How many times do I have to say this?

It is not okay to use the r-word.

 

it is not okay to use the r-word.

 

It is not okay to use the r-word.

 

It is not okay to use the r-word.

 

It is not okay to use the r-word.

 

IT IS NOT OKAY TO USE THE R-WORD!

 

There is no situation--not a single one--where it is okay to use the r-word. No, it doesn't matter if the person you're slinging it against has no disability. You are still insulting people with disabilities and stigmatizing disabilities with your implications. You are doing the sort of harm that gets people killed and you are scum of the earth.

 

How many times do I have to say it? You have absolutely no leg to stand on, calling other people bullies when you perpetrate the sort of ableism that gets people--often children--viciously bullied, abused, and even killed. Do not make me have to break out the statistics, because they're really fucking ugly.

 

Do not make me have to say this again, because I will seriously go Hulk Smash on your asses.

 

HULK SMASH!
