#TeamSonya, including Sonya Larson herself, are all fucking disgusting ableists and it's not being said enough.
We're still in the middle of a pandemic where almost a million Americans have died because at the beginning we as a society decided some people, like me, were not worth sacrificing their brunches for.
We as a society decided that certain people were expendable so we could maintain some pretense of normality.
And thanks to truly RANCID people like Sonya Larson and Celeste Ng and all their defenders we now know that that kind of murderous indifference towards the disabled, the immunocompromised, etc is not just for conservatives anymore.
Because this week on Twitter has taught that apparently everyone is a fucking psychiatrist who can diagnose off a 3rd hand account. That people with BPD or Autism are just disgusting and unwanted. And that no one knows what NPD is even after 6 years of Trump in the spotlight.
And apparently posting multiple selfies a day and using social media to advertise your bridal shower or book is okay but to try to talk about health and illness is "too much".
That's just how it always is. If you're ND or mentally ill or disabled or chronically ill or whatever you're being "too much", you're asking "too much", you're "doing it for attention".

As another Sonya stan put it, it's just "not normal".
We're not normal and wanting to help us isn't "normal". Talking about helping us is narcissistic but posting what a good little capitalist you are by showing what new shit you want buy and what you've consumed is just fine.
And I know Sonya and her little friends share these ableist attitudes by the way they reacted to the story. Not just the plagiarism, not just the mocking of Dorland, but the actual story itself.
That it wasn't worth it to Sonya to do even the tiniest bit of research into what it's like for the terminally ill or for donors or recipients just says so much about her and everyone who had a hand is workshopping that dumpster fire of a story.
