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

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.
WAKE. THE. FUCK. UP.
- DEPRESSION IS NOT SPECIAL
- ANXIETY IS NOT CUTE
- SELF HARM SCARS ARE NOT BEAUTIFUL
- SUICIDE IS NOT POETIC
- EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT GLAMOROUS
- MENTAL ILLNESSES ARE NOT ROMANTIC SO STOP TREATING THEM THAT WAY
My anxiety is cute to me. I’m going to define my mental illness however the fuck I want. Also in terms of harm done to mentally ill people: systemic oppression of mentally ill people (sometimes called”stigma”)>”romanticizing.” By a lot. They’re right about depression not being special,though. Lots of people have it and you’re not alone,I promise. <3 Suicide also isn’t poetic, but remember, suicide ideation isn’t shameful. Stay safe everyone.
tfw you just figure out what “tfw” means
Did anybody notice how Syria slowly vanished from the news headlines of the newspapers and tv news programmes?
It’s not like it got better over there. The war still goes on and people are still dying. And the world seems no to be caring.
But well, go ahead. Some celebrity stuff is sure more important than that.
What’s wrong with humanity?
You are not a burden.
You are not a bother.
You enhance the lives of others.
People smile, not groan, when you text them.
part of my speech to the school board next week
This one particular quote is my “fuck you” to respectability politics.
—me responding to a pro-“Israeli Self Defense” person on my facebook wall.
"Facts notwithstanding" is actually a pretty good description of how these arguments work.
My dad just said: at your age you’ll probably wanna try a lot of things. Boys, girls, being a girl, being a boy, being punk or goth or spunky. And im okay with that. As long as you don’t come home and tell me youre a republican
parents who care
No dude. My parents actually said this to me.
My friend’s mom told her, “I don’t care who you date. He could be a convict, he could be anything. As long as he’s not a republican.”
This is basically word for word what my parents have told me.
on your about page:
While I am white by birth I do have a strong connection with African American culture and heritage. I was in a past life black. I’m sure of it. I consider myself to be African American.
what the hell even
"Trans-racial*" otherkin need to stop.
*this is a term they stole from trans-national/trans-ethnic/trans-racial adoptees.
Why don’t more people use the term “AC” (“autistic cousin)?! It’ so useful and awesome!
telephonoscope said: I do use it a lot, especially at our ASAN meetings. For some reason I think people don’t like it when I use it?
I think people are more “protective” of their diagnoses now because of perceived “over-diagnoses” or maybe they think it’s a way for NTs to weasel their way into our community even though you have to be neurodivergent to be AC? The first time I ever heard someone use it out of the “why don’t we use this concept anymore” context was at an ASAN meeting. Someone described themself as AC and I had figured he was Autistic.
No, not all feminists are lesbians. But if we were, how would that make the fight any less valid? Is our purpose somehow solidified and scaled by how much we are personally invested in men? And if that is so, don’t you now see why we need feminism?
