I’d like you to think about the fact that we Autistics see things every day that make us hurt, weep, scared, angry. Think about what your life would be like if you felt like you had to hide from the news and newspapers to avoid seeing the awful things people say about you every day. And think about how you would feel if you were hiding from the media and still had to hear those things anyway, whether it was from overhearing conversations other people were having on the bus or in the doctor’s waiting room, things you saw in books that weren’t even about autism, things that popped up on television shows you used to think were fun to watch until they mentioned you in horrible ways, etc. That is what autism awareness brings.

MAJOR TRIGGER WARNINGS IN THE VIDEO FOR TORTURE AND ABUSE. WATCH WITH CAUTION.

greencarnations:

yeah if you’re gonna ~light it up blue~ and raise money for Autism Speaks imma need you to watch this (disturbing content!)

that is what Autism Speaks supports. that is what you are supporting. congratulations. i hope you enjoy your fucking blue mani.

Just a warning on this video for torture and I think flashing lights.

There it is everyone, there’s the final testament you’ll ever need of just how bad Autism Speaks is, if you needed a final straw of proof, there it is before you in the form of an extremely fucked up video, proof doesn’t get stronger than that.

People can be quite confusing. A computer would never act like this, but people do it all the time.

This is my comic Blame. It’s taken me a VERY long time to create this (mentally not physically. Physically it only took me a little over a week to draw).

This describes my human interaction quite well!

I have a lot of difficulty online chatting even, unless it’s with people I know well (only two people really) and in person I can’t even say something simple like “hi”…
but I haven’t met the people I know well in person… I’m scared because I know I probably won’t be able to say a single word. =(

Rachel and I can still be like this after 10 years, now. We text each other all day while I’m at school and she’s at work. We text from across the house often, too. When together, we barely talk at times, especially her.It’s all okay, though, because we make it work :)
