Casual homophobia
Tyler Hedrick

It is so true that we don’t think about the actual meaning of some of the words we use. For example, I hate it when people say something is “retarded” or call someone a “retard.” While retarded may just mean stupid to some people, it can also mean a mental disorder. Mental retardation is a disorder that can affect intellectual function, language development, social skills and self care skills. Calling someone a retard or saying something is retarded can be really offensive, especially to people with disabilities.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
