Smashwords:
I Mary Wynn and 100,000 other concerned people want to ask you to remove the book titled Your Mongoloid: Tips for feeding and care. We find this book highly offensive to those with special needs. Doesn't your company read the material before putting the company name on it? If you would have read this you would have seen that in the first few pages it states that a mongoloid really has no human qualities, that they should NOT be treated as human and that they make suitable pets. Does your company find this so called literature appropriate? Does your company agree that my daughter with down syndrome is not to be treated with respect and dignity? Does your company view my daughter not as my flesh, but as my little pet? This book is offensive and shows no respect for the human race! Just a few more questions? If the book were titled Your Cripple: Tips for feeding and care, would you publish it? If the book were titled Your Nigger: Tips for feeding and care, would you publish it? I think not! Why? Because, for one that is absolutely positively politically incorrect! Two, because you wouldn't want your company name associated with it! So, why would you want your company associated with a book titled Your Mongoloid: Tips for feeding and care? Please do the right thing and remove this book from circulation. I will not stop until I see this so called literature taken out of the view of the public. Thank you for your time.

Signed,

Betsy Hultquist-Wynn

There are enough misconceptions out there about people with special needs! This is one of the worst I have seen! We need to educate in a positive way! 98% of mothers who get prenatal testing for down syndrome abort if the test comes back positive! Why wouldn't you? If you're reading vile trash such as this book, it would scare any mother out of it! Who wants to give birth to a suitable pet? That is the HUGE misconception! Children with special needs are just like any child, they cry, they laugh, they learn, they teach and they are more like you and I then they are different! Please help us educate about special needs in a positive way! First step of many, get this book out of the public eye!
