Re: that telegram from Arduo. Why would you even bother replying?

I would have replied to see it was RP, if not one can always take steps. The fact he sent it to LGBT directly and not to our region in general makes me think it was more of a RP thing, especially as we are tagged with Role Player. We'll maybe see.

Should I agree, compromise, or resist?
Ultimately, the issue was dismissed.

Except that's not the message you send when you equate the two. Please don't do that anymore is all. :)

Well, for exactly this reason below...

So far, there's been no reply so I would say it was for RP. Even if it was, it was a terrible attempt at it.

I'm going to agree with power girl . Unfortunately, mental illnesses, along with many other things, are stigmatized. So, whilst it may not be your intention to be offensive and generally mean towards autistic people, that is what happens. By using in a negative way the terms associated with that particular stigmatized thing, you are furthering a culture of stigma and intolerance and disunity, which I do not believe is your intention. I merely request that you be careful with your words, and remember that one cannot choose to be mentally ill or not. Mental illnesses are not chosen by the people who have them. Nobody chooses to be autistic. They merely are. And mental illness does not define a person. This situation is comparable to stigma against women or the queer population. If a person were to say, by way of insult, that something is "gay", or that someone is a "f**got", they would be furthering the stigmae against queer people. They would be telling those around them that it is okay to be doing that, that it is okay to be anti-lgbtq, that it is okay to say that certain sexualities are bad. Alternately, imagine if someone called someone else a girl. "you play sports like a girl" is a common one. Or "you punch like a girl" or "you [any action typically associated with masculinity and males] like a girl". By suggesting that doing something "like a girl" is a bad thing, that person would be furthering the stigma against femininity. That person would not only be making a connection between being a female and doing something poorly (as the connection is made between queerness and badness, or between mental illness and badness), but they would also be connecting being a male and doing it well (because, by logic, if "throwing like a girl" meant you did it poorly, "throwing like a boy" would mean that you did it well). Furthermore, they would be suggesting that all males do that action well, and all females do it poorly. So anyhow. I've wandered off topic. To get back to my main point, I respectfully ask that you consider your choice of words carefully, so as to avoid furthering stigmae and stereotypes and fear. You would also avoid upsetting or hurting some people. Thanks! Cheers. :)

Judging by his writing skills in his region he might still be learning about RP. I'm going to continue to have faith though, mainly because the alternative is bloomin depressing.

Ooops sorry Power Girl, apparently I tagged the wrong nation when trying to tag you.

I'm sorry but this is a literal keyboard warrior wall of text.
I can't even write this much when I'm RP'ing.
