I will say that I'm glad that this semester instead of getting mad about white boys who know 0 things and like to talk about gun rights, I'm taking classes that let me get mad about landlords and native american rights, but I'm still mad, and this makes me even more mad

one of the main reasons I enjoy using mastodon so much is that it's a very community-oriented space and, as such, I think it's important for everyone to do what we can to extend that accessability and welcoming place to everyone we can, not everyone knows about the automatic caption detection feature and it just makes it so easy to do

most of what i see said about italian americans has nothing to do with what makes em fucked up. its the same "pasta! pizza! marrrone!" sopranos impression shit that's been THE way italians have been made fun of since the 1880s

you might say to this "well, its not that deep," and you're right. that's the problem. you know on some level that a group is worth criticizing, so you adopt the language of old WASPs who werent exactly making fun of italians bc "oh they're racist against black people"

Hot take on "ableist language"

a related analogy I've also found useful: bigots and the like need to be banned for the same reason that you can't be a creationist in an upper level biology class. at some point the conversation is being held back because while the class is attempting to discuss molecular genetics, some clown in the back row keeps holding up the class with questions about how come there's still monkeys if we evolved from monkeys

Hot take on "ableist language" 

Tooch boosted

I have a degree in linguistics. The etymology of a word is not the same as the meaning of a word, and it's certainly not the "true meaning" that we somehow unconsciously absorb without knowing.

If etymology was the same as meaning we wouldn't be able to distinguish between shirts and skirts; aprons, and napkins. We'd have to talk about "evil movies" instead of "bad movies" because "bad" was possibly a homophobic term in the 1300s.

You know what I'm talking about.

You talk to your racist grandma, and you just awkwardly smile and nod, because you know it's WORTHLESS to talk to her about why she can't call POC the "coloreds" anymore.

But you tell your friend on here, "Hey, comrade, that was in bad taste"

Why? Because you know your friend will listen.

That's what we are trying to do with you.

it's a sign of respect, not of hatred. Please stop acting like we hate you.
