    Does it bother anyone else? I don't quite get the term. Are they special because they have some sort of special training or are they just 'special,' as in they're ******ed. Anyone got any input.

    In order not not offend those who are overly sensitive to the word "******ed", let's use "mentally challenged" or "dumber than a box of rocks".... :p

    It's not really insulting to ******ed people...it's insulting to people who aren't ******ed.
