So I used the r-word to display how childish my close friends were acting. A nearby little girl, she was five, stood up and walked over to me, with tears in her eyes she asked me to stop my use of this word, her best friend was handicapped, and also had a mental disability. I cried and told her how sorry I was.

The R-word doesn't describe this guy; amazing does! I could never do enough to repay him for the ways he's bettered me as a person, and it all started with his dad calling out my use of the R-word and making me aware of how hurtful it can be to someone so irreplaceable!
This isn't really my story, but my mom's. She spent her life with a cognitively and developmentally disabled brother who was called names his entire life. She decided it would stop with her and we were never allowed to call anyone the 'r' word when I was a kid.

I just didn't have anyone care about me, but when I get involved in Special Olympics, I made friends there who that didn't care about how I am, or what kind of disability I had. All they cared about was, would I be their friend, no matter what.

Sometimes I wonder why people hurt other people's feelings and stuff.
I have learned to not get "crazy" about it when someone uses that word I just simply ask them to not say it.
I was raised to treat everyone equally and to be open minded and accepting towards others, so I always felt like I was cautious of the words that I used in every day life, especially the R-word.
My 4 y/o son has autism. Before his diagnosis I used the r-word & never thought much about it. I wasn't directing it towards people with actual disabilities, so what was the harm?
I very recently used the "R" word in conversation with my sister-in-law, mother to my special needs nephew. She very nicely, unfortunately in tears, told me how offensive it was to her.
