Doing some searching for the blog this morning, I came across another blog, The R-Word Reporter. This woman and mother has taking to blogging to let the world know that using the R-Word is NOT acceptable. She reports on movies and TV shows that are using the R-Word and describes how it is hurtful and why it should not be used.
Once you have read the R-Word Reporter, head over to www.r-word.org and take the Pledge to END the WORD!
