    The word “special needs” or “special” used to be the alternative and even now that is becoming outlawed and is used as a joking reference. More acceptable terms are now simply “disability” or even “exceptional” “student with exceptionalities”

    Maybe it's just because I know french, and retard in french just means late. So what you're really doing is calling some one slow, that's why their late. I never associated the word with someone who has a disability.

    On the topic of word policing in general. Look up the story of Doug Adler. A tennis announcer that used the term "guerilla" to refer to Venus Williams playing style. What happened to him is a fucking outrage.

  • Ryan Pearson
    Ryan Pearson 7 days ago

    I once got lectured for using the term "mentally retarded" in it's purely clinical meaning. I was not mocking, just describing. I cannot stand this word policing. Intentions matter! There are no magic mouth sounds that are inherently evil. Look up "steven pinker euphemism treadmill" for a brilliant explanation.

    On a slightly related note. Chew on this food for thought. Brit and Aussie would be racial slurs if Britain and Australia were non-white countries.

    How are true comedians even being the slightest bit apologetic for saying retarded? RETARD RETARD RETARD. So what? I grew up my whole life saying the word "retarded". Ironically enough i work with special needs guys now and i dont think of them when i say retarded. Sometimes I'll be driving with some higher fuctioning autistic guys and get cut off by a moron driver and say "what is he retarded?" And I'll catch myself right away even knowing its not even what i mean. People are idividuals, retarded was a word used for a long time, and people are just pure pussy these days and it's so sad to see.
    I almost forgot my biggest point to that. Some of my higher fuctioning boys will say "he must be retarded"! Lol stop treating them like they are so fucking different that they can't take a word like the rest of us cuz it's not true. Some of these guys are on the part of the spectrum where they dont wanna feel protected and different and that's all these SJW white knights are doing. You are butchering society into little groups.

    As a disabled person, I hate when people try to diminish my experiences with discrimination and ableism by telling me that I am to call myself 'alter-abled.' It's like, 'No! MFer, I am Disabled!' Ableist, SJWs don't even realize that THEY are the problem. Able bodied assholes deciding for people with disabilities that the word 'disabled 'is offensive. It drives me crazy. They're the ones not comfortable with disabled people,,so they try to get rid of the word. This rant doesn't have to do with the word retarded, except for the fact that it's usually the same people who get upset at that joke who are the ones who discriminate against people like myself.

  • SkippingLegs
    SkippingLegs 8 days ago

    We need to stop letting these looney SJWs censor words. Retard was a medical term and over time enough people started using it as an insult towards mentally disabled people so now people are trying to censor that word, but what if enough people start using a completely innocent word as an insult, I'm sure whatever that word is, will become censored too. Imagine if I said, fuck you walnut, you're an ugly walnut, haha what a walnut, are we gonna censor a type of nut now?

    I think the line should be if someone is using a non socially acceptable word with the intention to hurt someone else. For instance if someone were to call a black person a nigger or calling someone with an actually disability retarded in order to hurt them. Obviously that’s not what this guy was doing.

And have much higher education levels and awesome stuff like free health care. I’m not asking for it all to be free, but can we at least make insulin affordable for Christ sakes? Diabetics are dying all the time bc they can’t afford the shit they need just to simply live that non-diabetics naturally produce FOR FREEEE. If I really start talking/thinking about it all I get extremely depressed and discouraged knowing there’s NOTHING I can do to help the situation. #911wasaninsidejob #bastards👊🏼

    Every word given enough time will become offensive like they said. Retard was a medical term now people are offended by it. The word Handicapped is next and honestly if we keep pandering to these coddled whiny ass overgrown children it will never end. We will not have to worry about the government censoring us because the people are doing it for them.

    We use the word retarded in Ireland in everyday conversation. It’s not what it means here anymore. “Spastic” is also a word that we use that has nothing to do with its original meaning. Some words evolve and change and some slurs remain too horrible to change.
    It’s actually such a normal word here that I didn’t know what “the “R” word” even is!

    Louie CK said it best. People that say "n-word' are pussies. Because you know what they mean and they put "nigger" in your head anyway. Same goes for "r-word" or "f-word." Even worse is when you say something stupid like "she is a t-word" and now you aren't sure what they mean so you have to think of every word bad that starts with "t" that they could have been meaning.

    The internet and tech has disabled natural selection, it has allowed weak people to be empowered like never before and be tough in a way that they are not in reality. The whole point of all this is to get everyone to cower in fear from a facist word police mob, an essential backdoor 1st amendment repeal because they know they couldn't get the 1st amendment actually repealed...they are just creating a sect of untouchables and another group as Tom points out---straight white males that are canon fodder, its basically a payback scheme of introducing a reversed Jim crow era against people that weren't even alive or responsible for it.

    As someone with a disability who, truth be told, doesn't take a strong liking to the word "retarded" or people who use it, I feel like I need to stand in support of Tom Segura here. My biggest issue with these hard-line SJW-types critiquing and making violent threats against comedians for the jokes they write and tell is, they either genuinely don't understand or actively choose not to understand that humor is incredibly subjective.
    Whether or not you find something funny is perfectly fine by me, but the moment you go after someone who happens to have a different sense of humor from you, especially if your version of going after said person involves making violent threats, that's where you've lost my respect (especially when you're a quote unquote "progressive" type who allegedly calls someone a cocksucker to get your point across).
