ok NOT an aibu, but this is where it will be seen the most and it NEEDS awareness.

quite frankly, i along with others am appalled at the comments that are being made and left to stand, toward the SN community, they are downright offensive and quite simply appalling.

i am sure (or hope) that the majority on here do NOT agree with them but yet the SN community on mn are not being supported, whether this is because people do not know what to say, or they havent seen these posts i do not know?

BUT IT IS ABOUT TIME THAT THINGS CHANGED, so this a thread where you can stand up and be counted and say that you do not agree with the disregard, blatant trolling and offensive behaviour towards our lovely mn who have or are dealing with sn in their family.

they need this place for support, not the vile behaviour that they are getting.

so please post here and show your support and help make a change for the better.

all it takes is a smile next to your name to show you agree smile

I will stand to be counted as at 38 I have just been identified as having a form of mild learning difficulty, there is a strong possibility both my children will have it as well. I think those parents who manage this on a daily basis should be supported here on MN.

Stood up and awaiting being counted! smile

It's nice to see all the posters who agree, but isn't that like preaching to the converted?

It's the posters who are saying this crap who are the ones that need a kick up the jacksy challenging.

I have absolutely no idea what these comments consist of as I do not routinely check the SN section.

Can we have a link?

Would be nice if people stood up on the threads where they see anti-SN bullshit too though. And sadly MNHQ seem to be sitting down at the moment.

Actually would be even nicer if there was no need for this thread too although I do appreciate the meaning behind it.

Is asking people to 'stand up and be counted' not in itself discriminatory and therefore offensive towards those of us with special needs who cannot stand up?

It isn't on the sn section psammed.
The sn section seems to be much safer.
A lot in aibu, some in threads around benefits. All over the place.
