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.

If You Want to Get Me Something for Christmas

I'm actually Jewish, but I missed Hanuka, and I'm really not that religious. I'll be going to a small Christmas party on Christmas anyways, so it counts. So here's what you can do if you want to do something for me:

  • Donate a copy of "Loud Hands: Autistic People Speaking" to a local library.
  • Donate a copy of "I Love Being My Own Autistic Self" to a local library.
  • Donate a copy of "I Love Being My Own Autistic Self" to a local school.
  • Give a copy of "I Love Being My Own Autistic Self" to the Autistic person in your life.
  • Donate a copy of "Ethan's Story: My Life With Autism" to a local library.
  • Donate a copy of "Ethan's Story: My Life With Autism" to a local school.
  • Give a copy of "Ethan's Story: My Life With Autism" to an Autistic child if there is one in your life.
  • Find me more pro-neurodiversity materials that I can translate into Chinese.

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.
