Many of the people I work with are the same way, they don't enjoy having their limitations pointed out to them and many of them have endured a long, cruel history where they were teased for being different and have developed some extra sensitivity.If you are interested in dating him you should be able to find a tactful way to discuss it with him.quite informative. to say your friend has this condition, just guessing here....
I am so glad I had the good sense to overlook his disability.
He was also a proud man, and he worked very hard to support us.
There has not been another man who could hold a candle to him.
He was a truly special guy, and I miss him very much.
They are not fully mentally developed and there fore being taken advantage of. They're more than 10 years apart in age, and have different fathers.
The youngest one was born with twisted feet, that have been operated on 4 times, so he could walk.

I work with people with mental retardation every day in my job.
I wouldn't worry about the consent thing, that sounds like a no brainer from what you have posted so far and can't really be determined without some clinical testing anyway. We went on to have a son who is the spitting image of his dad.
Open upfront communication to make sure he understands your intentions is the key. No, my son doesn't have cerebral palsy, but he is also handsome, intelligent, and confident. He died of an aneurysm that was totally unrelated to his cerebral palsy.
Don't worry a great deal about the label, such things are fluid, talk to him more about what makes him different, if he ever needs extra help, etc. If you are going to date somebody it is extremely important that you have a very strong sense of personal ethics and boundaries. When we first started dating, I was curious about his condition; so I asked him what was wrong. He had no problems with it, and he even told me if he had the chance to change his condition, with surgery, he wouldn't!
