It's tough. I've been trying to do the same. "Dumb" and "lame" could be disability-related, too. I don't know if it's exactly disability-related or gender-related, but "fat" as an insult or "fat-ass," too. Like, I used to get angry at girls and the first thing I would think in my head would be "fat-ass."

Anyway, gg, Hannah! Changing speech habits won't break the world's chains, but it's a way of refusing to accept/tolerate discrimination. It's common courtesy, as well. Small things like this matter. Everyone can do small things. I think it's kind of bullshit that they don't. What are they waiting for? Other people?

It's like what Gandhi said~ Be the change you want to see in the world.

You inspired me to write a blog post about this, too, by the way!
