Friday disability fact(ish)
The following titbit caught my eye in the latest newsletter from Popbitch, which is known for its irreverent take on celebrity gossip and scurrilous rumours:
"Best 'fact' we heard this week: People with Down's Syndrome have a particular liking for Abba ... Anyone know any more about this?"
Okay, so this looks like a bit of a sweeping statement, but could there be any truth in it? After all, we thought it was soaps that people with Down's Syndrome were supposed to like?
Well, if anyone's going to know whether this has any basis in fact or is just some kind of urban myth, it's going to be Ouch! readers. So have you ever heard anything like this before? Tell us in the comments.
While we're at it - are there any other impairment groups that have a fondness for particular bands or singers? Do blind people tend to like The Beatles? Do CP'ers favour David Bowie? Do wheelchair users roll along to The Rolling Stones? Or should I just stop now?
