Note For Anyone Writing About Me

Guide to Writing About Me

I am an Autistic person,not a person with autism. I am also not Aspergers. The diagnosis isn't even in the DSM anymore, and yes, I agree with the consolidation of all autistic spectrum stuff under one umbrella. I have other issues with the DSM.

I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.

Oh hey, 100 posts

Google tells me this is my 100th post. (Round numbers are cool!) This blog started because I felt like I was going to explode from some of the opinions people were expressing about people I have a decent bit in common with, and about people who have other disabilities. Since then, I've seen things that made be want to rage and throw things (like every time I see someone support Autism Speaks), things that make me happy (like whenever someone understands why XYZ is/isn't helpful, and then either does/stops doing it, respectively), and things that made me laugh. (Like THIS. Go read it. It's funny.)
I've had awesome stuff happen, like getting paid to perseverate and filing to graduate from math, and I've had cruddy stuff happen, most of which I don't talk about here unless it's related to autism. So for everyone who's stuck around, thanks for reading, and I'll be sticking around too. If I didn't, the crud in my head would build up and then I'd explode or something.

I reserve the right to delete for personal attacks, derailing, dangerous comparisons, bigotry, and generally not wanting my blog to be a platform for certain things. As long as we stay within those ranges, discussion is AWESOME.
