So all I said is that her baby's mental state develops more slowly and with more impediments than a normal person. Are you disagreeing with me? Are you saying that Trig, with Down Syndrome, will develop mentally at the same rate as a normal child? Or did I just offend you on some deep level for using a medical term that's been established for decades, instead of using the touchy-feely "special needs" BS instead? And I thought liberals were the ones who were overly worried about everything being PC. It's not like I used it as an insult, as "anyone who gives their kids names like Track, Trig, and Tripp is a retard". It was in a consistant, medically exact, way. Grow up.Retarded –adjective 1. characterized by retardation: a retarded child.
Retard -verb 1. to make slow; delay the development or progress of (an action, process, etc.); hinder or impede.
