Would you use any kind of slur to degrade yourself or insult someone or something else? Chances are if you're a decent human being - you wouldn't.
So why is it okay to use the word "retard" as an insult?
March 7, 2012 is officially Spread the Word to End the Word Day and if "retard" is part of your vocabulary, I urge you to stop & think about what the word implies.
I won't say any more. But please take time to watch any (or all) of the videos. They explain it far better than I can. Especially the one below by my blog pal Ellen of Love that Max - Her boy Max is pretty awesome :)
