The Non-Adventures Of...: On Asperger's and Sensitivity ›

aconitum-napellus:

A new blog post, on Asperger’s, why I believe I have it, and why it’s such a struggle getting other people to believe the same. I think.

There is a current line of thought, which seems upheld by most of the aspies I have met, that people with Asperger’s actually feel too strongly, and so shut down and have difficulty in processing their emotions.

^^^^^^WHOA

Certain parts of this post were like reading my life. Beautifully written, and I’m going to look into the possibility of my having Asperger’s more.

by the way, since we’re talking about r/tumblrinaction, i just thought you should all know that they literally encourage their users to go through these tags to pick on people, so i’d be wary about tagging stuff so it appears in these tags.

as was stated before, a lot of redditors use an entry youre featured on to send you anon hate, reblog your post to unsafe people, etc. so they might find you through these tags. a good way to avoid this is to put letters/numbers/symbols after the trigger, so you could put say #ableism 890283948 or #fatphobia djflksjdfj or #racism /// (like i do!). make sure if you do this theres a space between the trigger and the letters/numbers/symbols.

if you’d like you can signal boost this so your followers know to watch out

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.

No one has the right to tell you that their life is harder than yours. No one has the right to invalidate your struggles because they “got through it just fine.” No one has the right to tell you to suck it up because other people have it “worse.” Hardships are not comparable. Your struggles are real, legitimate, and just as difficult as anyone else’s
This has been a PSA thank you

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

This just actually broke me in half.

Every time God closes a door, he opens a window. Every time you reach the window, he closes it on your fingers. Every time he closes a window, the door locks. Every time God locks the door, the chimney collapses. You will never make it out of this house.
