Every parent knows that many times adults can be far worse bullies than children.
We recently learned of this shocking story about a mom who learned some evil person had harmed her innocent baby in a horrific prank, but the following viral clip reveals people can be just as cruel, if not more, in person.
American mom Dallas Fowler has it tough enough at home, with her toddler Jameus suffering from Hirschsprung’s disease, a condition affecting large intestine (colon) that causes difficulty passing stool, according to Mayo Clinic, and two stomas.
Yet a recent shopping trip to Walmart left her nearly in tears, after an older woman started making rude, unprovoked comments about Jameus’ condition.
The mom wrote on Facebook that when her baby boy wanted to get out of the shopping cart, she lifted him up and his shirt revealed his stomas and bags, explaining she rushed to the store without him wearing his usual underclothes.
“The onesie helps to keep his bags in one place and makes it harder for him to tug and pull them off,” she wrote. An older woman behind her noticed the bags and Dallas wrote she “shrieked a little before she said to me ‘why in the world would you let someone do that to him?’.”
After explaining to the complete stranger that her son’s colon did not fully form, the woman responded to Dallas, “well I am sorry but I just think that is so ‘repulsing’, can you please keep his shirt down?”.
Although the mom wanted to scream at the woman, she instead took to Facebook to explain that there is nothing repulsive about her baby’s condition. Much like mental illness, diseases like this one that require stomas and colostomy bags are deemed taboo by society. This mom wants to change that.
“Please be kind and choose your words wisely, especially should you choose to comment about something that is none of your business,” Dallas wrote. “Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about, and my son is winning his.”
