**** 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.

I'd rather be called "retarded" than "handicapped" or "learning disabled".

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.

OR OR!
We can not ban words at all. And we can shut the **** up and deal with freedom of speech, you hypocritical ass munches.

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.

To ban the use/misuse pf that or any word would be infringing on the right to free speech. This is onep lace where I agree with the slippery slope argument.

That's not what free speech is.

No seriously I'm a retard. I have a 50% handicap ID, and I ******* love making jokes about myself being ******* retarded.

Actually, Retarded is the medical classification for anyone with an IQ of less than 90.

So we're not allowed to talk about Retarding Forces in Physics then?

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

Most retarded thing Ive ever said.

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?

How about don't try to ban words because freedom of speech is a thing... Just throwing that one out there.
User avatar #125 - thegrimreaver (03/10/2013) [+] (1 reply)
In traditional usage, if something is retarded, then it is slowed. Hence, mentally challenged people are mentally retarded. Ergo, if you want to remove "retarded" from the vernacular, then you probably ought to remove "slow."

TL;DR People are gonna replace "fire retardant" with "incindiary inhibitor"
User avatar #126 to #125 - BobertoJoe (03/10/2013) [-]
Although it does sound much cooler.
"Excuse me while I eliminate the inferno with my can of incendiary inhibitory."
Kinda badass.

(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.

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.

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?

www.r-word.org/

That's actually a site advocating to ban the word retard (they call it the 'r-word'). Click for the lulz.
