Top Ten Reasons Why People Should Stop Hating On the Mentally Retarded


The Top Ten

1 It's cruel


It's not their fault they're not like you. Put yourself in their shoes. How would you feel if someone made fun of you because you're not like most people? It would feel absolutely awful. Stop making fun of them - KingSlayer93316

It's not their fault. You should be nice to the person not cruel - Therandom

2 The mentally retarded are people, not subhumans

They can't help being born with disabilities - they're still humans, just like the rest of us. - Entranced98

3 It's not funny

People using autistic as an insult is very rude and uncalled for. - SoloPotato

What kind of idiot would make fun of someone with a terrible condition like that? I mean, that is very immature.

It is funny

Nobody finds it funny so stop

4 It spreads hate onto others

There are two people at my church that have said retarded. I get angry when I hear it used like an insult. I don’t even know anyone retarded, but it still makes me angry.

I'm shocked people really do this kinda stuff to mental people. I normally see people really nice to them. But yes that is mean spirited to hate on mental people. Just plain evil - Chaotixhero

5 Some of them are nice people

Most of them are, actually

6 The world will be a better place if you stop being mean to them

And everyone in general

7 It's inhumane

Considering how many people born with a mental disability have actually given tireless efforts to make a positive difference in our world, including Sir Isaac Newton, Bill Gates and Steven Spielberg, we should definitely have more respect for them and their achievements. - PositronWildhawk

8 It's not the person's fault that they are retarded

Why do people pick on people that have a mental problem. Its not their fault. - SammySpore

This condition is caused by mutations in DNA after the meiosis process during sexual reproduction. That means it happened before they were even born. It's obviously not their fault. - RockFashionista

They're born like that. If you don't like them, then deal it. - Delgia2k

In most cases you're right, RockFashionista. But there are also people who become mentally handicapped in several different ways, including traffic or industrial accidents, aneurysms, severe illness, and others. And sometimes the person was in an accident early in their life, and you just don't know.

9 They have feelings

Not all of them do

10 The mentally retarded should be more respected

It makes me angry when others say autistic people are mentally retarded. I'm not kidding, few things in this life make me angrier. I have autism, and I'm not mentally retarded at all. Neither are other autistic individuals. - RockFashionista

Don't say retarded Autistic people are amazingly sorta different from other people if there weren't people like them then this world would be boring

Thank u so much both of u. I'm autistic, and because of my autism, I could read the word "questionable" at the age of 3.

The Contenders

11 We are all equal

Black white Asian Mexican man woman gay straight we are all equal

I literally don't understand why people hate on others just because they are different. - Pony

As Martin Luther King Jr. said, people should not be judged on their color, religion, physical condition, etc. but by the content of their heart. - ethanmeinster

12 It is a waste of time

They are too dumb

13 They were just born that way

Most were, but not all. I work in the field of caring for the mentally handicapped (that's the term I use) and I remember a staff member named Tim that I worked with in a group home. Tim left to work at a construction company, and I left to work at a day activity center for the Mr. A couple years later, after a bad industrial accident at the construction company, the DAC where I was working got a new client, and it was Tim. There's a saying among workers in my field that you're only a car accident away from being the care-getter and not the caregiver.

There ill they can't help it

14 They're not aware of what you're saying about them

HEy PanthersFTW? You are not helping, go somewhere else, offense TAKEN

And I have a right to say that. Ah ten years later and you can get the death penalty for saying one word. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

They are most definitely aware.

This is too general a statement, there are so many different levels of Mr. Most of them are smarter than you think, though, and are very much aware of what is being said.

15 They cannot help it
16 Hating on them makes you lose faith in society

I got tons of friends who believe me. BOOM! - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

17 It has no positives for doing so

It cannot even be considered a wise crack or a joke. all it does is make those with disabilities feel down, and depending on the condition and severity, it can lead to suicide, or murder, and you can be arrested by enforced suicide, or murder by proxy, and that doesn't benefit anyone, and makes everyone more miserable.

I'm not saying all people with disabilities do this, but it is an example on how bad it can get. if you don't take heed on this then you are just an inhumane being and should die. - cheeseskates

18 It makes you look mentally retarded

This is a REALLY BAD downside!

This is strange. There are a lot of people who are like "I am autistic" you are just saying that. But if you are that's ok I am talking about the severe autistic not the mild. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Hating on someone for this makes you look bad

19 They can always get help.
20 Because you're not perfect either

Duh! No one is perfect except in their own way.
