Do you find it cute how people like this really think that they can change how people think? It's easier to call someone a "retard" instead of "intellectually challanged", and it basically means the same thing except it's sugarcoated to be less "offensive".
Newgrounds, what do you think about the word retard?
i like the word retard
i also hate using 'people first' (e.g. a boy who is a autistic vs. autistic boy) language (my elementary school actually requires it of teachers)

I think it's handicapped.
I think it's a valid word that has more uses than the stereotypical insulting verses we use it most frequently in. that is a joke of a twitter page and the whole movement is fucking....retarded XD

It's pretty slow
It can be offensive, but then it doesn't offend me? Like, I don't think people should be mean and use slurs as insults at all, if that means anything.
If you want to insult someone, be creative with it. Don't be lazy and fall back on the same old slurs and words.
Asking people to stop saying a word is like asking people to stop breathing. People are still going to do it, no matter what you say, or do, to stop them. What right do they have to try and clamp down on my use of the English language? If I want to call someone a cunt, I will call them a cunt, if I want to call someone a retard, I will call them a retard, end of story.
I would never call someone with a mental disability a retard.
On the other hand, someone who says and does stupid things? Has a profile picture of them drinking and smoking while underage? Says "SWAG" a lot? Doesn't know that the Titanic wasn't just a movie, and was an actual ship?
Yeah, those people are retarded.

Online interactions would be more interesting if more people were more creative. I don't care if someone tries to offend me as long as it's funny or clever.

why not, scarface?
are you not a straight shooter? you don't 'tell it like it is'?
LISTEN UP - they are pampered pieces of meat and RETARDED
most of them contribute very little to the human experience besides providing a drain for their dumb, sympathetic parent's money
My school has a program called "The R-Word" where they're trying to stop its usage.
Here's the funny part:
When they advertised the program during our morning announcements, they had crafted the most unintentionally insensitive ad ever. They had an ACTUAL RETARD in our school make....well....retard noises (incomprehensible moans and groans) over the intercom, followed by someone saying "DO YOU THINK THIS IS FUNNY? STOP THE R-WORD NOW!"
I don't use the word "retarded" in common conversation because of my own personal morals, but if the school wants other students to do the same, well, this is the way NOT to do it.
it all depends on the context which people sometimes just don't seem to understand. It bothers me how ignorant people can be. If i say "Man you are such a retard" he is being stupid not mentally disabled. If i go up to a mentally handicapped person and say "Sir you are retarded out the ass" then that can be seen as a little offensive. Still at the end of the day it is just a word. Louis C.K is great when it comes to stuff like this. One of his show's he bought up the "N" word. When people say it what is the first thing that comes to mind? Same thing with them saying ban the "R" word, I'm still going to think retard. If someone does not like a word like retard, or cunt accept that no matter their efforts (unless they are living as the dictator of a totalitarian state) the word is not going away. I know that is difficult to even assume as there will never be people okay with things, they will never accept it but a man can dream right? You fucking retards!

I don't know why tax dollars are wasted so they can get their own teachers, curriculum, and programs in school so they can bag my groceries.
Not quite worth it if you ask me.
Because high functioning autism is minor, and with support when growing up you can be perfectly normal. If you cant see the reason in that then you are just stupid.

Because the tax they will pay later on in life is worth way more than what educating them costs, its pretty obvious. And the rest of that money will go to the economy.
At my school, the students that aren't retarded or in honors classes are largely ignored and are given shit teachers and, in general, are taught less rigorously and learn less as a result.
you must go to a pretty shit school

Even if they do get a shit job like that, theyre easily going to pay off what they took in time. Im not sure what your argument actually is except that they dont get a respected job.

It's not the word, but the implied meaning. Retard means to delay or fall behind, and I've met plenty of people with normal brains, who were clearly 'left behind', chief among them would be the folks who created and marketed political correctness in the 1980's.... The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
