I think it’s okay to use the word, “fucktard.”


“Insert… Comment Here”

I posted this pic on a fun social media site and got this comment back, “great! except for the blatant ableism. bummer.”

Here’s why:

Not too sure, but “fucktard” is a replacement for the able-ism word that one might be referencing. “Tard (Latin-tardus) ROOT – slow a. tardy: moving slowly” and is used in this case as “in fuckers moving slowly to learn the values of women’s equality.” The term fucktard IS problematic in that it certainly harkens to the differently-abled term, but is also an appropriate mash of, “fucker” and, “tard” to create the meaning intended here.

I love language!
