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.
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.
I’d like to dedicate this post to the use of inclusive and sensitive language. I’m hoping to explain the significance and importance of using person-first language. It doesn’t stop there, though. Gender-neutral and inclusive language is just as important. There are so many simple ways to speak in…
No I’m sorry but you’re wrong with respect to person-first language. Would you also say we should refer to people as “people with blondness” instead of blonde people. Also, does “people with blondeness” not sound incredibly condescending and like their blondness is somehow attached to them or separate from them.
Well similarly, people with autism sounds strange to me. And I’m autistic. It’s best to refer to people how they prefer to be called, but a lot of autistic people prefer to be called autistic.
No. That’s something every person with an iPod does, not a sign of mental illness. You’re probably fine.
I would say it can be a form of stimming for (some) Autistic people like me. But that of course doesn’t mean it’s a symptom of OCD, people with OCD know best there. Nor does it mean every person who does it is Autistic, of course.
I was diagnosed with a bipolar disorder a short while back. I think everyone has heard of what bipolar is, so im not going to go into that. Im shattered. I sat crying till four in the morning, knowing you are a freak is the worst feeling in the world… The guy i like has adhd, and he blew up…
I feel for you, nothingaboutus-withoutus. I just can’t handle getting involved in between power tool usage and being used as a doorstop.
Do not worry, I understand! I haven’t been giving as long answers as I would have liked either because words aren’t coming to me very much right now.
Words are hard, I know that feel. Sometimes I feel super self-concious because although I apparently have a wide vocabulary of words I know the meaning of, I’m not the wordiest person and sometimes can barely manage a response to a roleplay and I use “said” way too often. Bleh.
That’s a pretty shitty Allistic you’ve got there, though. I’d chew them out, if I weren’t being forced to handle power tools intermittently.
Yes same here. IQ tests suck but when I have taken them it says my vocabulary is high and stuff. The amount of words I actually use on a day to day basis seems a lot smaller than my vocabulary though. And sometimes I just get overwhelmed like now.
