Sometimes I wonder if I might be retarded, and I’m just not aware of it. Maybe everyone is just being really nice (and if you are thank you, keep doing what you’re doing).
I mean, nobody’s going to just go up to a retarded person and say “Hey! You’re retarded!” You don’t call a retarded person retarded. That would just be retarded. If you call a retarded person retarded, you’re retarded.
Can a retarded person call someone else retarded if they are retarded or acting retarded? How would you feel if a retarded person called you retarded? Would it be wrong to correct them, and say “No, you’re actually the one who is retarded,” or would that make you retarded by default by calling a retard retarded?
Maybe we’re all a little retarded…
