@ruin Yeah school is largely at the center of this debacle. Mainly that a specific thing they does has been causing them a lot of difficulty with other people at school. Talking about things doesn't really get across, and a lot of the conventional advice is really coercive and condescending.
Taking them as they are is a pretty wonderful piece of advice, even though (or perhaps because) it's not the easiest route. Fuck teaching people to act neurotypical, fuck (ideals of) humanity, fuck the education system. Going to have to figure out terms, pay a bit more attention, and be a bit wiser about all this.
I'll have to check out those zines! Also should probably read a bit more @ crip theory stuff in general
@bugs I tend to use a similar line of thought to address the critiques of anticiv as ableist.
The entire notion of ability in modern (post)industrial society is constructed through a materialist and utilitarian view of the body as a tool for production. We are measured by our physical capability to function in school, the factory floor, the office, the (single family) home, etc.
Anyone who can argue for such a conception of human value should fuck off.
