“Ableism”, Trouble Making, and you people have a life?

2017 Update:  I was on other parts of social media at this time too. There are many people who have higher functioning autism that you can’t tell them and a special-snowflake or a Social Justice Warrior apart. Prior to 2016, ether SJW or special snowflakes were not in the lexicon. 

The common problem with any advocate (including the anti-vaxxers is the ability to run away from their problems from time to time. Being razor sharp on such issues all the time is perhaps the very same reason why there is frivolous cases of “ableism” here and there. 

The problem is so many, they do not have a life. Life other than throwing rocks at opposing’s windows. 


Before I start, I should disclose, that I do feel that I myself, and perhaps others have become a victim of being discriminated by “ableism.” These Asperger’s types have gone so far to make “ableism” to be put on steroids. While there is discrimination, and abuse, there are more healthy ways instead of using University type of language in the tone of anger. I’ll even say for myself, it may not make me go anywhere…which is why I try to redirect the energy to reform. Oh I’m not sure if “reform” is an OK word.

Anyways, a blogger named “Lydia Brown” (apparently it’s inappropriate to refer to it by gender…use your imagination – if you can tell if it is a fe/male) apparently had enough on Friday of “ableism” and started a hashtag on social media entitled “#TheAbleistScript.” This individual has claimed credit to the movement.

The movement, in my opinion should be in question.

When seeing the activity on Twitter, it’s not your logical discrimination, it’s also who say things like “my prayers are with you, get through it. You can do this!”. Apparently encouragement and support is offensive, and prejudicial. Or the “happy hands” when autistics get too excited in public places.  Don’t get me started when these thin skin types say things in anger like “disability doesn’t define you”.

Or this one:

So how is touching someone equivalent to racism or ablism?

So for me – what words should I f—–g use? Are we going to have to be the word police? Can we have any opinions?

While I’m mostly liberal on social issues, I guess I’m that wacky right wing nut job when it comes to this (in their view), because I do not like the radical wing of the liberals when it comes to words. I’ve strongly made my point in the last month, that the actions done by non profits, the actions of municipal agencies, and even teachers in the most liberal states on the east coast not doing their job, I think we (if you want to include all of us as a movement) should be redirecting what they interprut  “just words” to the actions, because actions mean a lot than words.

As my mother would say “actions speak louder than words.” And while “strength in numbers” matter, the problem is everyone speaks the same narrative, the same pitch, the same tone, over and over. Any difference of an opinion would make this writer “ableist”

I’m going to say this, I’ve lived in NH my entire life, there is ablism for sure. I’ve spent my entire out of district high school career in Massachusetts, another ableist state under very out of touch government bureaucrats who never taught in a classroom. A man in Lowell has my dreams all because he has Aspergers and I have PDD-NOS. A lot of my PDD-NOS type of peers are living in unpredictable living situations. Where’s the outrage?

This is why special interests groups, mixing in with autism, or high functioning autism is disturbing. I am very sorry to say but many of these high functioning “intellectuals” where even I don’t fit in because I’m too “simple” for them, but they need to learn how to be happy instead of trying to control a narrative. You cannot change an adult of how they think. They have their views; you have your’s, don’t attack others unless you want them to return the favor.

These people seem to not have a life. Where is their source of income? How can they get paid to attack other people online – for a simple differning view. Why are they so angry about “tone policing”? Why do they think they can be above the social rules and act like complete fools and think acting foolish will equate to change?

What about some recreation in life? What about a vacation to Disney World? What about watching a hockey game? Why listen to some music and get some news outside the propaganda machine from NPR? Why have a flipping hobby? (Oh wait, I can’t ask those questions because that’s “ableist”.)  Why don’t these people understand anger doesn’t get them anywhere. I don’t see many of these people making progress, they are causing a regression.

I can’t respect people when they can’t respect other’s opinions. That’s a direct violation to the “social skills” taught when they were children. I guess the better question is, where the hell is their parents – if they aren’t around – did they ever have any to begin with?

    You are the most ableist sack of [expletive] I have seen in a long time. You should be ashamed of yourself, and must lead a sad pathetic life to feel that it is okay to dehumanize a giant group of people. Multiple giant groups of people at that. Maybe you should have a seat, because clearly you have no idea what you are talking about. And I feel sorry for any disabled OR transgender person who comes in contact with you. Clearly they deserve so much better.

      Ok, so I don’t like transsexuals, and I don’t like disabled people. Sure I have many acquaintances who are non verbal, what about you? Some can’t talk like you do with the ongoing ad-homonym attacks against me. Oh and I have a couple gay friends too, love and respect them – so I can’t be homophobic (unlike what other have labeled me.)

      Instead of focusing on just ONE WORD, why don’t you comment on the “bigger picture” of higher functioning autistic attacking people like me, forcing other adults to change their views and name-call them; and perhaps watch a baseball game, play some Halo, or take a fall trip somewhere?

      (I’m speaking to other people – please get a life. “Life” such as attacking others, inciting anger and throwing rocks and fire on the packetwaves should not be considered constructive, but libelous and abusive behavior.)

    So you call out radical activists like Lydia Brown for not bringing about change but what have you done to make a difference? In the 11th grade Lydia introduced a law that would require Massachusetts police to receive training on interacting with developmentally disabled people. They have worked tirelessly to close Judge Rotenberg Center and traveled throughout the US fighting for the acceptance of all people with disabilities. This past year they were featured in two lists of top young thinkers. They have done plenty to make progress and they are not an “aspie” or “high functioning” (functioning are gross, reject the master’s tools and all that good stuff). In fact most of the radical Autistic activists I have encountered require loads of support and accommodation. You clearly have no grasp of how institutionalized oppression works (look up microaggressions, by the way) and until you do you cannot hope to work to dismantle it. And yes, touching someone when they’ve explicitly told you not to is both ableist (in this case) and a violation of consent and bodily autonomy.

      What have I done to make a difference?

      Simple. I was in school and was taught endless hours of “social skills”, to not belittle people in malicious ways on the Internet (because especially in this case it will never go away.) In the other 49 other posts so far, I’ve questioned the system specifically, the issues of my local police department with documented cases of ableism before and after my anti-LIUB demonstrations on public rights of way. I didn’t put the public in danger during that, but yet I got a police writeup and the town denying my requests to speak to the board about the alleged ableism at my local police department.

      I’d like to see some more evidence of what Ms. Lydia’s impact in the Massachusetts police force in re to ASD. From my sources, some individuals have been targets as of a few years ago.

      It’s funny you bring up “Microagressions” I’m sorry, I do not live on your planet, and I did search microagressions just on Monday after a Boston talk show host taught me this new word. The context was on a few NYU law students, (adults mind you) who were offended by some creepy costumes near Halloween. They threw this odd word “microagressions” and just shook my head. (BTW: I never listen to Howie Carr, the said talk show host for over a year now because of his anger to everybody.) However I find it no different than a few people with a thin skin that can’t understand the basic concept of not learning to disagree with other’s views. Instead, its attack till the person dies, swear at them on social media and make ad-homonym attacks without tangible solutions to the larger issue.

      I think some of these people need to debate for the sake of debating, and they don’t get a deisarable answer, so calling someone “ist” is the easiest way to “win” a debate, to put it lightly.
