The only thing worse than falling in love with strangers in coffee shops is falling in love with straight strangers in coffee shops.
And you wonder why some straight people hate gays?
OH NO, A QUEER MIGHT FIND ME ATTRACTIVE. GAYS ARE THE WORST. HOW DARE THEY?
The problem with mass migration to new social media platforms is having to start over. I realized that the vast majority of you don’t know me from LJ, which means you don’t know how vehemently opposed to anti-autism rhetoric I am. *deep breath*
What I mean by that: Autism Speaks is a shitty organization that seeks to “cure” autism, as if it was a disease and not a different neurotypical pattern of thought/brain development. Hey, it’s not ABnormal, it’s different.
What I mean by that: people who “claim” vaccines “cause autism.” Fact: they don’t. Fact: you letting your kids potentially DIE from something preventable rather than suffer autism tells me everything I need to know about you.
Fact: my sister is a non-verbal autistic (the current language my s-mom and sister’s doctors use, so I use that, as well). She’s in her 20s. My family was one of the original members of the class action lawsuit against the manufacturers of the MMR vaccine back in the day. UNTIL THE SCIENCE CAME OUT (that’s what “fact” refers to) and we backed away like it was on fire. Because, you know. SCIENCE. We don’t seek to “cure” my sister of her autism. She’s autistic. I’m a loud, close-talker. We both have our things. :)
My son is on the spectrum. In fact, back in the LJ days, my followers (and loads of extra-amazing people) came together for a coin project to help my son deal with bullying when he was 14. Still one of the greatest moments of my life, seeing all of those packages come in and him lighting up. ANTARCTICA. We got a coin from Antarctica, guys. *sobs*
I am not willing to educate you on vaccines or autism, should you want to argue anything I’ve put up here. I don’t have the time to explain all the many, many ways in which you are wrong. The world is not flat, vaccines do not cause autism, vaccines help people not die. YAY VACCINES.
And even if they DID, you’re telling me you’d rather gamble your child’s very life on the slim chance that it DID? You’d rather have a dead child than an autistic one? GTFO of my face with that hate.
High five to all of you awesome-minded people who know better. <3
I’m most excited about Jason Momoa being Aquaman
