When you know yourself you only have yourself to answer to/for.

however, moron & idiot both used to mean exactly what retarded does, do i need to stop using those? or is that ok now because of the social justice statute of limitations? Whats the limitation on that? If we stop using "mentally retarded" for 20 years? if so, in 2037 or so, I say our 45th president was a total retard ?

That phenomenon is called the euphemism treadmill, all new terms to replace derogatory terms become derogatory themselves

I think he is actually describing the opposite, the movement of words from offensive or derogatory epithets into innocuous and toothless synonyms for "stupid"

well when a new term becomes derogatory the old terms lose their punch, yes

the answer is there is no answer. language is fluid and constantly changing, and symbols (like language) only have meaning when it is agreed upon. It's general consensus which changes the meaning of words and even so it's hard to get everyone to accept a new meaning. Who knows how long it took idiot to go from meaning a severely mentally disabled person to a stupid one. Also this happened before the modern era where we 1. have dictionaries which probably slow down the rate at which broadly accepted language changes and 2. actually care about offending or harming disadvantaged groups, and thus try hard to simply purge such words from accepted vernacular

I'm getting there!

my relationship to weed has been odd recently.

I'm not sure why, but I just never want to get stupid high anymore... or rather I take a few hits and I feel good enough, you know? I could get smacked if I wanted to, but I'm always like eh. I feel pretty good already, why smoke a fuck ton and then be tired in an hour?

i think idiot & etc were terms in the 1880s or early 20th century and by 1950 biff was calling mcfly a moron

i think creating enormous, unweildy terms is the key to stopping it. like "mental disability" but then these things change also handicapped was just dropped because handicapped people didn't like it & not because it was a slur or anything

its all very complicated. i liked retard & tard. paultard, trumptard, hilltards i mean it was all so easy

"idiot" is at least as old as 1606 when macbeth was written, as quoted somewhere above
