some extra info
— if you need something specific cw’d, please don’t hesitate to ask!
— feel free to send follow requests, though i would appreciate it if you interacted with me at least once before! if i refuse yours, it’s probably nothing personal.
— do let me know if i mess up. i want to try to become a better person. relevant info: i am white, i do not experience transmisogyny, and i am able-bodied.
social media and interacting with people can be difficult for me, so consider
— if i’m not sure how to respond to something, or if i can’t interact anymore, i’m likely to just favorite your toot and not respond.
— i feel like i’m terrible at articulating ideas and arguing/debating with people. i’m really self-conscious about that, so i usually never do it.
— i’m literally never trying to be rude or mean, so if i come across that way, it’s unintentional. please let me know so i can make amends.
is this what the kids call a banger? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKYBhu09iZU
A guide for non autistic people on how not to support ableism in April
Autism Speaks is bad, they want autistic people ‘cured’, otherwise known as eugenics. They are non autistic people speaking over us.
There are more horrible things AS do but this would be a very long post if I included them all.
Do not support or promote them.
ABA is a form of torture to force autistic people to mask our behaviour. It is not a helpful ‘therapy’. Even if someone didn’t have a bad experience it doesn’t negate the people who have been traumatised.
Light it up blue is an autism speaks event.
Light is up red is an autism community event in opposition to AS speaks.
Autism awareness is an autism speaks phrase. Autism acceptance is an autism community phrase.
The blue puzzle piece and puzzle pieces in general as a symbol are a red flag. It’s from the idea us autistic people are ‘incomplete‘.
We speak, sign and vocalise for ourselves. We do not need any NT people to communicate for us or decide our needs and rights.
i’d pay to see this somehow
