over the past week i’ve come up with a list of non-ableist words to insult or describe people/things with and i wanted to share it! there’s just over 100 so please enjoy! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ (they’re under the cut)
honestly, this list (and any list that includes suggestions like “useless”, “garbage”, etc) is bullshit
words that seek to undermine someone’s sense of worth/individuality/humanity tap very deeply into common abuse survivor triggers and if your anti-ableism doesn’t account for that your anti-ableism sucks
Ahh yes non-ableist insult lists.
My favorite was the one that included ‘uncultured’ and ‘uneducated’ among the list of acceptable ‘non-ableist’ words.
I have to admit I never understood the idea that seems to run rampant online that calling someone a shitstain is somehow nicer or brings about a better world than calling someone stupid, though.
