40. From his letter...

"You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult"

This is why using the word even to refer back to her is a problem. Most people outside of the disability community are not aware of this. Nor are they aware of the fact that it is a word that has been used in bullying incidents for a very long time. Just some info that explains further why this man wrote this letter.
