Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)

Like many couples who have been together for six years and are in their late twenties, Emma Bishop and Ben Marshall are thinking of getting married. But for them, it is not entirely straightforward.

Emma and Ben both have Down’s syndrome and are residents of a supported-living community in Devon, where they have an active social life and part-time jobs. They live in a small house with their friend Cy Clench, who also has Down’s syndrome. If Emma and Ben were to get married, it could mean a completely different way of living.

Through the high spirits of their dance nights to the tired conversations at the end of their working days, this film follows Emma and Ben as they decide whether married life would be an enormous stress they could do without, or the romantic dream they always imagined.

      You fucking intellectual retard. I will ensure you are first in line for your injection.

      Your shitty English and ugly, bigoted attitude are less human than them, and you should be wiped out. You are sick and disgusting, and you should at least be sterilised.

      • vcx

        Ah yes of course. “vcx” from documentaryheaven is on The List.  lol.   My boys can swim, thanks.  And might I guess that you have someone with Down’s Syndrome in your family?  Is that why you’re taking this so personally?

        It’s understandable then that you would react so emotionally and impulsively, after all if you are close to someone with Down’s then odds are you have some profound genetic mutations as well.
        It’s all well and good, as it happens I am against human suffering, I am against exploitation of freaks and retards, I want to see it all gone, forever.  I don’t want to see more babies born with tongues too big to for their mouths, and eyes too far apart.  I love humanity and I love a life well lived.

        It is true, as PolkaDot pointed out, that people who are disabled have rights.  Good! If they have legal rights, then they should be protected.  I am only saying that we should take away those legal rights, and then solve the problem once and for all.

        God bless.

            Um…. please inform me of the benefits of Down’s Syndrome, cerebral palsy, polio, smallpox, and scurvy.

            What the hell is wrong with me saying we should eliminate these plagues on humanity?

          • Anonymous

            That is very simple to answer – the answer is this: Its not my duty to inform you of the benefits. It is YOU calling for eugenics. So it behoves YOU TO PROVE WHY THEY PROVIDE NO EVOLUTIONARY BENEFIT.

            Not us, you intellectual lightweight. Down’s Syndrome is just another example of the broad based genetic requirements for maintaning the human species, and to PROVIDE FOR THEIR FORWARD EVOLUTION (notice evolution has been happening without your eugenics?).

            You are a lightweight.

            As I said – first in line for you bro.

            You have been completely owned. And your mental superiors are telling YOU to get back in the kitchen and cook some fucking ideas, you sexist, waste of skin air thief.

            OMG i just noticed you added conditional diseases to a list of genetic. You are a joke. Scurvy can be fixed by eugenics? The intelligence of your kind explains why Hitler lost the war.

          • vcx

            I want to talk to you on the phone or something.  

            You keep repeating “intellectual lightweight” like it’s some kind of trump card.  Then you say I’m “owned” like this is a game or something.

            You want me to prove why retards and mutants provide no evolutionary benefit..?  How about this – no.

            No, I won’t.

            Scurvy is just an example of a pointless disease that human beings should not still have to deal with – and they are in many parts of the world. That’s wrong to me.

            Think of all the parents who have to spend their lives caring for profoundly retarded individuals.  That’s lives wasted, lives that could’ve been much more productive and happy.

            In point of fact, whether you like it or not, eugenics is coming.  I am a first year medical student, and it is my primary motivation for becoming an MD.

            I will stop as many freaks and retards like this from being born as I can, that’s what drives me.

            And guess what?  You calling me a lightweight or getting overly emotional and telling me what I “have” to prove does nothing to further this conversation.

            So whatever, call me all the names you want.  It’s not going to change anything.

          • Anonymous

            Lol. You want to call me? You are a sociopath, my friend. I am well aware that it is not possible to change the mind of people like you. Changing your mind is not my goal.

            My goal is publicly ridiculing you. Which I have done rather successfully, in the eyes of anyone with intelligence. And that’s all that matters.

            3rd line of the modern Hippocratic Oath:

            “I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.”

            You will never be a successful doctor. You won’t even accept the challenge of scientifically explaining your desire to wipe out these “mutants and retards”.

            And I know why. Because you can’t. Because there is no scientific justification.

            Furthermore, your pathetic adherence to some lame personal cause like wiping out those less fortunate than you, is now on public record. Contrary to common opinion, tracking down the author of online comments is extremely easy. And since what you are proposing is illegal – I encourage you to continue outing your psychosis.

            I say again: Down’s Syndrome is just another example of the broad based genetic
            requirements for maintaining the human species, and to PROVIDE FOR THEIR
            FORWARD EVOLUTION (notice evolution has been happening without your
            eugenics?).

            You are a lightweight. And you don’t have the requisite intelligence to be a successful doctor. 10 points for trying to wipe out humanity though. Good for you.

            You are dismissed. You may return to your delusion.

          • vcx

            You’re actually not ridiculing me, you’re having an emotional breakdown.  You’re clearly a kid.

