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.
"fucking allistics. i swear to fuck. why is it so hard to just listen and hear that, yes, this is offensive to us, and to stop? but noooooooo. ~other autistic people~, who don't even have to exist, validate her infantile and frankly masturbatory reasons to get an offensive tattoo. wonderful."
"Seriously? In case you decided to skip over some words, I said most. Not all. I dont even see why you're being rude about this. I support Autism probably just as much as you do. Everybody does things differently, but I guess it doesnt matter since its not what you agree with. If you get mad because someone has a different opinion and you talk down their reasonings, you have a lot of work to do for yourself. Autism isnt an excuse to be rude to someone."
“I support Autism probably just as much as you do. ”
"Yes I know tattoo are forever. I have one myself. YOU may not agree with the puzzle idea, hell more people may agree with you as well. But not everyone disagrees with it. I've worked with hundreds of kids around the U.S and most like the puzzle piece. If you dont like my puzzle design, fine, but really, quit bashing because YOU dont like it. If we want to pull the individual card, then doesnt that mean everyone has their own opinion? So stop tryin to talk someone down for a different opinion."
K but lots of autistic people do dislike it, and I think you should at least read the reasons why before you get the thing tattooed.
But whatever, your choice. I’m not going to argue with someone who appears to be assuming and lying about the opinions of autistic people (seriously? you asked every kid you worked with what they thought of the puzzle piece? not to even consider the fact that young people are much more likely to accept authority figure’s feelings on certain subjects)
"I've spent my whole life dealing with autism in my family. My brother loves the idea of a puzzle. I use the word awareness because nearly everyday I have to explain to someone what it is. Besides, autism has many spectrums, which means not everyone agrees with what the autism leaders have to say"
K, I just think you should do some reading. Tattoos are permanent and if your brother later decides he hates the puzzle piece, that’ll be awkward
And not all people agree with the “autism leaders” (whatever the fuck that means) because autistic people are different and have differences in opinions just like not non-autistic people. The reason autistic people are different isn’t because autism is a spectrum, but because we’re individuals.
My little brother has autism and I want to get a tattoo for him. This is a basic drawing cause I suck lol #autism #brother #tattooidea #cantdrawtosavemylife #want
A lot of autistic people don’t like the idea of a puzzle piece representing us and prefer autism acceptance to autism awareness, you should definitely do some research on this before you get a permannt tattoo…
Managing Editor’s Note: James Terminiello has nailed the white washing that is Autism “Acceptance and Awareness” month in hiseditorial in New Jersey.com. What began as Leo Kanner’s diagnosis of a whole body, thoroughly debilitating diagnosis has been broadened to include the quirky guy who doesn’t talk much at parties - and this hurts those people with full blown autism - who are no longer the face of the diagnosis and who have the greatest needs. I’m reminded of the Monty Python Black Knight scene, ” It’s just a flesh wound!” Except it’s not at all funny.
funnily enough, these people refuse to listen to the voices of people who were diagnosed with “low-functioning autism,” and keep speaking over autistic people at all functioning levels.
