Yes.

Paradoxically, the people who call me this are usually the ones whose false beliefs I've corrected.

Typical 3rd-grade example...

HE: "If I stab you with this pencil, you'll get lead poisoning and die!"
ME: "No, I'd bleed a lot, and maybe die, but not from 'lead poisoning'."
HE: "You retard! Why do you think they call it 'pencil lead'?"
ME: "Because graphite was mistaken for lead ore before the advent of modern chemistry."
HE: "You retard. You're making that up!"
ME: "No, I'm not. Graphite is used in pencils, not lead. Look it up."
HE: "Look up the word 'fist', retard, after I get done pounding you with it!"

<a physical beating ensues>


It better have involved you hitting him with a chair until he stopped twitching. 8)

No, it didn't.

It did involve me getting in trouble for starting the fight ( :scratch: ), and being grounded during the week that his dad's garage caught fire ( :twisted: ).

When working a shift on the register last week, I had a rocky encounter with these two hot headed sisters, where I was confused with some things. After I was done with them one of them told me "you need to go home", and as they were headed to the door, I think I overheard one of them say the r word.

I suppose that's sufficient. +1 internet to you.

When someone called you a "retard", it does not necessarily mean she thinks you are "stupid"

Just because someone called you that, does not mean you are retarded

"Retarded" used to be medical terminology

Now it is no longer medical terminology

If you want to give up, fine

But the reason for giving up, is not because of what someone told you

Only a clinical psychologist has a right to administer IQ tests. And it cost $$$$


Based on your description, nobody mentioned in your post measured your IQ

IQ is a bell curve


Dualism


Right now, the medical terminology is "intellectually challenged"


Some people are "intellectually challenged". But that is for the clinical psychologist to determine


"Intellectually challenged" is not a choice or crime or moral flaw



By the way, it gets on my nerves when someone remarks on my intelligence


It "hurts"


That includes compliments like "smart"


They expect you to believe whatever they tell you


If it is a compliment they expect you to say "thank you"

No, I've never really been called anything offensive to my disability. However, I have been called a "little girl" a couple of times by older women, it did make me a bit mad the first time though. :ninja: But now I don't care. :P

I've been called doubly exceptional, which sounds like little more than a euphemistic way of saying 'half-retarded'.

Idiots shower me with so much praise, for the slightest thing, that you could only imagine that they think I am intellectually challenged

For example, Rolando Morales penis was like
"(my name mispronounced), you know when daylight savings time is".


But that is not rocket science


The reason why I told him was because I did not want the penis to be late

I was not making conversation


This penis acted like he had never done anything wrong before in his life



Manipulate


Backhand compliments

One time a boy in my gym class called me retarded in 6th grade
