Autistic people can have friends

realsocialskills:

One reason I started writing this blog is that I got tired of seeing social skills programs teach autistic people that they have to become normal in order to have friends.

It’s not true. There are a lot of autistic people who have friends without becoming remotely normal. Oddness and friendship are entirely compatible.

You can be autistic, seem autistic, and have friends who like you and enjoy your company.

Some people won’t like you, and that’s ok. Not everyone has to like everyone.

Some people will dislike you because they are bigoted against autistic people. That’s not ok, but it doesn’t have to ruin your life. Ableists don’t speak for everyone. Those people aren’t your friends. Other people can be.

You’ll probably always face ableism. Trying to be normal probably won’t make that go away; accepting yourself probably won’t make that go away either. You don’t need to change the whole world in order to have friends.

You can have friends as the person you are, in the world as it is now.

Puerto Rico deserves help, not because they are American citizens, but because they are fucking human beings

IN CASE YOU FUCKS HADN’T HEARD, A NEW COPY OF TABLET V OF THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH HAS BEEN FOUND, CONTAINING SOME PRETTY FUCKING GREAT NEW SHIT.

THIS IS A REALLY FUCKING EXCITING THING, BUT OF COURSE NOBODY SEEMS TO GIVE ENOUGH OF A FUCK ABOUT MESOPOTAMIAN SHIT TO ACTUALLY REPORT THIS ANYWHERE SOMEONE MIGHT SEE IT.

IT’S REALLY FUCKING COOL. TRUST US.

yesssssss

and I guess this makes the Gilgamesh fandom the winner in the contest of who had the longest time between updates…

Reblogging for that last comment.

It’s legal to require women to wear makeup at work, and fire them for failing to adhere to this “dress and grooming code” in the usa. like noah fense but uh makeup legitimately is a thing that should be talked about in regards to women NOT having to wear it. 

like i get it some of yall genuinely enjoy wearing makeup, great cool, but women legitimately lose their jobs because they don’t want to wear makeup. 

And like theres so many reasons why a woman wouldn’t, or couldn’t, wear makeup, ranging from disability to mental illness to fucking anything. AND THIS HAS FUCK NOTHING to do with if they can or can’t do the job. that’s fucking absurd. The makeup industry is shitty towards women. It is. 

And like you fucking know it’s sexist when men are reprimanded for wearing makeup, and women lose their jobs for NOT wearing makeup lmao.

Oujia boards are only in upper case, so when we die we'll all type in capslock.

why’s the second half of wall-e like “in a world where we make accomodations for the elderly/disabled… EVERYONE will abuse the accomodations and society will collapse” like whats the message there. bring back the cute heterosexual robots

Nothing indicates that the robots are heterosexual. Bring back the adorable robot lesbians.

Not every day has to “count.” Some days, your purpose is to make it to the next one. That counts too.

Damn I needed this today.

Me too, thank you.

Mom told me once, “Always do your best. And always remember that some days your best is going to be just showing up. And that’s okay.”

Hufflepuffs Delight - a cookie charm spell for Cheer and Delight

red-moon-witch:

lazulimaya:

red-moon-witch:

* inspired by the house Hufflepuff, which looks for the good in everyone*

Needed:
- White, Yellow and Black Candles
- Prebaked cookies or a recipe for cookies. 
- Citrine, Amber, Tourmaline

Steps:
- If your baking your cookies, stir the dough clockwise for positive blessings! 
- if your cookies are already baked, or bought ( I’m not judging) Light your candles; white for peace, yellow for joy and happiness, black for protection and hidden wisdom.
- arrange your candles around the top half of whatever your cookies are sitting on and your crystals around the bottom half. 
- channel energy from each of your candles into your stones, and then into your cookies. 
- Think/say: “ By candlelight, I imbue these sweets with the joy and cheer of many. with crystals, I give these treats the power to bring delight to those who eat them. as I speak it, so shall it be.”

-Aesa <3 (Thanks to @willowofthefae for the idea!)

this makes me think of a convo with a friend the other night about seeking validation that harm occurred from the one(s) who harmed you (in this case i was talking about my relationship with my parents, mostly my mother.)

“seeking validation that harm occurred from the one(s) who harmed you.”

wow. yes
