My ongoing project corner
18 books on eugenics and related subjects…
This is a good use of access to a college library.
[The image is a large stack of books ranging from around 110 years old to very recent under a library desk. Most of the titles pertain to eugenics. On the desk, there is a glowing laptop.]
WAAAAAANT. [Grabby hands at pile of books I honestly don’t need]
- “We’re your family, we’re allowed to make fun of you”
- “Come on, it’s just a joke”
- “toughen up and stop being a baby”
- “We’re just teasing”
BULLYING IS BULLYING NO MATTER WHO IT COMES FROM.
IT JUST HURTS A SHITLOAD A LOT MORE WHEN ITS COMING FROM PEOPLE YOU TRUST
this post will often go weeks without a note
and then there’ll be a holiday
and it resurfaces
and that makes me sad
Facebook friending someone whose work you admire and who you have 2 mutual (though not very close on your end) FB friends with 2 weeks after you sent them an email which they haven’t replied to - is this a good idea, or does it make one a creep?

If I could change three things about how the world sees autism, they would be these. That the world would see that we feel joy—sometimes a joy so intense and private and all-encompassing that it eclipses anything the world might feel. That the world would stop punishing us for our joy, stop grabbing flapping hands and eliminating interests that are not “age-appropriate”, stop shaming and gas-lighting us into believing that we are never, and can never be, happy. And that our joy would be valued in and of itself, seen as a necessary and beautiful part of our disability, pursued, and shared.
