Oh come off it.
Some people are
stupid. Someone has to be at the bottom of the bell curve
. You can say, "but they have a lovely nature
" or, "they are very skilled with their hand
s" or "but they are so pretty
" as often as you like, but it still won't skip over they fact that they are stupid
. Dull witted. Lacking in understanding. Lacking in sense. Not clever. Slow.
Telling someone they are stupid may not be polite
, or kind
or socially acceptable, but what if it's the truth? Calling someone out of earshot stupid: is that acceptable?Should we say intellectually challenged
, and mention a learning disability
Stupidity is not the same thing as ignorance
, nor has it anything to do with being poorly educate
