I Dance Because I Cannot Fly

APRIL is AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

50% of profits on all BLUE & CREAM / WHITE items purchased in my Etsy Shop will go to support the efforts of Austistic Self Advocacy Network and the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism 

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

friendly reminder not to support lindt this easter season, or apparently ever again, because they support autism speaks.

Wowwwwwwww

SIGH.

can someone please explain why autism speaks is so bad?

because they’re adamant that autism is a disease that can be “cured”. They don’t have a single autistic person on their board. Autism Speaks produces advertisements, small films, ect. about what a burden autistic people are to a society. They only spend about 4% of their money on “family services.” They create a stereotype that makes it hard for actual autistic people, like myself, be heard and recognized as actually autistic. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder before they realized that I actually showed signs of Asperger’s. They don’t actually help us. 
That’s the problem with Autism Speaks.
