Just a quick blurb here to get the ball rolling. It appears society wants to change language on a continuous basis.
Why do retarded people need to be called “mentally handicapped”?
Why do the mentally handicapped need to be called “special”?
Blacks vs. African Americans? Dumps vs. landfills?
We all know what words mean, and changing the words around only creates contention and confusion. Calling someone “special” has just as much of a negative connotation today as calling someone a “retard” did 30 years ago.
Anyway, there is my rant for today. Good day, gentlemen.
