I think the other terrible thing about the MRA/Occidental College rape form thing is that they automatically jump to thinking about worries of women reporting false rape claims.
At no point does it seem to occur to them that this form would be a really useful way for male rape victims to talk about their own experiences. They don’t care about male rape victims, no matter how much they point it out as “proof” feminists are oppressing them.
I feel like the problem with the “romanticising mental illness” thing might be that a lot tumblr sj-ers don’t actually consult crazy/disabled people about what they think or inform themselves about contemporary activism/thought in this area.
So… they’re still working from a “medical model” approach to atypical neurologies- ie these things as illness/disease, something innately tragic to be taken very seriously at all times and cured/recovered from. Rather than as an equal oppressed identity in need of acceptance.
The handful of friends I truly love- all have rare, uncommon brains and it causes them all a hell of a lot of trouble and pain. However none of that pain seems to be in anyway innate or inevitable. It’s social intolerance and rigidity that seems to be most responsible.
I don’t apologise for thinking my friends brains are astonishingly beautiful and precious to me- yes, partly because they’re uncommon and if singing that from the rooftops is “romanticising mental illness” then so be it.
We’ve gone through the hate of adding two Chinese members
We’ve gone through car accidents
We’ve gone through 4 military enlisting
We lost a member ( who is even leaving earth now for the moon )
We lost a member to acting
We’ve gone though countless scandals
We’ve gone through the death of Donghae’s father
Now we’re going through Leeteuks father and Grandparents
We’ve made them cry
They made us cry
But no matter what happens Elf and Super Junior are always there. We are not a fandom. We are a family that as gone through the good and bad. Even though Super Junior had it’s down we never left.
