Several, apparently 4, years ago I participated in a grassroots kind of education, attempting to eliminate the use of the word "retarded". While that is not something aimed at me I consider it close enough. I have cognitive problems, lots of them right now. And there's not a lot of difference between that and "crazy" "mental" "psycho" "I'm SOOOOOOOOO bipolar hehehe" "schizo" etc. All of these things exist because of brain abnormalities.
So, even though I'm a bit late in the day, please think about this today. If you want you can follow the link and sign a pledge. I was just there and they have well over 200,000 signatures.
