Objection to term sugar daddy

Dear Editor,

Re: Lessons for life 

I object to the term "sugar daddy." Just what are you talking about? 

Are you saying that in reference to the case of violence against the woman in the incident, that the victim was to blame for seeking out someone to be with? 

Or as you are putting it, to provide for her? 

If this is what you're inferring by that statement then I'm a bit concerned with the logic that underpins your argument... 

Further, I don't like the use if the term "retarded", it's a bit old fashioned and insensitive to people of physical and or mental challenges. 

I have a relative who lives with cerebral palsy and I'm very proud of him. He has achieved more than most people!
