    kill the idea that openly caring characters are boring

    set on fire the line of thought that dictates that altruism is a bad thing and that selfishness/sassiness is an inherently more appealing and ‘~intricate~’ quality than an affectionate nature

    smash and bury the concept of the false equivalency between angst and complexity

    kindness and empathy are not synonyms for “blandness” and “lack of personality”

    ALL cis people—every single one—are transphobic, passively if not actively so.

    You have been born into a society that caters to you. You have been raised to believe in the gender binary & assigned genders. You have internalized some degree of transphobia as a result.

    I know it’s…

    If you say you are not attracted to trans people you are transphobic. You should not need me to fucking tell you this.

    If you say bisexuals are attracted only to cis men and cis women you are not only transphobic, but also biphobic.

    allismyells:

    AUTISM IS NOT A MENTAL ILLNESS.

    "Autism is not a mental illness" is not a "autism is not a bad thing" opinion statement. It is a statement of fact.

    Autism is a developmental disorder. 

    This is a fact. They are different things. Autism is not a mental illness because it is a developmental disorder. 

    It’s not a mental illness for the same reasons things like dyslexia, intellectual disability, william’s syndrome and ADHD aren’t mental illnesses. They are developmental disorders. Not mental illnesses.

    It’s not a mental illness because that’s not what mental illness fucking means. 

    It may fit some reductive dictionary definitions of mental illness (the type that amount to “mental illness = thing wrong with your brain) but it doesn’t fit common usage and actual medical conceptions of mental illness at all. Mental illnesses are things you can be treat, as a rule. They also don’t confer cognitive advantages. They don’t tend to change the entire way your sensory processing works.

    Look here  and here. The first is a description of what mental health problems are - autism doesn’t fit. And the second is a description of autism - as a developmental disorder.

    Calling autism a mental illness is like going around calling down syndrome a mental illness because people with down syndrome have different brain development. You’re just wrong.

    You can’t just redefine words.

    Do any other autistic people out there get hallucinations when stressed/overwhelmed? Like hallucinations about noises, feelings of being watched, etc. Just curious.

    yep, this happens to me! i was diagnosed with psychosis and my hallucinations get worse when i’m too stressed/overwhelmed or too overstimulated.
