Where were you when SJWs started appropiating terms from terminally ill people to justify their lazyness?
Apparently if you are an aspie special snowflake you have a limited number of energy "spoons" to do things before you get tired.
>mfw this autistic bullshit
I fucking hate millennials.
i must have like 0 spoons i can barely bring myself to brush my teeth 1nce a day
>The spoon theory is an analogy originally used by some people with a disability (tumblr users) and people with chronic illness (feminists) to describe their everyday living experience when their disability or illness (physical or mental) presents in a reduced amount of energy available for productive tasks.
It's true, you work on limited motivation. If you work a hard job, you know at some point you stop trying and just pretend to work.
What this theory forget, is that you can create spoons by doing things you like. Real autists can't do that but normies, like you, me or aspergers can.
>"son, will you take the bins out?"
99% of people in the 10,000 years of human civilization didn't get to do what they liked, but what was needed for survival.
You are not different or special.
This is why the welfare state needs to die.
>look it up
>only one actual source, a book, the rest are just articles about the book
>some bitch who wrote a book
>no scientific studies
>no psychological evaluations
Is "lazy fuck" suddenly inadequate as a term now or something?
I said: things you enjoy.
I don't like social interaction either, but there is others things. A walk in the wood, a sport, a particular activities.
Just seeing the things you have done in the past give you the motivation to do more. I just finished to redo my kitchen today, you can't know how many spoons that give me on the future. And I probably would not have the motivation to do the kitchen if I hadn't made changes in the bathroom.
There is not an arbitrary number of spoon for each people, what you do and what you did gave you the spoons.
If they are going to quantify things based on a currency, they should go consider ADP/ATP (Adenosine Di/Triphosphate) as the standard which is literally the body's chemicals releasing energy upon conversion. But those Tumblrtards wouldn't know that because they study worthless shit like Gender Studies and the like.
Don't encourage retards to start infecting real science.
When I hear ATP/ADP, I think science, and might end up wasting my time reading it.
When I hear "uefguugg muh spewns!", I can instantly discard it.
>Be white male
>sit on my ass all day shitposting
>mfw I have infinite spoons
>sjw movement is just a ploy to steal my spoons.
quads speak the truth.
I don't understand this theory. Doing things requires energy and some people have more energy than others whilst energy for certain tasks varies from person to person. I get that.
But what the fuck is with the spoons? Why the need to infantilise such a simple concept?
It's the need to feel special and catered to. If they had energy like normal people, then it means they are indeed normal, and their lazyness becomes unexcusable.
However, if aspies have "8 limited spoons per day" then they can sit on their asses all day, ask to be catered to and complain that "they are misunderstood".
why do tumblrinas behave like children and expect to be taken seriously?
>get a call from work
>'nah sorry m8 I'm all outta spoons'
>'bah gawd the patriarchy strikes again, will it ever end?'
>lose your Empire
>lose your home islands to muslims
>shitpost about a 33 year old war on /pol/ to feel some sense of national pride
How many spoons does it take to wake up to the sound of this?
Someone explain a quebecer what the fuck this anglo shit is about. Now.
Is this a meme? What the fuck?
>spoons fall out of my pockets
>day is fucked
Did fucking SJW's get jealous of String Theory so they made some shit up with fucking spoons?
>String Theory too privileged, it's all over everywhere
>Spoon Theory is finite, therefore needs to be treated with respect or else the fabric of the universe is undone
SJW is a mental disorder. This is beyond retarded.
Do you guys realize how stupid this meme is? Seriously, it would offend us to be called mestizos or Mexicans... since there are some of them here. But there are literally no niggers at all. It's so ridiculous it doesn't even phase us.
Here is some humor I whipped up last spoon thread
To a sjw 'work' is either tumblr shitposting, making up oppression or existing.
Fucking shits have never worked a day in their lives which is why they have the time to be as vocal as they are.
