Heads up to my fellow autistic ppl to block tumblr user: atheistic-aesthetica
This person has been saying some pretty nasty and ableist stuff in the #actuallyautistic tag.
Do not bother engaging/trying to argue with them they are a minor (14) and are most likely a troll. Don’t engage and definitely dont harass them or send hate - just block them. They really aren’t worth the effort.
They persistently use the r-word; ‘r*tard’ and their response to people asking and telling them to stop is to only use it more.
They have called self-diagnosed autistic people fakes and insist that self-diagnosed people are doing it to seem “cute/quirky” and to look special.
On top of this they believe that any autistic person that has more than one special interest is not actually autistic and is faking it.
They believe that autistic people that say they enjoy stimming or who portray their stimming as something good are not really autistic and are faking it.
Basically they just seem to think that autistic people cannot and should not ever be proud of or enjoy being autistic or have any positive feelings about being autistic.
They find it funny that other autistic people are getting upset and angered by their post - calling the upset/angry responses them “getting triggered” and finding that hilarious.
Calls people who get upset about the r-word “sensitive pussies”
Yes they seem to have a truck load of internalised ableism to work through and I hope they are able to work through it someday but that does not excuse their bullying tactics.
EDIT: They are also enbyphobic/exorsexist and transphobic in general.
atheistic-aesthetica is very hateful and a bully. They are also a troll and a minor. Do not engage. Do not harass/send hate (this is never acceptable). Just block their url and move on.
today in my creative writing class we had to come up with titles for imaginary stories (based on real life experiences) and now get this: one of my titles was: “Hummerstreik” (“Lobster strike”), a story about someone not wanting to eat seafood. Hungerstreik. Hummerstreik.
i am, without a doubt, a genius and the only funny german 👏👏👏
