It always boggles me why people get offended by the sight or sound of a word, regardless of context. It’s ridiculous that someone can get offended when I tell them that I was making retard noises in bed. How else would you describe that noise? Go ahead, try. Plus, I wasn’t being a retard in anyone’s face or anything. I was just being retarded on my own. When did it become a crime to be a retard and be conscious enough to describe it as such.
The other word people fear is the word nigger. They fear the word almost as much as they fear black people. Unless you’re black, you can’t be offended by that word. White people don’t want to hear that word because it makes them feel guilty. Everyone else just doesn’t want to be in the same room when a black guy hears it.