            You say “wipe out” and keep comparing me to Hitler or Nazis or whatever. I’m well aware of the Hippocratic oath, and there’s no need to hurt anyone with a humane eugenics program.

            Honestly, what is your fucking problem?  Why can’t you accept that humanity would be better off without people having diseases?

            Seriously, do you want a return of polio?  Do you not accept that the progress of medicine has been a good thing?  Should we still be using leaches and bleeding people who have fevers?

            You’re a terrible human being for trying to make this a personal attack against me, when my only statement was that “People like this should not exist.  They should be cured.”

            Why do you want me to fail as a doctor?  Why are you wishing bad things against me when you don’t even know me?  I don’t have any interest in putting you down.  Why aren’t you trying to put me down?

            You say “10 points for trying to wipe out humanity”.  Wow dude.  Because that’s exactly what I said, right?  No, it isn’t.

            As far as “tracking down” the author of online comments, I stand by everything I said.

            Me and others like me will institute an invisible holocaust against disease, when you stop seeing these almond-eyed freaks at the mall you will have me to thank.

            Hate me more, wish harm against me more.  I want that energy. 666

            PS.  If this comment gets removed, how is anyone going to “track down” the author? :)

            Yes because curing diseases is the same thing as executing criminals.

            Really, curing disease is something that you want to come out against.  Interesting considering you chose the name “Jesus”, who healed the sick.

            Next time you get a headache don’t take any aspirin.  When you get up there in years and break a hip, don’t go to the hospital, just tough it out.  When your parents have heart attacks, don’t call 911.

            Because this isn’t a democracy. What you don’t understand is that your kind have come before and you are well recognised. You think you are some kind of prophet sent to remove suffering from the masses. But we all know – by instinct – what your kind really is. Your kind – the ones calling for eugenics programs to “rid us” of the weak – have always ended up being exposed for the weak stomached, puritanical cowards that they really are. You are ignorant of two things: the science behind evolution, and the value of every human being.

            wouldn’t you expect someone who is arguing that the majority of people are awesome to be popular?

            anyway you’re right.  you have “seen my kind before”.  i don’t want to make anything better. I only want to fucking torture and kill all the freaks and retards that i can.  you can psychoanalyze why, but I just want to.

            I have loved and looked up to Dr. Mengele literally since I was a boy of 8 or 9.  So I’m going to live my childhood dream one way or another.  Legally, I will find a why.

            Testing drugs on volunteers, whatever it takes… I’m going to torture these rotten little shits all i can, just because I hate life.

          Hey, most males with down’s syndrome are sterile, and 2 percent of down’s syndrome cases are genetic….sooooooooooooo what does genetics have to do with it?

          • vcx

            That’s a great question!  Thanks for bringing it up.

            In my view, we need to have nanotechnology added to our DNA for many reasons, but one is for extra proofreading of the code. I have no specific mechanism worked out, but it is not hard to conceive of nano-robots cleaving a bond or two and healing the mutation.

            What about taking a child who has been conceived with Down’s syndrome, cloning that zygote and in the process destroying the mutation?  The original retarded zygote is aborted, and the same child is born healthy.

             Until then I think it is also important to have earlier detection of mutations, and subsidized or mandated abortions for these mutants.

            Your comments are like 70% of the comments on this page… what is your personal connection to down’s syndrome?  You say you have no family, so are you dating a mongo or what?

          • Anonymous

            No. You see, I have something you lack – compassion. It makes you empathise with others and so on – but unfortunately sociopaths miss out on it.

            I have never personally known a….”mongo”……as you refer to them…….but you see, what I know is that even a small child has a vivid, inner life. I remember something of mine. I was certainly not the intellectual monolith you see before you today. I was a small boy – full of strange ideas and fantasies, unhinged by anything as bothersome as physics or reality. I didn’t know what love was, and even my immune system was pretty dicky. I even had a small penis.

            But today, I am the teacher, giving the sociopath a lesson in reality. You know nothing about the inner life of human beings, and you have no place deciding who or what gets snuffed out. And what’s more, there are those of us who watch tirelessly for the return of your kind – because we know you will come again. And you have always, always been stopped.

            But thanks for playing.

      I agree with vcx. Unfortunately, a Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities,
      Article 2, says that disabled persons cannot be sterilized, and can have as many children as they wish. Article 29 says that disabled persons have the right to vote. (It really means that idiots and imbeciles have the right to vote.) The convention has 149 signatories (countries). The Convention is perfect illustration how stupid our politicians are.

      • Polka23dot

        There is a typo in my post. The Article 23 (not 2) says that disabled persons cannot be sterilized, and can have as many children as they wish. The same article says that they have the right to adopt children.

