  • ONLY UNEDUCATED PEOPLE USE THE WORD RETARDED. ITS A WORD THAT WAS ALWAYS USED TO MOCK SOMEONES INTELLIGENCE. THE AMERICAN'S WITH DISABILITIES ACT WAS PUT INTO LAW WHICH FORCED BUSINESSES TO PROVIDE RAMPS EASE OF ACCESS, WHAT YOU SHOULD BE ASKING IS WHY DID IT TAKE THIS COUNTRY THAT LONG TO MAKE IT A LAW TO PREVENT PREJUDICE AGAINST A POPULATION OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE A DISADVANTAGE. EVEN WITH THE LAW, COMIC STILL MIMIC A DISABILITY, PEOPLE STILL USE THE WORD OPENLY, ITS THE ONLY PREJUDICE LEFT, COMICS WOULDN'T DARE USE THE "N" WORD, BUT HAVE NO PROBLEM DRAGGING THEIR LEG OR CUPPING THEIR HANDS, AND EVERY DAY PEOPLE SAY OMG YOUR SO RE------- PRETTY SAD. LIFE HAPPENS AND A SPIN OF A DIME LIFE CHANGES..........AND THE DISABILITY POPULATION IS GROWING...........SHAME ON YOU FOR COMPARING.
