    Help.

    Ok, I got in a fight with a guy not too long ago in real life after a normal day of college partying.

    He ended up with a broken elbow, I ended up with a broken jaw.

    Now the doctors have put a huge metal plate inside my mouth, and when I go to college, people think I'm wierd because I can't talk. They say that my speech will get better, but do you guys know how long its going to take? I literally can't say stuff like "hi" without slurring and sounding like a dumbass.

    Thanks

    I don't think jigga is a doctor. I would listen your Doctor.

    I'll give her a call later.

    You shouldn't use the word retard in that sense. Freet will eat you for breakfast.

    Why isn't that word filtered if it gets the Mods all antsy?

    Because there are non-offensive ways in which to use it I would guess.

    Not that I disagree, but *** is used negatively far far more often around here than retard- they probably just didn't see it as a big enough problem to need addressing via word filter.

    I also suppose they figured anyone wishing to discuss the topic of *** maturely could use homosexual instead. Yes, I realize that same argument could be applied to retard. Got nothing for ya on that one.

    Agreed. Plus, I agree with the mods, and it's the only reason I posted.

    Using "retarded" as pejorative or derogative shouldn't be allowed.

    Metalshredderr,

    Please be advised that we don't approve the word 'retard' being used in a negative way. Please refrain from doing so in future posts.

    Instead of retarded, refer to yourself as Mr. Wei Toddid, owner of the Sofa King.

    On topic: where exactly did they put the plate? Way back when I had braces, there was a something-or-other that they stuck to half the roof of my mouth, and my speech was really messed up right after they put it in. It got better over a week or two, though, if I remember correctly.

    At any rate, your doctor will probably have the most accurate idea of how long it will take.

    Off topic: a safe (though perhaps overly so) rule of thumb for language is that if you know someone who would actually be offended by a word, don't use it. It doesn't really matter if you think it's bad or not personally; these boards are theoretically open to all sorts of people and that rule just makes sure that you're covered.

    Is retard even considered "PC" anymore? If not I can't see any acceptable form for it on these forums. So why not just filter it? It will prevent ignorant new posters from stepping on mod's toes.

    I've always been one for intent rather than PCness. If someone uses the word retard in the way it was meant to be used, with no intention of offending, I don't see why it should be taken as offensive. The same goes for *** (either happy or homosexual), handicapped, black, and probably a few others I could think of. If people are well-meaning when they use a word, why be offended? If they weren't well-meaning, changing the word isn't likely to have any effect. I guess I don't see the point.

    Hmm, I should probably stop hijacking this thread now.

    Yes retarded is still acceptable.
    http://www.thearc.org/
    There is an entire national organization dedicated to helping people with various forms of mental retardation. They're an outstanding organization that everybody should help at least once a year.

    Rule of thumb?! You do realize that stands for female oppression?
