Spread the word to end the word.
It's the same thing, you know.
"I'm such a tard."
Really? You know what I just heard you say?
"I'm such a Kennedy."
"That was so retarded!"
I heard... "That was so Kellsey!"
The diagnosis of Down syndrome comes with a diagnosis of mild to moderate mental retardation.
It's a medical diagnosis.
It's NOT a word to be thrown around lightly, used to insult yourself or others.
If you don't MEAN to insult my girls by saying it, then don't use it.
End of story.
Take the pledge. End the word.
