Stop font from displaying bold in terminal.

I just switched my urxvt font from terminus to artwtiz-fonts drift, is there any way I can stop bold characters from displaying? They hurt my eyes.

The line in my ~/.Xdefaults is:

Thanks in advance.

From the manual page:
boldFont: fontlist
italicFont: fontlist
boldItalicFont: fontlist
The font list to use for displaying bold, italic or bold italic characters, respectively.

If specified and non-empty, then the syntax is the same as for the font-resource, and the given font list will be used as is, which makes it possible to substitute completely different font styles for bold and italic.

If unset (the default), a suitable font list will be synthesized by "morphing" the normal text font list into the desired shape. If that is not possible, replacement fonts of the desired shape will be tried.

If set, but empty, then this specific style is disabled and the normal text font will being used for the given style.
ought to do the trick, one thinks.
