chavisory's post-it notes

If the monsters get in, we go to the roof.

Eating some fancy goat cheese that I didn’t like at all at first, but which has only improved with like three weeks in my refrigerator.

Starting to suspect that things like “I believe vaccines could trigger some cases of autism,” or “autism is an iatrogenic disease in some cases,” or “it could be that there’s a genetic predisposition, but an environmental trigger,” are really code for “I will never, ever dare to contradict another parent, about anything, literally ever.  We cannot ever say that a parent could be wrong.”

sockdreams.com is such a dangerous website omg you can drop so much money within the blink of an eye

I NEED ALL OF THEM

let me tell you about sockdreams okay. everything they have is cute and their “longer” socks which are for taller or curvier people are amazing. i am almost 6 feet tall and not a skinny lady and i bought some thigh highs thinking they’d end up being calf socks on me and just kind of resigning myself to this fate but when they arrived (in like two days, holy shit they mail out fast) not only did they pull all the way up without trouble, they managed to stay up and look cute. as. fuck. OP’s right yo, that website’s a threat to your wallet.

sockdreams is such a legitimate company and I love them a lot.

How could you do this to me.

It doesn’t matter what language you speak. Autism has no language

Suzanne Wright (via lovesforeverblind)

How is this inspiring? It’s from a doomy “autism as evil monster” video. It’s also a lie. Autistic people have our own languages of flapping and gesturing, and actually most of us can use language, it’s just a horrible quote.

And please, please don’t support autism speaks.

Obviously you guys are taking this the wrong way. I saw the video yes, while I do not support Autism Speaks I did like the quote. If you go deeper in the meaning, what I took from it was that no matter where you were located on the globe, autism could bring people together. No matter what language you spoke, if you were in a room with families of autistic individuals, you would still all have something to talk about together through experience. I can agree with you guys on the video though, it wasn’t that great regarding getting the message out there on the truth of autism, but it still made an impact.

Hey, soooo autistic people get told a lot that we’re just taking something the wrong way, or are unable to see things from the perspectives of others…when we object to misrepresentations that demean and endanger us?

Maybe don’t do that?

Like, the “impact” that the Wrights and their PSA’s have had on the autistic community has been very seriously not good?

Pfffffft.

Autism has a language.  (It has many languages.)

What Suzanne Wright means is that she doesn’t want to hear it.

Please help.

lichgem:

I’ve lost my source of income, and I need some help until I can figure out something else. I’m disabled, mentally ill, and basically alone. My needs are few, but without income, I’m afraid I won’t be able to meet them.

Donate to nymphbeast@gmail.com on Paypal if you can afford to. Please make a note that it’s for lichgem, since it’s not my Paypal. 

If you can’t afford to help, please signal boost. Thank you.

Literally everyone I know needs money, and I would just give everyone money who needs it if I could….

Have you seen the "The Kids Who Beat Autism" article that the New York Times published? It's so gross. asked by hakunamatata-noregrets

goldenheartedrose:

I did, and it’s bullshit.

It’s basically kids who have grown up in therapy, who have learned how to (successfully or sometimes unsuccessfully) suppress autistic behaviors.  That doesn’t make them less autistic. 

Only most of the kids in that article were not even repressing autistic behaviors.

(Aside from the one who had heartbreakingly taught himself not to feel joy so he wouldn’t flap his hands.)

They’ve got parents seeing what they choose to see and a lot of nonsensical ideas about what autism is, and that’s it.


New York - Brooklyn Bridge Sunset by (Philipp Klinger Photography)

I really love photography of the Brooklyn Bridge, but I’m increasingly curious…
How/when do all these photographers get these shots of the bridge with no people on it?
I’ve walked it a couple times, and you think it’s going to be, but it’s not even that pleasant of a walk because it’s so effing crowded.

Saying this will bother someone somewhere, but I’ll say it anyway.

amorpha-system:

"BECAUSE SOMEONE MIGHT MISUSE IT!" is a completely shitty reason for forcing people to thought-police themselves, to never even think about, explore, or investigate certain aspects of their identity, their life, their family, and/or their most fundamental experiences of the world— things that, in and of themselves, are completely harmless the vast majority of the time.

The fact that a minority of people have misused certain things, even if the misusers have been vocal, even if they have done concrete and undeniable harm, is still not a good enough reason to bind people’s minds in chains and cut them off from avenues of thought that could be anything from useful to profoundly and positively life-transforming.

the best is when you’re reminded that “nothing” is elizabethan slang for female genitals, so shakespeare literally titled his play

much ado about pussy

Ah, Shakespeare. Such fine and serious art. So serious.

Compared to things like autism and religion…I wouldn’t think that bisexuality would be so hard to understand.

But apparently it is.

I gotta admit, if people blew me off quite as often/as nastily as they blow off Dr. Quinn, I’d be tempted to be like “Okay, fine, die,” a lot more often than she is.

Was just thinking today about how I’ve now been accused of both “stigmatizing stigma,” and of being “prejudiced against prejudice.”

It’s not a bad record.
