Retards and BDSM

Billy, who manages a group home for retarded adults (his words, therefore I can repeat them) had to write up an employee for the third time for keeping a client in restraints too long.

PG: Hey, how do you know the clients don't enjoy the restraints? Maybe they're into BDSM, but they can't articulate it, you know, because they're retarded. Maybe they act out so they can be restrained.

Billy: (laughing) Trust me, they don't enjoy it.

PG: Okay, well, I'm just putting it out there. They may like it. You just may have a whole house of retarded submissives on your hands just looking for opportunities to act out so they can be restrained. Oh, and you'd be their master. You're the master over a house of retards. Just sayin'.

Ok... congrats! I am submitting this for the strangest posting on a blog for the year 2006. Good luck! :)

Why am I even in MORE lust with you than before?

Somedays I feel like I'M the master of a house of retards.....for completely different reasons.

I would have to agree with trappedincolorado on this being the strangest post for 2006. You're the master over a house of retards.
I almost had Mt. Dew spew out of my nose! :D

trapped: *jumps up and down clapping widely*

You entered me in a contest and I didn't have to get naked? Color me excited!

HST:Somehow I'm thinking many of us do...

Jay: Is it my ability to mix retards and BDSM so effortlessly into a simple little post?

..and if you all think this is a strange post/conversation, well I hate to say this but, this is a typical conversation between Billy and I. In the course of the phone call that this was taken from we also discussed: gay sex, the 70's and gay sex, STD's, porn, drugs, going out, bath houses and how he and I would act and be different if AIDS and herpes were not a reality in this day and age and sex in the 60's and 70's....I think the phone call was about 40 minutes.

I DID live the 70s sex life...and it was spectacular! Asking a lady at a disco if she wanted to have sex was the equivelent to asking her if she wanted to play tennis! You would have loved it! Never heard of herpes. VD? Go down and get a penicillan shot. Oh well.. gone to never return.

man, I almost hate to write this but I HAVE TO.

I am a frequent rader and love your style. Your sit is priceless.

HOWEVER, I must take issue with the use of the word "retard". It's mean, hateful and completely demeaning.

I am the mother of THREE children with special needs, the oldest of whom is mentally retarded and autistic. He has the mind of a 4 year old and HE KNOWS that saying retard is a horrendous thing to say.

So please lay off that. With your limitless wit and scary smarts, certainly there is another world within your reach.

Don't be thinking "oh she's one of THOSE types" (easily offended, high and mighty, minivan driving bitches)

fuck NO. That ain't me.

But I am his mother and I tirelessly educate the world about what is right. And calling people retards IS NOT RIGHT.

I say this respectfully because I like your blog. I have ripped some people a new one over this. but you, I like.

So please....don't.

:)

and by the way, I myself, am not retarded.

Even though in my previous post, it appears that I cannot freaking SPELL...

Suz:
All comments are always welcome, so as always, I appreciate yours.

I apologize for any hurt, harm, or anger my post may have caused you. I would never intentially or want to accidently, hurt anyone, so I am truly sorry for my choice of words.

I work with special needs adults, and I met Billy while we were both working at a group home for special needs kids. I also have two brothers who have special needs in terms of learning disabilities and such, so I can appreciate, although, obviously not to the extent you can, appreaciate where you are coming from.

I have to say, I hesitated in using the word, retard and used the disclaimer at the top of the post to show that Billy was the one who actully used the word first, therefore giving me clearance to use it, however, I still understand that doesn't make it right.

I'm not sure if I can articulate this correctly in a comment format, but I call Billy and Nick fags, gays, ect. and I am lovingly referred to as a fag hag. However, if you or anyone else who doesn't have a close friendship with someone who is gay, then I take offense to when 'fag' and 'gay' is easily and frequently thrown around in a demeaning manner. I used this in the same way with the word retard. I'm not saying that is right, just trying to give an explantaion. (For using the word)


Where am I going with this babble?

In plain and simple language: I apologize for any offense my post, comment, and choice of words might have caused you and I will choose my wordage more carefully in the future.

I would also like to take a moment and commend you on not only being a mom of three, but also being the mom of three kids who have special needs. It takes a special woman with a huge heart, a warm home, lots of patience, and open arms for lots of hugs to be a mom of three, so my hat is off to you.

As always, all comments are welcome, even those that may warrant a kick in my ass and a knock upside my head, so thank you.
