It is not about being politically correct.  It is about not making fun, so to speak, of those with disabilities.  Again do you ever call anyone you autistic such and such?  Ask a parent of someone with retardation or a developmentally disabled adult what they think of the term retard being used.  Perhaps then you will have your answer.


Just for the record, Pat Mucci has been one of the most if not the most charitable GCAers to a number of my Autistic son's charities. This started with Pat before I ever met him face to face. I did not take offense by what Pat wrote, but then again I know Pat's flaws.  ;) He is a unique guy!!


Thanks for the kind words and attempting to set the record straight.

But, upon reflection, maybe I wasn't sensitive enough to those taking offense to the words, "cretin", "moron" and "imbecile"

Perhaps I should have used more apt words to describe them, words like "asshole", "jerkoff" and "dickhead"
Those words tend to be more "individual specific" and don't cast as wide a net.
So, in the future, I"ll try to be more "sensitive" more caring about my selection of words.........................NOT ;D

Then again, Mark indicated an objection to words he ascribed to the "barnyard"

You don't think he's afraid of offending the sheep do you ?

When he remarked, " I really like ewe"  What do you think he meant ? ;D
