Yeah, I’m aware of the drama with the kin blog. I was going to address this sooner, but K. M. Claude thinks the owner is doing it out of spite or for attention. I was concerned that if I got involved, it would only reinforce these beliefs and Claude would continue to bully the person who ran it.
Since things have calmed down, I’ll list the reasons why Claude’s response was ableist.
According to K. M. Claude:
- Fictionkin are ‘appropriating the language of mental health’, even though many kin are mentally ill and use it as a coping mechanism.
- Also, making fun of somebody for the way they cope is ableist.
- Fictionkin are delusional (Check the tags on that last post).
- Using ‘delusional’ as an insult is ableist because it’s attacking people who experience delusions.
