Note For Anyone Writing About Me

I got blogger working again using a different proxy. It'd still be nice if people liked my Facebook, but you don't need to look at it to get posts anymore.
For anyone who wants to write about me
I am an Autistic person. I am not a person with autism. Don't call me one.
My name is Alyssa, I'm a triple major in mathematics, mechanical engineering, and Chinese. I'm currently studying abroad in Tianjin. I have an About. I'm Autistic. I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.

Autism/Neurodiversity Stuff

This is a pile of autism or neurodiversity related stuff I recommend that is not on the ``Stuff I Read" for whatever reason, probably because it isn't a blog. Not everything is current, and not everything is perfect. Sometimes it is a specific article I recommend from a blog I read.
Don't Mourn For Us
Autistic Self Advocacy Network
The Unbroken Spectrum: Stockholm Syndrome
Asperger's Are Us comedy troupe plays off their disability
Changing The Autism Conversation
The Obsessive Joy Of Autism-Just Stimming
Quiet Hands- Just Stimming
Letters From Aspergia E-book
A pile of reaction gifs that say either "allistic people" or "autism speaks" for those times when you want a reaction gif.
Neurotypical: The Movie
A Neurodivergent Affirmation
ADHD as a difference in cognition rather than a disorder: TED Talk
The ABC of Stimming

  1. Ah! Thank you for giving me a shout-out and linking to my affirmation!


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.
