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.

One character dismisses the suicide note of a young bipolar woman as 'attention seeking' and no big deal. They are very critical and lack empathy for this woman, making her suffering into calculated ploys for drama.

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.

People don't really take Chidi's anxiety seriously/just see it as a problem and frequently make him make decisions that they themselves could easily make even though they know he struggles with that. On several occasions characters try to "cure" him that way

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.
