Question from a fan:

Dear Brother Love,
I went out of town with two of my really good friends who happen to be a couple. After a long night of drinking they approached me to have a three-some. I would like to blame the alcohol, but they talk about three-somes sober too. Anyways, back to that night...they literally tried to convince me for hours it would be so fun and a great idea because we all care about each other already. Well, I told them this is a horrible idea and I'd never do it. On top of everything, while they were literally on top of me, we all work together! I'm all about being a team player and working closely with others, but this is waaaaay too hands on for my working environment. I'm also dating someone else, who wasn't invited to the roadshow...so isn't that kinda of disrespectful and cheating?! How can I convince them this is a HORRIBLE idea, horrible!!!
Love,
Chrissy from Three's Company

Loving the show as always, BroLo!

Just to give my two cents on intellectual disabilities vs. retarded.

I've been studying to be a speech therapist and have worked with both adults and children who fall under this category. We use the term intellectually disabled mainly bc 'retarded' was adopted into slang and has become very degrading and offensive towards certain people and/or behaviors. I guess it became so pervasive that the PC thing to do was re-label the term within the professional community. We were also taught the term "cognitively impaired", but I guess something was wrong with that too bc intellectually disabled is now the preferred term.

I've worked with disabled folks both in a gov home setting, (which is...upsetting like standards) as well as personal homes. Here in the states you can get what's called a PCA certificate. A personal care attendant certificate. This is seemingly for those who can smoke pot, but yet just enough to piss in a cup/ and/ or work with the handicapped.

It is my opinion that caring for disabled peoples is more important than being politically correct and humor-less...
