"I’m sorry to be rude or flippant, but the next time someone tells me that my demonstrably different brain chemistry can be solved by a quick shift in socioeconomic policy, I’m going to unhinge my jaw like a fucking rancor and swallow them whole. There is no utopian vision of a communist society where developmental and learning disabilities cease to exist. Any suggestion that a post-capitalist revolution will eradicate the otherness is bordering on genocidal fan fiction"

@stelepami Oh yeah, this is why the social model of disability is so important, to point out that barriers put up for us by the society we live in are not going to be the same in all possible societies. There definitely are ways that capitalism is super bad for almost all disabled people!

But some people talk like getting rid of capitalism will get rid of everything that disables us and that is far from true. Other systems can be just as ableist (or racist, sexist, etc) in their own ways.

@ItsMorgan
I used to be a mod. It's nothing like that.

Mods (generally) ACTUALLY help the community they're a part of!

I used to take my job very seriously, and there were checks and balances in place. If I banned someone without just cause, it was reversed and I was reprimanded. Too many of those and you'll get demodded.

if you think a mod in decentralised social media is in any way similar to a cop, you simply have never felt threatened by a cop
