TW: murder, suicide, murder-suicide, ableism, and victim-blaming
It’s happened again.
RIP Robbie. You did not deserve what your mother did to you.
The article is fucking disgusting, too. All of the “distraught mother” tropes and all the painting the victim as the villain and his murderer as the victim.
And I’m so damn tired that every single time some parent decides that disabled kids aren’t worthy of life, we have to have a huge fucking fight over whether or not we’re people and deserve to have our murders treated as such.
I just wish that just once allistic people would STFU and let autistic people grieve for a murdered one of our own in peace without having to fight over whether or not we’re people and whether or not our murders actually count as murder-murder.
