do u ever get really annoyed that people talk about Mituna as though he is a caricature of disability like I have neurological issues and brain damage from epilepsy and I have literally forgotten how to use a can opener and spent the next five minutes crying bc my processing abilities are That Fucked Up it is nice 2 know that a character w the same problems as me is apparently offensive
very much. i think the three things that piss me off the most about how the fandom treats mituna are, in no particular order:
- infantilizing the guy into a harmless toddler so he will be more cuddly (usually this comes with turning Latula into his mommy, or worse, attaching her to another male character like a prop being handed around—usually to fucking Kankri, of all people, lol no)
- ignoring the Mituna we have been given, who is funny, challenging, and canon, in favor of creating a boring sollux-clone of a fantroll who isn’t disabled and is therefore more lovable somehow
- getting mad at hussie for going there even though going there gave us one of the funniest, most entertaining characters in the comic. he only got a couple scenes but he owned the shit out of the screen time he got.
also fuck anybody who thinks representation of the disabled is inherently insulting because they think disability is something shameful that should be hidden, they aren’t worth my time or yours.
