  • Ha! I didn't know it had a name and everything. Now I feel all spayshul. And no, not special like that, OP, so don't get your panties all in a twist.

  • Well howdy girls!

    Ready for the Jenny swoop? 

    OP - you're a tool. 
    Mewebster, you're nearly as bad.  But not quite.  Just annoying. 

    And everyone else FTW.
  • I'm not even going to bother feeding the troll. If you believe me to be an asshat, so be it. I'd rather be an asshat than a person someone like you respects.
  • I work with individuals with developmental disabilities and have for the past 10 years. I know a lot of people use the r-word in their everyday language and certainly don't intend for it to be disrespectful but I'm telling you no matter how you mean it, it's still extremely hurtful to the population. It's still a very raw, sore spot for many people with DD. Some of my participants have flashbacks and nightmares about growing up constantly being treated despicably and being told they are worthless and being called the r-word, even by their own family. As kids, some were even institutionalized because of their diagnosis, which to this day is still officially called Mental Retardation. So even medically, it's a stigma they can't shake. I'm not trying to sound preachy but saw this post and thought it was the perfect time to "spread the word to end the word" so please, if you use this word for any reason, take a minute to think about how negative and derogatory it is and consider pledging to stop using it at www.r-word.org/

    [QUOTE]So my sister is autistic. I beg of you, if the subject is autism, how else should I describe her except as "my autistic sister"? Shall I use a code word? Mostly, she is "my sister", but if we're on the subject, I'm not going to pretend everything's 100% normal. It's no better for her than anybody else. Last I checked, autism is a diagnosis, not an offensive term.

    <p> </p><p>Not to channel the crazy political correctness that is the OP, but I believe that the correct usage of the term would be, 'my sister who has autism' (eg. autism is one component of your sister's health) rather than, 'my autistic sister' (eg. your sister is completely defined by her autism). I have heard a similar rationale before for why the usage of the term is inappropriate... and I guess, upon reflection, I have arthritis and my H has diabetes, yet it'd be fairly rare for us to use the terms, 'my arthritic/diabetic spouse' as a description, however it's common for diagnoses to be used in this way when it comes to developmental issues like autism and in some mental health conditions... and that could be insulting to some individuals who feel that they are being unfairly defined by their diagnosis, thus the emphasis on semantics. </p><p> </p><p>I do think, though, that in the forum of a wedding board, the usage (or lack thereof) of the politically correct term for referring to people who received a particular diagnosis is rather irrelevant so long as the conversation is respectful. </p>

    No, that's what the individuals I work with prefer to be called in relation to my job.

    P.S. Great explanation on the person centered language, that's exactly the reasoning.

  • Work sort of work do you do? I'm intrigued by the use of participants over, say, clients!

    [QUOTE]LOL, gay. Yes because camo is a marker of intelligence. Keep talking. You are moving up the idiot scale really fast! Why don't you post under your regular SN?
    Posted by ricksang[/QUOTE]

    Ricksang - I think I have a crush on you.  I must go to Fleet Farm and buy some camo now.  Does that make me r-tarded? or gay?

    I know that I will probably get ripped a new on for this post, but you snarky brides are just so funny. It was hard not to join in with you beotches.
  • How annoying.  However, I find it interesting that people choose what to get offended about.  Some girl called herself OCD on here a while back and everyone jumped on her bc "my mom has OCD and its a real disease" and all that.  Of course she meant it as - "I'm super organized and things annoy me when they are not perfectly organized"

    too much focus on the lingo and not the content.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

  • I work as a nurse on a cardiac floor.  When we get a patient in with mental retardation (which is the actual medical terminology that is appropriate to use) we say "MR" short for Mental Retardation, followed by: profound, severe, mild, etc. in our shift to shift report.

    Sorry, if that offends you, but that is how it usually goes.  Didn't mean to burst your bubble, but nobody is saying it to be rude or belittling or making fun of said individuals.

    she is awful. just awful. haha! i should find a pic of her for you.

    (she is one of those people who grew up filthy rich and has never had to be responsible before. she lives in a 3 story townhome daddy bought her, drives a brand new acura daddy bought her, refuses to wear her designer clothes more than 3 times each...you get the picture! the good news is that my bff has recently realized what a crappy person this chick is and is planning to drift apart for her.)
  • ok, i'm going to post a few random pics of her for you. let me know after you see them and then i'll delete them. :) you guys don't look like twins, and she's a redhead, but there are a lot of your pics that remind me of her!














  • Actually I think you might have posted one before? I think it's all in the eyes! She's prettier than I am (damn her!).
