gnommes asked: Why is it bad to say "use your words"? I was just wondering because I work in a daycare and my co-workers use that phrase everyday with the children, one of which isn't able to talk due to Angelman syndrome.
It posits verbal communication as the only valid communication.
Autistic people have had things withheld from us because we could NOT use our words, i.e., respond verbally.
Imagine if you will that you’re a 4 year old who is thirsty and wants a cup of milk. You know where it is, but you’re not capable of getting it yourself. And you have a therapist or teacher or someone that you can ask for it, but you can’t make the words form in your mouth. And that teacher says to you, “use your words” and you CAN’T. Can you imagine how frustrating that is? See, that’s what happens to people like me every day. Even as an adult.
And when you posit verbal communication as the only way to obtain consent, the implications are huge. They are that nonverbal autistic adults are not adults at all, but rather, children. You also imply that consent that is not verbal is not consent after all, so disabled people cannot consent to sex if they can’t verbalize it. On the other hand, you also are saying that disabled people who use nonverbal communication to say “no” won’t have that heard because it’s not a valid denial of consent.
This phrase is wrong. And it needs to die, honestly. Even if there weren’t nonverbal people. Children are often struggling to find the right words to say, so saying “use your words” is just downright frustrating. Even if you think they’re capable of doing so, it’s wrong.
Looking back, I think we can identify where Amy Pond becomes such an accidentally interesting character.
Moffat writes that she’s had four psychiatrists growing up. Because that’s his joke, it serves his story, and it’s No Big Deal in the kind of depthless reality he’s writing in. People don’t have interiority in his fairytale/LogicProblem world so… four psychiatrists? Eh.
Gillan doesn’t pick up on that. So she plays someone who’s had four psychiatrists growing up. You don’t get treated under four psychiatrists for having a persistent childhood fantasy. But you might for being someone like the Amy Pond who Karen Gillan plays
There’s an interview where Moffat says, “I think Amy was probably routinely feisty when I wrote her. And Karen made her just a little bit madder.”
She didn’t though. She just had a go at playing what he wrote because it didn’t occur to her that he didn’t mean it.
(Reblogging for the evening crowd.)
Not to mention that four psychiatrists during your childhood is just… I mean, *what happened*?
It is possible that Aunt Sharon became concerned about Amelia’s fantastical make-believe and sought psychiatric intervention. There is a parellel in The Big Bang, where Amelia is so insistent that stars actually exist and her aunt brings in a psychiatrist, so it is plausible Aunt Sharon took a rather heavy-handed approach to (what adults would see as) a little pretend play about an imaginary friend.
But *four* psychiatrists? There is no way four trained mental health professionals would get involved in a child with an overactive imagination, even if she was prone to biting them. If Moffat is trying to hint that Amelia believed SO MUCH!!! in the Doctor that adults tried to take him away from her, he’s being woefully unrealistic.
(Not to mention that his conflation of ‘feisty’ and ‘a bit madder’ in the above interview suggests a fairly nasty misunderstanding of what mental illness actually entails, but I digress; I’m not surprised Moffat stereotypes mental disorders as well as women in general.)
For a child to have four seperate pyschatrists indicates a much deeper and darker problem.
