Despite it being ever present, it never fails to surprise me how pervasive ableism towards autistic people is. And how often I've seen it used as an excuse to perform "justified harassment" of a person.
People need to chill and listen more and give people chances to explain themselves. I know we're all tired and paranoid, but we need to give each other space to not "know the rules" and such.
re: autism ableism
"But you're so smart in x and x, you just aren't applying yourself!"
"Everyone is a little autistic!"
"Grow up/The real world won't let that!"
My mother and dad denied my diagnosis and said shit like this for years and only now am I finally getting help because of just internalized shame of being broken.
Baby Boomer bullshit is a large portion of why only 15% of us on the spectrum have full time jobs.
re: autism ableism
Bad behavior, or it's all in my head.
Like yea. The fact I can't drown out or get used to noise, or even keep up face to face contact without tiring myself out.
But nah, I don't "look" autistic. I mask too well.
Masking legimately is massive energy hog. And small talk tires the fuck out of me.
I barely have the energy to socialize face to face at work, forget doing it well after for my own pleasure.
I think I fail at being human.
Living with a condition making me more prone to dissociation from not only emotions by entire thought processes I can say that's pretty damn accurate to with what I've expiereced.
Being an amateur historian it ends up shining a light on just how reliant people are on conditioning for learning to process ideas.
That wouldn't be conservatism. You've kinda just listing gripes Marxists, anarchists, and Communists of all flavors have been being about for a century.
It turns out left-right political spectrums have a hard time being a definate thing when market liberalism / Capitalist organziational models fall apart as you blur class.
Sedna: You're just under the left wing libertarian/mutualist bent.
But rebranding left wing ideas of system with a new seemingly conservative bent is very Senator Huey Long of you.
Sedna: "New conservative" Falls apart as a label seeing as historically speaking. Most scientists, some economists, and other folks in left wing movements have mentioned the direction of capital not really being based upon any investment that takes too long and doesn't directly produce dollars. Or if it looks good.
Technological and scientific progress is a lot more than just "Do it bigger".
Thea: Would be an excellent long period camping partner and Forrester.
Thea: Yoari are you just the Montessori teacher living that body?
Sedna: - breathes into paper bag-
Sedna: I wake up to hear from Thea you're playing God to create the equivalent of meatsuit attendant.
Genderless species for your next fursona:
Dragon: Dragons come in every configuration. It's just accepted.
Unicorn/Alicorn: Always purest gay, if you have to ask you don't get it.
Fae: There's no elvish word for 'Heterosexual'
Demonic/Angelic host: Several conjoined gold rings studded with unknowable eyes surrounded by crow's wings is a timeless look.
Pokemon: Because do we really wanna know? Too cute to care.
Moogle/Chocobo: The only two true genders.
@kit stuck in the 70s and being so freakin cutteeeee
