    it first emerged as a way of describing handicaps, but later came to be used as an insult to one’s intellect because of its association with handicaps. but the thing here is that nobody has the handicapped community in mind when they use retard to insult someone else. it has taken on a different meaning, a different intent.

    the word “bad” was once used as an old english insult describing effeminate men, centuries ago. is “bad” a slur?

    no because people don't still use bad to harass non gender conforming people
    people still use the r one against autistic and neurodivergent people as a direct insult

    yeah i'm not spreading peace love and happiness but retard is a slur

    like, eat it, you don't have to stop using it lol. its just by definition to people a slur, i've had a friend ask me to stop saying retard and whilst i'm open-minded enough to recognize it as a slur, i'm not gonna stop saying it cause of my innate nature to be awful

    admit your awful and move on

    the r word is consistently used to disparage and insult people who suffer from mental disabilities or who are otherwise neurodivergent, and when applied otherwise exists as an unfavourable comparison to those groups

    you're free to say you don't give a shit but skip the mental gymastics as to how it's fine or just like any other insult

    no because nobody fuckin knows what bae deal deal da beal means
    nobody recognizes it as a slur because it hasn't been one in trillions of years and nobody would even accidentally use it as one
    people still r as a slur against autistic and nd people
    also trans people aren't exactly da same as non gender conforming people as you said it was a slur against effeminate men who wouldnt really be trans but just like. yknow i don't know why i'm typing this all out
