I just wanted to note that in the States, 'spastic' is no more a slur then schoolchild insults. I didn't know it was a slur, and I'm started to learn that most Americans don't know it as such. I think this is just a difference in culture, not outright ignorance.
Hmm… Okay well that does change things. Still pretty ironic though, considering it’s a song about questionable language use.
Yep i didnt know it was a slur either
