A very powerful reason not to use the word "retard"

Friends, please check out the post I wrote on my blog, "Can the word retard kill? This murder might convince you." It's a horrifying story, and it makes you understand how demeaning words such as "retard" spread hate that can lead to harm.


  1. Wow.

    Did you see this phenomenal video by a girl who has a brother with autism and DS?

  2. Thanks for sharing this. Your full post was a really hard, but necessary read and I shared it on Facebook as another reminder to my friends about why I'm such a hard ass when it comes to using hurtful, offensive language like the r-word.

  3. Hearing the word "retard" is just soo rude.

  4. There are no words to describe how upset and angry that made me feel. Why are people so cruel and hateful to one another??

  5. Again, I blame not controlling our survival instincts.


Thanks for sharing!
