For people already “aware of autism” it’s TONE IT DOWN TAUPE MONTH to symbolize the toned-down sensory and emotional experiences of those lacking autism. It’s a way to raise awareness about how fear rhetoric hurts real people, and that what autistic people want is not to be fixed, not to be prevented, but to be given the support they need to be part of society.
Let’s raise money for organizations that actually give a real voice to people with autism and give life to their dreams.
having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time. it’s the fear of failure but no urge to be productive, and it’s wanting friends while hating socializing. it’s like running a marathon with the willpower of a corpse because you want to get to the end but you also want to sleep and evaporate into the soil and become compost for snails and flowers because then at least you’re useful

#all brooms fly like 3 feet off the ground#the bludgers are stuffed animals#keepers often get distracted by clouds#the seekers are better at playing tag than catching the snitch#games are over when it’s naptime
