and the word “resolution” is triggering as fuck to me because you know what that usually means as a survivor?
it means, its up to you to forgive and forget and transform your abusers/oppressors and if you choose to be like “fuck you, go away forever, and heres a punch in the face while im at it”, which is a perfectly reasonable reaction to abuse,
people come down on you about “compassion” and “sympathy”, “peace”, “love” and “resolution”. not them for doing it to you, but you for bein angry and resentful about it.
i hope you mean everybody but the survivor is gonna resolve shit! alls ima have time for is resolving my healing and ima need support for that too!
i hate that “resolution” always comes with comfort for the abuser and more of a burden for the survivors.
maybe i dont wanna resolve shit, maybe i just want you eradicated from my life and the planet and that is MY resolution!
Yes, all of this. We don’t need to forgive our abusers or talk to them to “heal”. We’re allowed to hate them. fuck forgiveness. fuck being polite. fuck “meeting them halfway” because they obviously didn’t give a fuck about the person they were abusing in the first place.

until native americans roll up into europe and start taking things at their leisure, you can’t tell me it goes both ways. until puerto rican doctors start sterilizing white women, you can’t tell me it goes both ways. until a white “swagged out” justin beiber lookin ass kid in a hoodie gets shot down for dressing like a thug, YOU CAN’T TELL ME IT GOES BOTH WAYS.

oppressed groups cant oppress their oppressors because they dont have the power because thats part of what being oppressed is. how hard is this to grasp
Why can’t people just fucking understand this

one of my favourite things white dudes say is “welcome to the real world” whenever you express a problem with something they’re doing.
like, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone more insulated from the ugly realities of the real world than most twenty-something white dudes

As for the “evil=insane” trope I wouldn’t agree so much that it’s ableist by nature.
Because when I think about, to be truly ‘evil’ and do despicable things on purpose a character HAVE to have some psychological problems and/or instabilities. Where ableism lies, however, is any implication that all neuroAtypical people are villains.
TL/DR: every evil character is most likely insane, not every insane character is necessarily evil.
I disagree strenuously. Some of the most evil acts I know have been committed by people who were not disabled by mental illness; they simply did not consider the person/people they were hurting worthy of respect. It was not even a matter of thinking they were in the right, or of ignorance, or other excuses commonly attached to evil acts. Internet trolls are cruel to others for shits and giggles. They aren’t mentally ill. They do it because it’s fun, and the other person’s feelings are not respected by them.
@OP: what Western ‘civilization’ (lol) conjures up as ‘insanity’ is only to be found in Eurocentric judicial processes.
Need it spoonfed? Clinically insane (what you & everyone else means when they say ‘insanity’ as a perjorative) is nothing but a generic, catch-all lay term, the province of armchair criminal shrinks and white college sophomores.
It’s been the MO of ‘exceptionalist’ Western societies with their ultra-heternormative colonial agendas to isolate evil like hell to ‘deviant’ individuals, when the reality of evil is proven time and time again to be banal, systemic, and of the status quo rather than deviants/societal margins.
Quite convenient, given how white Western peoples are guiltier of systemic oppression than any other group in history. Explains why ableism gets parsed so completely differently among POC than it does for whites, why the privileged are so fucking quick to cry that the oppressed are crazy/irrational/paranoid ad nauseum whenever we point out the bullshit, that we’re mentally inferior just by existing.
There are reasons why people who literally traffick children are nice normal folks who pass psychiatric evaluations with flying colors. Meanwhile, non-Western adoptees of color get diagnosed as serial killers before we even clear puberty.
