Dumb Ass

Many consider people who don’t follow laws and think of all laws as dumb laws to be idiotic. People may especially call others dumb asses if they are dumb criminals that break the law in an obvious or stupid fashion. Some individuals may think that people who try dangerous stunts, don’t get good grades in school, make uninformed declarations or make certain decisions about their lives should be called by the derogative name. Although there is no dumb test for determining whether someone should be called a dumb ass, people often make their own judgments about whether someone should be called by the name. This means that individuals’ own value systems often determine who they view as being dumb asses.The word was often used by the character of Red Forman on “That 70s Show,” who often refers to his son Eric and his friends as “dumb asses” when they were doing something he thinks to be idiotic based on his own values as a war veteran and hard-nosed father and boss. Like the character of Red, people in society often use dumb ass negatively, to make others feel bad about themselves.

The nickname or noun dumb ass is often meant to make people being called the name feel like they are below their name callers in educational level or social status. People who have committed stupid acts or said nonsensical things may laugh at being called dumb asses, especially if the individuals calling them that are their friends. They may return the favor when their friends do something that their group of friends or society views as being stupid. Although dumb ass can be a playful term used between friends, it can also hurt somebody’s feelings if it comes from a person he doesn’t know very well or doesn’t respect. People need to be careful when using the word “dumb ass” because it can be just as hurtful as calling someone “stupid” or “unintelligent.”
