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

This is true. - PeeledBanana

Hitler - Miauzer

The retar is used
-80% for pepole acting dumb
-3% medical use
-7% insulting actual mentaly retard pepole

3 It's not funny

It's never funny. Having worked with the mentally handicapped for 28 years, I guarantee most of them do know what you are saying, and it hurts.

Although I haven't done anything like that. It must really hurt peoples feelings to be called retarded - Enderninja327

If it is witty, light hearted and has no intention to be offensive, then it may be slightly. But, the mean ones... - gemcloben

Although some find it to be. - Pony

Bullying is never funny, people need to grow up - MChkflaguard_Yt

4 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

5 Some of them are nice people

I met a bunch of mentally ill people and they are sweeter than a honey bun - TeenTitansGoSucks

6 It spreads hate onto others

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

7 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

Exactly! Don’t you think they’d choose to be “regular” people if they could? - Miauzer

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

And everyone in general

9 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.

10 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

The Contenders

11 They have feelings V 1 Comment
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.

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

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 Hating on them makes you lose faith in society
16 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

17 It makes you look mentally retarded

Hating on someone for this makes you look bad

18 They cannot help it
