smooth move next time a boyfriend tells you he's going to visit his parents instead of having sex with you, don't you dare say, "What, are they terminally ill?" Because, with your luck, they probably are.

how is it that his brother can't feed himself but is capable of riding the bus alone? you wouldn't think he was that severely retarded if you were already informed that he was at least semi-independent. FYL
Number 4 gets a thumbs down. As for the use of the word retard, my brother (who I adore very much) happens to be mentally retarded and I don't have any problem with the word. It's not like people use it literally to attack autistic children. It's in no way shape or form offensive towards those who are mentally retarded, just the stupid people that the insult is being directed towards.
Autism and Mental retardardation are completely different. Granted, Severe Autism can manifest itself in a similar manner as Mental Retardation, they are two completely different disorders. Some autistic people are Semi independent , or in some cases, able to live on their own independently, whereas many Mentally retarded people require lifetime care. My neighbor's son is Autistic, and lives in an apartment in a special complex for people who require on call nursing. He never uses it, has a driver's lisense, a job, and a fiance. he lives a very normal life.
My brother has mental retardation. And he can ride the bus by himself. He can eat by himself, but sometimes he needs help picking it up. Obviously, you've never learned how hard it is to take care of them. It's one of the hardest things I've ever done, but children, or anyone with a disability, gives this world color. I wouldn't change my brother for anything. I wouldn't change anyone with disabilities, they're the nicest people I've ever met. You, number 4, are possibly the biggest jerk I've ever met.
YDI indeed. Mental retardation really isn't funny. I highly suggest watching your mouth in the future, otherwise you'll be getting into a LOT of trouble. Trust me, I know.
so your saying that everybody should crawl in the hole and die? Lets face it, everybody says that nowadays. I overcame autism and I say that only in response of a stupid rule made and if somebody whos NORMAL acts really stupid. If somebody says it either way around me, thats one thing, If somebody calls me retard because of something really stupid I did, I wouldnt be offended because I would deserve it for being really stupid, thats one thing. Saying 'thats retarded' is really not big of a deal and neither is 'your a retard' unless that statement is made towards a kid with special needs, then I would agree that that person is a scumbag and deserves to die
youve been dating him for a month, and this never came up in conversation? sounds like you dont know him too well... but he sounds like a nice guy for taking care of his bro like that
why would you ask why he needs to be fed? doesn't that OBVIOUSLY mean that the brother is handicapped in some way? You're retarded.
Well, a 6-year-old doesn't need to be fed in the way that you stick the spoon in his mouth and all... But you don't leave a 6-year-old home alone to feed himself, right? Well anyway, this isn't the case. I also think it was quite obvious that the brother must be handicapped, she should watch her dumb mouth. Lesson learned, I guess.
