The “R” Word

Earlier this week, Children’s Brian Skotko, MD, MPP, Clinical Genetics Fellow, wrote a blog about how some enthusiast of the film,  Avatar, have taken to calling themselves Avatards. He reflects on how the use of this term resembles another that negatively reflects people with disabilities.

Skotko appeared Thursday night on ABC World News to discuss the use of the “R” word.

That news piece was also a source for The View’s “Hot Topics” yesterday morning.
