tumblr “jokes” that are ableist and need to stop

princessskittybot:

ok so i see post with “jokes” like this going around a lot, often without the op/reblogger realizing they’re probably hurting people. so ive made a post explaining why some of these jokes are hurtful

  • mocking people for bad spelling/grammar (learning disabilities can already make school a hellish experience for people who struggle with this kind of thing. we dont need you to call us out)
  • not explaining jokes/references because someone’s confusion is funny (people with cognitive/learning disabilities often feel like they’re the only person who doesnt understand social cues/”normal” behavior. we spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to pass as “normal”. being belittled because you failed to understand something that all the “normal” people get is one of the worst feelings imaginable)
  • making fun of/insulting people for not liking popular foods (sensory issues can make the smells/taste/textures of certain food incredible overwhelming/unpleasant. its not uncommon for people with autism or similar disorders to be picky eaters because of this. again, we’ve already been made fun of for it, we dont need you to remind us how weird and freakish we are)

today a doctor told me i needed to Learn Social Skills because Everyone Has Them It Is A Fact Of Life and then kept asking me if i knew what words meant and then covered his face and asked me if he had any facial hair because he wanted to make a point (the point was if you dont constantly look at someones gross old man beard face you are a bad person apparently)

also he said that me needing familiar surroundings to eat was not an autistic thing because he knows plenty of “young people with autism”

oh yeah also he kept calling me a young lady and oh my GOD shut U
