R word means retard
When you hear someone say the R-Word or other ableist language (e.g., stupid, crazy, lame, etc.,.), engage with them in a discussion about the history of the word(s) and why these words can be hurtful. You can share that you are taking this class and share what you’ve learned with them. Or, even if you do not hear someone using ableist language, you can start a conversation/discussion that is about more than the R-Word. You can go into other topics we’ve covered in class (e.g., sexuality and family life issues, police treatment of people with disabilities, medical professionals’ treatment of people with disabilities, voting rights, history of disability, etc.,.). You can have this discussion with a family member and/or friend. The idea is to get talking about the issues with someone who didn’t take this class. Then, you are to write a 1-2 page reflection paper describing the conversation and your reactions to it.
