An old college buddy told me about a well built retarded girl that attended Nimitz Junior High School in Odessa, Texas way back in the 80s. That was in the days where retarded was an inoffensive substitute for special needs. He said some of the guys tried to take advantage of her because it would be easier to score with her than a girl who was not stunted mentally.
A few of the guys got away with it in the girl’s bathroom while their friends stood outside stopping other females from entering. They got away with it the whole semester because the special needs girl enjoyed it and never told anybody. The guys liked her bacause she enjoyed performing the “special favors” more than standard intercourse.
I was reminded of his story when I read about the trials of April Ferguson, the mother of a special needs child enrolled at Poulsbo Elementary School in Washington. Kim Watland, another special needs Mom, was shocked that sexual assault had been taking place on the school bus for over 8 months without being reported.
It is sad that boys will be boys and take advantage of the weak knowing that the retarded girls might enjoy it AND not report it! One would have expected the bus driver to take a more active role in stopping this hideous exploitation. Such morally repulsive actions should be punished swiftly and severely.
