Is This Quote Offensive

Post by cube_b3 » Mon Dec 06, 2010 3:30 am

arguing on the internet is like running in the special olympics
even if you win, youre still retarded
I read it really liked it, would like to use it. But people these days are sensitive about the word retarded.

It's offensive to retards, so I don't think Ian Michael would like it.

I had to look who he was, feel a little sad now. I also had to research Simon Birch and Morquio syndrome.
He has a physical retardation, not a mental one. But then again, people in the special olympics are physically challenged, not mentally.

I doubt he'd visit the sites I visit, but in hindsight this is certainly not something I can use as a signature :(.

My previous statement was a historical reference of a long-banned user on the forums. Even now, I regret it. However, I digress. I actually had the whole "flame war = retards" quote in my signature years ago.

Whenever I decide if something will be offensive, I remember my audience. On DCEMU, your audience consists of 18-30 males with varying levels of sociopathic tendencies. I don't think anyone will care if you make light of retards.

I hit 30 a few years ago. Not that I post often anymore, but I still check in pretty often.

In light of recent comments, I now completely agree with this statement.
