  • I'm not sure exactly what you mean by making fun of stuttering in songs and tv shows, but not everyone who stutters is mentally retarded. Personally, I don't think it's ok to make fun of either one.

  • I dont make fun of either one. Personally I am offended by the word retard. I guess when you have special needs children that have speech problems that can happen.

  • Neither is ok. It's never alright to make fun of something a person has no control of.

  • Neither are okay.

    Things have changed since Porky the pig.

    Has anyone watched "All in the family" lately? I can't believe they can still air that show considering how many racial slurs are used in it.

  • I have no clue what is socially and politically appropriate anymore so I just shut my mouth. :)
