I hate the word pussy. It's so unsexy. I don't let my s/o use it.

I work with disabled adults and use retarded on a regular basis. It's a medical diagnosis.

My MIL forbid the words fart and toot from being spoken in her presence... which is why I got a horrified lecture from my then fiance from ever saying the word in her presence again. Apparently I embarrassed him. lol



I don't like the word shin... because shins freak me out because it is just skin right on top of a bone. Makes me squeemy just thinking about it!

They're phasing the term mentally retarded out and replacing it with intellectually disabled. I guess you probably already knew that. :)

No. all 12 of my clients have mental retardation on the diagnosis page of their ISP.

It must be a new thing because even though our books still say mental retardation the professors have informed us that intellectually disabled (ID) is the term we are transferring to...



The terms they used to use a long time ago are Borderline Deficiency (IQ 70-80), Moron (IQ 50-69), Imbecile (IQ 20-49) and Idiot (below 20). I think the word retard will eventually join ranks with these past descriptors.

I understand the (ID) part dd is 10 and was diagnoised with MID.

I'm sure it will eventually. I'm just not seeing it in use here.

"I am smelling like a rose somebody gave me on my birthday deathbed..."



Not really a word, but that song annoys the fuck out of me.



Words...



Moist and pussy, they just gross me out.

I'm with you on this one.

wow, I use idiot, imbecile, and moron interchangeably. I never thought they sounded as sever as retarded.

I try to not swear. Does sometimes slip out though, lol. I don't think kids should have swearing constantly around them.

We don't cuss when my son is awake, I don't at all anymore, my dh is working on it.
We don't say: Hate, retard/ed, stupid, omg or oh my gosh (he says oh my goodness)
We also try to keep his 'potty words' under control (i.e. fart, poop, butt, etc...)



A lot of it is because he goes to a private school so if it's not allowed at school, it's not allowed at home. Because well he is 4 and he can't really differentiate that well...I also work at his school so it's a lot easier for me to enforce it as opposed to daddy who loves potty words. haha



But I just really don't like hearing little kids say they hate something, or "that's stupid". It makes me cringe.



eta: shut up is another one we don't use.
