Soldiers of the anti-R-word movement will be collecting signatures from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Great Hall from those who “pledge and support the elimination of the derogatory use of the R-word from everyday speech and promote the acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities.”
On Wednesday, at least 200 students plan to hold an anti-R-word rally at Winthrop High School….
When that word’s used, it’s a sign of ignorance…..
I agree; “retard” is often overused. Whatever happened to “cretin”, or “imbecile” or even “idiot”?
I’d say these people were effing retarded, except that some of them literally are.
