No I dont think the word retard should be banned. The word retard means life long suffering to me.
it should never be used to describe a mentally challenged person. However to describe somebody stupid...it simply cannot be replaced.
Why not? We already banned ****** and cripple.
No. An incomplete vocabulary leads to faulty thinking.
It should not be banned, the word should remain abhorrent to decent people, and the sociopaths are going to use it whether it's banned or not.
Only by those who cant spell.
no its a medical term..
No! That's retarded!<br />
If they do ban it, then the replacement word will have to be retart
Only if half the rest of the english language is banned as well. Think about it. People will just find other words to hurt eachother with. Banning one won't do ****.
