What’s so touching about two old people walking around the block every night. Jesus Christ internet. Old people aren’t stuffed animals. They don’t exist to make you go “aww.” Let the people get their damn cardio without some cat-ears instagram creep taking a grainy picture of their backs.
I don’t either. I honestly think it’s one of those things tumblr just gets riled up over for no reason.
Idk… it’s different to a term like “f*g” or “pussy”, which have become terms for people who are deemed lame or weak. But, despite being two different usages, they still contribute to homophobia and sexism within society.
Whereas “dumb” means someone who lacks intelligence. The only other common usage is for someone who is mute, but unlike the slurs I mentioned before, calling a stupid person dumb doesn’t contribute to ableism in society. At least, not to my knowledge. Maybe I’m wrong.
