hey i think its great that you're debunking these ableist anons, i just wanted to let you know that instead of saying "otherwise not mentally typical people", the correct word is neuratypical people uwu

That’s what I’d been using until recently, but I saw a post just a couple days ago saying that ‘neuroatypical’ was created by and for autistic people and those with other developmental disorders, not necessarily as an umbrella term for all kinds of mental illness. So that’s why I didn’t use that term. Someone came up with a different term to be an umbrella term for all mental illnesses, something like mena-atypical or something? But I couldn’t remember the exact word.
