Hi guys, i've joined this community only to ask this question.
I came across a thread on the breastfeeding community titled "help my daughter nurses like a spaz" i was immediately shocked and offended at the use of the term and replied saying so, however is seems that i'm the only person that thinks like this.
I live in the UK and work in a primary school where there are a number of children with learning difficulties and physical impairments and over here the term spaz or spastic just isnt used anymore and i know that many of our parents would be deeply upset and offended if there child was reffered to in this way.
Is this just a British thing? Is the term spaz considered acceptable elsewhere in the world?
