The “Give your word to prevent the word” or “M Word” Campaign was started in june of 2013. Its aim is to educate people about the “M” word and why it’s considered derogatory. More information can be found on this subject and on dwarfism throughout this page.
The idea is that by reading this information, people will become better informed on the preferred language in the little people community. Afterall, it’s not about being politically correct, it’s about being respectful of a group’s ideals.
If you have read this information and/or don’t condone the use of the “M” word as it relates to a little person, you are invited to take the “M Word Pledge” Linked to from this webpage. It is hoped that by doing so you will help educate others and share what you learned with others so they can do so too. Education can only come by informing, not forcing the issue, which is why this page has been created, for those who want to be educated. I have learned a lot and no longer approve of this language. How about you? If you’re with me, join our cause. All it takes is a simple sign and share.
