Connecting with Other Autistics — Day 14 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

I like to put a header image, but I don’t know that I have one that really fits here either…  That’s OK for now… I have this listed in my notes as “CAU” or Canadian Autistics United.  But that is just a “formal” aspect of of connecting with other autistics.  There are a lot of […]

Response to Littlelolikat video on consent in public.

This post will go into topics that will not be safe for some people.  I talk about sexuality.  I talk about a lot of different topics of this.  I talk about trauma, and responses to this.  I also talk about the criminal justice system.  I don’t know that I have even all the major triggers […]

Littles and Caregivers — Post Followup

This has not happened before (that I can remember).  Today I am writing about a very recent post due to the response I have received from it.  First off, I’m going to post a short video which triggered my desire for writing this response post. Well, first I’m going to point you back to the […]

Littles and Caregivers

Hello, this is a bit unusual, and it may be not safe for work, or triggering.  I will talk about experience of littles and how to “caregive” our littles.  So I am inserting a “more” tag here.  I may share stuff straight from the littles…  There is some “adult” content.  Continuing means you consider yourself […]

Partial Review of Tony Attwood’s *The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome*

I picked up a used copy of this book (actually I believe an earlier edition of it possibly), and had started to read it, but with the combination of the writing, and the fact that after having spent well over a month almost entirely outside, in snow and cold, it still smelt far too much […]

The Myth of Lack of Empathy in Autism

I am not entirely sure how I will end up structuring this.  I am leaning more toward a flow of consciousness type post with this one, which I feel as I haven’t entirely thought about how to write this is most natural for me. Recently I heard about how yawns are contagious, and that they […]

Understanding social skills training

I really am not sure where I am intending to go here.  A lot of this is more or less a bit about what my experience with social skills training has been. First off, I want to say that I do not recall any official social skills training that I received.  So, I honestly believe in a […]

Identity first language vs. person first language

I have been wanting to write on this topic for a while.  I think this particular post will be largely flow of consciousness, as I am not quite sure where I want to go with it. I identify as having been diagnosed with a number of “disorders” a lot of them “mental disorders” according to […]
