Retarded Protests

**** 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.

guess in 'merica they should ban word ''gun''. They are retarded and have yet to get the meaning of everything they do....

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?

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!

The term for "mentally disabled" always becomes an insult to call stupid people. That's why they have to keep changing it. The same was once true of "idiot" or "imbecile" one day "retarded" will be an insult the likes of those two and well have another term for the mentally disabled.

That sounds retarded.
User avatar #150 - deadmuerto (03/10/2013) [-]
no one would use the word "retarded" if it had nothing to do with mentally retarded people. Isn't that why it got widespread in the first place? so when someone uses it, yes, I see it as them making fun of mentally retarded people.
User avatar #169 to #150 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (03/10/2013) [-]
It probably started out as a medical description of a patient. Retard has always meant 'slow' so a head doctor in the 19th century probably made observations on 'retarded' thinking processes. Fast forward two hundred years, ************* whippersnappers use it as a vague, general insult.

You're the ones getting offended that other people get offended. The difference is, you do it to be a dick, while others do it in a misguided attempt at kindness.

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 #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.

******* right.

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.
User avatar #131 - mycatislookingatme (03/10/2013) [-]
Oh dear.

Trying to ban words is like trying to ban books, the moment you ban it, people want to use it.
User avatar #133 to #131 - Keoul (03/10/2013) [-]
Or banning anything at all really.
User avatar #127 - lazaman (03/10/2013) [-]
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.

Heh... You said "ass munches"... Heheh...

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

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.

People who are deemed "retarded" are called this because their brains develop at a slower rate than the brain of a normal person, so their brains are "retarded" in their progress. The fact that the word "retarded" can be used contextually and as a means of classifying a disability is just the way it is. Deal with it.
#120 - misteranthropic **User deleted account** (03/10/2013) [-]
Just like the word "gay". It can be used as happy, homosexual or stupid.
