For Those Who Think It Doesn’t Matter…

Posted by stopsayingretard on January 6, 2012

A recent comment we recieved;
“Someone pinned one of my disabilities advocacy pins on Pinterest and changed the comment underneath to be derogatory.  After commenting back and forth, he turned around. He said that he did a  Goggle search on “retard” and was disgusted by what he saw.  I did the same thing on YouTube, Google and Razzle and became angry, sad, digusted and sickened by my results.  This has become such a part of our culture and needs to stop.”

What do you see when you do a search for “retard” on the Internet?  Does it make you angry, sad, disgusted, sickened?

What are you going to do about it?
