If you don't care, why do you spend so much time responding?
For the same reason I don’t block your IP or disable anon. Because I’m used to overcoming adversity. It doesn’t bother me. I take most of the criticism in stride. Notice that very few of the answers I’ve given are long. In fact only two, including this one, were at all serious.
I’ve spent so much of my life being told I’m different, and that being different is wrong, and being mentally ill is wrong, and being ethnic is wrong. I’ve been civil in every instance of communication with you. I’ve never called you out or told you you were wrong, and that I was right. I’ve compiled evidence in your favor. I make weird faces when I sing, yeah. So does everyone granted I make some weirder faces that others do, but such is life. I have a small face. But I also have a small body and my sunglasses do fit correctly. I haven’t waved my acceptance letters in your face to community college jokes. I have asked you time and time again to provide evidence of when I use my mental illness to justify improper actions.
I spend time so much time coming up with civil answers to your questions because I know better than to suffer quietly through injustices. I know that if I speak out against adversity, I have the power.
So, come at me. Because no matter what. I will always win.
No, it's not because you look Asian. Actually, you don't look Asian at all. I'm part Asian and my brother has down syndrome; the first time I saw you I literally thought you had it too.
1. I have a hard time believing this.
2. For God’s sake it’s “Down’s Syndrome,” not “down syndrome.”
3. Just because you’re Asian, or you know someone who has Down’s Syndrome, it doesn’t stop you from being racist or ableist.
4. I’m fairly certain that thoughts are by definition figurative, and thusly cannot be literal.
The reason that I have a hard time believing that you have a brother with Down’s Syndrome is because you use it as if you’ve never been around someone disabled. Having spent most of my life in the special needs community, I know that ableism is not something to take lightly. But maybe you haven’t been immersed in a culture where everything that happens is a miracle. Maybe you spend your time leaving hateful messages in the ask boxes of people who really couldn’t care less about being insulted. And so what if your brother has Down’s. Using it to justify your ignorance is doing more harm than good and reflects poorly on your character.
I don’t care if you insult me. But don’t bring other people down to do it. And certainly don’t use someone else’s misfortune to do it.
It seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even “lame” is kind of lame. Saying “You’re lame” is kinda like saying “You walk with a limp.” Yeah, whatever. So does 50 Cent; he’s done all right for himself. It’s not that I mind being insulted, it’s that I mind being insulted so poorly. There are plenty of great insults. I mean, you could be like “u r way 2 focused on urself”.
I’m pretty sure everyone does. You have to do weird things with your face in order to make noise. Like go on youtube and pick a video. Stop it at any time while someone’s talking or singing and they will probably be making a strange face, just because that’s how it works. No joke.
That is far too long to be an insulting nickname. And I’m small. I’m less than 85 pounds and under 5 feet tall. Do you think it matters that I have a small face. No. Shouldn’t you have better things to do than poorly insult me at 5 in the morning?
Not about going to community college. If that’s what I need to do, then I’ll do it. Or I’ll get some orphans or write a novel. Or a job. Whatever. I don’t really care about the future. And you don’t really understand humors.
Hey! You know you're awesome right? :D I feel that with this anon hate going around that I should chime in too! (But with good stuff of course. :D)
I actually don’t care about the anon hate. I think it’s funny. Anyone who refuses to back a claim when given ample time an evidence on the matter is just silly. Haters are going to hate. and I’m going to keep on keeping on.
Yes, I went there.
“i think the idea of a ‘mental health day’ is something completely invented by people who have no clue what it’s like to have bad mental health. the idea that your mind can be aired out in twenty-four hours is kind of like saying heart disease can be cured if you eat the right breakfast cereal. mental health days only exist for people who have the luxury of saying ‘i don’t want to deal with things today’ and then can take the whole day off, while the rest of us are stuck fighting the fights we always fight, with no one really caring one way or another, unless we choose to bring a gun to school or ruin the morning announcements with a suicide.”—
