small story about typing quirks kinda

jolyne_irl 5/18/2021 06:04 am 229

so basically i came across this incredibly intricate and extremely difficult to read quirk. it was posted on tiktok by one of those people who says "dont translate it it gives me trauma!!" people, and when someone called them out for having a quirk that was impossible to read they said they were "ableist for not liking their typing quirk". even though the person who was asking them to post translations was literally dyslexic and the OP (with the quirk) has in their bio that theyre not ND.

so is this a valid reason not to post translations? just curious

also someone asked me to post a translation for my typing quirk yesterday but i dont even have one i just dont use autocorrect

I don't like invalidating people's triggers, but that just sounds like a load of baloney. Plus they were ACTUALLY being ableist. If providing translations is triggering to them they just shouldn't be posting videos with text.

@le_cl0s3ted_p3rs0n: thats fine for me, but others may have a hard time reading it, so its good that you translate yours!!

(No. They should provide translations or a key, either way, Like I do. Check my bio.)

(If they are typing like this and it's hard to read, they should, and have no reason not to.)

the tiktok with like nagito or something in the bg? imo if the quirk is just like swapping z's and s's or something yeah you shouldnt have to put translations but the one from the vid definetley should have a translation, or at least let people in the comments translate it or something

if you arent comfortable with people translating it then you're probably better off not using such an intricate one, just my take though idk

@jolyne_irl: yeah, thats the kinda of typing quirk that needs a translation. it just looks like a bunch of symbols to me,,

@KrashKablamBlam: heres a sample, im just typing this on my computer while looking at the video:

| |= ¥0|_| |)0/\/7 1| |< 3 |-| 0 \/\/ | 7¥|* £ j|_|$7 60 /-\ \/\/ /-\ ¥

i figured out that it said "if you don't like how i type just go away", but still, it literally looks like a keyboard smash

i'd say no. if having a tq translated is a trigger for them (and this may sound mean, but), that's not anyone else's problem. when it comes to things as niche and specific as that , you are responsible for your own triggers.

so yeah, there's my take.
