Blog:The Secret Aspie- Slavish Words

I was totally taken by surprise to hear from Rashid last night. But as soon as I saw his message saying he was home my world which had been off-kilter, righted itself.

He was delayed and flew back yesterday. Hong Kong it seems does not like certain sites, kik being one of them which is what we use to stay in contact. Plus Google and Facebook are banned there. It boggles my mind that a

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Past pain

As a child and as a woman writing has always expressed who I am…my feelings and thoughts… The written word was always an escape into another world from a life of incest and unhappiness… I lived in a world shadowed with the confusion I felt for what was happening to me and a knowledge of it I could not remember… There are gaps in my life which I look back on and I wonder

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Stolen Me

I write to expunge him from my soul, my mind, my emotions. He is a constant that is never ending within me. He flows through my veins and within my blood. If I were to slit my wrists and let my life flow out all that would be left would be him.

I sleep and dream of my lover in the dark of the night. I feel his caress as I stir in the early

Blog:The Secret Aspie- Loving Deeply

Let me tell you about people who love deeply.

They are wells of feeling. Storms of hope and heart that never know when to stop the downpour. People who love deeply are both soft and strong, they are whirlwinds of rarity that will only ever know how to empty themselves out for the people they love. People who love deeply do not know how to turn their hearts off, do not know how to stop

Do you wonder what thoughts are going through her mind……Maybe she just loves looking at the sea… maybe she is just wondering how cold it is going to feel as she takes that first step into the water… that first shock on her skin of the cold… and as she adjusts a numbness takes over her skin as she steps further and further into the water…..she knows how much easier it would be to

Disclaimer Trigger Warning: Mentions of eugenics, privacy invasion, emotional abuse, and other potentially triggering elements.

So, I’m not on Twitter very often. I follow a fair number of people for various reasons (writing and autism being the two main ones, but not the only ones), but that’s still a lot of reading that has to be done every day, so I tend to only go on occasionally, and mostly read my notifications.

As a result, I

Blog:Aspie Rude Girl- My Sunday Song (Xmas style)

Starting this Sunday until the week of Christmas I will be sharing some of my favorite Christmas songs on Sundays in light of the holidays. 🙂

This is one of my absolute favorite Christmas songs, probably my second fav of all time, but I would have to give it some thought. xD Many memories of my parents playing it during this time of year.

Anonymous asked: Early in the video your cats tail is visible, a cute moment to help with a video about an infuriating book.

Haha, yep! Jiji’s tail makes a cameo.

When I was editing afterward, I felt a little bad that when Jiji walked past I coudn’t help but smile, since it’s such a serious topic. I don’t want anyone to think I was being facetious! 😛

Blog:Pharaohs World!- Let's get Siri-ous

This will be a brief post, I hope, on a topic which has consumed the Autistic community on Twitter in the last few days.

Judith Newman’s, “To Siri with love”, a book written about one of her two sons, Gus, who is autistic has caused quite the furores with its, and I’m being polite here, rather curious attempts at humour and it’s undeniable portrayal of an author who doesn’t understand her son and has little

I have decided that what Rashid did by not getting in touch was an asshole move on his part. It is something I would never have done to anyone. Maybe he is having second thoughts or was a player all along.

My angst over Rashid seems to have been sucked into the void and today I have some relief.

I am not sure how I should feel that he has not contacted me or even that he did not send a text informing me he would not be back Thursday night from Hong Kong. Although you would think considering the way he says he feels about me that he would have respected me by doing so.

Blog:The Unabashed Autist- Judith Newman | Stop The BS and Evolve into an Actual Autistic Ally #boycotttosiri

No words. Just a heavy heart, and an appropriate obscene gesture for “To Siri With Love.”

American Badass Activists

Eve Reiland

I’m an Autistic mom to Autistic kids, and a non-autistic kiddo. My introduction to the world of “Autism” was through the diagnosis of my oldest son when he was 12, back in the 2000s. 

Which, at the time of diagnosis, didn’t make any sense to me. My son was like me, and

Blog:Pharaohs World!- The awful question asked at this time of year..

“So, what do you want for Christmas ?”

You know it’s coming but I always dread it.

Being as I am my list could contain nothing as the sheer number of choices overwhelm me or, alternatively, lots of things because I’ve gone into magpie mode and see lots of shiny things I want.

Then there is the concern that I’m asking for things I don’t really want and don’t use because social convention dictates I

Thank you to furcissy who writes at Femdom Ramblings from a submissive male for nominating me for the Liebster Award. I am fairly new to blogging on WordPress as I used to be on Tumblr but I find this more to my liking.

beckettsthoughts:

You, like myself, may have heard a buzz about autistic people boycotting the recently-published nonfiction novel To Siri With Love. Seeing the controversy surrounding this publication, I decided to take a short break from my university assignments and do a little research for myself about the book and the issues it raises, hoping to be able to explain in short why the #BoycottToSiri movement is so important to the autistic community. The book is a
