There was not much reasoning that night after I had a few to many.

Yes, we all have varying degrees of intelligence. Is that your point?

I think Wikipedia has a good definition but I was wondering if we could expand on it to include other disorders like antisocial personality disorder.

Intellectual disability (ID), also known as general learning disability,[2] and mental retardation (MR),[3][4] is a generalized neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by significantly impaired intellectual and adaptive functioning. It is defined by an IQ score under 70 in addition to deficits in two or more adaptive behaviors that affect everyday, general living. Once focused almost entirely on cognition, the definition now includes both a component relating to mental functioning and one relating to individuals' functional skills in their environments. As a result of this focus on the person's abilities in practice, a person with an unusually low IQ may not be considered intellectually disabled. Intellectual disability is subdivided into syndromic intellectual disability, in which intellectual deficits associated with other medical and behavioral signs and symptoms are present, and non-syndromic intellectual disability, in which intellectual deficits appear without other abnormalities. Down syndrome and fragile X syndrome are examples of syndromic intellectual disabilities.

I do not see a problem talking about it but I do think some people may find it to be politically incorrect or taboo for one reason or another.

You can talk about persons with mental and learning disabilities all you want. They probably welcome a well thought out and respectful discourse. Just be respectful and not oversimplify those individuals afflicted with these life long conditions.

First and foremost, recognize that retardation is an obsolete stigmatization that should be avoided like the N word in any situation regarding African Americans as people, individuals, and a collective culture.

See what I mean? Keep it in context.
Finally the reasoning of RL is put in context. Laughing

@reasoning logic,
If you talk about it badly, then it is bad.

(It's good and probably even needed to talk about it if you are not insulting anyone)
