Anonymous asked: Hi! I have a good friend who constantly "calls out" people in her surroundings on Facebook by slut shaming and fat shaming. This is not okay, but I'm not sure what the best approach is. She was diagnosed at 16 with Asperger's. This is something she's very open about and discusses frequently. A friend she introduced me to that she met through a local organization for autistic teens also has Asperger's. but he has never done anything like that. Do you have any advice or wisdom to share? Thank you!
Wait, she IS slut shaming and fat shaming, or she’s calling out people FOR slut shaming and fat shaming?… I think you mean the first one, right?
Regardless of having Aspergers, you don’t do that shit and she needs to stop. There are plenty of autistic bloggers on Tumblr and beyond that discuss activism without resorting to that; this is not a product of her Aspergers and that has zip to do with this situation. Just approach her as you would anyone else.
