"I don't have the spoons to get called out" is huge bullshit. Especially because I rarely do public callouts and try to do my best to engage someone's actual position. If I'm saying, "Hey, this is pretty misogynistic, actually" that's not me trying to steal away your spoons because I don't think that being chronically ill means you have to be a piece of shit because you can't do any better.
When a person is called out they have the rest of their life to confront it
Ideally it would be right then and there for sure
@Food I know enough disabled and chronically ill people to know this is just an excuse for not having to deal with criticism from the left and it's frustrating. Hell. "I don't have the spoons to argue, but I'll think about it later" would be enough to get me to back off. But, "How DARE you, I'm chronically ill!" is not that.
@cambrian_era i often interpret that refusal as a sort of: “i didn’t budget for anything i don’t enjoy to happen today”
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
