Curious Statement / Retarded/ Moronic/ Just an Opinion

Sunday, July 25, 2010

 

Tonight my sister asked an old friend for an opinion. How did he feel about her natural look in comparison to her straightened hair? His response was, “You look more sophisticated and gentle…with straightened hair”

Sophisticated?

Gentle?

Ok I’ve heard the sophisticated shindig before but, gentle?

What does that have to do with it?

Ask your friends, which do they prefer. Make sure you asked an estranged person who is not likely to give a damn how you feel or think. Someone frank/ blunt/ honest.

Opinions guys and gals, raw and uncut I want them. Feel free to add your perspective into the mix as well!

Be sure to add a comment when you are finished and make sure you subscribe so that you can stay up to date as the discussion progresses.

    sorry, you lost me at retarded. did you really need to use a slur that mocks people with special needs. that word is really all wrong. you shouldn’t have to have a child with special needs to get what I am saying.

      sigh. no need to assume I’m knocking those who are mentally disabled or differently abled. please remember that the word retarded has been part of the english language way before its application to those with disabilities. in truth and in fact i was referring to the regressiveness of the comment in question. i am not mocking disabled human beings. what i did allude to however was the the root of the word retard which for all intents and purposes means to slow down, which is what the comment in question does. retard any advances that we make for ourselves with what could only be called ignorance.

      your assumptions were ignorant. and im not calling you stupid. you see ignorant simply means not knowing and has been around alot longer meaning that definition than it has been meaning stupid.

      thank you for visiting my blog.

      i did not intend to offend.

      xoxo
