I wouldn't close this option off completely, but most likely no. However, I think having children with a special needs person can sometimes result in it being passed down to offspring. I'm not sure how common this is. Adoption is something I am very open to though.

Edit: This is just a personal opinion! You never know, I may be together with a special needs person in the future.

Not all 'special needs' are genetic.
Not all genetic 'special needs' would make any potential offsprings lives not worth living.

Would dyslexia put me off? No.
Would huntingtons disease put me off [having children with someone] ? Potentially.

Everyone deserves the opportunity to love and be loved.

This is quite a sensitive topic so you are going to get mixed responses. There are some people who are open to being with someone with special needs and some that are not.
I don’t think it’s a matter of looking down on someone, it is just preference.
I’m sorry if I have offended you in any way.

I think if you cant see past SN then it makes someone a shallow person

I few here know i have them but honestly when i told them i thought they would stop talking toi me but they have been really kind cos just cos you have SN does not make you a bad person

I would, we couldn't have kids though because I'm gay. if that weren't an issue potentially having a disabled child wouldn't deter me nor should it deter others, even if your partner weren't disabled in a way that could be passed down ~1/5 folks are disabled anyway so there's no avoiding the possibility. I'd love and support my child no matter what, they'd still be my kid, ya know?

No, of course not! My post should’ve been more clearer but that’s quite a trivial thing to be put off by. I was talking about more ‘serious’ disabilities.

No one decent will ever stop talking to you or stop being your friend because you have SN. However the question you asked was not to do with friendship and so the other posters response is not them being shallow or rude, it is just their own personal preference. I believe there's someone out there for everyone so it doesn't really matter what others think regarding this matter as long as you yourself stay happy and blessed.

This is pretty hard to answer. It depends on the type and level of severity of the disability in question being considered. Down Syndrome is definitely off the table as is autism. On the other hand dyslexia, spina bifida or dyscalculia are all possibilities. Dwarfism maybe.
