:0 I thought it stopped being ableist like centuries ago? I don’t think people still referred to people with walking disabilities as lame anymore. It doesn’t even bare the same meaning as it used to as an ableist word??
yea and i’m not about to speak for anyone since i’m able-bodied, i just think it’s an unnecessary word to use and could still be used negatively against disabled people. While it might not be as bad as ‘r*tard’ is, I’ve seen comparisons of saying ‘that’s so lame’ to ‘that’s so gay’, which doesn’t seem too far-fetched to me??? maybe idk It’s kinda the same negative meaning, and both comes from words used against an oppressed group so :/ and i’ve heard the ‘it means something different now’ arguement about too many actual slurs to really take it seriously.
idk honestly, google it and see if you find anything to convince you, but like i said, people don’t need to use it and i don’t understand why they still do. i haven’t used it (these posts excepted) for years and i’ve never had to struggle to find a word that means the same thing? like you can literally just say ‘that sucks’ or ‘that’s boring’
Yeah, i can’t speak for anyone either since im able-bodied as well, and i do see where you’re coming from Lydia but I just wanted to explain why i don’t think lame should be considered an ableist slur (the common usage at least)
See, we know the R word is an ableist term and we know that because when people use it, they are implying that the subject has a mental illness. The direct relation between the usage of the word and the disability makes it an ableist slur. However, “lame” on the other hand was used as an ableist slur in the past because it came from the Old English word for “broken” and was used to describe people with walking disabilities. The common modern day usage of “lame” implies dullness and boredom. When people use the common modern usage of “lame” they’re implying that the subject is dull or boring, not that the subject is broken or has a physical handicap. So that’s why I don’t see “lame” as a slur in that aspect.
And i understand what you mean about it being similar to “That’s so gay” but let me explain to you why i don’t think it is. When people use “gay” derogatively, it’s problematic because the word “gay” actually is commonly used to refer to homosexuals. However, in modern day, (correct me if I’m wrong) but I don’t think “lame” is ever used to describe a person with a walking disability??? So no one really needs to use the word “lame” to describe people with walking disabilities (because if they did that would actually be ableist)
But yeah that’s just my thoughts on it and obviously, people don’t need to use the word “lame” but i feel that in the same way people don’t need to use the word “happy”. i just didn’t want people to feel bad for using the word “lame” because i dont think it’s actually very (if at all) problematic.

Congrats everyone on beating it, I also helped out ok.
Don’t shame the girls who sent pictures of themselves half-naked to their significant others as a way to express eroticism which is healthy and natural… give the people hell who think it’s okay to destroy someone’s trust and distribute those images simply for entertainment purposes.
