Hello, I am autistic and I find your assertion (and assumption) that people who can’t pick up on sarcasm are probably autistic to be incredibly insulting and you should try to refrain from generalizing like that. Ass.
people who make fun of people for taking things literally/not understanding sarcasm are super ableist
*studio audience groan*
Oh jesus christ, Demisnowflake, I recognize them as being the fucks who harassed my friend for being non-binary.
Honestly, OP is right. It is ableist to make fun of someone just because they don’t understand a certain way of joking. Because there’s neurological reasons why they have trouble differentiating; in fact that’s one of the biggest possibilities with people who have autism. They can’t help that their brains work that way, so making fun of them for that is pretty much the equivalent of making fun of a person with a missing leg who can’t run.
Sure, there’s the potential of “overcoming” those issues, with learning more about sarcasm or getting a prosthetic. But those aren’t fool-proof at all. People can still end up being confused as to whether or not a phrase is sarcastic, prosthetic can still break and be unable to run. And making fun of them for these unpreventable blunders is just disgusting.
So yes, OP is right. Making fun of people unable to understand sarcasm IS ableist. Because they can’t help that they don’t understand it, so your fucking harsh words isn’t going to help.
I’m embarrassed to be an Australian
I used to feel proud of where I come from but recently after certain government decisions, that isn’t the case anymore.
Our government is so focused on making money and dim-witted that they see that killing sharks, destroying a world heritage Tasmanian forest and dumping dredged material in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park as viable.
As an environmental science/ecology student I am astounded that these could actually go ahead, let alone put on table for discussion. There is nothing more important than protecting our environment and the individuals in that environment. These decisions will have detrimental effects on the balance of the ecosystems, ultimately affecting back to us and our way of life.
The international community, I assume, will be looking at us in disgust that we have put this leaders in power and let them go ahead with these plans without a fight.

WELL I’m horrified. This is what I get for constantly falling out of the science news loop. I miss big shit like this.
sorry in my own way
Leave me be, and i wont mention this again, this time its not the pony fandom who is viewing you, its the @ and they dont like having there friend being pick on, i still have all alex video, and no one use my name unless its alex, i have my own spies who say he alive and well , thanks to his steam and other gaming account, so leave me be and i wont go any further, i close evilestia because i tired of it all, i reopen this one because its out of everything, so deleted the long post about me and i wil do the same, spewing lies about me, doesnt bother me anymore, you ruin too many blog of mine to apologize so one last time leave me be, or youll be track by the @ im fucking tired of all your hate shit and picking on innocent bronie, you think you got the big end of the stick , no you dont, you done pretty mean things to many of my friend and you want me to forget this, im too tired nowaday to deal with you, so do as you please , delete the shit and i will do the same and not mention you ever again, and no alex is not dead, seriously give me something else
To clarify one thing.
I took over his stream and steam account and a few other gaming accounts.
I’m pretty sure I refer to this guy as Francois, and I’m also pretty sure my name isn’t Alex.
Another thing I’m pretty sure of is that Francois deserved much of the “hate” he got (fun fact: people saying things you don’t like or things that are negative but true do not constitute hate and I’m sick to shit of people slapping that fucking word on everything like it’s candy floss). Additionally still, I’m pretty sure most of the bronies featured on TSBD are not innocent. In fact, as far as I can tell, most of them are abhorrent people. Kiiiind of like Francois, who I am horrified to know is older than me.
I’m 26. The only way I get more adult is by physically aging. I think it would be in you best interest, Francois, to take… mmm… a year to educate yourself, reflect on the things you’ve done and are doing, and come to terms with the fact you are nothing like the person you try to paint yourself as.
Anonymous asked: Have you guys seen ask-mole-stia? (I think that's the URL) pretty sure its the same guy who does it but yeah.
I have and have seen some posts, but i dont think JJ is behind it.
Nah, that’s not JJ. One of the artists working on that project is Catfood. I saw posts about its launch on my dash. Lemme go check back on that.
[AND THEN PASSES AN HOUR]
nnnnnwow i WAS pretty sure cybersp0nge was involved and now i can’t find the post i’m thinking of.
Either way, JJ has nothing to do with it other than having created the source material Mole-stia is parodying.
also apologies if someone has already mentioned this, i’m in the middle of catching up on what’s been going on over the past week or so.
