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.
when Peter Capaldi was consulted on his Doctor wardrobe the first thing he said was it needed to be easy to copy
his top priority was for cosplayers and kids to be able to dress like the doctor without having to hand-make everything
this is why fanboys make the best Doctors
like. a short list of ideas for hollywood:
- all-girl diamond heist operation
- all-girl detective drama
- all-girl mafia
- all-girl motorcycle club
- all-girl political conspiracy thriller
- all-girl drug empire wars
- all-girl superhero league
- all-girl deep sea diving team
- all-girl fuckin crayon factory i literally do not give a shit
Okay so I was remembering all the early fandom nonsense criticizing Ginny for breaking up with boys for what they saw as silly reasons (they were not, and anyone has the right to end a relationship if it’s not working for them) and it occurred to me how Ginny refuses to put up with anyone giving her shit or not respecting her wishes or condescending to her can be directly traced back to her experiences with Tom Riddle.
He was, in many ways, Ginny’s first relationship. He looked down on her- there is no doubt about that since he openly mocked her to Harry. He was the only one in control in the relationship and he used that control to abuse, manipulate and possess her. Ginny was so lonely and felt so hopeless that she completely gave this much older guy she didn’t even know anything about everything he needed to exploit and control her. There were no boundaries in this relationship because Ginny was too young to feel the need for them. She gave and he took. She was treated in a way she did not in the least bit deserve. It was the very definition of an abusive relationship.
So is it really a surprise that after this horrific experience, Ginny developed very clear boundaries? That the instant a guy doesn’t respect her wishes, or treats her in a way she doesn’t deserve, she shuts him down completely or ends that relationship? That is more than just Ginny being strong willed (which is great), it’s also self-preservation developed from her desire not to end up in an abusive relationship again.
Look at Ginny’s three relationships:
What if Peter Pan was just an asshole, and had kids jump out of windows, making Neverland a coma dream?
Peter Pan originally was an angel of death that held kid’s hands when on their way to heaven (Neverland). That’s why they never grew up. All those kids were dead.
