When Wash and Simmons start their… thing… the safeword is (much to Simmons’ chagrin) “safeword.”
when he was with deidara obito was like a 30 year old man constantly picking on a 19 year old. i want u to think about that. nagato had to tell him to tone it down one time in canon. obito uchiha is an asshole
His crime is now canon

Been waiting a year to post this.
I work at a theater and we just got these I cannot believe this
why does glitchbunny think that calling bad people stupid and calling them idiots is ableist i dont understand
i’m going to assume you didn’t really intend on me giving an actual answer but it’s in my tag so i guess i’m going to give you one? general trigger warnings in the links for ableism, eugenics, rape, medical rape, murder, torture, abuse, just to be on the safe side of things.
first of all, here’s a good guide to understanding what words are ableist and what kind of disabilities they refer to. If you don’t already know, autistichoya is an absolute great resource for understanding ableism, and if ableism is something you care about, i’d definitely recommend reading her entire blog.
here is another tumblr user’s words on the subject, but they have moved blogs and have not listed their new url so i can’t give them credit for their words, but they are good words.
Words such as cretin, idiot, imbecile, moron, and retarded are a bit different from the word stupid because they are words that have come from the medical community to describe us. I hope you at least know the absolute horrors we have faced for thousands of years, and are continuing to face, in terms of medical treatment, but if you don’t i can give you information on that subject later.
This is an image taken from a Sept. 28, 1913 New York Times article, which plainly shows these words being used to described disabled people. And here is another image depicting the “functioning levels” these words refer to.
Not using intelligence based insults is not a fringe tumblr movement. It’s a widely accepted thought in the disability rights movement that we should not be using these words to insult others (especially abled people we find undesirable), because their definition is what we are.
also sorry i’m going to cet this short because i had a small seizure a little more then an our ago and i really can’t do words right now but here are some more links to stuff i and other people have writen that are good discussions on ableist words and the ableism in intelligence/ but i’ll answer any questions you have a out this tomorrow
here is a good explaination by tumblr user nervousvirgin of why pointing out the ableism in our words matters instead of fighting “real ableism” in response to that “ableism is not a list of words” post.
here is an introductory ask i answered about how intelligence as it self is a very ableist concept in our society.
here is a post that i and another tumblr user commented on that has to do more with the “but it’s ableist to say that intelligence based insults are associated with disabled people” (it’s not. we weren’t the ones who gave our selves these words. they were given to us to label us as les then human).
that’s it really. i can’t make you not use ableist language and i can’t make you get rid of your internal bigotries. that’s up to you. just know that whne you’re using intelligence basked insults what you’re doing is contributing to the notion that to be those things is insulting, and to exist as disabled people exist is worthy of shaming someone form.
ok thank you for this ill check it out later but i an not allistic so im going to reclaim them
ye i know you’re autistic that’s why i even attempted to teach you our history because too many of us give abled people passes to say shit and harass other disabled people when they shouldn’t.
and reclaimation only works for calling yourself those words, not for calling other people those things as an insult. i’m not entirely sure what you mean exactly by reclaiming them but it’s important to note that, especially since ther ehaeve been other younger kids attempting to tell me they can use these words to insult people because they’re disabled themselves, and slurs don’t work that way. all you’re doing is continually perpetuating ableism and the abuse of disabled people/.
like you could call yourself a retard or stupid if you wanted to because they’re yours to reclaim, but the moment you call someone else a retard or stupid, you’ve crossed the line into perpetuating ableism instead of reclaiming ableist slurs that are used against you.
it takes some time to really stop using ableist language and you’ll always be learning how else ableism as affected our language for the rest of your life because ableism is so engrained in our society it’s extremely difficult to get away from ti. but changing your language and changing how you insult people is an extremely simple way that everyone can do that can actually really help make a change in the general treatment of disabled people.
not much how about you??
i’ve been looking for this amv EVERYWHERE since i saw it as an honorable mention at AX!!! all about this
