Those pesky indefinite personal pronouns

It is offensive he assumes everyone knows what he means.  Why not Buddha?

  1. Offensive?
    In your view, how should it have been worded so as not to be offensive?..

  2. Put God's name. But I wouldn't put anything. It is retarded that people feel the need to profess their faith on a bumper sticker. It is trite.

  3. I wonder how the folks at CenterPoint Human Services would feel about your use of the word "retarded." Really?

  4. Maybe you can tell them. That would require you growing a pair. In addition, Center Point deals with mental health issues not mentally challenged people. It is an expression too. And I'm not on the board, but I do represent lots of people with mental health issues and who are cognitively challenged.

  5. Center Point certainly deals with "mentally challenged" people. Here is their mission statement: "CenterPoint Human Services manages the delivery of Medicaid and State-funded mental health, intellectual/developmental disabilities and substance abuse services through a network of providers." "Retarded" is an outdated and offensive saying. Do you think it is appropriate to use that word on social media? Is that a do or a dont? http://m.wxii12.com/news/dos-and-donts-of-social-media-posting/30368212

  6. You have too much free time, and who are you to anonymously question me?

  7. And the bulk of the money is for mental health services.
