The word “retard” or “retarded” — which I’ll refer to from here on as the R-word — is horribly offensive to people with intellectual disabilities. I hate the word, and I regret there was a time in my life when I ignorantly used it as slang to insult people.
Someone with disabilities is extremely close to me. I’m not going to tolerate it on my server and will use this platform to educate those who will listen.
It’s degrading. It’s dehumanizing and impacts the lives of those with disabilities more than you could ever imagine.
From this moment forward, I will ban you on the spot. It does not matter who you are or if you have donated. I don’t want to see it and I will rid myself of it on this server.
