Okay, I know that the "Self Demonstrating"-labels are a cute tradition, but isn't this kind of mocking actual dyslexics?
Yeah this is sort of offensive...
I am going for it.
"(On a side note, no, L is not dyslexic. He'd get the letters in people's names all mixed up.)"
What the snot does that mean?
Obviously they mean Mr. L!
Or L from Death Note
Would anyone greatly object to splitting the bulk of the description into a Useful Notes page? There's way, way, waaaaaaaay more stuff on how dyslexia works in Real Life than its use in fiction, which is what the trope is about. Specifically, I'm thinking of moving the first three paragraphs and the paragraph on dyslexia in other countries, and leaving a message about finding more accurate info in the UN section.
Well, no one has objected so I'm going to go ahead and do it. Useful Notes page away!
In fairness to the people who think that dyslexia involves mixing up the order of words in a sentence or letters in a word, there is sometimes an element of that. But it's not that you instinctively spell words backwards, a better example would be spelling "friend" as "freind", which is a mistake anyone might make but dyslexics are more prone to.
The same applies to words in a sentence, in that a dyslexic is far more likely to mix up the order of words within a sentence (and usually not the first or last ones, for that matter) than they are to start saying the sentence backwards.
Funny thing is what ever troper wrote that note about L must have had in mind Light because its not important for L not to get people's names mixed up since Lights the one writing people's names in the notebook, not L.

How well does it match the trope?
