This is me when I'm not doing the stuff for my regular blog. That means not necessarily as careful, not necessarily as able to do things, lots of things could be different than usual. I don't do trigger warnings, and I have genuine well thought out reasons that aren't just some kind of callous BS.
Trying to find the right words: Does anyone else find things written by adults using a child's 'voice' creepy & triggering as fuck?
They really, REALLY bother me. Not like upset bother, but ohgodohgodohgodnononononodon’tdon’tdon’tNOOOOyouaren’tinthathead triggerbother?
I suspect it’s a function of people shoving words & feelings & such into my mouth & otherwise attributing to me…
They make me want to throw things.
As in, BOTH things parents write “phonetically” that the child actually said. (But they never write their own speech phonetically.) AND when parents write things the child didn’t say, as if the child actually said it. (Like saying shit from the child’s point of view. Like when my mother saw me snuggling a kitten and said “You’re my favorite” in a childlike voice as if it was what I was thinking. She did this a lot and it contributed to my communication problems.) I get just as pissed off and freaked out when people write from the point of view of their cats.
