I was thirty minutes late to a suite meeting because of a cat… there was a cat outside I had to pet it… a lot… Anyway
Kim wants college updates! So you all get it, what a deal!
so I signed up for Anime Club, Japanese Club, Angels for Pets (where we volunteer with animals in shelters), and Pride Alliance
Anime Club President is pretty chill. She lives in the suite across from me so
I’m going to make it my mission to become friends with hermission success she came into my suite and we talked for thirty minutes about anime, because we are dweebs
there’s also SEVEN ASEXUALS HERE, including myself. And all but one live in my hall. Fuckin’ sweet
(“a college acorn” is my college tag fyi)
Yay! So glad you’re sharing. Brings back frosh memories for me, although I think the clubs you have are much cooler than the ones we had <3
when thinking about your ot3, consider this:
• which two team up to try and stop the other from buying ugly furniture for the house?
• which one is always bringing home silly hats to put on the more serious partner’s head?
• which one is constantly talking with their mouth full, and which partner gets offended by their bad manners?
• who does the taxes
• who tries to help with the taxes and only makes it more difficult
• which partner is morally against paying taxes
idonttakemycontactsout said: i appreciate your concern, but at my college we interact a great deal with autism speaks and support it. you shouldn't focus on what they're doing wrong, because none of it is terrible, but focus on what they are trying to do for people with all different levels of autism.
Things you apparently don’t consider terrible:
Posting a video of a mother talking about how she wanted to kill her child while that same child was in the room listening.
Supporting the eugenic abortion of autistic people.
Failing to condemn the murders of autistic children.
Supporting the Judge Rotenburg Center, which according the the UN, tortures autistic people.
It is terrible, only 3% of their budget goes towards services, there are no autistic people on their board, they literally support eugenics. They are doing absolutely nothing good.
This is widely know withing the autistic community and they are pretty universally hated by autistic people. Because they are terrible. They only even bother pretending to care about little white boys.
Read that link. Read it.
And here is the resignation letter of the sole autistic person they had in an important (but still non board) position
Here’s a flyer by a major autism advocacy organisation on them
OR, if you still don’t give a fuck about what autistic people think or want, (which seems kind of obvious from the content of this ask) here are some links written by non autistic people.
Here’s a post from the CEO of one of the oldest charities in the US for intellectually and developmentally disabled people.
Here’s a post from a major autism parenting magazine
And here are some other posts
If you continue to support them now you are in possession of this information, then it is clear that you are not an ally to autistic people, you don’t want to help us, and are probably just doing your charity work for “oh look at me, I’m a good person” points.
If you support autism speaks, you are not supporting autistic people, you are hurting us. And you are doing it knowingly and consciously.
Please spread this, not enough people know.

35. Recommend 1-5 shipper blogs.
Honestly, I have nothing very exciting to offer. Since I multi-ship, I tend to just follow people who also multi-ship. But I track all the ‘ship tags.
In the beginning, though, I clicked on every fic rec link and admired every fanart in these two ‘shipper blogs before they were abandoned: fuckyeahjohnlestrade and fuckyeahsherlocklestrade. The fics are oldies but goodies and they lead you to other rec lists from authors’ AOS accounts (as bookmarks) that are more recent. Also, there’s reasonstoshipsherstrade, which I have the very good fortune to admin, but all the credit goes to mybelovedcheshire - wherever she may be, hopefully happy and healthy) - for creating it so I don’t feel as though I’m self-promoting. I still follow fyeahjoanlock because I seriously still love Elementary from way back and I enjoy seeing all the lovely fanworks that celebrate that cast.
