I am just going to say this: if not, then as someone on the spectrum myself, you guys have legitimately offended me.
IF YOUR IDEA OF SATIRE IS MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE IN THE EXACT SAME WAY THAT THEY ARE ALREADY MADE FUN OF EVERY FUCKING DAY THEN YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT SATIRE MEANS
terf: science is just a branch of patriarchal power, used to regulate and damage the lives of women, esp in reducing us down to our genitals and acting as though biology is destiny
terf: TRANS WOMEN AREN'T WOMEN THEY HAVE NO VAGANNEERS OR UTREROS DON'T U FUCKING KNOW SCIENCE FUCK CHROMSOOMES ARE IMPORTANT BILOGY
Cis people get kind of mad when you point out that their gender assignment comes from a quick glance at their junk and a pen mark on a sheet of paper by a random dude with some degrees and not the Gods Themselves From On High In The Great Citadel Of Genitalia
onceuponymous: I've got two fanfic recs! "Just Saying Get Better", at ribswrites on tumblr, is an incomplete but good fanfic following the trolls as patients and the beta kids as orderlies at a mental hospital. It's not skeevy that I've seen - there's research behind the diagnoses and everyone is treated like a person, not a label. Reading it was actually really helpful for me, but you probably want to check it out on your own (cont.)

konekoyoukai: Do you have someone on the spectrum running the blog with you?
and i dont have a diagnosis, but i got an array of “signs”, like sensory issues, social issues, INCREDIBLE problems vocalizing/communicating, and the list goes on. in case that was what u were getting at.
all of the (good) pieces on autism were done by mCAT, the person who wanted this blog created specifically because of the awful ableism in the fandom. theyre labeled with their name.
please tell me were not regressing to the days where i cussed ppls asses out for not READING THE SHIT I BUSTED MY ASS ON. this was answered on two of the pages i made. it takes scrolling and clicking.
Anyone out there got any recommendations for fanworks that improve upon homestuck’s various problems? Any that are inclusive? Any that could apply to this ask?
corey-45: While we're on the subject of "comics that do the job better than Homestuck does now", surely there are some fan works (fanfics, fan comics/MSPFanventures, whatever) that seek to improve on Hussie's original work and maybe even correct some of the mistakes he's made?
Well, two things come to mind:
There was a post we reblogged with subsets of the community/blogs/projects that we recommended. ill dig it out for you.
Ill also open a question for this.
Remember when i had to go to the ER a few months back
That was due to a disastrous medicine mishap. Ive since been out of school, as some of you know (or have caught on) on a mandatory health leave. I cant actually go back to school until i do some things, the main thing being that i have to attend another school elsewhere for a semester. My scholarship wont help me pay for this (apparently necessary) expenditure and me and my family are dirt poor.
Considering how school is p important for me (and how Ive been trying for the past year to get employed or get accommodations for my disabilities), Ive decided to make a post about it (more details follow). If you can help, even by spreading it around, Id appreciate it!!
Back to your regularly scheduled…this.
- know they’re problematic
- know why they’re problematic
- don’t dismiss people’s feelings/dissatisfaction with them
- don’t silence people when they’re talking about the problems in your media, because your enjoyment is not more important than that discussion.
Congratulations, you’ve reached the minimum level of decency for being a person who enjoys things that might be problematic.
I will not be handing you a cookie.
