THIS IS ABLEISM

*On Hiatus*

Ableism is a form of discrimination and social prejudice. Are you questioning whether or not something is ableist? Ask a disabled person, heck as multiple disabled people. Able bodied people, you do not get to decide what is ableist. The privileged never get to determine what qualifies as oppression. This blog will attempt to display disabled people's opinions on ableism. Submissions of ableism you have experienced or witnessed are welcome., and so are examples of ableism you have seen on social media sites. If you have taken a medication and/or visited a doctor and wish to submit a review, please feel free to submit that as well. There is a general tw for the content on this blog. If I neglect to put a trigger warning on something that needs it please let me know so I can fix it. I usually like to reblog a lot of the commentary on posts.

They haven’t posted anything outwardly ableist from what I’ve noticed but they tend to call everything they see as stupid or ridiculously funny ‘retarded’. They don’t have an ask box or submission box open so I can’t message them about their ableism. But I was wondering if neuroatypicals and disabled people could raise awareness about this blog to try to get them to quit called everything ‘retarded’ since it’s becoming really offensive slang and this teaches people that it’s okay.

This is really unacceptable, but unfortunately I’m not surprised. The whole premise of their blog is ableist considering even their url contains a slur. Thank you for submitting this.
