It's a word, get over it. Now when I hear "whatever the politically correct term of the moment is" the first thing I'll think is "oh retarded."

How much money is it going to cost and keep costing because people can't deal with words said to them.

I'm sure the homosexuals, gay, lesbian or whatever they are called this week are taking notes.

I'm sure in the not too distant future I'll be getting fined or going to jail because our politicians bend over to accomplish junk that puts their name on the front page.

I have a bad back, should I be called an orthopedic challenged person?

No, "lessthenjesus", you should be called ignorant. The signing of Rosa's Law marks a pivotal day for individuals with developmental disabilities as well as those who tirelessly advocate for their basic human rights. It's hatemongers like you who incessantly stunt this type of social progress. The aforementioned practice is hopelessly asinine.

P.S. The correct grammar usage in your user name would be "than". You're welcome for that invaluable English lesson.
