  • I dont really think it is because the people i think are retarded never have disabilities. However, i never say it in public and i'l call people stupid, but i won't call them that because i dont want to inadvertently cause someone to feel insulted.

  • No since I don't associate that with people that have a mental disability that makes them slower.

  • No. Words change meaning all the time. If I call something stupid or retarded, I'm not talking or thinking about someone who was born with a mental disability. If that's what YOU think of when I call something stupid or retarded, that's your problem. Just like how gay used to mean happy. Now it's for homosexuals. So if I call something gay, I'm not comparing it to homosexuals. It's called context. Not to mention, words mean nothing until YOU give them meaning.
