Would like to hear from both within and outside the community about something that upsets me: I hate seeing REEEEEEE as mockery every time I’ve seen it over the years. It comes across like an ugly stereotype, and even at best it’s mocking the target for being overwhelmed by distress over something.

But I haven’t come across anyone else trying to shut that down, the way using the word retard is now unacceptable. Am I overreacting for calling people out over this?
