Rooster Teeth is full of wonderful people who have always shown great consideration for their fans and have helped the disabled community via the ALS bucket challenge BUT-

Unfortunately, Rooster Teeth also has many of their videos filled with the ableist R-slur "retarded." This word is used to make out the mentally disabled as an insult and is extremely harmful to the disabled community (it's the disabled equivalent to using the word faggot.)

All we ask is that the staff at Rooster Teeth please stop using this word. This isn't a call for them to become any more "PG" this is a call for them to become a safer and more welcoming place for the mentally disabled.

Please cease use of the ableist R-slur (retarded) in your videos. This word is used to make out the mentally disabled as an insult and is extremely harmful to the disabled community (it's the disabled equivalent to using the word faggot.)

All we ask is that the staff at Rooster Teeth please stop using this word. This isn't a call for them to become any more "PG" this is a call for them to become a safer and more welcoming place for the mentally disabled.
Thank you.
