LEGAL DISCLAIMER: It should be noted that the word "Retard" (used in the slang as a noun, not as a verb) is a widely used and warmly embraced term in the english language and will continue to be incorporated into our (my) natural conversation for the foreseeable future if only because it is often the most accurate description in our (my) vocabulary. We heart the Special Olympics and will not be held liable for offense taken by those lacking the mental facilities (see: moron, cretin, idiot, jackass, imbecile, douche-bag, lame-ass, dip-shit) to distinguish between an innocuous and generally accurate descriptive term and words that are used in clear acts of hate speech. (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hate_speech).
Please note that on the dictionary.com definition page lists the following as the sponsored advertisement:
Take the Stupid Test
Are you stupid? How stupid are you? Test your stupidity with this test!
... which furthers both our assertion and the legitimacy and keyword relevancy of said word and our claim that using this term as a verb is, in short, limited and completely retarded.
really? i mean, really???!!!!
