Why Abed is Important?
I’m having so many emotion about this question. And especially, the answer.
Abed is Important because he is neuroatypical, and he is happy and sad and victorious and bitter and full of range. Abed is neuroatypical, and he is a Muslim, and both of those identities doesn’t shape him or make him a stereotype. Abed is neuroatypical, and he lives and smiles and laughs and does weird shenanigans. Abed is a lot of things, and it is okay.
It is such a great message.
Abed is important because he’s a brown-skinned autistic person who is not pigeonholed by either of those things, but cannot be separated from either of those things, while simultaneously having important relationships, goals, and having his interests and activities validated by the show’s narrative.
Abed is important because he’s a Muslim American, a disabled person with a sexuality, an introverted extrovert, and constantly challenges assumptions the viewer might be tempted to make about him.
Abed is important because he’s a disabled person on television who is presented as having inherent worth that isn’t contingent on creating meaning for the people around him. Abed is important because he’s NOT always okay and is just as neurotic about interpersonal relationships and just as prone to existential crises as his allistic friends. He has a weird relationship with his dad and a complicated one with his mom and he struggles with having romantic relationships that last and he exists and lives and generally is as full of contradictions and illusions as anyone else.
