I find this such a difficult thing because for me, the term has changed. I have never once met someone with a learning disability or spoken to somebody with downs syndrome and thought "Wow, you're retarded"

I did however, stare in shock as I sat next to someone who I knew had no discernible disabilities and have them ask me what `alphabetical` meant....at our high school graduation.

Yes. Carl. YOU are retarded.

I don't call the mentally handicapped "Retarded". I find it offensive and save it for the truly stupid denizens of society.

"Retarded" simply means "slow." It was once the compassionate term for people who were previously called "idiots," "imbeciles," and "morons," which names were not considered insults till they started being used as such.

Sadly, it doesn`t matter what we call them -- "handicapped," "disabled," "challenged," "delayed" -- whatever name we choose, it will come to be used as an insult, and compassionate people will have to choose yet another name for them. It will never end.

@ Zeegrr60. I have an autistic son who happens to be very verbal. Not "Retarded". Pulls A's and B`s in school. Now I know you might think Asperger`s, but no... just high functioning. All the other traits of Autism are very obvious though (hand-flapping, over expressive emotionally, etc.). So yeah. You are misinformed.
