so basically, ableism is what people is what people shriek when someone insults them?
No, it’s what you call it when straight fuckboys go around shouting “ret*rd” and yell “triggered!” when someone is uncomfortable with something they said.
It’s what you call it when you start crying over something small because you can’t help it and a classmate calls you crazy. It’s what you call it when a therapist refuses to treat you because you have a certain personality disorder. It’s what you call it when people say an individual with a disability is “lazy” for being unable to work. It’s what you call it when kids bully an autistic student for being who they are.
