I really shouldn't go looking at things like this on Tumblr, but... but it's just so fu-hu-hunny that I can't resist.

For the linkpobic, a rundown-

Anon says: "About the spelling ableism. That is ridiculous, that's like saying people who are able to walk and do so are discriminating against people who can't."

Blog owner replies: "um, I didn’t say that spelling “correctly” is an act of discrimination, the idea that there is a “correct” way to spell something is oppressive. I love the ridiculous nonsensical analogies that privilege-denying assholes always give me— it doesn’t work to take a thought and apply it to something across the board. Anyway, read this zine before you ask any more questions please, I’m not willing to have a conversation about this if you don’t make any attempt to educate yrself: http://zinelibrary.info/fuck-you-im-dyslexic"

... Did you miss it? One more time!
