Oh thank you, I definitely got your meaning, it's just one of those words we're not really supposed to use anymore, because people have used it so many times as an insult to say someone is less than human, when really they are still fully dignified human beings in spite of their disability! Those of us with close family or friends with disabilities are probably so much more sensitive, but it's how we spread awareness! The R-word definitely quickly conveys meaning that you're talking about someone with mental disability, but at the same time you're also saying he is less of a person unfortunately. I don't believe the Romulan wanted to die but just did not want to accept the Klingon donation. I'll have to rewatch that whole episode! Maybe Worf was still going to refuse, I am doubting myself now. But even if I don't like Worf's decision I still have to respect his right to make that choice and not to judge him for it, and I feel Captain Picard did such an amazing job keeping his perspective. And the Romulan did die in the end.
