Does this mean we have to start calling dead people "life challenged"?

I'm not a fan of how the word retard is used (although I hypocritically misuse it as myself when thinking about the Night Owl :p) but to ban it is just going completely over the edge. I don't see anyone beating a path to the legislative floor to ban the word f*ck because many find it offensive. Beside to ban the f word would put severe limits on Samual Jackson's career! :D

What about a sentence like "these policies are sure to retard economic growth"? Is that allowed or not?

That might fall in to a similar category as niggardly. :)

Retard or retarded isn't even used to describe people with impaired intelligence quotas. Developmentally Disabled is now the official term.


Banning a word won't reduce it's usage. It's also a first amendment issue.

There are much kinder words to use.I find that people who are truly intellectually handicapped are seldom called retarded.Retarded is in my estimation is most often reserved for the denizen of the DU underworld after some particularly 'mindless,"Retarded" posting' concerning the state of world affairs.

A retard by any other name is still a retard, is that what you are saying?

BOSTON (FOX25, myfoxboston) - Friends of the intellectually disabled are pushing to ban the word "retard" in Massachusetts.

Today, soldiers of the Anti-R Movement will stage a pledge drive at the State House.

They'll be collecting signatures from those who want the word removed from everyday speech.

On Wednesday, students plan to hold an anti-r word rally at Winthrop High School.

This comes several months after White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used the offensive word to describe an ad campaign proposed by liberal allies.

Morons.

The aviation industry will tell 'em to go fuck a duck. Modern aircraft have recorded messages for landing, and one of them is on touchdown, the words "retard, retard" refers to the throttle settings.

"Je suis en retard" is French for "I am late".

These people are morons. :rolleyes:

In addition to that, ignition timing of a car often needs to be retarded by adjusting the distributor on older cars, or by the computer on newer cars...

I'm sick of people trying to ban words in our language.. There is a clinical definition of the word retarded, and the fact that some jerks use in in a derogatory manner doesn't change the clinical definition, but our our society has gone so PC limp-wristed that even when you use it correctly they gasp.. My brother has a retarded daughter-she's 8 with the mentality of a 2 year old, but my mother hits the roof any time I use the word retarded around her.. Her learning ability is, quite literally, retarded, meaning behind a normal learning capacity and pace of a normal child..

I can't wait to get the hell out of this state!

Apparently, neither can the "progressive" retirees. They can't afford to retire to the idyllic, Utopia they created over a lifetime of voting idiocy, then they export their ideology to neighboring states.:cool:

It's like a pro-lifer getting upset because an aircraft landing is "aborted".
