Person With a Developmental "Dis"-ability With Attitude!
Such a person has a DD, and ain't afraid to show it!
A PWDDWA is a self advocate, and KICKS BUTT, more butt than any "typically"-abled person (PWOD), as they crusade for the right to do everything you 'normals' do and to be accepted for it.
PWDDWAs don't hold themselves back and aren't afraid to get married --even to, *gasp*, NORMAL people-- to drink alcohol if they please, rear children, and listen to metal music. A PWDDWA practices self-determination and makes as their own lifestyle choices, not limiting themself. A PWDDWA stick up for their DD family when someone starts "retard-bashing" and downtalking PWDDs. And YES, a heckuvalottta PWDDWAs ride SHORTBUSES!! And are PROUD of it!
PWDDWAs are not afraid to be just who they are and like it that way--so the 'normal' world can just DEAL WITH IT!
"So yeah, we're different.
We still have right to do the same things you do; we'll just do them differently."
I'm proud to be a PWDDWA!
