Be like Roger Ebert and Danny Woodburn
Dwarfs, Little People and the M-word on RogerEbert.com
Woodburn is a little person, and he was upset by a word Ebert used, in a review, in reference to people with dwarfism. Woodburn comes on strong, saying that Ebert was taking away people's humanity by using a hate word. Ebert could've used this as an excuse to get angry or defensive or double down. In fact, you might've expected Ebert to be a bit haughty, since he was a Pulitzer Prize winner and also the best-known film critic in the world. Instead, though, Ebert listens. The two have a real, meaty conversation. Ebert explains he didn't know the word was considered offensive, and he ends up saying "I will retire the word...right here and now."
Be like Danny Woodburn: if you have a problem with something someone has been saying, speak up about it (if you feel safe to do so).
And be like Roger Ebert: be willing to talk and to listen.
Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons should be moved to Wikipedia:Living people. The policy does not just apply to "biographies", and the misleading title confuses newbies and even experienced editors.
