why do people write “bad at communicating” as jake’s main trait like dirk didn’t literally create a robot to talk to his friends for him
I'm really glad that one anon brought up the autism thing. I'm an actual autistic person and when I read fics (usually kl/nce) w/ autistic k, I felt uncomfortable. I always felt like autism was being weirdly fetishised, like "k has stims, that's so cute." They would also act as if he were very child-like which is insanely ableist. I also agree that they're suddenly using his "autistic traits" (bad communication and rashness) to say he's a bad leader. Antis are disgusting.
