Anonymous asked: So, a friend's brother hacked her facebook and did the really homophobic fake coming out of the closet thing. When asked to tell her brother that this is not ok, she proceeds to say no because he is too "derpy" to get it because he has learning and behavioral disabilities. Is this ableism?
Oh geez. I haven’t seen that scenario in a while [the hacking and fake coming out on facebook as a “funny prank haha” thing.].
Well. I personally think she should have said something to him, even if she feels he wouldn’t understand it. But as far as being ableist…I don’t honestly know how to answer that. Maybe?
Does anyone who follows this blog have a better answer for this question?
[And sorry I couldn’t give you a good, definite answer! I just don’t want to say something just to say it, and not actually help at all, if I don’t know what I’m talking about, you know?]