    No, they shouldn’t have kids simple. Nor adopt. Hell not even a puppy or a cactus.
    If so called mentally normal people can’t look after their kids. I’m sure as hell not paying my tax money to support there kids. I can’t bear to understand what it is like to live like they do. And I know they didn’t choose to be like that. But they’re making a choice to whether their child will or won’t.
    Any one disagree with me? Well let them look after your kid alone for a month. before you fucking reply that I’m a heartless wanker.
    I’m a realist, I say it how I see it. The world shouldn’t be run by those fake prats in DC or downing street. Those who fluffy coat and tell you what you want to hear.
    It should be run by people. Who make tough decisions based on fact. And not fucking feelings.

          i would if I knew them as well as a friend. Many are very vigilant and care even more about others than most of society, they want to do the right thing and make others smile. If i needed a baby sitter and it was in between this couple with down syndrome or two 18 year olds.. Id choose this couple EASILY.

          As someone who works with PEOPLE, HUMAN BEINGS with mental disabilities and/or physical, people really don’t give them a chance on what they can achieve, no I don’t think they should have children due to the implications it too would have Down’s, but adoption shouldn’t be out the question either. I know they would do nothing but love that child and do whatever is needed to make sure its happy and healthy. Unlike some teen Moms now who go out drinking on weekends and leave their baby to their parents .. they don’t care. But of course you wouldn’t bat an eye lash at young parents..and what about working Moms who leave their kid to some strangers with no qualification while they just earn money, they let strangers raise their child? Who may have little to know idea what they are doing.. Not saying *all* are like this but honestly, Down’s are by far from being bad parents or members of society. They are capable humans.

            Lol yes that is my point. These angry people with their hatred for the individuals in this documentary would like to believe that these people are not human – and I would like to show them how close a chimpanzee is to being human. We all deserve respect, and we all have a right to life.

    My favorite part about the comments below, is how the people who would be put first in line, by a democratic eugenics program, are the actual people calling for eugenics.

    If we do implement eugenics, a general vote would prove that the public desire is to put the people calling for eugenics at the start of the line.

      That doesn’t matter you selfish shithead.

      If you would stand in the way of human development as a species just because of your own attachment to your first-person consciousness, fuck you!  You deserve to die.

      No one who knows that eugenics is extremely important to advance would get in its way.  And a “democratic eugenics” program makes no fucking sense.

      You don’t have these mongoloids and their babysitters (like you) decide.  You have a panel of experts and relevant professionals.

    Just watched one of those Star Trek TNG episodes that was basically a philosophical debate acted out through sci-fi (my favorite eps.).  It was the one where all the inhabitants of a planet were designer babies, all born without imperfection.  Society was so perfect that they never really invented anything great because they never had any problems that called for inventive solutions.
    They had become an intellectually stagnant culture.

      So what you’re saying is that human beings, whether they may not mentally excel in certain areas, have no values. These two individuals have something that someone like yourself will never find. It’s called love. They have found someone that they get along with and makes them happy yet you try to take that away from them with a snide comment on how they are nothing, worthless, how they have no value? Why even watch this documentary if you are going to comment negatively? I bet you watched this to laugh at it. You’re a disgusting individual. Burn in hell.

    NOOO…I am so disappointed!

    Emma really reminds me of my sister but she is more lucky, Emma I mean.

    My sister has had a few boyfriends but the longest love-story, which is now over, lasted three years.

    Once left the communitycenter, because she found a part-time job, she is not meeting any boys like her.

    My dream for her is to find a good boy, as Ben may be, and get married to him.

    I don’t want to see my sister single. She is clever, mature and
    responsible. I don’t want her to spend her entire life humoring my
    mother’s ideas (a wonderful mother though).

    I really don’t understand why after six years their parents can not
    bless their wedding. How many times in their only life they’ll find
    someone to love???

    I remember now why I loved replying to you. You are so easy to expose 😉 That little speech right there? That is illegal in most countries, including the US. No, I dont mean DOING it. SAYING it is illegal. I also remember why I got bored with it – owning you is too easy.

    Peace, my nutty little friend.

      Dude…. come on.  I could easily be someone from that crazy family that boycotts military funerals and says America deserved 9/11 because of gay people.

      They’ve said waaay worse.

    Lordy this is a vile comment thread.

    Swap out ‘tard for nigger. Or jewboy or sandnigger or faggot or breeder or cracker or whatever epithet you’ve got on hand. How about your particular ethnicity, social position, sexual preference and pyschological profile? I’m very sure there’s a term of derision for it. I’m also sure that for the non-niche descriptors there’s a pitiable history of discrimination on marriage laws and practices.

    They are so good at communicating with each other…it’s admirable.

     I think this couple communicates better than a majority of other couples with down syndrome or not.

    Those two seemed like better couples then many I’ve seen… They communicate, talk about their feelings and unabashedly care for one another. Shame on their parents for manipulating them out of it.

    I don’t understand why people would watch this documentary, simply to make fun of the people in it.

      Or because it’s interesting, think of that?

  • trolo

    i cant wait to watch this, i think it could help other people look at the idea of marriage themselves, and maybe even learn a thing or two. it sounds like this couple will really step back at look at the pros and cons..unlike alot of “normal?” people who jump into it without thinking…REALLY thinking. atleast thats what im hoping for! i read some of the comments but they sure were boing..you guys are just taking eachother in loops, cmon now! move forward!

    Actually it is scientifically proven that most Down’s Syndrome men are infertile anyway.
