Anyone feel they can use Ableist Insults due to their disablity?

@DavidTheWitch To answer the thread, I don't think that having a disability (ASD) should give people the right to insult other people with disabilities. I think that's what you mean? I had to read some urban definitions to understand what ableism, as I think it's not easily decipherable at first glance (I thought that you were saying that because you have a disability, you feel like you can insult physically able people).

@DavidTheWitch Clearly you didn't like my response. However, I don't like you thinking it is OK to insult people because you have a disability, so what did you expect? :huh:

The issue with that is if people don't know you have a disability and they see you making jokes they could take it wrong.  Also, I think disabled people need to stand together and not put each other down.  You say you've made jokes about Down Syndrome.  How would you like it if someone with Down Syndrome made a joke about you?

Yeah that was something I did but I realized making jokes about Down syndrome relied off a stereotype that wasn't true?

Stereotypes often aren't true.
