a British dictionary

? I also linked the Merriam–Webster and the Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English

The Oxford dictionary gives examples with dates.

That source doesn't even have a definition.

It's for etymologies, the year of origin, 1961, is the same that the others.

The Collins dictionary uses foolish: https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/shithead

Stuart Berg Flexner states: "Then in the 1870s, such terms as 'to fall in the shit' (to get in trouble) and the exclamation 'shit and corruption!' were recorded. Also in wide use between the 1870s and the 1890s were such seemingly modern terms as 'shit' and 'bullshit' meaning 'nonsense, rubbish, lies' (chicken shit' and 'horse shit' were recorded in the 1930s); 'the shits,'' diarrhea' ' hit pot' and 'shit face,' both referring to a contemptible person (followed by 'shit head' around 1915); 'to shit on someone,' to treat someone badly; and 'to beat the shit out of' someone. https://books.google.com/books?id=YelbTwLjnbEC&dq=both+referring+to+a+contemptible+person+(followed+by+'s+h+i+t+head'+around+1915)&focus=searchwithinvolume&q=shithead

to justify continuing to use an ableist slur

When I justified the use of any ableist slur?

after attacking someone for using another ableist slur

Which ableist slur? In what moment I attacked someone here for using an ableist slur?

reject all other sources

I didn't reject any source and I said if that word is a problem suggest another one. What I researched didn't point that and still any sources that have been presented gave me a better background of the word that those that I gave.

The A Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English: https://books.google.com/books?id=KT-cAQAAQBAJ&pg=PA273

The Oxford dictionary states:

Shit-head, an objectionable person. 1971 J. Michener in Reader's Digest Apr. 240 Again the girls were particularly abusive, taunting the guards, calling them ‘shit-heads’, ‘half-ass pigs’. 1979 P. Niesewand Member of Club viii. 56 You lying shithead!

It's a variant of "shit-face". The use as lack of intelligence it's not present in the original meaning of the word.

Edit: also the Online Etymology Dictionary states the same.

I'm already move on about this issue.

I was literally just adding an aside to your initial premise, not challenging it.

If you were a little more aware you would saw that cowards bigots downvoted my first comment the instant that I posted it. You are implying something that I never stated with a personal conclusion that is not the meaning of the word at all. If you have a problem with the word them suggest another one. I'm done with it.

Uh, me?

Who the fuck are you? When I ask for your condescending opinion?

ironically it makes you the bigot.

Lol, nice reverse discrimination meme.

I think is a pretty solid line of reasoning

I don't give a fuck about your shitty reasoning. The Oxford and the Merriam–Webster dictionary support what I already said, your opinion is baseless and I give a flying fuck about it.

you're being manipulative

You are who is commenting me with you baseless opinions and try to make look a mental disable like an ableist. Like if I need people to tell me what ableism is.

exert social power over others

lol, yeah asking people to not use words that discriminate me and those like me is about power. What next? Trans people here calling out transphobia is also about accumulate social power? XD

It's pretty clear

According to whom?

contents of the head, the brain/mind

So are you saying that bigots and despicable ideas and their products can't be compared to shit? How that is related with intelligence? The definition that I pointed doesn't state that so you are pulling shit of your ass.

apologize for coming out guns blazing to shut me down?

I'm a mental disable person who is speaking about their concern on a derogatory word to their kind and you are who is making baseless statements to cancel it.
