Laugh if you want at the loud argyles that I prefer to wear with my black suit. I don’t even care if you dismiss the sexy pink polka-dotted tie that I like to wear with my blue-checkered shirt in clinic. But, whatever you do, do not mess with my sister.
My sister, Kristin, has Down syndrome, and let me explain what "Style Down Syndrome" really is. "Style Down Syndrome" is smiling when everyone else prefers to frown. It’s spending three summers, in sheer determination, learning to ride a bike because you want the freedom to be like everyone else. It's singing tunes from Grease at the top of your lungs with your friends. It's celebrating a third-place victory at a swim meet with as much gusto as the gold medalist.
GQ has since removed the line, just like it did the photo of women in Sox jerseys taken in Baltimore.
