Discussion in 'The Sanctum Santorum' started by Adree, Dec 2, 2012.
I believe you're totally right. Mmmmm, delicious cow rump.
Is this now the thread where we all refer to each other as "honey"?
That's mostly a me thing, but if you'd like, honey, you're absolutely welcome to join in.
Yes, I was clearly trolling and not expressing exasperation with his bizarre viewpoint. Stating a thread is without merit on the basis of a single snarky word (with a common connotation towards those that abuse an actual condition) is ludicrous. But I suppose I'm just a stalking hack and I should stand back and just let Aaron rant baselessly while you give him a thumbs up.
So long as we're all clear on this point.
it's pretty ass
I had a ribeye butt steak last night. Pretty good.
Whether or not you think Aaron's posts are a positive contribution to the thread - and I might even agree, in a vaccuum, that they overreact slightly, given the reactions of other people in the thread who are themselves diagnosed - it's clear that yours contribute nothing.
My work here is done.
Ahaha wow, this thread certainly has the "ass" part down. I sure am glad that I decided to venture out and check out the rest of the subforums.
Self-diagnosis of depression, manic-depressive disorder, and ADD is also douchey but that doesn't mean the disorders themselves are to be laughed at or dismissed/taken as illegitimate. Or rather, if they are to be laughed at, those who laugh at them are also free to be called scraps of human refuse who should have been absorbed by their mother's womb instead of inflicted upon the earth like so many locusts, and then laugh that off and go "u mad bro". And then I'm free to wish that technology had advanced far enough that virtual punches in the face were open-distribution.
But hey, have fun being an off-brand Something Awful thread.
No one is doing that. Really. Have you even *seen* the depression thread in this forum? Tell me who in there is making fun of the condition. Hell, tell me who in this thread even is dismissing actual aspergers.
Oh yeah, I've seen the depression thread. No one in there's making fun of it, which is nice and gives the larger community as a whole some props. So far this thread has mainly been Adree trying to be an offbrand Maddox, "lol posers are lame", which is legitimate but what's new, "This thread feels kind of in bad taste" "No it's not", and people appearing to call Aaron a tryhard for no apparent reason other than to maybe try and piss him off. But maybe it's just my lack of sense for this particular forum's dynamics.
Also: God damnit.
And now you know what subforum you are in!
All right then. Carry on.
The reactions of those diagnosed? The reaction by essentially everyone else has been a shrug, with Zeke summing it up best (paraphrased): anyone that actually has it finds this to be a meaningless distinction.
As Astromarine mentioned, no one is ridiculing the condition, just the PEOPLE that claim to have it so they can be internet special. That kind of crappery does actual damage to the people that have it and the perceptions of the condition from those that don't.
Aaron dickmongered in and was pointlessly hostile, giant shock that things dissolved.
He could have just posted what he posted in post #54 and things would have been fine. Post.
I did manage some live captures of Nute fighting the good fight though...
This is what makes the Prince of Power a Champion.
Self diagnosis of any mental condition is wildly dangerous at worst and liable to delay treatment at best.
For the record people who are actually diagnosed I have no problems with. The internet made self-diagnosis to fill in the blanks why a person can't socially interact with others or is just a huge prick all the time (JUST LIKE YOU ADREE AMIRITE GUYS) some sort of thing to be celebrated and that's wrong.
How generous of you.
Oh, I agree. Nobody wins except maybe those poser jackasses on the Internet, except that most people know they're full of shit and ridicule them, but then people who actually do have a professional diagnosis of the condition are either afraid to express that fact as an unfortunate side effect of that ridicule or say that they have it and are automatically taken as more posers. Much like "girls on the Internet" 5-10 years ago.
I'm still not clear on why Asperger's being de-legitimized by the psychological community is something worth partying over, but I'm going to chalk it down to Santorum-ing. As for me, I don't have Asperger's, though people who have no idea what Asperger's is tried to pin it or autism on me just like they did with ADD back in the day, but I have struggled with psychiatrist-diagnosed bipolar and thus tend to get mildly defensive over people making light of mental conditions. I've seen a bunch of people on the Internet expressing sentiments like the initial impression I got from this thread who earnestly do think all mental disorders are just tryhard stuff that can be solved with pure bootstraps, so that's why I reacted the way I did.
Don't be such an assburger.
Can you point out where that's happened?
It's being merged into high functioning autism, not delegitimized (which isn't hyphenated, by the by). Did you in fact read the thread before engaging your poopybutt drive, or were you too busy working up a moral froth?
Um...Did you read the beginning of the thread? Nobody is partying over Asperger's being de-legitimized, nor was anybody making light of the condition itself. They were glad that people can't use it as an excuse anymore for being assholes.
This is clearly indicated by the way in which nobody gave a shit for a page and a half. Clearly.
I phrased that badly. I meant "removed from the DSM" and implied to have been gotten rid of by the thread title, when really it mostly affects insurance coverage in terms of treatment, which is probably not really a good thing regardless of whether or not it makes for less posers.
Unless you mean the partying, in which case: are you seriously trying to make me break out a clinical definition of "partying"? Or suggesting I probably shouldn't use hyperbole because this here thread is an actual spirited debate? Don't change up the rules on me all of a sudden, jeez.
Nobody said it was a good thing, and were in fact discussing exactly that (how it's bad and how it affects insurance) in the first page of the thread.
Apparently you came into this thread to defend people with assburgers and complain about excessive pedantry.
In that case, define "assburgers". Is it A) a general overarching term for people on the higher-functioning end of the autism spectrum or B) a general overarching term for people on the Internet who pretend they have said condition? If A, yes. If B, no.
I came into the thread to rage because of perceived slights against A, but if it's B I don't really care and I'm just rolling with it. Basically, if it's B, which the OP and most people seem to espouse and I've accepted, then now you're the one getting worked up and I'm the one laughing.
It was in D&D before
What the viewers can't see, but should be assured are there, is the eye roll, defiant hip cocking and tongue clucking of Aaron's thin-skinned 15 year old girl internet persona.
Actually Adree started it in Jan& so it's been moved twice.
Only if you stop being so retarded.
I'm just bitter that you went with "dickmongered" instead of something more clever. You couldn't work a pedantry pun in there? Have I been on BrokenForum all this time for nothing?
I think "dickmonger" would be more descriptive of the average BrokenForums member, if I'm honest.
I guess I plowed into a sensitive spot with that remark?
