    Technically any comment meant to “Damage or insult their reputation” is a slur

    At least that’s what the Oxford dictionary says

    Although the way people use slur now is different so it depends on intention

    does the word retard in any way describe someone who is handicapped?

    ya'll really trying to make it like I called him disabled and intended to mock the disabled when
    a) I called a certain action retarded, not the person
    b) the coloquial use of the word 'retarded' means stupid/dumb

    I really was right when I said some people act like twitter andys

    by all accounts, it is a synonym for ‘stupid’

    nobody here is disparaging the handicapped. anyone who does deserves the rake.

    A slur is literally anything that insults someone/a curse word
    Are you going to try to rain on anyone who uses such words in this forum, or only people you don't agree with politically (or in this case about a borat clip lmao)

    :heyzeus: is a slur because it emerged purely as a token of disdain and prejudice

    retard is not a slur, it is readily used as a general insult. it’s only a slur if you equate “retard” with “mentally handicapped”, which is disparaging in and of itself

    now if i went around calling people with disabilities fucking retards, that’s a different story. the intent there is clear. but the intent here is not to be prejudiced. context is important.

    That's why you went in on me, who didn't actually insult anyone with a slur, when I was replying to someone who did use one by calling me a cuck

    whatever justifies your fake outrage I guess

    you're aware that's literally the origin and dictionary definition of the word, right

    Can we all just agree to stop pretending I was about to choke slam a mentally disabled person from the top of the hell in the cell and move on?
    What a pointless argument based on nothing.
