Because people are now uber-sensitive. :I other “ableist” words include dumb, moronic , moron , idiot , idiotic and etc.
Ok really maybe its just that English is not my native language, but for me these are p much just light swearing words and i never used them to actually offence a certain group of people?? I do understand that people can be triggered by all kind of things, but i just don’t see how calling my own drawing dumb can trigger anyone and what is so bad about these words in general. I really don’t.
They are extremely light swears. No one off tumblr is even remotely offended by them. There’s a trend for a subset on tumblr lately to look up the etymology of words and decree them as offensive if they have offensive roots, even if no one has used it in that way in decades or centuries. It makes 0 sense.
Hey guys, here’s a question: you know these small closed packs of 16 TLM characters being sold in Lego shops now - so does anyone know if the toys have some sort of serial numbers, so you could, uh, find the ones you actually need instead of having to guess?
Lego minifigs don’t. My friends and I collected them long before the movie, you pretty much just look up the list for all the characters in that series and try to feel for unique pieces. For bad cop it’s the handcuffs (and the phone but don’t confuse it with another piece of the same size someone (I think emmet) has. Some are really easy like the mermaid.
someone who likes to start arguments, then retreats back to their blog and accuses everyone who disagrees with them of being a rapist/abuser/supporter of those things.
It causes drama every time. They used to go by ghostanswers but came back under this name.
It’s annoying and obnoxious and impossible to argue with because any time you attempt to do so they just say you support rape. It went on for months before they left the fandom, but now they’re back and I am completely uninterested in seeing people I respect engage this person again.
If it’s not rape it’s ableism or another societally charged issue. The point is they only like to pretend they support open communication, but it boils down to “agree with me or it means you support this awful thing” every time.
