On Slurs

Yesterday, some people thought “cis” was a slur. Now we have people thinking “allistic” is a slur. I guess we’re not supposed to say “cis” or “allistic”, when we should just be saying “normal” or “regular”. Because, of course, everyone who deviates from the majority are abnormal - and, therefore, deserve to be treated as lesser beings.

Ugh! Some people really make me sick! *headdesk*
