I think that people looking to someone like Jon (a comedian) to be politically correct is a bit silly to begin with.
I’m all for not offending people. I mean, I actively attempt to be as inoffensive as possible on videos and on social media, but I also think people tend to overreact to things like that. I think there’s a nice middle ground to being considerate to others, and telling other people what they should or shouldn’t be allowed to say.
All that being said, no I don’t use the word retard or retarded, though I have in the past. I don’t personally put a lot of value in words (sticks and stones, and all that jazz), but for the sake of others, I do my best. I want to make people happy because making people happy makes me happy.
