This is a blog for me to post political or more personal things (currently, it's been very much autistic-related). It's just a sub-blog so I can't follow anyone on here. My regular blog is aboutbeautyandbrutality.
I'm also bipolar, but I rarely talk about it on this blog.

Interviewer from Oxford asks: “Are most scientists and artists on the autism spectrum?”
Are you kidding? Where would this wild assumption come from? Oxford University has even published studies on the afflictions that ARE correlated with genius: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and…
Wow no. I don’t think MOST autistic people are geniuses of course. I am autistic, I am not a genius although my IQ is quite high (but IQ tests are not all they’re cracked up to be definitely). Still, I don’t feel I’m going to be a great mind of the world or anything, it’s not my ambition and well I have a lot of mind fogginess most of the time that makes it hard for me to feel intelligent.
But that doesn’t mean NO autistic people have been great genuises. You’re ignoring evidence that suggests otherwise.
LYNN — She certainly doesn’t look different from any other typical seventh grader, dressed casually in black slacks, a white print top and coordinating sweater.
She is polite, if a bit reserved and quiet upon first meeting, but then she lets her violin do the talking.
Natalia Beos is playing the difficult opening strains of Bach’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor with a jaw-dropping precision and expression that belie her 13 ½ years. It’s the piece that got her selected from among 900 instrumentalists and vocalists for Junior Northeast District Orchestra in January. Two other young musicians from Lynn made the cut before the judges of the Mass. Music Educators Association: clarinetist Brandon Von and singer Ismael Aquino, both students at Breed Middle School…
She didn’t “overcome” her autism to do this, it’s offensive to autistic people to suggest that.
How many Aspies/autistics are there here who feel male even though they are or were born female? I’ve noticed a lot on Wrong Planet and I thought that was interesting because I have always felt male and some people say that autism is the “extreme male brain”.
I’m afab (ugh i dont like the whole born female thing because i wasnt born female i was just born genitals and assigned as female) and autistic but I still think the whole extreme male brain stuff is bullshit. Also seems to erase transfeminine autistic people. Plus I do find my gender identity to be related to my autism in some ways, but not in the extreme male brain way. I do not feel male, I am agender. I don’t feel like I fit in any gender.
Female-to-male transgendered people â known as transmen â have more autistic traits than typical heterosexual men and women, and more than those who wish to switch gender in the opposite direction, according to new research.
My old doctor and I have long theorized that there are corollary genetic traits to gender dysphoria. For example many trans-women score highly in mathematics and the sciences. Also, history abounds with the notion that transgender people were held in esteem or notoriety because of special abilities.
This makes me horrible uncomfortable, despite being an autistic trans person.
