Women weren’t too hard to animate when Caterina Sforza gave Ezio a massage and then fucked him for 5 minutes of gameplay that didn’t further the plot at all
every time I use “they” to refer to a single gender-unknown person on Tumblr, another piece of my grammar-filled heart shatters, and the pieces scatter at the bottom of hell
“They” has been a singular pronoun for hundreds of years, you melodramatic dipshit.
well… actually… no… they is plural. people use they when they should use he, she, or it.
dense motherfucker, the pronoun “they” is an english equivalent for the third person indefinite singular and has been for literally centuries. it remains morphologically and syntactically plural therefore you don’t need to shit your little pantaloons at compromising your surely rock solid grammar rules.
i guarantee every fuckin time you’ve ever had to refer to a person of an unknown gender you’ve used “they” subconsciously. (“The post clerk gave me a message for you.” “Oh, what did they say?”) but you only have a problem with it when people specify it as a pronoun for themselves because you’re a shitlord i fuckin guess.
grammarized straight into hell
when you say “nonbinary identities don’t exist BECAUSE SCIENCE”
all you’re telling me is that you don’t know what science is
science is a systematic attempt to describe the world. science does not define the world
if you were to go up to a scientist and say “there are things that exist in the word that science does has not yet adequately described, or described at all”
the scientist would be like “yeah i know, that’s why i still have a job”
I had my interview for the art foundation course and I’ve been ‘partially accepted’. He’s accepted me based on my work but he said because of the communication thing he’s not sure whether I’ll be able to do this course, and since my tutor from this year (the one who called me obtuse) is on holiday I’ll have a second interview on enrollment in August with both him and my old tutor, so they can decide whether to accept me and any accommodations I need.
"Look, it is an undeniable fact that at least some self diagnosed people are right."
Yes, but you could say anything and eventually be right. That’s why people think Nostradamus predicted the future.
"I think you are imagining the sense of superiority here."
Not to mention going into the self-dxing tag will have tons of posts along the lines of “I know best what’s going on in MY body.” How’s that for examples?
“ as a first year psychology student I learned more about autism than most medical doctors ever will, and I learnt fuck all”
As a first year anthropology student I learned more about race relations than most activists and sociologists ever will, and I learned fuck all. See how that sounds wrong?
"Autism diagnosis is really fucking expensive."
Also, I LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES and my medical care has never once cost my family so much that we went bankrupt. We had state-funded medical insurance and went to free clinics (and that is for things OTHER than autism, I will cede that) and my autism was diagnosed by psychologists hired by the school district. If you even go to public school, you will have SOME ability to get a legitimate diagnosis without paying four thousand dollars.
To most people, it will make literally zero difference to their ability to do stuff.
What will? ACCOMMODATIONS? If you literally have no difficulties and don’t need accommodations, YOU PROBABLY DON’T HAVE FUCKING AUTISM. I used to have meltdowns more than twice a week in middle school when I wasn’t getting accommodations, and when I actually got proper treatment in High School? WOW, WOULDN’T YOU KNOW I WASN’T SUFFERING AS MUCH AS I HAD BEEN. I wasn’t melting down every week, and my most recent year of college had ONE melt-down. ONE. I know at least 5 other autistic people my own age and GUESS WHAT? Their accommodations made it easier for them to do homework, take tests, learn to read at their grade level, interact with others, keep from having meltdowns, ET CETERA. I would dare say “most” people BENEFIT FROM TREATMENT.
No, self-dxing is not accessorizing. It’s figuring out that there’s a fucking name for something you’ve struggled with your whole life. Self-dxed people have all the problems people with paper diagnoses have.
Yes it is. I have dealt with depression-like symptoms my entire life, getting so bad that I almost took my own life. I have had such bad anxious feelings my entire life I tape my blinds to the window and can’t sleep with the lights off. I have struggled my life with these things, but I don’t say I actually have depression or anxiety. I believe I have these and have been screened for these, but I can’t say with 100% certainty I have those disorders until I am diagnosed.
You may have the same problems, but I see so many self-dxers without actual problems saying they have disorders and your fucking mindset of “it’s okay to diagnose yourself” makes that WORSE. It ENCOURAGES people to act like they have disorders to make friends online. Don’t believe me? Look at ANYONE who says they’re self-diagnosed “bipolar,” like back in 2007 when everybody was “bipolar.”
And I’m aware you’re going to ask for examples, but if you’re not too biased (hey, how ‘bout that CONFIRMATION BIAS I MENTIONED IN MY ORIGINAL POST?) in favor of your own viewpoints, you can FIND IT in people around you. Don’t be so trusting of strangers on the internet.
Functioning labels are disgusting, and using “I’m high-functioning” to distance yourself from certain groups of autistic people (usually people who need care/can’t talk/etc) is shitty as all hell.
Who are you to tell me what I can and cannot identify as? I was labeled as “functioning” so I wouldn’t be pandered to and treated like someone who needed care when I didn’t need those accommodations. It was a FUCKING HELPFUL LABEL, and I AM HIGH FUNCTIONING. I have worked so hard to function regularly in life it’s not even funny.
YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I AM TREATED LIKE A LOWER-FUNCTIONING INDIVIDUAL? I’m forced to sit in Resource class and do a third-grade worksheet on SPELLING with the rest of the class. That actually happened while I was in Resource class, because most of the kids in there were LF.
IT’S NOT ABLEIST IT’S ENSURING I GET THE PROPER FUCKING TREATMENT FOR MY DISORDER AND HOW IT AFFECTS ME.
And you’re as autistic as you ever were.
I’m not saying I’m not autistic. I never said that. I said I have made progress. I went from crawling under desks and throwing tantrums and avoiding eye contact to next-to-neurotypical over the course of four years of actual fucking treatment. I still have autism, btu I have become much better at coping with my symptoms and interacting with my peers. I’M EVEN GETTING BETTER AT READING BODY LANGUAGE BECAUSE I CARE ABOUT TRYING TO BECOME A FUNCTIONING MEMBER OF SOCIETY.
Has the possibility that undiagnosed autistic people exist, and that some of them might have figured it the fuck out never crossed your mind? And that not everyone has access to the resources you had/have?
I know undiagnosed people are out there, but have you ever realized that PUBLIC SCHOOL can fucking tell when you have a problem? THEY KNEW I WAS AUTISTIC BY THE TIME I HIT FIFTH GRADE. TEN. TEN YEARS. DO YOU KNOW HOW EARLY THAT IS IN THE LONG RUN?
If you can’t even go to school you’ve got a hell of a lot more to worry about than self-diagnosing yourself.
I hope someday you realize how stupid self-diagnosis is and how harmful it is to ensuring people get the right amount of help that they need. >m> Until then, I don’t want to see head or tail of you anywhere near my blog.
I only skim read this so I’m just going to answer about what you said about public schools: a lot of teachers don’t know shit. I went to public school and I found it difficult to talk, I kept my eyes on the ground most of the time and my shoulders were permanently up. It’s great that your teachers noticed you have a problem, but for some reason not one fucking person in my school could tell I had anxiety. Teachers are humans and they can be as stupid as anyone else.
I really enjoyed this blog until it became nothing more than another SJW trash heap. Thanks.
