"from each according to ability and to each abiding to need is an ableist idea" is now a take I've read this morning

why is it that no one knows what fucking ableism means I swear to god

please consider the implications of what you're saying if you're implying disabled people are actually drains on society who can never do any useful work, ever

there are of course disabilities and conditions that preclude doing a whole lot of things, and even those that yes, need to be taken care of rather than being able to provide for others.

but this is why you need to consider that "disabled" is an incredibly heterodox group. it's not a group that you can just vaguely gesture at when talking about ableism

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet ...did they not read the part of the phrase "according to their ability" smdh

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet way back in like December 2018 someone was saying that on here and dank and I were trying to correct her but she was adamant that that meant communists are going to force disabled people to work

@georgespolitzer I cannot even begin to tear down how wrong that idea is, let alone the condescending implication that disabled people have no agency and don't want to contribute to anything bigger than themselves

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet d-do they think that's the exact same statement as the variation "who does not work shall not eat" cause there's a *very* heckin big difference there

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet if we required basic reading comprehension to participate in  discourse  then, well, then i'd be out, but that's probably no big loss

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet do you think they just mixed up the order of the words?

This honestly feels like someone seeing a stopsign and going “that is telling me to speed up”

This goes beyond a lack of reading comprehension
