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 am an optimist by day and defeatist by night. 
I run the Tumblr Project AutismSpeaksOrHitler.tumblr.com. My blogs: autisticshs.blogspot.com and blackberriesareforpicking.blogspot.com .

If it seems like there’s a random weird in my text posts, it’s because I’ve re-revised it too many times to catch that kind of stuff. It’s totally cool with me if when you reblog shit you correct my spelling and/or grammar inside the post. 

I actually kind of love how there’s an example of this IN THE TEXT POST. I meant “word,” not weird.

So do you all know that I have a behavior disorder? Because I do. I have gotten into so many goddamn fights (none of which I’ve started mind you) between me and teachers or other students. If you’ve ever met me in real life you’ll probably find this super confusing because I am rarely overtly aggressive (I’ve relearned it a bit because of tumblr but not really). If you don’t deliberately set off my triggers repeatedly and harass me, I will not be any sort of threat at all. Unfortunately when I was younger I was not afforded this “luxury—” thus a behavior disorder. The Autistic community has this respectability politics shit going on where we say we’re not violent and shit and dissecting why we don’t actually have poor impulse control but some autistic people for one reason or another do and marginalizing them is just fucking bullshit. So you know, I exist y’all.

its horrifying that liberals answers to “we should cure gayness” or “we should cure transess” isnt “thats disgusting and immoral” but instead “it doesnt work”

Have you ever wondered how liberals can be against “curing” Gay people but are strongly supportive of “curing” various d/Disabled people? Well this is how. 

Breitbart London Asks: "Have They Cut Chelsea Manning's Penis Off Yet?"

justinspoliticalcorner:

A Breitbart.com columnist launched a transphobic attack on transgender former Army Private Chelsea Manning, calling her a “traitorous transsexual” and asking if the government had “cut it off yet.”

In a September 16 column for Breitbart London, columnist Milo Yiannopoulos attacked Manning - who was convicted in 2013 of leaking classified documents to Wikileaks - for publishing an op-ed in The Guardian about the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL). Yiannopoulos repeatedly misgendered Manning, asking if the government had “cut it off yet” - referring to Manning’s genitalia:

Have they cut it off yet? The penis attached to traitorous transsexual Chelsea Manning, I mean. How else to explain the level of feverish disturbance necessary for the former Private Bradley to pen an op-ed saying we should “let ISIS succeed” in its mission to destroy half the Middle East, murdering, raping and torturing anyone in its way.

[…]

Manning, is of course, suffering from a lamentable psychiatric disorder. Normally, we help people like that by giving them access to doctors and drugs.

[…]

I don’t believe everything the government tells me, and I know it snoops on me more than it should, but do I trust the NSA more than I trust a loopy alleged rapist, Putin’s bitch or a psychologically fragile, gender-bending convicted traitor? You bet I do. [emphasis added]

Yiannopoulos also linked to a personal blog post in which he called “transgenderism” a “disease” and suggested that some transgender women are just “marginalised, lonely” gay men crying for help.

It goes without saying that Yiannopoulos’ transphobic screed contradicts expert consensus, which has acknowledged transgender identities as “part of the human condition.” He relies on the discredited work of former Johns Hopkins Hospital psychiatrist Paul McHugh, ignoring current professional medical recommendations about the transgender community.

Pseudoscience aside, though, Yiannopoulos’ column is a stark example of the kind of gratuitous hate speech Breitbart.com is willing to publish. Manning’s Guardian op-ed had nothing to do with being transgender, but Breitbart couldn’t pass up another opportunity to depict transgender people as unstable or deviant.

you don’t get to ignore the kids with violent impulses when you’re talking about mental illness

we are not the extremes. we do not deserve to be shunted off to the side, hidden behind your bullshit respectability politics. we exist, and we are not unworthy of your support and attention.

One of the things I hate is that if you aren’t bipolar, OCD, autistic, ect, it’s considered perfectly acceptable to be all “ha ha I look autistic” “feeling a little bipolar today”, but if you actually do have a mental disorder, then god forbid you talk about it, you attention-seeking over-dramatizing romanticizing monster.

They prefer a false peace to a just peace; they prefer orderly hand-holding and singing from communities that have been brutalized beyond belief; they prefer a quiet list of demands read out at a press conference, as if that has not already been tried before to little effect; they prefer to focus on the empty (or absent) proclamations of their favorite celebrity punching bags rather than focusing on the lives and humanity of real people who are fighting white supremacy and repression on the ground right now.

don’t use functioning labels on anyone, at all, ever, really, but this is addressed to allistics.
~follow for more passive aggressive autism~

Seriously.  Don’t.  Not unless you want me to find some really creative way to make your life hell.  Or at least unless you want me to sit around imagining creative ways to make your life hell.  Because functioning labels make my life hell.  All of them.  Especially when applied to me.  This includes when people like me or Amy S. get tokenized by other autistic people in a form similar to “See, that person is low-functioning and he agrees with us!”   Like it’s one thing to point out that lots of nonspeaking people hold the same views on cure, etc. as lots of speaking people.  But it’s another thing when you only bring up that person as an example of a “low functioning” person who agrees with you, and you never talk about our ideas for their own sake — just only when it suits you to have people know that some “low functioning” people don’t want to be cured.
But… yeah.  Don’t call me low functioning. Don’t call me mid functioning.  Don’t call high functioning.  And don’t ignore all my ideas (including “functioning labels”, a phrase I coined, for that matter) most of the time, but then use me as an example when you need to tell people that some ‘low functioning’ people agree with you.  (And don’t do that to anyone, it’s tokenizing and obnoxious.)
