Is there ableist language or behavior?

This category refers to use of slurs, demeaning language, or abuse of neurodiverse and disabled people. This includes using "autistic" as an insult. This category is important because mocking disabled people or comparing their conditions to being bad is an ableist trope found in many forms of media that feed into a stereotypical narrative.

Later, the mother yells at her, saying, "are you some kind of idiot," for displaying the same behavior. The same character's art is also called the r word

R****d and its variants get thrown around a lot and one episode has a disabled character defend his right to say it. Same with "cr*ppled." Though there are disabled characters who exist outside of being jokes like Jimmy and Nathan, a lot of jokes are made at their expense. Generally a lot of casual ableism that's to be expected if you know how South Park operates.

The word "r***rded" is used in reference to the main character. It's spoken by a character already known not to be a good person, and is sardonically sampled in a remix made by the main character later.

In season 1, the main character dismisses characters who have issues with addiction or mental illnesses and berates them for it. This stops after the first season and it's learned he deals with some level of addiction + mental illness as well. In MAG 122: Zombie, while not directly stated to be about mental illness, the statement giver's attitude towards those he perceives as processing emotions incorrectly reads as such.

Disabled cats usually get shoved into the medicine den as they are “unfit to be warriors” there are some exceptions to this like Brightheart, but usually disabled characters are pushed off to the side
