The R Word

Here’s the bottom line: I can’t order you to not use the word “rape,” but I do want you to do me a favor before you use it again.

Before you jump back on the server, sit somewhere quietly and think for a moment. Reflect on what I’ve told you, and try to understand how raw and difficult it can be for someone to hear it. Imagine for a moment what it’s like to have game time, the thing you do to relax and escape from your troubles, interrupted by painful memories.

Ask yourself if a little word is worth making people not want to play with you.
