Hey, just a note that some super common language is actually ableist and should be refrained from using on this site:

Here's an article on the topic:

We won't stand by every example listed there generally, what's important is the general principles.

That's crazy


celebratedrecluse wrote

is it really so surprising that the language you have inherited from a society soaked in hundreds of generations of brutal tyranny, might be gently encouraged to change by people who share your interest in transforming social relationships that language has a part in reifying?

or are you a complete ostrich?

sub is full of snowflake libs who never self crit

6 day global ban for ableism.

Thanks for signalling to me that this is a worthless platform with authoritarian, powertripping dipshit mods. If you're going to do this sort of heavy handed bullshit I literally might as well use any of the dozens of socialist subreddits that already have naughty-word bots to chide or ban us for the horrific crime of using words like "nuts." I don't need to come here if you're gonna give me more of the same bullshit, lmfao.

p.s. get fucked, saying "that's crazy" isn't in the same ballpark as saying the N word, it isn't even the same fucking sport, stop trying to make it like it is, fucker.

Also if you're the type of super fucking dipshit who instantly bans over shit like a single snide "that's crazy" in response to you chiding someone, hmm, maybe you could do us all a favor and flag all your posts as Admin (preferably with a note that you're a power tripping fucker with a hair trigger ban)

Nobody said it'd be the same ballpark. N-word would be a permanent global instaban. What you saw is me raising a point about ableism with someone, then someone else using the opportunity to double down on that ableism, and just getting a 6 day ban.

If you don't like it, please leave. We have a w/terms_of_service for a reason.

Can you give me a list of really mean words I can use then


An_Old_Big_Tree wrote (edited )

I can! Though I think people have deleted some of the better comments :( So I guess it needs work.

Hi All! I've been wanting to see what the options out there are for non-problematic insults. What you got?


Che wrote (edited )

Yo thats actually pretty cool thanks. Calling people tools sounds like a good replacement for ableist language

You should lead a revolution against raddle's tyrants. The people need a messiah.

You want to reduce our ability to communicate just so you can valor-signal? In this context, the c word does not refer to the mental capacity of the people in those chairs, but is used in a way that signals "wild abandon". Please get a life.
