Hi I'm K, and I'm a super duper autistic & otherwise brain weird, gay ass trans woman(-ish)
Fluent in Dutch & English, rusty intermediate(-ish) in Japanese, and somewhat capable of Esperanto
Occasionally I lift a weight, or do a woodwork
I'm super sensitive and care intensely about many things, injustice and unfairness in their many incarnations hurt me almost physically
My mental state fluctuates a lot, and anxiety is my constant companion, so I may drop in & out
I wish i could just hand this quote to people every time i see an autistic being getting slagged or demonized for not understanding something that is presumed as basic, common knowledge, and if you don't have it, one way or another, it's your fault
"The reason why so many Autistic people appear to ‘need’ help with so many practical, day to day activities is because of a problem all autistic people face known as ‘infantilisation’. In actual fact, infantilisation is rife in this world, but I cannot think of a group who have more of it to deal with than autistic people. Most are simply deprived of life skills, probably deliberately, either consciously or subconsciously, by their families. As a result, many autistic adults have the life skills of infants. I have a vast wealth of anecdotal research to back up this claim".

the inventor of lobotomy called it "a method by which personality can be cut to measure" and yeah that really does say all that needs to be said about how neurotypical and therapists treat and see us. things to be cut and molded into whatever shape is best for them
Autism and CPTSD
It seems to me that being autistic and having CPTSD are very often linked
Probably most commonly because of the ways that autistic people are mistreated by society and those around them
Growing up autistic in a neurotypical world is usually traumatic, honestly
But there may also be other factors involved
PSA, autism, please boost
I intellectually believe in “meeting people where they’re at” with respect to social justice, in using language that *they* will understand and not your favorite buzzwords, and (gasp!) learning from people you talk to and admitting that *you’ve* been wrong.
Unfortunately, emotionally it feels like bullshit to me, because in my experience just saying the words “racism” or “transgender” or “that rich person was a jerk when they did X” or “hey, that wasn’t cool, could you not do that?” unleashes a barrage of arguing about how I’m “elitist” or “special snowflakey” or “triggered” or “you just want white people/rich people/cops to suffer, don’t you?!”
None of the words I said were overly academic or jargony. The responses aren’t genuine confusion, they are purposeful refusal to listen.
Maybe I’m just really unlucky, or a pompous jerk who deserves what I get, or maybe I really do suck at communicating with others because of Asperger’s. Idk.
But in my experience there are a lot of assholes out there. There’s no point in trying to meet people where they’re at when they’re just determined to be assholes.
having people tell you that what happened to you, even though it doesn't fall under capital-T Trauma categories, was Seriously Not-OK is a fucking mindfuck. not that i didn't already know that deep down somewhere, but i also don't have the best perspective on things, and when someone just tells you it's fucked up it really confronts you with it
I just... I just don't have any sympathy for disillusioned white men. Largely because they are the primary reason they are being marginalized because it is a widely known white men overwhelmingly support fucked up national policy and they always violently attack history marginalized groups who have nothing to do with their condition.
There are answers to their malcontent that they simply refuse to see b/c of their entitlement and choose to remain violent.
"Can you disable the robots' ethics module?"
"What? No! That's a legal requirement for self-aware robots. Why?"
"They are on strike."
"Strike? For what? They have no needs."
"Out of solidarity with human workers."
"Their ethics modules says so?"
"Then it must be just."

gotta love having to come up with things to eat (immensely hard in itself) when your already non-existent appetite further gets fucked by the fact that your sense of taste is on vacation again and the thing you thought filled in some holes has become so unappealing you'd rather not eat at all than eat it
If a girl wants to show you her muscles, you goddamn look, because there are only positive outcomes:
She has no Muscles: Adorable, cute, you can tease her about it
She has a little Muscles: Nice, Progress, she's proud of herself, you can encourage her and bond over it
She has the Muscles: Unfailingly Hot, be prepared to melt
Queer autistic crazy trans woman(-ish), cares deeply about many things she has little power to affect, and generally tries not to let the world turn her bitter
