I'd prefer a medical definition rather than some loose interpretation of dictionary.com's definition of retarded.

I only say this because I made the mistake of referring to deafness as a retardation to friends in the medical community and I was served an earful as to why I was incorrect -- something along the lines of blindness and deafness being impairments, not retardations.

Also - Matt's comment about retard strength is associated with mentally retarded people having odd levels of physical strength, and blindness and deafness are definitely not mental retardations...

Matter of semantics, I suppose. Just don't tell someone in the medical field that a blind/deaf person is retarded...
