    I don't see how offhandedly wasting some teenager is shocking but offhandedly wasting an adult is totally fine. Like is there a stark border at 18 years of age, past which you can be murdered to humorous effect?

    Yes, actually

    still the same gag

    in gabe's case we don't care because he comes back anyway

    in mcninja it's just a nameless side character we're not meant to really care about

    the age line thing doesn't seem nearly as big a deal for violence as it is for nudity

    especially since this is just a drawing of a fictional character

    Also, didn't some guy a couple pages ago get strapped to a skateboard and immolated and pushed onto an elaborate trick course, trailing flames and screams of agony? Was that cool?

    He got better. Maybe this kid will have his brain reassembled by Luchador Healing too.

    I'm not sure it's cool to set a guy on fire for awhile even if you can heal his wounds afterwards. I mean I'd still be pretty upset, I would want to litigate probably

    The issue is it is a kid, and it's implied that he's dead forever. I've never seen anything like that in PA

    Yeah, but there's also some context in there... his head isn't exploding due to a gun or any real violence, it's arcane magic. Doesn't quite have the same oomph.

    well, as it's not an actual medical procedure I should hope not, but I would have thought that the similarities were self-evident enough so that I did not have to make a prolonged argument but I see that is not the case

    Man I have no idea what you're trying to get at, I was making humourous observations about that Dr. McNinja where the guy gets strapped to a skateboard and set on fire in order to entertain and amaze a crowd of onlookers.

    nah, i'm not studying nor am i practicing in an area where it would matter

    it sounds like a term for discrimination against able-bodied people, which i didn't think was a thing

    well think about the etymology
    sexism is discrimination based on sex
    ageism is discrimination based on age
    ableism is discrimination based on able wait that doesn't work

    I'm all for helping those with disabilities and making accommodations for them to be able to adapt in some way to society, but to assume that the fact all society is based on certain basic capabilities the vast majority of people have is somehow a bad thing is fairly unrealistic and entitled.

    when someone tells you that you are being ableist they are probably talking less about not letting quadriplegics be olympic swimmers and more about calling someone a 'retard' and complaining that someone psychologically scarred asking for trigger warnings is a pussy who doesn't belong on the internet

    It could also simply refer to naming a minor background character out loud.

    We had a student lecture an instructor across the hall for about an hour on how the fact we use term papers instead of term audio recordings was ableist. The student had no handicaps. Meanwhile, down the hall we have a blind PhD student in residence who can write legibly and has taught introductory writing for almost three years with great evaluations.

    The world is a strange place.
