Erasing the R-word is a huge deal to me. People are born of all shapes and sizes. There's no definite way of how one should look or been seen. Everyone is made differently. SO what? Who cares? The r-word is derogatory and rude not to mention mean. How would you like it if you were called retarded? How would you like it if someone called someone you loved that? Think about it. It would sting.
There's no need for the word. It's just mean.
The R-Word has to go!!
