dont get me wrong i totally fucking love how much tumblr is trying to bring awareness to bisexuality pansexuality and asexuality. but you know what else they need to bring to attention?
- people whose sexualities and romantic orienations dont line up
mCAT: So this happened.
Woohoo, trivialization of autism and general ableist fuckery! Dear god, if “on the spectrum” becomes the new “special” I’m going to blow a fucking fuse. (also, “I’m autistic and I’m not offended!” people, go here. Also here.)
And this should be the definitive proof of Hussie doing something that he knows will upset and hurt people and not giving a single flying fuck about it.
im fucking sick of you peope ignoring this fucking dont
can someone please explain to me how two Autistic people joking around about being Autistic is ableist, cause???????
like, i’d get it if it was someone who’s verbal making fun of someone who’s non-verbal or something like that, but literally just “hey, you’re Autistic, right?” “most definitely.” “yeah, me, too. plus i have other developmental disorders, but we should stop talking about this or someone might blow it out of proportion.” “those people are on a whole other level.” that’s basically what i got out of it??? maybe saying “on a spectrum of their own” wasn’t appropriate wording, but it wasn’t even Hussie who said that???
idk, it just reminds me of when that person drew a comic about how they felt about their body and being fat, and someone called them horrible and accused them of body shaming, when they were literally just talking about how they felt personally about themselves. or like, thinking of it another way, would you call someone who’s non-cis transphobic for making a “gender of the day” post??? probably not.
tbh, i saw these tweets awhile ago, and was really happy, because i kinda had a feeling that Hussie was on the spectrum, and i thought the way he worded it was funny. it was sort of just “oh, i was right!! he is one of us!! cool!!” and, like, Autism comes with some difficulties, but i wouldn’t say that someone who’s Autistic joking around about it is in any way “trivializing.” i mean, especially considering that in popular media, it’s portrayed as some horrible disease that us poor people suffer from, and like.. ?????? sure, it’s tough sometimes, but chill out a bit.
as for being “i’m Autistic and i’m not offended,” i’m really not offended at all. but if you’re offended, that’s fine. you’re entitled to your own emotions, and they’re totally legit. but i disagree with you on a fundamental level. i don’t see how this is ableist, except maybe that last comment made by Joey Comeau. i don’t see how it trivializes being Autistic, or in any way being on any spectrum, except, again, maybe with that last comment. however, as a fellow spectrumite, i acknowledge that you’re upset, and that maybe your experiences with being Autistic are different from mine, so maybe you see this differently than i do, and that’s fine. all i ask is that you acknowledge that maybe these people’s experiences with being Autistic are also different from yours, and so they react to and talk about it differently than you might. that doesn’t mean they’re wrong or being horrible and ableist about it. it just means they experience it differently than you, and feel comfortable joking around about it.
you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games
True story, one time I had downloaded this knock-off slender horror game on my x-box 360 because it had online multiplayer, and I thought it would be cool to play a horror game with other people through x-box live.
Well, the moment I had found a decently sized party and decided to use my mic, I knew it was a huge mistake. All the other players in the group were boys, an as soon as they heard I had a feminine voice, they INSTANTLY began degrading me with sexual slurs and generally just being rude ass, sexist mother-fuckers.
I didn’t really let it get to me, until they started saying “OH, BRO I BET THIS SLUT IS GONNA BE LIKE, THE FIRST PERSON TO DIE LOOOL”.
I can’t even begin to tell you how upset I was, but I didn’t quit the match. As soon as the game started, each an every one of my other party members began dying one by one, and all of them were all expecting me to be the next one to die. Unfortunately for them, they never got that pleasure. Half way into the round, I was the only team member left alive, and I had only one tape recorder left to find before we could win. All the guys within the voice chat were saying that there was no way a ‘girl’ was going to win, and that I would die before finding the final tape recorder.
Guess who ended up finding all seven of them on their own, and left everyone speechless at the end of the match.
Sometimes I think of how one tiny mutated cell can wipe out our whole civilization, but then I watch a video like this and think “nah, we’re way too awesome of a species to be defeated.”
I feel like my life is complete after watching this.
HOLY SHITTING CHRIST.HOW DOES HE MANAGE TO KEEP SUCH A GOOD TONE QUALITY. WHAT THE SHIT. I CAN’T. JUST.
Seriously, as somebody who is relatively good at the flute let me tell you that that is really fucking difficult. REALLY FUCKING DIFFICULT. That’s like the flautist’s equivalent of trying to talk normally whilst breathing in: it just isn’t doable. This guy is using some freaky fucking sorcery. As if that weren’t bad enough: HIS FINGERS ON THAT LAST BLOODY SCALE HOLY SHIT. HOW CAN YOU MOVE THAT FAST. I CAN’T EVEN DO F BLOODY MAJOR THAT FAST AND IT’S THE EASIEST BLOODY SCALE WE HAVE HOLY CHRIST.

here’s a dating tip
if your partner suffers social anxiety or is an introvert, do not force them to go out on a date or hang out with you. more than likely, being alone relaxes their anxiety and recharges their energy. so respect that. and don’t bug them about it or take it personally. you’ll make their anxiety worse or just end up making them feel guilty as shit.
this goes for friends too. don’t do that to your friends.Someone finally said it
