how to tell someone they might have autism (please read this)

autisticdrift:

This is risky and probably inadvisable in most cases.

Most people aren’t qualified to make this judgment about a friend or family member and even if they are, there’s no telling how the recipient will take it. If it’s true and they’re not ready to hear it, they may be dismissive or even angry. If it’s not true and they have something else going on that is similar to autism, they’ll either feel compelled to disclose that or be forced to somehow conceal it. 

Honestly, just don’t do this. It’s more likely to damage your relationship than help it. Instead, casually share information about your own autistic experience and hope that they eventually they start questioning things for themselves.

Until someone straight up asks you “do you think I’m autistic” or some variation thereof, making judgments about their neurotype is none of your business.

I hate how Ina Garten says “Good Olive Oil” in her recipes. Bitch I can’t afford a $50 bottle of Cretan olive oil cold pressed by a virgin’s bare feet.

Forget me not

In Slovene, these are called ‘spominčice’, which would loosely translate into ‘little memories’. The different perception of the world through different languages is fascinating to me. 

And yet both refer to memory. Weird how they converge on that. What about tiny blue flowers says “something to do with remembering”?

According to a medieval German legend, after God had named all of the plants, he had forgot this small, blue flower to which it cried “Forget me not, oh Lord!” and God replied “So that shall be your name”. When English king Henry IV was exiled to Germany, he adopted the flower as his personal symbol (for obvious reasons) and retained it upon his return to England, thus bringing the flower’s colloquial name to the English language.

New York folks?

I’m looking into a few schools in New York, in Buffalo and Albany specifically. I know its way in the future and I haven’t even been accepted yet, but if you’re in either of those places got any advice? (And no, “don’t come here it sucks” isn’t advice :P)

The cognitive dissonance caused by a society that tells its children to “follow their dreams” through messages in films, literature, etc. and then punishes them for not choosing safe, money making careers in adulthood is fascinating, to say the least.

top 5 signs that you are neurotypical

autisticdrift:

1. You love talking about inconsequential subject matter and can’t resist an opportunity to start a conversation, even with strangers

2. You expect everyone to know what you are thinking and feeling, regardless of how complicated the situation is or how little information you’ve revealed

3. You need to be surrounded by people most of the time and get easily bored when left alone

4. You find it difficult to say what you mean and often resort to telling white lies or concealing the truth to preserve social standing

5. You find yourself constantly touching people “socially” and invading their personal space in other ways, even if they’ve expressed a preference not to be touched
