Ablesplaining is a patronizing "explanation" of any aspect of disability from someone who does not have the lived experience of being disabled. An ablesplainer's opinion is often shared without request and with a grossly inflated sense of entitlement. Don't be an ablesplainer.
Stop defending your words. You are ablesplaining!

i.e.
"I can use words like stupid, retard, moron, and idiot because they are just language and aren't meant to offend anyone."

"But you don't look like you have a disability!"

"Look at that person parking in an accessible parking space! They don't need a wheelchair so they are just taking advantage of the system."

"That child doesn't look autistic to me, the parents just need to discipline him/her."

"We are in compliance with ADA because we have wheelchair ramps and accessible bathroom stalls."

Nov 27 Word of the Day
A stupid person; it refers to the lack of surface area on an individual's brain. The general thought is that the more surface area (wrinkles, creases, etc.) a brain has, the smarter the person is. Conversely, a person with a smooth brain (no wrinkles) has less surface area and would therefore be stupid.
That fucking smooth brain put his shirt on backwards again...

That smooth brain is dumber than a pile of shit.
