What is it with shitty tryhard blogs and denying easy bullshit
Really starting to understand why there’s a group dedicated to “eradicating autistics” now.
okay I guess you’ll need a clear and supported explaination
Autism Speak is a ableist…
Notice that your response isn’t the hyperbolic, inflammatory diatribe the other one was. That in and of itself suggests you acknowledge my criticisms of froakies presentation (though not intent) was indeed valid. Now let’s get cracking;
Imagine there’s a magic button. This button cures autism and eradicates the condition now everyone that has it now. Everybody lives, everyone’s essentially the same person they are now. Do you press this button? You’re suggesting now, you wouldn’t. Why? What’s wrong with preventing the condition?
Nobody will outright say feeling compelled to kill a child is ever warranted, however it needs to be kept in mind those few seconds of a video was part of a larger narrative of a woman who cares for an autistic child. All day. Every day. This comes with a set of challenges and no doubt puts a strain of pressure most of you, autistic or not, will probably never experience. Hopefully no. This video is being presented by some people as a woman seemingly annoyed with her a defective, unwanted annoyance, and wishing she could just kill it. This is extraordinarily deceptive, since you’re (knowingly or not) removing the entire context from the remark. Since you people tend to cherrypick choice sentences and phrases I’ll stress again; in no way is her remark anything other than horrifying. However, keep in mind that it’s not being presented as anything other than horrifying, and it’s one part of a larger, more complex story. Not the callous remark of a woman wishing she could just be rid of a nuisance.
I’ll also stress, again, that when referring to the video, common sense dictates you then show people the video since, one more time, the way it’s presented by some people removes most/all context. And thus comes across as suspect.
"Imagine there’s a magic button. This button cures autism and eradicates the condition now everyone that has it now. Everybody lives, everyone’s essentially the same person they are now. Do you press this button? You’re suggesting now, you wouldn’t. Why? What’s wrong with preventing the condition?"
autism isn’t a “condition” it literally is how the brain is WIRED this “magical button” would literally change the content of a person’s because when the brain is wired differently, perception itself changes, therefore changing the person. Essentially, it would get rid of the person altogether because changing the perception of someone changes how that person acts, it would literally be the death of their personalities to a new, neurotypical one, and that is why the idea of “curing autism” is terrifying for people. You have no idea how autism works
and I don’t care if her “life was hard”. You know who’s life is hard? the child who is threatened by being mercy killed by her own damn mother because “oh man it’s too hard” lol. Autistic children are constantly killed by their parents and people don’t give a shit because “oh man poor hard life for the parent of the autistic” that is why it’s disgusting it does not matter the context
if you google “autism mercy killing” you will see this shit is SUPER COMMON because no one is taught about autism or how to raise autistic children and accommodate them, they are taught constantly about how autism is a “burden” and “death” of a child, this is why the killings happen and this is why reducing it to a “curable disease” actually harms people
Neurological disorders aren’t conditions? C’mon with this shit. Tell me, to what degree do you deny autism is in any way a form of disorder. The children in that infamous video, do they have no issues to be dealt with? Behavior therapy, is this also an oppressive system to stifle the autistic? It’s changing the autistic to a fairly large degree, is this another, subtler form of eradication?
"Google autism mercy killings"? Sure why not, it’ll ONLY TAKE 2 SECONDS LOL and god knows you can’t be bothered to actively back any of your rambling bullshit. Lets see, 1…2…ok here’s one where an autistic had killed someone else so we’ll skip that… ok here’s one that’s referring to one of those first ones…you know fuck this. I can sit there and google any hyped up stories and prove anything is "super common" if I deliberately seek out to do so.
What I’m noticing here is a pattern of hearsay and anecdotal evidence, and you know what? I wanna use some too! Ever hear of a movie called “Autism is a World?” Woman by the name of Sue Rubin made is. Sue’s an adult with autism and has said- get this shit- "low functioning people are just trying to get through the day without hurting, tapping, flailing, biting, screaming, etc. The thought of a gold pot of a potion with a cure really would be wonderful". Holy fuck, straight from the autistics mouth! Ah don’t worry, that’s probably a fluke. For shits and giggles, though, I think I’ll GOOGLE FOR TWO SECONDS and see what els- oh wow holy shit! Did you ever hear about this site "Wrong Planet"? Wow, it appears to be an… entire forum dedicated to autism?! Oh well, what the fuck is this?! http://www.wrongplanet.net/postxf235025-0-15.html&sid=6c3f288b68547816dba6c1d9a58d576f
Froakie… Froakie what the fuck?! Why is this actual autistic pro cure?! WHY THE FUCK ARE SOME OF THEM AGREEING FROAKIE?! THIS ISN’T WHAT YOU SAID IT WOULD BE AT ALL!!!! W-well I’m sure it’s a fluke.. maybe HOLY FUCK THEY’RE DOING IT AGAIN!
Froakie… it’s like every fucking time, it’s nearly evenly split. Froakie you fucking liar, this wasn’t nearly as cut and dry as you said it was! Froakie, “how autistic” are you, actually? How far down that spectrum are you, really? You wouldn’t happen to only have a light case of the spergers and are using that as a justification to champion the cause of all autistics everywhere, are you? That’d be pretty fucked up to do…
