I’m really good at guessing, and I know how different age groups write. ‘Course, … I could be wrong and the congress mammal himself could be a true idiot!

This is an issue that has concerned me for quite some time. I’ve often received responses from “Congressmen” that were obviously written by some pimply-faced staffer, laced with newly graduated college-speak complete with poor grammar and even worse ideas.
Infidelsaplenty, what is wrong with saying the word retarded jokingly and casually is that "spiritually" it lowers you. I do not know your age, but I will tell you when you start getting a bit older, you look back at your actions, so don't casually say the word retarded because it is simply a negative, low, thing to say. It may not appear that way when you are a 12 year old boy, but it is. Trust me on this one.
As the mother of a wonderful young man who happens to deal with intellectual disabilities, I can tell you that there is plenty wrong with that word. It is used as an insult, as if those who are challenged are somehow less than those with higher IQ's. It is hurtful because people use it to reference someone making an unpopular or unwise choice while those choices are rarely if ever based on the person's intellectual capabilities. It is for these reasons that the "r" word has been removed from the medical diagnostic, and that the word should be removed from the English language.
