not gonna yell people because they pick particular “words” to use though, but obviously the idea that someone is trying to express is fair game for criticism
my Opinion is that hardly anyone knows what they’re talking about when they use the word “ableist,” but there are probably other talking points of joyless scolds that you could focus on
i don’t tell people what words to use, but i don’t think you can get away from the fact that “smooth-brained” etc—despite lacking the extra-nasty historical character of “retarded”—gets at the same concept, the idea that someone who is mentally deficient deserves to be mocked for it. i am well aware that no human brains end up “smooth.” but because we are capable of interpreting language beyond its literal meaning, to say that someone’s brain is “smooth” is to say that it is deformed
caring only about the way a universal medium of culture impacts my tiny, egocentric soul is a very me thing to do. also i’d say the country i live in tacitly encourages this line of thinking. really i didn’t even write that post—george bush did
double as in “sabrina 2”
