Read the Preamble first, hopefully it will make you less angry!

Neurotypicals May Be A Necessary Evil. Or  If Autistics Ruled the World! – Preamble

First my many disclaimers: I am responding to thoughts I have had regarding how hard it must be to be a neurotypical person and have most of your mind taken up with social, how can I put this politely, inconsequencies.

AndContinue reading “Get Off the Rainbow, Autism Is Not All Positive”
