Temp ban.

How do you know its temp and not permanent? [I mean, I know imabench has been temp-banned, like, 10000 times, but still ...]

Your comment is a reflection on you not me. You have never met me and don't know anything about me. You judge me based on your political bias. I don't tow your line and agree with your political bias so therefore I am sub human and retarded. So if I adopt your philosophy that also makes you sub human and retarded.

Yes, Sadolite, it destroys your sense of moral worth to actually have to be a decent human and show respect for others by not degenerating an entire group of people with offensive diction.

Fact 1: You don't believe in being politically correct.

Fact 2: The r-word is used with reference to the intellectually disabled. Often inaccurately, since plenty of people with autism and aspergers (which DDO doesn't recognize as a word for some reason), can be very intelligent.

Fact 3: Thus by using the r-word to call something or someone stupid, you are either intentionally or not connoting an entire group of people who struggle with genuine mental conditions, and you are putting down this entire group.

The fact that you tow the politically correct line and I don't is your example of showing I am a bad person. Retarded, mentally challenged, slow all mean the same thing. You can't show otherwise. All you can show is that you have been indoctrinated to believe the word retarded is bad but can't explain why. Tell us why is the word retarded bad and the word slow isn't or is that word bad too. And if it is why? How is mentally challenged any less offensive than retarded? Use science and intellect to explain. Because some politician 30 years ago coined Mentally challenged it is not a scientific or intellectual reason to determine that retarded is offensive. Please explain?

Sure, they all mean the same thing, but only one of them was ever used in a derogatory fashion to diminish the worth of an entire group of people. You can't just ignore the historical background and context of words and language.

Being PC is silly, and retarded is not a synonym for Aspergers or autism. Being retarded means that you are mentally retarded, but then people got offended by the word retarded so they started using mentally challenged the they used learning disabled.

You have idiots who will be offended by each phrase and keep changing it until it cycles back around to the word retarded. It's like idiots who chastise you for using the word waitress instead of server. It's silly and it gets old.

False analogy. The r-word is up there with the n-word and fa-word because all were used to de-humanize people. Waitress was not.

So calling someone slow or mentally challenged who is known for a fact not to be is OK under political correctness guide lines and is in no way derogatory. Excellent logic.

Endark, tmThe word mentally retarded doesn't cover everything. Retard literally means slow. Not everybody with Autism or Aspergers are mentally slow. It isn't a derogatory term either it used to be the clinical definition to explain mental handicaps that make you slow. http://en.m.wikipedia.org...

The change of terminology is merely because it was randomly chosen as something to be offended by.

From the same wikipedia article

"The terms used for this condition are subject to a process called the euphemism treadmill. This means that whatever term is chosen for this condition, it eventually becomes perceived as an insult. The terms mental retardation and mentally retarded were invented in the middle of the 20th century to replace the previous set of terms, which were deemed to have become offensive. By the end of the 20th century, these terms themselves have come to be widely seen as disparaging, politically incorrect, and in need of replacement"

Yet replacing the words does nothing to help the "soup d'jour" people

Depressing you have to be politically correct and refer to people as slow these days

Your comment is a reflection on you not me. You have never met me and don't know anything about me. You judge me based on your political bias. I don't tow your line and agree with your political bias so therefore I am sub human and retarded. So if I adopt your philosophy that also makes you sub human and retarded.

My comment is a reflection of your personality on here. I know enough about you to realize you try to antagonize people, go above and beyond to be a douche, and are a self centered, self absorbed, pain in everyones azz.

But by your affirmation, under my philosophy you can be whatever I want you be.

You know nothing about me as a person. You hate having your ideology questioned. That is what this site is for. You seek acceptance of your views from all or be damn them. Furthermore I did not bring up the retarded the mentally challenged or what ever the word of the day for it is. Someone else did. So ,logic dictates they are the ones being the politically incorrect douche and using their plight in a dispersing and derogatory manner not me.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

I love having my ideology questioned, because when I shoot down people that oppose me it serves to boost my ego. I will mentally masturbate to the thoughts of your brain melting and me crushing your soul

Endark, tmThe word mentally retarded doesn't cover everything. Retard literally means slow. Not everybody with Autism or Aspergers are mentally slow. It isn't a derogatory term either it used to be the clinical definition to explain mental handicaps that make you slow. http://en.m.wikipedia.org...

Which is why, as I pointed out to Sadolite, the word was often used incorrectly. You did read what I said, yes?
And it is absolutely a derogatory term.

The change of terminology is merely because it was randomly chosen as something to be offended by.

Yes, Sadolite, it destroys your sense of moral worth to actually have to be a decent human and show respect for others by not degenerating an entire group of people with offensive diction.

Elaborate. Back up your statement with factual examples.

Fact 1: You don't believe in being politically correct.

Fact 2: The r-word is used with reference to the intellectually disabled. Often inaccurately, since plenty of people with autism and aspergers (which DDO doesn't recognize as a word for some reason), can be very intelligent.

Fact 3: Thus by using the r-word to call something or someone stupid, you are either intentionally or not connoting an entire group of people who struggle with genuine mental conditions, and you are putting down this entire group.

The fact that you tow the politically correct line and I don't is your example of showing I am a bad person. Retarded, mentally challenged, slow all mean the same thing. You can't show otherwise. All you can show is that you have been indoctrinated to believe the word retarded is bad but can't explain why. Tell us why is the word retarded bad and the word slow isn't or is that word bad too. And if it is why? How is mentally challenged any less offensive than retarded? Use science and intellect to explain. Because some politician 30 years ago coined Mentally challenged it is not a scientific or intellectual reason to determine that retarded is offensive. Please explain?

Sure, they all mean the same thing, but only one of them was ever used in a derogatory fashion to diminish the worth of an entire group of people. You can't just ignore the historical background and context of words and language.

Being PC is silly, and retarded is not a synonym for Aspergers or autism. Being retarded means that you are mentally retarded, but then people got offended by the word retarded so they started using mentally challenged the they used learning disabled.

It's used to refer to any and every form of mental inhibition.

You have idiots who will be offended by each phrase and keep changing it until it cycles back around to the word retarded. It's like idiots who chastise you for using the word waitress instead of server. It's silly and it gets old.

False analogy. The r-word is up there with the n-word and fa-word because all were used to de-humanize people. Waitress was not.

Moron, idiot, and imbecile were all once clinical terms as well. Whatever terms are chosen will always develop a negative connotation because they describe a condition which isn't desirable compared with the norm. Cycling them out in favor of terms which are 'better' is just an exercise in futility. 'Special', 'cognitively impaired', 'mentally disabled', and 'differently abled' are now all used as insults because people in general like to compare those whom they do not like to someone is disabled. It's basic human nature, and it isn't going away, no matter how much anyone spreads the word to end the word. Personally, I think that retarded was the best of the options, because it was accurate and, originally, not offensive through connotation. It explained the condition accurately: a retardation (slowness) of mental development, while leaving the ability of the individual undescribed.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

So calling someone slow or mentally challenged who is known for a fact not to be is OK under political correctness guide lines and is in no way derogatory. Excellent logic.

Yes. It's not offensive to call someone black, but it is to call them the n-word. Glad you understand.
