ableism, fsf bs 

so apparently people are now excusing the creepy shit RMS does by blaming it on autism??? what the fuck??
Not only has he denied being autistic, it also feels just rlly insulting?? Like,, Im autistic and i dont go around doing creepy shit like he does,!! why would that be a valid excuse??? Being autistic doesn't require you to be a creepy asshole, and it's especially fucking weird when this is used as an excuse for an allistic person

fucking techbros >:(

ableism, fsf bs 

@AgathaSorceress I signed the statement a while ago where we GNU maintainers wanted rms out of GNU...

... and instead they bring him back into the FSF.

I'm so tired.

ableism, fsf bs 

@AgathaSorceress Oh fuck it's the top HN comment, "he's autistic".

So. Fucking. What.

Argh, I'm upset by this.

re: ableism, fsf bs 

@JordiGH @AgathaSorceress It allows them to keep up the pretense that their self-diagnosed make-believe Asperger's allows them to be an asshole at any time.

re: ableism, fsf bs 

@patrick @AgathaSorceress At least there's some voice of reason, being drowned out:

re: ableism, fsf bs, abuse, colonialism, wishing death 

@JordiGH ugghhhh the asshole reply in that thread listing Korea and anticolonial struggle as examples of cultures where right and wrong doesn't depend on others' comfort...

> * Consider treatment of children in Korea, where kids are forced, by their parents, to study 16 hours per day.

Yes, and Korean people recognize it's abusive as shit??

> * * Consider tactics used in many resistance movements against oppressive governments in Slavic cultures (and similar tactics recently adopted by oppressed African American communities in the US), which are explicitly about making people feel uncomfortable about wrongs.

I could go into all the ways this comparison is wrong but the most coherent words I can come up with are "Just die, asshole. Fucking eat shit and die."

re: ableism, fsf bs, abuse, colonialism, wishing death 

@ljwrites @JordiGH I just came back to this thread for this, notice how they are, in a sibling thread, trying to gaslight their interlocutor into believing they are confused with bs word salad.

HN will be mad if you don't like Paul the Not-Essay-ist, but lying and abusing your interlocutors is fine!

re: ableism, fsf bs, gaslighting & abuse 

@cadadr @JordiGH I dread to think of what this troll is like irl with people in an unequal power relationship with them 😬 I pray they don't have kids because imagine how much this rhetoric would fuck up a child.
