Hi, my name's Eric (he/him/his) and I am a Jewish, Autistic, Bisexual, cis male hell bent on destroying the able-bodied-neurotypical-white-cis-hetero-normative-patriarchy. I also do fun things like gardening and reading the newspaper. I run the Tumblr Project AutismSpeaksOrHitler.tumblr.com. My blogs: autisticshs.blogspot.com and blackberriesareforpicking.blogspot.com
[My keyboard is mostly functional but I can't do parenthesis or numbers other than 5 or 6, thus I'll be typing out numbers and using brackets/square brackets. I'm not trying to be formal or anything fancy.]

Note: if you send an ask, I will assume *not* to publish it. If you do, please add that you want it published if so. Sorry I forgot to put this up earlier.
Warning: some pride buttons below contain small, high-contrast, but still flashing words. They are categorized by similarity rather than aesthetics. In addition, they are not necessarily in-sync. If you have photo-sensitivity or could be close to experiencing an SPD-related/Autistic-style meltdown, please know that it could be a sensory trigger. If any other difficulties might occur with these button, this is your content warning, I guess. If you would like/need to me to move it to a different location/rearrange them, I accept that this is a publicly available page and I will do anything to make it more visually or any other way accessible.

My mom asked me a question and I responded with various hand flaps.
She understood it.
Stimming is a form of communication.
Fuck PETA. They’re offering to help ten families in Detroit with their bills if they agree to become vegan.

An a/Autistic person shouldn’t be made to feel that they should be ashamed to have a meltdown.
The people causing them to have one via their actions, negligence, or the environment they have placed an a/Autistic in should feel ashamed.
If an a/Autistic person is to feel anything in this situation, it is anger. It is a burning hot, righteous anger as strong as ten million suns.
They are not compelled to, but they are allowed. Injustice is nothing to be left tolerated.
yknow who needs some support? aromantic people.we grow up in a society where we’re taught that being in love is the best thing in the world and falling in love and getting married and having kids is literally the only thing you should want in life. and for aromantic people, or anyone on the aromantic spectrum, that’s just really, really shitty.
If you say disabled people deserve to get paid less than minimum wage then you are saying disabled people don’t deserve to have a home, or adequate food, water, heat, and medical care, a phone, or assistive devices, or weather appropriate clothing, or to provide all of these things for their children, etc. We can’t even afford all of this to begin with on a minimum wage job (or SSI benefits), and yet they want to pay us even less than that.
My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family”
He said people never knew how to respond
