do you know why feminism has a horrible image?
i’ll let you in on a secret here, it’s because people hate women
Ableism is a form of discrimination or social prejudice against people with disabilities.
And that means learning disabilities too. Which is why words like m*ron are ableist.
Words like “st*pid” and “m*ron” and the r word and other derogatory words are ableist slurs because they promote the notion that people with learning disabilities or other cognitive disabilities are okay to insult.
Using a negative descriptor (a slur) that is typically associated with an oppressed group of people as a way to insult someone is a way of indicating that you think it’s a negative to be associated with that group.
It’s dehumanizing and oppressive behavior.
