Op-Ed Placement: Instead Of “Spread The Word To End The Word” Just Don’t Be A Jerk

This isn’t a anti-social justice rant, this is simply a message for humanity, a message people don’t seem to have a firm grasp on. The message is this, if someone wants to be a jerk, no amount of flashy PR campaigns will be able to fix that at all, just deal with it. Now, how about some context…

I was walking through the grocery store and noticed a high school aged kid wearing an “spread the word to end the word shirt.” For those of you that have never heard of this campaign, let me explain it; this is an effort to stop people from using the word retard in everyday conversation, primarily as an insult, as it is offensive to mentally handicapped people. DUH, as if anyone needs to be told using derogatory and rude language isn’t common sense enough.
