does ANYONE on tumblr know what ableism even is
Telling someone to go outside because…
You’re the one that made it about mental illness and disabilities.
A lot of OTHER times, people are just too fuckin lazy to get off their ass.
So yeah you pretty much added your own context for the sake of making them seem offensive in the eyes of SJ by bringing in disabilities to the mix when they could have simply been referring to someone who plays video games 90% of the time and is perfectly capable of leaving their home. Not everyone who stays in all the time has to have a disorder.
Never mind the fact that, “You need to go outside,” has long transcended the fate of only having a singular literal meaning and that when people tell you to “go outside”, more times than not what they’re saying is, “You’re extremely out of touch with how the world actually works and you should probably fix that, or at the very least drop whatever it is you’re talking about.”
And even if you are, say, suffering with agoraphobia (as I did for several years due to anxiety and depression and still have trouble with from time to time), in all honesty you really SHOULD go outside. You have to learn to overcome the fear that society is out to get you if you want to exist within it, and the only way to do that is to expose yourself (with the help of supportive friends/family/counselors, hopefully).
So seriously. As someone who should apparently be offended by being told to, “Go outside,” from the way some of you Tumblrfucks like to jump to my “rescue”: go outside.
