A Blind Girl Was Told She Couldn't Bring Her Walking Cane To School Because People Might Trip Over It
Bristol Post- A blind girl has been banned from bringing her walking cane to school for "health and safety" reasons.
Lily-Grace Hooper, who is seven, suffered a stroke when she was just four days old, which left her virtually blind.
But her school, Hambrook Primary School, has now told the youngster she can no longer use her walking cane, because it could trip up teachers and other pupils at the school.
A risk assessment by Gary Learmonth from Sensory Support Service – done on behalf of the school – said the cane caused a high risk to other people around Lily-Grace, and that she should instead have full adult support "100 per cent" at all times.
But her furious mother, Kristy, is worried her daughter will become to dependent on having someone show her around, and said having a helper following her around will set her daughter apart from the rest of the pupils.
Ladies and gentleman, I regret to inform you that, against the wishes of Robert Downey Jr. in blackface, the world has officially gone 'full retard'. We have pussified society so much that there is no more concern left for the people that actually need it. Treating average, able bodied human beings like idiots has inserted uncertainty into a very delicate dichotomy. We used to treat full functioning people like they were fully functioning people, and handicapped people like they were handicapped people. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way we started pushing healthy, fortunate people into the handicapped category and actual handicapped people were in turn pushed out into the street without their walking stick. We started to lean too hard in the wrong direction and we went ahead and flipped the whole fucking kayak upside down. Now the whole world is just drowning in it's own stupidity.
There is too many people in society to worry about everyone, yet somewhere along the line we decided that everyone was deserving of concern. For some reason, in doing so, we started rationing it at the top of the food chain. We are now serving seconds to the people that just ate, while the less fortunate are starving for our attention. The self-reliant blind girl that just wants to be granted the ability to get around school grounds on her own accord? Fuck that bitch. We can't risk Little Billy's self diagnosed ADHD kicking in while he's walking down the hall. He might trip and scrap his knee, and these kid gloves we are treating our youth with aren't meant to clean up blood. Up is down. Left is right. Black people are wearing skinny jeans. White women are winning Hip Hop Awards. I guess it's only makes sense that the most disabled people have a full mental capacity and complete use of their limbs, because the world has officially gone full retard, and everyone knows you never go full retard...
