Charlotte has a favor to ask.
You know that word that people sometimes use when they do something foolish or think something is stupid? You know, the one my mom refers to as the "r-word?"
Can you do me a favor, and please not be a person that says it. You see, that word HURTS. It hurts me, my friends who may also have a bonus chromosome, and everyone who loves me. There are so many other things you can say. Silly, foolish, heck even stupid (though my mom doesn't let us say this one is our house, so my big brother and sister changed it to "stu" instead...they think they are so smart!) is better.
One more thing, make sure you tell your friends about my important message, the more people that realize how hurtful this word is, the better.
I really appreciate it. Thank you.
