Why is it bad to use "retard"?

It's not like I am using it to make fun of people with disability. People called me this throughout my entire high school life, even though I'm not disabled. So I learned the word is okay, from my classmates.

Update:

"There's never a time you'll use it and people are going to be impressed with what you have to say." I didn't say people will be impressed if I said it.

    Bet you didn't like when people called you that so you shouldn't call others that. Just perpetuating the bullying does nothing to improve the human condition.

    Although I don't give a damn what words you use, I'll say it's not a very classy word in general. There's never a time you'll use it and people are going to be impressed with what you have to say.

    Are you Caucasian? If so, would it be ok to call you n-gger?

    The fact that people use this ugly word for people who do not have this disability does not make it okay.
