I see 'retard' in chat as an insult; it is bigotry and pushes away autistic players.
Insurgency compared to when I played league 6 years ago there are far less slurs, I've seen no one say fag or nigger in chat like then but think that's a low bar. There's also a lot less gay slurs compared to my corp in EVE but still I think the community could do better as a whole.
I'm ashamed of myself, I haven't really stood up for other people after hearing someone say retard or type in chat as an insult to put people down. I think we should start vote kicking offenders/start standing up for disabled players.
What I'm referring to is independent of calling yourself a retard if you make a mistake or to a friend but instead to purposefully harm. What are your thoughts?
