if you think that coercively locking people up for harmless behaviors you think are weird isn't ableism, I invite you to read literally anything about the history of mental institutions

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet i get like being extra as a joke if you’ve had experiences being institutionalized or with severe mental illness bordering on the need to seek that sort of help but to just fling that shit around as if being sent to a psych unit is a mild intervention for weirdos is extremely sad and disturbing

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet like Jesus Christ dude, that exact thing *actually happened* to nearly every Beatnik woman

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet to say it to people on the spectrum, even, is such an added layer too given how autistic people have been historically subjected to forcible institutionalization and straight up eugenics.
