o m g being pro self diagnosis is not “us-centric” lmao the us is not the only place it’s difficult to get a diagnosis (the us carries the extra barrier of cost but that is not the only thing that stops people from getting diagnosed), there are tons of pro-self dx people and self-dxed people from all over the world, and as i have said before the nhs literally condones self diagnosis sooooo
There. Fixed it.

unfriendly reminder that Alfonso Cuarón directed a video that portrays autism as a terrifying threat and a burden to non-autistic people, basically a video that says autistic people are diseases, not actual people
Autistic headcanon: Every main character on Brooklyn Nine Nine
i mean when i started b99 i was super happy with it for a million reasons because it’s great but also because it had a ~genius detective~ who wasn’t a walking autistic stereotype
but autistic!jake is EVEN BETTER because then it breaks stereotypes in terms of both autistic characters AND genius detective characters
stereotype breaking autistic characters are very important to me
i’m still taking commissions, right now i’m going to be putting that money toward buying an e-cig so i can smoke vapors without nicotine as a way to stim non-destructively. it’ll cost a little over $100 so i could use all the help i can get tbh
here’s a rundown of what i can do
- i will write anything you want as long as i think i’m capable of producing a well-written whatever it is you want (fanfiction, poetry, even essays, etc)
- i’ll write anywhere up to 5,000 words
- the price is $3 per 500 words, so about $0.17 per 1 word
- paid through paypal
- if you have any questions just send me an ask, i don’t bite i promise
i’ll probably be putting up a donations button too if… anyone is interested… yeah
#smoking sort of and #skinpicking if anyone blacklists that?? #bleeding mention too. and #money
um. i don’t know if it’s okay to post this in the tags so if it annoys anyone i can delete this post
i’m trying to raise the money to by a cheap e-cig for stimming non-destructively (i.e. smoking a nicotine-free flavored vapor vs skin-picking to the point where i’m bleeding) but i don’t have… a whole lot of followers, so getting the word out that i’m taking writing commissions is pretty difficult
so, if it’s okay to ask, i’d really appreciate it if people could spread this post around so more people will know i’m taking commissions
i also have a donations button for anyone who wants to help that way
once again i am totally willing to delete this post if it bothers people, i’m sorry i just need this ;;
aimysidney asked: Hi! I'm a 23 year old trans woman just starting to look into the possibility that I might fall somewhere in the Autism Spectrum. Unfortunately, I don't think I would feel careful yet talking to my therapist about this, so I was wondering (if you are willing) if you could point me to some resources that might be helpful. Thank you much! ~Aimy
my friend star (who is self-diagnosed) made a super good resources post for people who think they might be autistic which is here
i also just found this page which is really amazing, it has tons of resources related to autism in general not just symptoms etc
you can also check my tagged/resources (general resources for autistic/mentally ill/otherwise disabled ppl, some based around diagnosis/self diagnosis) and also more specifically my tagged/self diagnosis has some good posts on the subject.
hope this helps!
