Vindwyn, I'm sorry I called you retarded. I had the impression you were one of the many people who only registers here for one of two reasons--to get a Gmail invite, or to post in the thisisnotporn.com thread. Since this is a community and not your typical web messageboard, both these groups of people are dreadfully annoying. I have since seen posts of yours in other threads, and realize my error. I apologize.

I'm not excessively PC! I guess it comes from working with the disabled. The word retarded is just sad.

Clodfobble has a point. That thisisnotporn thread needs a serious threadjacking. Help us ThreadHijackMan, you're our only hope!

The've had over 14,000 views in a little over a month. That's amazing. It's almost twice as many as the "I need Humor" thread which has been going on continuously for 9 months.

Now that the alleged thisisnotporn creator has shown up I feel better about the whole thing. It gives it some sort of legitimacy.

No it's not, it's a perfectly good word. What is sad is the images it brings to mind for anyone who has worked with or even contacted retarded kids. Also the reaction of much of the public to those same kids.

It's not the word, it's never the word, or the dictionary definition of the word. It's always the baggage we pile on the word in our minds.

The same thing with the word homosexual. The queers piled so much baggage on it, they felt they had to appropriate gay. (That pisses me off because that was a wonderful word that I haven't found a replacement for.)

Anyway, don't blame the words for the feelings you internalize, or feel others internalize, when you hear it. Changeing words won't change peoples perception, and that's what has to be done

One GMAIL Invite

I have one GMAIL invite that someone gave me after I had already received mine. Would anyone like it? If so, send me a PM with your e-mail address.
