A not so short reflection on social stigma and hysteria.

Anyone who knows me as a person knows me a little bit regarding my stance on eugenics. I am in favor of eugenics, of producing the best humanity can make.

But that does not mean I consider the idea of murdering disabled people an option. I actually hope they could be helped overcome their disabilities through technology and science.

Still I have an aversion for mentally disabled people, which fortunately has diminished a bit recently. Why? Well. There are a few people with what seems to be Down’s syndrome or another mental disability in my neighborhood among my new neighbors. Some are adults (Past puberty) others are children (Before puberty) and as such they act differently to people their age.

What I noticed that made me lose some of my aversion to them is that I noticed how they interact with other people, and also something that made me realize my aversion was partly learned and unfair.

Ever since I began to take the red pill, and then what male sexualists call loli pill, which I refer to as crimson pill (Referring to a deeper shade fo red than the red pill), I began to study my own mind and figure out which things I learned to hate despite not being harmed by them. One fo them was of course mentally disabled people.

With that in mind once I noticed the ones in my community I took the chance to study their behavior. Yes, it is abnormal and it is true that I still avoid them a bit. But I noticed one of the origins of my aversion, and therefore once unjust hatred, was the way their own parents treat them.

Yes. What i am saying is parenting sucks because parents suck. Many parents actually harm their children, and that is the case with children born with disabilities.

The primary example of harm, which is actually enacted by most parents, is that they overprotect them. Using the argument of “They are disabled, weak, and won’t be able to interact with normal people” they isolate these children for a long time, stunting their already damaged growth and also making people see them negatively due to them not being used to these flawed specimens.

This is also something parents of normal children do to them when regarding adults because “Adults are dangerous.” and therefore prevent them from the benefit of interacting with people who don’t see the world the same way they do. Even worse, they spread that into maturity by extending adulthood into arbitrary numerals (Puberty should be the mark of adulthood, regardless of age). Which contributes to our current state of affairs as a society in the West.

Now. This is something almost all parents do to an extent. But there is something more pernicious that is common with parents of disabled children but rare with the rest.

They treat their children with scorn and resent. They chastise them for everything, hide them out of shame, prevent them from interacting with others, and even might keep their existence a secret out of shame.

It is terrible to realize part of my disdain for disabled people came from how their own parents treat them. Yes. I know they are, in fact, a sort of burden, especially if they can’t do anything on their own. And I would rather not have a disabled child. But if you do not feel like carrying that burden, why carry it only to abuse them? That is simply detestable.

No. You are not selfless and heroic for taking in a child with a disability and act with cruelty and resent. No, you are not sacrificing yourself. You are choosing to be abusive. You could put that child into adoption, or seek another way to not carry with something that clearly you detest.

Of course many parents of disabled children are on the first, overprotective category, and they actually love their children. But the scornful parents are one of the origins of social stigma on disabled people.

It is time we take a break from the tedious life we go through and see the origins of social stigma and rejection on things. Figure out what is going on, where it came from, and whether it is fair or not. And be ready to actually pull out a middle finger or two to many parents, including yours, since most of the time they are to blame for unjust social stigma falling on harmless, or entirely normal folks. The example I exposed is proof of it.
