Anonymous asked: I think that you need to try taking care of a low functioning, non verbal, violent, autistic who cannot use the washroom by themselves.

Why? What do you think this will change? I appreciate that looking after disabled person can be hard. But do you really think that looking someone with personal care needs will make me think it’s ok to abuse disabled people? Or that we should be cured because we’re inconvenient? Or that we’re not really human? Or that the inconvenience we cause to people around us is more important than our human rights?

Do you really, really think that an autistic person being aggressive will make me think that autistic people should be eliminated?

And seriously, why are all you people so obsessed with verbal speech? It’s really weird.

And since you didn’t say, I’m not actually sure what view of mine it is that you are objecting to.

I think that it’s very easy for people to throw autistic people under the bus when they are “non-verbal and violent.” At no point do they consider that these folks are considered non-communicative because they do not speak, and that their communication is routinely ignored and devalued. This leads to personal boundaries being transgressed, which leads to more communication which is ignored, which can eventually lead to violence.

If I say to someone, “Stop doing that,” and they don’t, and I eventually resort to violence because they are continually violating my boundaries, then that is accepted because I can usually communicate with mouthnoises. If I were unable to do so, my communication would be summarily dismissed by these same people.

That is why, when my son is having mouthnoise problems (his ability to use them is sturdier than mine, but not infallible), I give him my phone and he types. I give him a pen and he writes. I give him alternative options. Sometimes I interpret his behaviour (not by deciding what it means but by saying, “I think you’re feeling x/needing some y/whatever, is that right?” and giving him the opportunity to speak in gestures).

It is the parent’s job, the teacher’s job, the carer’s job to afford us opportunities to communicate in a way that works for us. It is not our job to learn to communicate in a way which we CANNOT master, in order to be as convenient as possible.

A Short Halloween PSA

tearlessrain:

Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:

I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.

So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.

when alien races only have two genders. when those two genders are male and female. when that alien race adheres to the human gender binary. when female aliens have breasts. when alien races look exactly like humans except maybe they’re orange or purple

this was supposed to be the year i got a summer job

got my driver’s liscence

got a boyfriend

passed all my classes

actually did stuff over the weekends

but instead

i didn’t get hired anywhere

i’m usually too depressed to drive

the guy i was so sure i had a chance with is in a relationship (which is apparently HILARIOUS just because he’s dating a guy!)

i’m too depressed to do the majority of my homework

all i do on the weekends is lie in my room feeling sorry for myself

all because i got my hopes up SO much about him and i guess i just waited too long and…

i’m so fucking pathetic

also did i mention i’m at risk of flunking out of goucher?

like that was already thing but like that makes it 10x worse

It’s that time of year again.
Just say no to racist costumes people.
Blackface is racist.
Dia de Los Muertos “costumes” are racist
Costuming off of someone else’s culture is racist.
Do your part in making this Halloween season enjoyable for everyone!
