Can we talk about avoiding use of "moron" casually? Similar to the related 'r' word, it has had clinical connotations and has been used to marginalize and other those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

This thread is for everyone to read and for disabled people to (mostly) participate in. [more inside]
