And sadly because privileged fragility has too often worn the mask of disabled/neurodivergent rights, I should add that the op emphatically does not apply to people pointing out the fragility of white people in race discourse, cis men in gender discrimination etc. Fuck out of here with comparing defensiveness at structural privilege to trauma and neurodivergence, I'm not here for that ableist bullshit.
So, yeah, I've seen these attitudes out there, even from people who really should be required to know better. :-/
@woozle ugh it's unfortunate that I can't discount that person being a therapist, as the profession is rife with bias, manipulation and gaslighting :/ It's why a lot of people who need psychiatric help end up dropping out or getting even worse than before. I'm sorry you were put through that just for moderating your instance.
@ljwrites Ennh, it's all part of the "job" I've taken on and I don't really mind engaging with it (I certainly could have just blocked them, either from my account or for my whole instance, and I don't think any of my users would have been displeased had I done so); it's just disheartening that someone who is supposedly a professional feels so entitled to ignore any evidence or arguments against their position.
Thanks for the supportive thoughts, though
@woozle I'm just happy we have that whole instance blocked off; what the user is spouting is very much in line with the instance policy, which is evidently to federate with everyone
