Yes Yes and Yes!

I'm such a fence sitter.
I'm a Libra.
Very much a frequent avoider of confrontation.
Wishy washy.

There are a few things, however, that can get this girl fired up.

Here is one! Click here to read a letter that makes me want to grab a sign and march. 

I live this EVERY day. I have loved MANY great folks in my life, some with disabilities. Okay, lots.
It's not too much to ask to just stop using the word.

Just don't use the word. And tell other people to stop it too.

Retard is an unacceptable adjective to describe something.
Regardless of how much of a point you want to put on it.

Just don't use the word.

I need that button, too. I didn't like that word when it was in our SPED vocab- MHMI, etc.
