Print I’m not going to say much about this as it’s not a word that’s actually used much over in the UK, and I do think some people have a tendency to get carried away about it. However, clearly the use of the word “retard” in a derogatory manner is to be discouraged, and in that spirit I encourage you to take a look at the Spread The Word website.
