Retard means held back or something doesnt it, so to be retarded is to be held back by a mental or even physical disability would it not?

I think the word 'retard` should just be erased from the English language.

Many people use it as slang, while others see it as describing a person with disabilities.

Either way, it`s still offensive, isn`t it?
I`m sure using the term "disabled" is a lot nicer than "retard".

Good news- we're not having an etymology debbate about the word `theist`
bad news- it`s still etymology...I think


Ok, if I call someone a `turd or a retard or somthiong, sure it`s rude. Like if I said "Is that kid a retard?" I should be slapped in the face.
Now, if I said, "Does that person have a learniong/mental disability" or "has/suffers from a mentel retardation" not so.

Although I I am anti-PC, som things may need stricker or less strict limits.

IN the care of the word `retarded`, it needs to be more....is definite the word
