It's offensive and insensitive
I worry about ppl who jump to conclusions and do not realize that "retard:" is has many different meanings.

Dean is an emotional retard.

A lot of people are drunk on polictical correctness.
If some think I would use this word callously around a mentally impaired person -these ppl would be ignorant.

"retarded"-

. To put off; to postpone; as, to retard the attacks of old age; to retard a rupture between nations.

Syn: To impede; hinder; obstruct; detain; delay; procrastinate; postpone; defer.

DB9

I'm not jumping to any conclusions, and frankly I don't need a definition of it, I know what it means And I'm not "drunk on political correctness" either. It doesn't matter to me whether it's used around a mentally impaired person or not, it's still offensive to me.

verte said she was "pretty damn offended by it", so I would think at least out of respect for her, it shouldn't be used. I think we can all come up w/ other words to use to convey what we mean. Honestly I think children use that word - I don't hear that many adults use it in everyday conversation, or on message boards.

I don't want to make a big deal over one word, but this one's not nice and it's better for it not to be used. If a candidate used it I'd think twice about voting for them. Then I'd vote for someone else.
