There are so many descriptive words in the English language to choose from, there is just no reason to use these words in such a way that may offend someone with certain conditions or traits. You never know who you will hurt with your words. Obviously, there is freedom of speech in this country, so you can say whatever you want. If you know your audience and want to say these things, go for it. If you are in public, and you choose to say them,  just be aware that some people just may think you are a dick!
