Hyperlexia + autism has set me up for a lifetime of being broadly incomprehensible.
I’m catching up on Elon Musk’s SNL appearance. So, he erroneously claims to be the first autistic on SNL and then uses autism to excuse his ignorance and bigotry? He follows that up with okay signs. What a hate-fueling, edgelord asshole.
You’re not full-stack if you neglect your MESH education.
I just voted in the @DSISD school board elections to help keep Christofascists at bay. They never stop attacking science & pluralism.
Embracing pluralism is good citizenship. Public schools are front lines in the battle for pluralism against the outrage of bigots. Vote.
The candidates for @DSISD board of trustees are some incumbents (who defended a transgender student), several Christofascists, and an Apple engineer who says “diversity, equity, and inclusion are crucially important.” Easy choices.
So, the Oscars changed the format to announce a presumed Boseman win that didn’t happen whilst denying accessibility to Hopkins, dissing two disability icons at once and setting up its own abrupt ending?
Music for other autistics struggling to get through this awful month of society rallying around the common cause of our abuse and extinction:
For autistic people, April is a parade of eugenicist nonsense endorsed by celebrities with huge platforms. We can’t be online at all and avoid it. So stressful to have society rally around the demise of your neurotype.
I’m working on a piece tentatively called “The Complex Sensory Experiences of Our Neurodivergent Family and the Interconnected Modalities of Stimminess and Sensory Hell”. It’s an incomplete rough draft at the moment. I’m sharing the bones as a Simplenote note that I’ll periodically update instead of waiting for what could be weeks to finish and publish it.
I added a YouTube version of the playlist to “Chronic Neurodivergent Depressed Queer Punk: Punk Rock, the Social Model of Disability, and the Dream of the Accepting Community”.
It’s not yet as complete as the Apple Music and Spotify versions. I’m still working my way through.
