I think he''s trying to be provocative. No one on DL is that stupid .. close, but not that bad.
He''s not a retard. He''s a spaz!
Jesus, don''t say retarded. They prefer to be called little people.

Wrong. CP is a disease of motion. Some people with CP suffer cognitive disabilities, but Walt Jr. does not seem to suffer from this.
I always knew Bret Easton Ellis fucked around on the DL while daytime drunk in his dotage
Mitte actually has cerebral palsy, though milder than his character''s.
Although this dude is not mentally challenged, I wonder why some socially insensitive people still are calling mentally changed people "retarded" in 2011. That word is obviously laden with social baggage and causes consternation when uttered in any context.
"Retard" is one of the hateful words that is still deemed okay to use. Perhaps because the mentally challenged can''t fight back. That''s usually how it works.
How is "mentally challenged" better than "retarded" in any way? It means the same thing. The only difference is that it has the silly schoolmarm shaking a finger PC connotations to it. All of the "--challenged" words sound like that.
R22 Homosexual gentleman v fucking faggot. Guess it all depends where you''re sitting.
This thread has me foaming at the mouth!
da suck job?
CP is primarily a motor disability.\
Some people with CP also have some cognitive deficits, but not all and not most.\
Some people *without* CP also have cognitive deficits, as OP clearly illustrates.
r23, how is "gay" better than "fag," since gay is used pejoratively as a comprehensive putdown or defamatory word.
This has to be THE most inane discussion board on the entire internet.
P.S. I didn't even know this was a gay discussion board (see inane comment above)...you would think people who are gay would be a little more sensitive to people with disabilities, but what do I know? I guess nothing is off limits when you're so-called "bitchy".
Virus alert @R18's link. Fuck you, by the way.
That's an image hosted on the Blogspot server, R30. It's not a virus.
Gossip - a friend of mine lives in or near his apartment building in LA and said they are surprised he makes it to work, in that he parties a lot and dabbles in drugs.

Only in that it is a newer term. With time, it will collect the same social baggage a previous poster was referring to,through the use of it for the purpose of insulting others accross the board. When that becomes unbearable, a new term will be coined.
...Unless it gets re-taken, through a heavy public relations campaign (Queer Nation comes to mind)
That's how PC works.
Sex with spazos is fabulous. Lots and lots and LOTS of drool. But you have to be careful at orgasm because those thrashing limbs can take your eye out.
"Retard" is inexcusably offensive. But I know older folks with developmentally challenged siblings who referred to their condition as "retarded," because that's how the term was used at the time. It's akin to my partner's mother, who refers to her own mother (who had Parkinson's) as being "crippled up.". That's just what they used to say.
I was wondering if he was retarded, the lisp or whatever speech impediment he has makes him sound like it, though other than that and the fact that he's on crutches he seems normal, I thought it was a stroke he had, or the character irl had a stroke and was supposed to be playing a physically disabled person.
" and does he have a penis?" Unless he had it chopped off I'm going to assume..
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
