The "r" word
I am not a fan of making/trying to make people feel uncomfortable.
But there comes a time after the third or fourth experience then it begins to p*ss me off, and I will indicate it.
I know it just flows sometimes and people say things like, "It was so ret@rded." and for the most part I will let it pass. But it is duly noted in my memory.
But when it becomes evident that its a standard word in your vocabulary and you use it often...
you have just succeeded in getting me angry. So if you all of a sudden wonder why your followers are lower, this might be a hint to you as to WHY!
The word is offensive, especially when used in the text that you use it. It is a derogatory remark. Perhaps you might want to read up on it here. Or maybe look for where your blog was on our blog, and you'll notice its been replaced!
Again, generally I don't say anything....but this time I am!
