Dear Friends. 

After a recent interaction online, during which a post was made depicting an individual with Downs Syndrome, as well as the unacceptable words 'You are a special kind of RETARDED, aren't you' across the front of it, I did a GIF search with the word 'retarded.'

The results were heartbreaking. Children, adults - almost all references making fun of real human beings in the most unacceptable, hurtful, derogatory manner.

It struck me that individuals using those GIF's goes 'against the Facebook Community Rules,' yet they are available on the very platform which prohibits them.

Please sign this petition and add your voice to the Request for Facebook Head Office to PERMANENTLY remove all mocking, disgusting, hurtful content such as these GIF's from their social media platform. 

Sincerely, 

Heidi Smit Vinois
