Saying 'That gave me flashbacks' when you don't have PTSD is akin to saying 'I'm a little bit OCD' when you don't in fact, have OCD. It's inaccurate & it's also annoying af for those of us that do have it bc it makes it harder for us be taken seriously. #MakeAbleistsUncomfortable
TW: ableism, slurs
Playing my MMO and in a raid with other users, one of them called the accuracy check "crazy". I didn't have the spoons to debate ableism in a game meant for children, but"crazy" "insane" etc. are super ableist. #AbledsAreWeird #MakeAbleistsUncomfortable
Glad to hear Tiger has a chance to live a normal life. I don't care whether he plays golf again or catches Jack Nicklaus. Tiger has given me enough joy on the golf course. I'm good with the memories I have of him. I was worried about him being confined to a wheelchair.
While Sia’s situation with Shia Labeouf and her film are still big.
Shia Labeouf played an autistic character in 2002 in the DCOM Tru Confessions and his character Eddie is so much more accurate than Music in Sia’s film.

I wish people would make more effort to identify the reasons for an #autistic person's behaviour rather than just assuming the behaviour is bad if they think it's bad.
E.g. If an autistic person is screaming, don't blindly assume it's bad behaviour. They could be in a meltdown.
#UnpopularOpinion but providing an OKU a job is not a special feat. The person has the skill set of a mechanic hence the work. Also are there correlation with how skilled you are as a mechanic with how much/less of hearing impaired you are? #MakeAbleistsUncomfortable
Can y’all fucking STOP RTing and using tweets with ableist slurs in them? It’s really not that fucking hard.
Newsflash: “ally” You’re making the conscious decision to harm disabled people and repeatedly telling them they don’t matter.
I am fed up with ignorance, and hate crimes against disabled people. Education key and ableism (discrimination against disabled people needs to end) #MakeAbleistsUncomfortable #Ableism #BillC7 #equality #disablednotdead #disabledvoices #healthcare #COVIDー19
Receptionist: We don’t do phone consults. We’re a gynaecologist.
Me: You know disabled people have gynaecological problems too.
(Also, was forcing pregnant women into a shared waiting room really the best they could do during COVID?)
Tweet: [pithy remark containing ableist microaggressions]
Me: [replies to point out ableism]
Reply: ["it's not about you" or outright mockery]
Me: [*flaps wildly* this is the problem!]

In case it wasn't apparent to the left, plenty of disableds and autistics and others don't trust you either. It's infuriating to hear y'all call right-wing fascists ableist for mocking mental health only for you to then do the same thing yourselves.
Congratulations & thank you sebab ada pekerja yang very helpful and friendly. Kiri tu OKU (pendengaran & bisu), kanan normal
Even dia OKU but he's really skillful like a true mechanic, mahir serba serbi boleh. Bila nak bagi tips taknak ambik sebab ikhlas bantu 😭
Yes, I'm an adult. Yes, I have invisible disabilities. Yes, I do struggle with some things that most little kids get the hang of quickly. Thanks for noticing. But no. I don't want you pray for me. Or call me inspirational. I'm just a person #MakeAbleistsUncomfortable
Do you know what? There are some posts that don’t need any explaining
This morning I woke up to this👇🏻
For the sake of everyone, I urge you just to read a few of the comments...
Only then might you feel as embarrassed as I am for these poor, ill-informed haters...
Point no 2 is #ableist bullshot. How to get accommodations?
Don’t come at me that people will not hire you or fire you if they know. Apa jenis manusia la yg reject orang yg nak bekerja just on the basis of their health when you know jack about it?? #MakeAbleistsUncomfortable
I challenge every writer right now to take a look at your current WIP & see how many times you used ableist phrases/slurs — cr*zy, id*ot, ins*ne, d*mb, st*pid, l*me, mor*n, tone deaf, blind eye, imb*cile etc — & replace them w/non-ableist language.
