My son is developmentally disabled.
Every time I hear the word “retard” or see it, or hear someone flippantly refer to something they dislike as “retarded” I wince inside because it stabs me. I have some younger relatives who use it as a default insult word, and I guess this is my passive-aggressive way to ask them to stop.
Stop saying retard.
Stop saying “ur so retarded!” in Facebook comments.
Eliminate the word as an insult from your vocabulary.
