 because people on here are effing retarded. And i mean that in the former, and not the latter way. If I mean 'developmentally disabled" or "mentally impaired" , i'll say it.

Because comparing your dumbass friend, who has all of their mental faculties but is being a complete moron, to someone who DOES NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO ACT WITH FULL MENTAL ABILITY  is fucking offensive.

I love you Annie! Op if I called someone a f#g people would be jumping down me and if I used the N word they would be going off. Why? Because it's offensive to homosexuals and african americans. But the person I might say it to isn't even one of those things so why would anyone get mad right. How come this word isn't offensive? Because the mentally challenged aren't as important???

Thats what im referring to Retarded shuldnt be associated with mentally challenge person. Its more offensive to call a mentally challenge person Retarded IMO

retarted is just a different meaning thats all they get offensive because your reffering to being retarted as a bad or ridiculous action where those who are really retarted cant help it ..they dont want to be compared to assholes or dumb ideas basically

mentally retarted was never an offensive thing untill some asshole came in to the world and read it out of a dictionary or heard it in class and started using it as an insult.. it is a medical term not a mean name