>Spoons are an intangible unit of measurement used to track how much energy a person has throughout a given day.
>unit of measurement
More post-modern pseudo-science bullshit covering up that fact that it's just a shield for being a useless moron who complains a lot.
>How many spoons does it take to wake up to the sound of this?
Britain just got rekt. Argentina might have lost the falklands, but UK will lose whole british isles to Ahmeds.
Why is it that the left only wants to give people tools and excuses to remain weak? There is never a focus on bettering yourself or overcoming your personal weaknessws. Only a celebration OF weakness.
Pretend to need spoons. Then ask SJWs to share their spoons because we're so low. They agree and we take all their spoons. Then destroy the fake spoons because the concept is stupid. SJWs have no more spoons.
Okay. This isn't new.
But I don't get why fucking spoons. Holy shit.
Say 'enegery' or fuck even 'Action Points'. Why fucking spoons holy shit.
It pisses me off when friend talk about that shit. Spoons as a system of measurement makes no sense.
It's because they're the equivalent of a drunk cripple on crutches talking shit.
If you punch someone like that, you'll kill him. You want to slap the taste out of his mouth, but you're going to jail if you break his pencil neck.
>tfw you have 10,000 spoons but all you need is a knife...
>/.../ and crush the patriarchy!"
Every. Fucking. Time.
What is sad about this is not the metaphor but:
1. How they think inventing a unit is fine without a means to measure it; it's a sign of scientific illiteracy.
2. They're reinventing the wheel here since I'm sure that the energy that the brain and muscles consume in various activities can and has been measured.
3. Smart people are shown to have more efficient brains and less stress so based on their own words there is reason to believe that stupidity is the disease here.
It's signaling, anon.
If they said something immediately intelligible to the majority of people, it would no longer be a way to demonstrate you're in the cult.
And now, in some graduate studies course somewhere, there is a lesson plan dedicated to teaching this buffoonery. Just because some Cultural Marxist labeled it a "theory" doesn't magically give it any weight, but they'll try to sell it as such.
Job security, perhaps.
Okay. If you're developmentally challenged, or a small child, or brain damaged in some way, then yes, this is a neat, memorable way to organize your day.
It has absolutely no application to healthy adults, however. OR it does, but then you have 120 spoons to deploy in a day if the aspie only has 12.
It's Sesame Street, essentially. Or like watching Sesame Street and then congratulating yourself for getting the maths sections correct.
>Collecting real spoons? Sure.
I have exactly three collectible spoons that were given to me as gifts by the mother of this girl I was dating in high school. She thought I collected them. I didn't even know that was a thing, and for two years, I received one for christmas and two on my birthdays.
We still laugh about this.
The metaphor is fine. I know somebody that used this to explain her energy to me because she suffers from a disease that weakened her body and makes her suffer from random periods of fever and fatigue. It's stupidly rare too. (TRAPS if you are interested)
It does make me fume though that these special snowflakes are using this to justify being pieces of shit.
Trigger warning is as well.
It is real, I met a girl who was really triggered by talking about sexual abuse. (Do not know why). Sweat on forehead, hands shaking, hard bite on lips, eyes have this 100-yard stare. The whole package.
a) no SJW has anything even remotely close.
b) her therapist has told her that she should actively avoid coming into situations that make her like that. (The word uncomfortable, does *not* describe this). That is the exact opposite of what SJWs are trying to do. She would speak in private with a professor about her problems, an what to avoid because of that. Not publically, ever.
c) A trigger warning would probably trigger her
How the fuck does anyone take these cretins seriously?
This is the biggest crime of SJWs. They take away attention from people who probably need it, and then of course ruin it for everybody.
I fucking hate shit like this. Boils my blood.
This was somewhat believable till I read the bottom part about being able to borrow spoons from the next day. Well that means its all bullshit. If you can force yourself to do a few extra things tonight than tomorrow will not be affected... God damnit these people dont think...
