I saw someone say zenpencils is like the John Green of webcomics and lemme tell you if that doesn’t just hit the nail right on the head.
aight ill start using that :0 thx
is there a tag i should use when i reblog things abt ableism like. i use the #im white tag for when i post things abt racism i feel like there should be smth for ableism posts since im not physically or mentally disabled
saying that “stupid” or “dumb” is ableist is ableist in itself
you’re implying that all mentally and/or physically disabled people are stupid or dumb
No, we’re not. We’re saying that the modern concept of intelligence/IQ has been ableist (and racist) since it’s inception, and that by associating people’s negative actions with low intelligence, you are unknowingly playing into that system.
Also, until recently (like less than fifty years ago) words like idiot and moron were used by medical professionals and academics to designate people with low IQ’s, I.e. the mentally disabled.
When you call bigots, abusers, or problematic celebrities stupid or idiotic, you are associating them with the mentally disabled, and by extension associating mental illness with negative, harmful behavior, whether that’s your intention or not.
