spread the word to end the word r-word
Today is the Spread the Word to End the Word Campaign.

The label “retard” or “retarded” used to be the acceptable term to call someone with intellectual disabilities.  But over time, our culture has turned it into a derogatory term meaning “stupid” or “dumb.”

When you use the R-word, you are taking part in labeling a group of people as “dumb” and “stupid” because they are different.

Please stop using the R-word.

And share this post to support ending use of the R-word.
