I’ve recently became aware of the “words hurt” campaign which raises awareness on our everyday language and how the words we are using may be hurting others. We’ve become so numb to the words we use and this campaign is a great way to bring this issue to light. “That’s so gay” “That test raped me” “This class is retarded” are just some of the many slurs people use without thinking. The fact is, using these terms in a negative context, even if we don’t mean for them to be negative, is still hurtful to others and it’s time to stop. Join me, and the many others, in eliminating the negative slurs from our everyday language. Be a catalyst for change and stand up to words that hurt.
