**** being politically correct, be contextually correct.

miimii f' I? Jack
Dear activists trying to
eliminate the word "Retarded". Retarded is
not slang for somebody who is mentally or
physically handicapped or has a learning
disability. Retarded means slow or delayed.
To put it contextually, retarded means
possessing a slow thought process or "dim
witted". So to an extent, yes, retarded IS
interchangeable with Stupid. Ban the misuse
of the word labeling of People with
disabilities, not the word in other situations.
Get that through your retarded
misunderstanding heads. End rant.

How about this? Don't ban any words. People seriously need to grow some thicker skins.
#90 to #52 - anon (03/09/2013) [-]
No one is seriously considering banning words. However, some slang such as "retarded" is extremely popular so some programs are trying to reduce it's usage.

I cannot believe people are trying to ban certain noises that come out of our mouths. It's a series of mouth shapes and voicebox contractions.

words are more than just a sound but yeah i agree anyway

Then why do actions speak louder than words?

Wrong. Swords are ******* mighty.

Pen-swords are the mightiest then.

I'd rather be called "retarded" than "handicapped" or "learning disabled".
User avatar #136 to #8 - admiralen ONLINE (03/10/2013) [-]
youre both handicapped and learning disabled
#25 to #8 - anon (03/09/2013) [-]
Yeah you might, but our goal for best buddies is to call them normal, because that's exactly what they are, is NORMAL.
User avatar #36 to #25 - ilovehitler (03/09/2013) [-]
Except they aren't normal. If the majority of the population were like them, then they would be normal and everyone else would be different.
Being different isn't a bad thing, though.
User avatar #143 to #8 - spacestalin (03/10/2013) [-]
I can't walk since the day I was born, buddy, wheelchair for life. And there's nothing I hate more than people calling me "special", "handicapped" or "impeded". I rather they just call me a cripple, or Bob.
you either are an ass and call me bad **** , or have the balls to treat me like any other person, but please don't patronize me, is insulting.
User avatar #11 - trippypunchline (03/09/2013) [-]
The funniest thing is that retarded IS the politically correct term. The actual scientific term is Mental Retardation. You can have mild, moderate, or severe Mental Retardation.
#23 to #11 - anon (03/09/2013) [-]
NO! the political ******* term is IDD which stands for Intellectual Development Disorder.
User avatar #26 to #23 - trippypunchline (03/09/2013) [-]
No, if you take a psychology course, the term is Mental Retardation.
#124 to #11 - anon (03/10/2013) [-]
you don't know what politically correct means do you
#137 - Maroon (03/10/2013) [-]
The **** you mean "ban it"? They can bitch and moan all they want, but they'll never see a law passed where it's illegal to use a word.
User avatar #170 to #137 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (03/10/2013) [-]
******* right.
User avatar #171 to #137 - farblaze (03/10/2013) [-]
What if by "ban" they mean make it as bad a saying " ****** " in public. While you can't actually ban speech, you can make it frowned upon in this society.

Who wants to ban them? They just want people to stop saying it when it's derogatory to other people.

Don't you mean handicapped forces?

You dont call retarded people retarded. You call your non-retarded friends retarded when they are acting retarded.

Most retarded thing Ive ever said.

User avatar #116 - fukkendragonite (03/10/2013) [-]
people get offended too easily.

Ok, so you're offended. So what? That doesn't mean anything at all.

"I'm offended" Well okay, good for you I suppose. Why don't we ban you from being offended, that's equally fair?
#167 to #116 - anon (03/10/2013) [-]
As much as I agree with you on how people get way too offended sometimes, you obviously sound like you haven't ever been called out or harassed for being a minority of any sort. Of course to the person who says nasty **** , everything is a joke to them. It doesn't mean anything to you when you haven't been through any of the same crap. People say they're offended because they hope that this will stop malicious words from spreading to others of similar situations, of which that word has a heavy negative meaning/memory to them. But of course, banning words is ridiculous. What's not, however, is how the person wields those words to harm another. In that case, you're just an ass. I'm not trying to limit your freedom to use those words but the way you choose to use them is up to your morality.
User avatar #176 to #167 - fukkendragonite (03/10/2013) [-]
harrassment, discrimination, personal assault (physical or mental) are all different matters, but you raise a good point anon.
User avatar #74 - srapture (03/09/2013) [-]
How about don't try to ban words because freedom of speech is a thing... Just throwing that one out there.

I love people who mock themselves and their whole group too in order to fit in with others. Man, everyone should just conform to society.

Actually, Retarded is the medical classification for anyone with an IQ of less than 90.
User avatar #178 to #135 - watermelonkittie (03/14/2013) [-]
I just thought of something brilliant. google glasses need an app to scan for IQ, so we can all know who we can call retarded.
#163 - anon (03/10/2013) [-]
That is exactly how I feel about "handicapable."
I am handicapped myself, and I hate that **** .

To me, "handicapable" is much worse. It's like..." Oh, It's so sad that you're disabled. BUT AT LEAST YOU TRY!"

************ , I GOTTA TRY. I'M ******* HANDICAPPED!

User avatar #104 - stewartt (03/09/2013) [-]
(I was chewed out earlier in the semester for saying "Retarded" in my Sociology class earlier this semester) Wellp, going to go shove this in my sociology teacher's face on Monday. Wish me luck.
User avatar #107 - Hentaifan (03/09/2013) [-]
I've noticed that the amount I use "retarded" has gone down quite a lot recently. I guess my friends just do less retarded stuff nowadays.
I don't really say anything to or about real tards though, mainly because the way they look/behave disturbs me greatly for some unknown reason.
#113 to #107 - agentpurplek (03/10/2013) [-]
They creep me the **** out, lost one of my girlfriends over it because her sister has some ****** up retard disease.

>Be this year
>walking down school hall with gf
>school's out, so tards are released as well
>walk past one semi-tard holding hands with my gf
>he looks at her (or both of us, not really sure)
>he does the think where you lick your finger and touch your ass
>makes the hiss noise
>me and my gf nope.jpg and speed up our walking
>creeped out to the max

That's the only real experience I've ever had with a tard that gave me a legitimate reason to be creeped out.

how do you even ban a word?   
a word is formed from sounds we make with our mouths   
so they're trying to ban us from making certain sounds into a collective to for a word?   
are they going to fine us for it?   
throw us in prison?   
execute us?

that's how.
#94 to #85 - slowbroking (03/09/2013) [-]
I'd imagine this is what would happen if a white guy said it.
User avatar #88 to #85 - lolfire (03/09/2013) [-]
Have you even seen Django...
Or any recent movie ?

White people can say ****** now. Just not in a derogatory sense.
That's how it should be.
User avatar #91 to #88 - YoshiBond (03/09/2013) [-]
You do realize that Django was set in slavery days right? It's not like DiCaprio was calling people in real life ******* .
User avatar #93 to #91 - lolfire (03/09/2013) [-]
Yet the point remains that in modern times he still said the word.
Also most comedians these days use the word ****** as part of their act.
Frankie Boyle for example.
User avatar #97 to #93 - YoshiBond (03/09/2013) [-]
But the point of the movie was that it was a long time ago. Look at A Knights Tale, just because they wore suits of armor in a modern movie does not mean that people do it today. Go to the inner city and say ****** , tell me how tolerant and not offended people are.

just because it wouldn't be in the dictionary won't make it not a word

if that makes sense
#172 - zzRedzz ONLINE (03/10/2013) [-]
Who the 			****		 bans words?   
   
Does it go through a special department where they make it illegal for someone to say a specific word? Or use a word in a specific way?
