If you need anything tagged, let me know, though, as a fair warning, I do not always remember (it's something I'm working on) I do try my best, my brain just doesn't always cooperate. If this would put you in danger, please do not follow me. I'm really sorry, but I don't want to hurt anyone, and I'm just not in a place mentally where I can be trusted to tag everything I should.
I hope you have a nice day!
I do not engage with Terfs.
Autism isn’t something a person has, or a “shell” that a person is trapped inside. There’s no normal child hidden behind the autism. Autism is a way of being. It is pervasive; it colors every experience, every sensation, perception, thought, emotion, and encounter, every aspect of existence. It is not possible to separate the autism from the person—and if it were possible, the person you’d have left would not be the same person you started with.
This is important, so take a moment to consider it: Autism is a way of being. It is not possible to separate the person from the autism.
Therefore, when parents say,
I wish my child did not have autism,
what they’re really saying is,
I wish the autistic child I have did not exist, and I had a different (non-autistic) child instead.
Read that again. This is what we hear when you mourn over our existence. This is what we hear when you pray for a cure. This is what we know, when you tell us of your fondest hopes and dreams for us: that your greatest wish is that one day we will cease to be, and strangers you can love will move in behind our faces.”

The protestors in Ferguson are true heroes and we need to follow their example in solidarity. Organize solidarity actions and connect them to local issues in your own cities. What’s happening in Ferguson is not isolated, the racist police brutality is common in every city.
Keep on supporting the protesters in Ferguson!
I’d be very thankful and gracious!
you can just tell that Nicki Minaj is the kind of person that when you’re telling a story and everyone else in the group is talking over you, she’s making direct eye contact with you and paying extra attention so that you don’t get discouraged and stop mid-story
this is actually so true
