That post is kill. I made a blanket statement out of pretty justified rage. The show is over. Go away.
so apparently that “If you have autistic headcanons, you’re disgusting” person is saying they’re autistic and now im really confused
Anyway, I’m going to level with you and suggest you actually try to read my reasoning with this shit. At the time I was pretty pissed off because I found the autism and bipolar headcanon tags by accident and then there was a lot of this weird shit:
and taking the cake is probably this one:
Um, yeah, that shit is bordering on the uncomfortable here, and it very frankly makes me feel uncomfortable. I don’t like to use the “it makes me uncomfortable excuse” because it’s kind of flimsy, but I don’t really like how much this trivializes a real problem that I and people like me have to the point where we’re just arbitrarily saying “x is autistic/bipolar/whatever isn’t that cute/perfect/amazing”, which is kind of weird and almost fetishistic in a way. I understand the “oh, I want representation and/or characters I can relate to” mentality, but there’s a difference between thinking or reading a character as autistic and giving these weird creepy parses of pathology here and acting like it’s some cute little personality trait. I don’t hate people with autism, for reasons that should be patently obvious, but I really hate seeing this kind of shit and am skeeved out by it, really.
Had you actually gone back and read the context in which that post was made on my blog and seen me list my reasons earlier, you would have understood, but instead some cool guy thought they’d quote me out of context to seem progressive on a microblogging site and then you called me shit without actually taking the time to understand why I feel this way, so honestly, fuck you dude.
You wouldn’t go and do this shit to someone who has multiple scleroses or cancer or whatever, so I would very much appreciate it if people would stop trivializing shit like this in such a way like it’s some cute character quirk. Cheers.
Just a reminder that if you have “autistic headcanons” you are disgusting and I hate you.
$100 on you not being autistic
Joke’s on you, I am.
I take checks.
well you’re still shitty
If you are autistic you are disgusting and I hate you
I find it pretty funny that, shockingly, people within different demographics have different opinions on things. It’s a mind-blowing idea, I know.
Perhaps I should rephrase: If you are making headcanons for autism (or any serious mental illness, for that matter, like depression, bipolar, paranoid schizophrenia) to the point where you are fetishizing and obsessively parsing symptoms of a pathology OR saying that a character is more noble for being mentally ill OR playing armchair psychologist and diagnosing characters with shit when you have no idea what the flying FUCK you’re talking about (à la, oh Sayaka’s sort of moody I guess she has bipolar), then you’re sort of creepy and gross and don’t talk to me.
Godspeed, reverseableist. God-fucking-speed.
inb4 “ur just pretending” and/or “I bet you’re self-diagnosed”.
The most amazing is when those people are asking ‘where x’ right above a link to it in the tag
I’ve seen that a few times in the Hannibal and GF tags. “WHERE NEW EPISODE” between two posts that have a green box with “Watch episode in question at a sketchy streaming site” in them. Even if they’re not right there, combing through the tag usually will lead to something if you’re too stupid to google. It’s one of the reasons I don’t really like giving links out to anons unless they were a total bitch to find. The other reason being moralist anons that complain about me putting up songs in audio posts that there is literally no other way of listening to apart from buying an overpriced back-issue of a magazine or otherwise just being difficult to find.
Definitely. Stupidity is contagious and the way people see others do stupid things just worsens things as they think its the norm… and the cycle repeats.
I think the issue is that the average tumblr user has the mindset of a precocious four-year-old girl and can’t fathom the idea of tagging etiquette and will launch into a full-on tantrum if god-forbid someone suggest anything outlandish like maybe not blogging about your personal life in the tags or tagging posts that are tangentially related to the subject; eg:
I did miscellaneous activities with friends I will refer to by first name as if you care and then went out for ice cream of an unusual and quirky flavor before coming home to discover that the postman had bestowed unto me my Rebellion Story BD. I am most excited..
I think the worst is where people will tag things just because they used a reaction gif from the show. But anyway, unless it’s something like sourcing your art!!!!!111 that everyone whines about constantly (despite it not being as widespread an epidemic as advertised), if you dare suggest that someone should use some kind of discretion when tagging people get very defensive because “NOBODY TELLS ME WHAT TO DO” (unless you’re white cisgender and male, then you have to meekly obey the demands of The Lord Highness White Guilt).

What if Siri is actually Glados…It’d certainly make using her more interesting.
All stemming from a collective inability to think critically, probably.
Aunt Google is a great mental image and I will now always read Google’s autocomplete/”did you mean? ” in an old woman voice
I’d much prefer Siri if it had the voice of a kindly old lady rather than the faintly condescending harsh female voice she has now. Not that I ever use Siri since it’s literally faster just to do shit yourself 99% of the time since one in five times Siri can’t understand your accent.
