I hate how triggered I get from people who are stressed and angry around me
shouty people can do that sometimes. being around sad or stressed-out people isn’t always entirely TRIGGERING but it can be difficult to deal with as we just soak up the emotions and don’t know how to process it. (the idea that autistic people haven’t got empathy is a bit nonsense really.) ~D.
I get like this as well around angry/shouty people.
Classics Major Submitted by wackyshenanigans
…that is the most sexist rubbish I’ve ever heard. We’ve been in a few classics/ancient-history classes and many of the people there are *gasp* WOMEN
Somebody, please, send this student a copy of Margalit Fox’s The Riddle of the Labyrinth. It’s the biography of Alice Kober, who played a significant part in deciphering Linear B and discovering it was actually Greek. Oh, and this all took place in the 1930s and 1940s.
Irony: I want to write something for the “this is autism” flashblog, but it’s one of those kinds of nights when my autism means that my brain’s having trouble translating ideas into words.
i’m gonna name my firstborn “arial”
and people will be like “oh like the mermaid”
and i’ll say “no like the font”
have twins and name them arial and helvetica, no one will be able to tell them apart
And everyone will say Helvetica is so much prettier, but half the time those same people will mix her up with Arial.
Yep, it’s that time of the year again when there are way too many jewelry ads on TV.
like seriously, for neurotypicals, being replaced with something that looks exactly like you but is inherently different on a mental level is the plot of a horror movie. for me, it’s something that is advocated for and that i should not only accept, but actively desire
That moment when you mis-parse the headline “Bulger mum at trial” as British English instead of US English.
