I appreciate your opinion, Joni... but it is just that.<quoted text>
I did not tell you it was off limits, I said it was in poor taste.
Educated people learn to change some things with the times and we learn from the past.
Much as we in the past used other offensive words that today are not ok.
I can "bare" to read anything and listen to anything. But I would prefer to listen to educated, well spoken people.
Plus, I never called you a name so your little limerick is not called for. IMO
But I will not get into a war of words with you.
There are no hard and fast laws when it comes to words and their use.
But... if it will make you feel better I'll replace "retards" with "apples".
This forum is so full of apples... we could make a ton of retard sauce.
