    :steamed: We are becoming a bunch of soft whiny sissies. I CAN NOT believe I am about to say this. THe chief of staff is right. Some idiot group wants to ban the "retarded", wipe it out of common lexicon. It is supposed to be refereed to as the r-word. This is fracken retarded. I am sick of being told what I can and can not say.

    correct use:

    Does that shirt retard fire?

    Does that disease retard development?

    Does that disorder retard development?



    incorrect use:

    You are a retard.

    correct use:

    Your mental development has been retarded.

    I can see in not being used to describe mentally handicapped people but what about using it like "fire retardant".

    I don't know what is wrong with it. Retard means - To delay or slow down. So retarded, would mean delayed or slow. Sees to fit for me???? Joe is Mentally delayed = Joe is Mentally Retarded (sorry if you name is Joe:rofl:)

    Btw, I want to ban the letter K.... What can it do that C, or N (in the case of knife or know) can't?

    I believe the proper quote is "Okay, well maybe we should tell that to Rain Man, because he practically bankrupted a casino, and he was a ri-tard."

    My wife works with "special needs" children. They say "M.R." Which stands for "mentally retarded." But, they can't actually say "mentally retarded."

    Which, to me, seems retarded.

    The term "retarded" is still used in the DSMIV-TR which is the manual used by mental health professionals. As in Mildly Mentally Retarded, Moderately Mentally Retarded and Severely Mentally retarded. The same diagnostic criteria is used in the ICD-9.

    This is an appropriate use of the term. To call someone retarded or something retarded in jest or in anger is probably not the best use of the word.

    I continue to use the terminology for professional purposes.

    When I was a kid in school in the 1950's there was a "Retarded Children's Classroom". That was what was on the door, there were a lot of different kids with different handicaps that were in there and they never let them associate with the rest of us, but that was the wording they used. Thinking back there was a kid there they said was a "spastic" .. he walked all rigid and wobbled back and forth, there was another kid who shook his head side to side back and forth never stopping. Hmm.. I've not thought of these kids in 50 years, but never had any disrespect for them in the what they called them, it was just what we were taught in school was right at the time.
