You take insults too literal. Like Michael Carson said, people use them just to generally insult someone, not to actually call them mentally retarded.

Anyways, if you feel offended by someone calling you names on the internet, you should probably leave, because there's a lot more where that came from.

I can't believe you posted a picture of your retarded brother on a public community. Now, don't be surprised if someone Photoshop's it, and you see it on another site later.

For the record, "retard" is a medical term that's been used for years. It describes someone that is "mentally challenged". I'll continue to use the term, and if anyone has a problem with it, that's their own problem, not mine.

Not much of a response to the most thought out and heartfelt post I've seen here. I understand your pain and get called that in anonymous neg reps often. Unfortunately the problem is much bigger than that one word. I long for a forum where people speak and treat one another as if they had to look each other in the eye and stand within striking distance of each other. Sometimes I wonder if basic civility exists only because of fear of consequences.

I would rather delete the pic, I don't know it just gives idiots opportunity to troll.

I cant even see the pic, my network blocks it but I would recommend taking it down. Also people may get the wrong idea behind the intention of your post, believe it or not there are sick people out there that would post this and not even have a family member who is sick....

Seriously choppy waters....

If I use this word as a pejorative, ever, at all, it's at home, and only referring to something I did.

I understand both points of view; still, I'd rather not see this word on the forum.

My ex girl has a brother who has a down syndrom and i could see her pain when i said that i like watching south park (later i figured it out that it was a bad idea to mention south park ..she finds them very offensive)..

like you all know nobody is safe from them not even myself.. i see them making fun of me in many ways but i can live with it cause in the end everybody gets it not only me.. some people can`t and shouldn`t if it`s not acceptable to them..
best way is to ignore all those who are putting salt on your wounds with those remarks (Someone from up there lets call him the mod of all mods sees it all and will punish them be sure about that)..

I have some people on the course i go to and they make fun of everybody .. she is fat that guy is ugly he has aids this and that even the word of this subject..
sure i can tell em that it isnt nice and how would you feel if someone close to you was made fun of in that way ..

thing is they would not care cause they are too busy making themselfs feel better at someone else`s expense.. most people just don`t care.. that`s why the dog is a mans best friend (of course not all), he loves you just the way you are (if you are good to him in some way that is)

so if you can ignore them.. and if possible forgive but never forget..


..... thats all i have to say at this moment (not in the best mood also).. could be i missed the point but maybe just maybe this could be some help or at least a sign of support.. stay cool..

I'm convinced that the more someone actually says that they're happy, the less happy they actually are, and they say it only to try and convince themselves that they are happy.
