Honestly I want Amanda Bynes to get the help she needs and I agree that people shouldn’t be making fun of her for her mental illness, but as someone who’s got bipolar disorder, I just want the OPs of all these “she’s bipolar, which means she literally can’t control what she says or does, you’re being ableist by getting mad at her for saying the n-word uwu” posts to be aware that those posts are way more hurtful, condescending, and, yeah, ableist than literally any joke or snarky comment I’ve seen directed at Amanda Bynes so far. Thanks, self-proclaimed allies, for letting us know what you really think of us.
“those posts are way more hurtful, condescending, and, yeah, ableist than literally any joke or snarky comment I’ve seen directed at Amanda Bynes so far” i agree with like all of this but…i feel like this is such an unnecessary comment? you dont have to say “ableism towards mentally ill ppl is not as big of a deal as this.” like i dont know. someone correct me if im wrong for thinking you shouldnt trivialize ableism like that
Hi, mentally ill person here! What I’m saying is not “ableism towards mentally ill people is not as big of a deal as this.” What I am saying is that the comment “she has no control over herself, she’s bipolar” is the most ableist comment I’ve heard directed at her so far. As someone with bipolar disorder, if I had to choose between literally any of the jokes leveled at Amanda Bynes and the idea that my disorder makes me incompetent to take responsibility for hurting others, I’d choose the jokes in a heartbeat.

You see, she lives at one house, and me, I live in a totally different house, but sometimes, even when we’re not in the same house, we still want to talk to one another, and on those very frequent occasions, the internet comes in handy. The internet is a global network that links computers together and allows people to communicate even when they’re not in the same place.
I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.
