Facial features of people with down syndrome are similiar, but they are not related. They have a larger forehead, swollen eyes, and their hands and fingers might be meatier, and, or, the length to each finger unusual. People with down syndrome talk with slurs tied to each word they say, and their focus might be to some other object.
Down syndrome is a form of mental retardation.
People with Downs Syndrome can lead very normal lives, it just takes them more time and effort to learn. They are usually very honest and careing, and never judgemental. They make wonderful friends, because they usually have a refreshingly clear view of what does and does not matter in life.
Raised in the right environment (ie. a happy and nurturing family) kids with Down Syndrome are an asset to society. The biggest challange they face is the rude and downright hateful disrespect shown to them by ignorant people. People with Down Syndrom deserve respect just as much as anyone else.
Some of the athletes in the special olympics have Down Syndrome.
in short, if you call someone who did something stupid 'a downy' or 'down syndrome' you obviously don't know anyone who has it or have ever properly met someone who has it.
