons, and I STILL don’t find what those teachers gave that student to be offensive.
If they had intentionally made fun of his “disability,” it would be a different story. They didn’t. So, keeping it in context, it was harmless fun.
What is it that they say about people assuming?
Can a kid catch autism from the parents? The mom has the writing skills of a brain damaged moron. The poor kid doesn’t stand a chance with that oxygen thief bringing him up.
Her chief defender Karen Kilpatrick seems to be one as well… either that, or she’s caught a terminal case of Sentagraphitis.
JAYCE IS ON THE CASE!!
It was wrong for this parent to vent on social media. Bringing problems to the attention of the teachers should always be first. Give the teachers a chance to explain and perhaps apologize without a public lynching.
Sorry – but IMHO, think this is in poor taste for teachers to do these type of awards for any student. They don’t really serve any kind of purpose for anyone.
“Them singling your kid out as the only one who didn’t get a gag gift award because he’s too stupid to understand the nuance.”
Most on the spectrum are not “stupid or retarded” — in fact, many are extremely intelligent and have high IQ’s. Many do not understand social cues or jokes — but they understand being laughed at and being bullied/picked on.
Autism is NOT caused by alcohol or drug abuse either — already been proven. Just like vaccines are not the cause of autism.
Not taking either side on this one. Teachers are wrong for pointless awards that serve zero purpose. The parent was wrong for social media/public vent and not speaking with teachers first.
No “chance to explain” should be needed. This has been going on for decades and this is the very first time I’ve heard about anyone having a problem with it. A lot of schools do it just so that nobody gets left out when they have class superlatives in the yearbook. It’s like a participation trophy. I can’t believe that people exist who have a problem with it. Fuck every single one of them. Way to help your kid assimilate.
Autism is NOT caused by alcohol or drug abuse either — already been proven.
So what is the cause? As far as I knew they didn’t know what caused it so how can anyone honestly say that drug or alcohol abuse has nothing to do with it. If someone who used drugs or drank while pregnant and delivered a baby who has autism or any other birth defect, It would seem to me that them using these substances had to have caused some damage. If they don’t know what causes it, they can’t rule out anything
And what about the parents that don’t do ANY drugs or drink alcohol?? What’s the cause of their kid on the spectrum?? You said: “they didn’t know what caused it so how can anyone honestly say that drug or alcohol abuse has nothing to do with it.” I guess by your logic, you could say vaccines could be a factor, too??
They don’t know what specifically causes cancer either, nor do they have any one cure. By your logic, drugs and drinking could be a factor for cancer, too??
Majority of the people do not have a true understanding of autism. Don’t get me wrong — I don’t like the parents that abuse the system and want their kid to be super special. Or the ones that want the school system to take care of everything for them. They need to step up and take more responsibility. Their parenting just sucks.
When I was at school, no-one of the 1000 kids had autism. Not one.
Now every fucker has it and uses it as a victim card. It’s just an excuse used by the parents whose kids are just a bit stupid.
Is everyone a fucking victim these days? Does no-one take responsibility for their own actions and failings? Or has everyone just got a fucking excuse so nothing is EVER their fault.
Society is fucked.
Same. Weren’t any retards either.
Apart from you? 🙂
Come take care of my son, bitch. You wouldn’t last an hour. Thank whomever you may pray to that you don’t have to deal with the issues that come with having an autistic child. No question there are parents that try to game the system for their bratty kids, and it sounds like you’d be one of them.
When you’re the low IQ moron – it’s not surprising you wouldn’t notice the others around you. And then comment on a blog outing yourself.
Waaaah! Waaaah! Waaaah!
My kid has “autism”! My life is harder than everyone else’s! Give me free stuff!! I’m another victim!!
Seriously, stop crying and fuck right off.
“Your discrimination to my son…..”
Discrimination? Bwaaaaaahaaaahaaaa. Dumbass doesn’t even know what it means to be discriminated against. How can you not see that award as a joke?
It’s an endless source of outrage, entertainment and utter ridiculousness. Every day they wake up looking for something inappropriate, something to be pissed at or some bandwagon to jump on. Instead of taking it to the teachers privately, she goes directly to the echo chamber that is facefuck knowing full well it’ll get all the other shitweasels cackling.
LOL fucking autistic RETARD! Downsy crotch fruit bag my groceries you fucking tard.
Quit ripping off everyone’s user names and making regular posters look like assholes. Asshole
Come see me. I’ll hold you down while my son pisses down your throat, then I’ll make you a drooling veg after I crush your skull.
Then SSTG can write a despicable blog mocking YOUR disability.
Win -Win, right?
My son loves putting his cock near guy’s mouths!
How about an award for the parents. Most likely to have a messed up kid because of drug abuse.
Just a thought
