Blog:Life Asper Margo- Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Diss Clothes or Diss Creed?

When it comes to what we share about ourselves to others, ultimately, the decision rests solely on each individual regarding what information is private and what is public. The autistic mind can struggle to gauge what is socially constructed as an overshare or and not; this results in either living a secretive life (almost “too secretive”), or being very open (almost “too open”) with those around them. It’s like being either under-dressed or overdressed for

I used to doodle with my pen in my notebooks during class. It was usually a dog or a flamingo – even if it wasn’t nothing to write (or draw) home about. While perfecting every fur strand or feather, I wondered about the cruelty of nature and how that relates to humans. Animals aren’t expected to treat each other kindly, like people. A crocodile can kill their prey and feel

Blog:Life Asper Margo- 'Til Dreams Do Us Part

I believe the mind is a powerful thing; it’s what makes us understand our place in the universe, and travel across it, physically and spiritually. By now, you’re either intrigued or you’re slowly shaking your head sideways from behind your screen thinking I’m drinking some namaste koolaid. Either way, I’m going to follow through with my decision to maintain my writing’s integrity by letting it be a true reflection of my beliefs and myself. I

I’ve been deep in thought recently about what it means to be a friend. There are different types of relationships that are considered forms of friendship, romantic partnership being the most unique of them since they usually involve monogamous intimacy. A decade ago, someone told me that romantic love is a modern concept of our time that hasn’t always existed, therefore is a utopian figment of our imagination. Unsurprisingly (and sadly), this person is still

Blog:Life Asper Margo- My One And Only

Anyone who knows me well knows that banal things make me laugh the most. Someone being silly can have me laughing nonstop making others wonder how something so ridiculous can be so entertaining. What excites most people bores me: sports, clubs/bars, beaches, the high life, and car toys. I need something deeper in my life: meaning. Everyone needs meaning but not everyone actively pursues it. I’ve been feeling very unfulfilled and unaccomplished for the longest

Blog:Life Asper Margo- All Bite, No Bark

Some sensory seeking autistic children like to chew non-edible items. The extent to which biting occurs differs in each person. Some parents have to cover the legs of their wooden furniture to keep their children safe. As for myself, my habits were a lot more subtle. I was like a gerbil; I chewed entire pencils, water bottle caps, and plastic cutlery.

Friend: Were you at Carlingwood Mall today?Me: Yeah, how did you know?Friend: I found one

Blog:Life Asper Margo- The F Word

Vulgarity is an abuse of language that serves multiple purposes: to emphasize meaning, attempt to impress (or oppress), and offend. People have often been shocked when they’ve witnessed me using colourful language; they don’t expect it from me. I was surprised myself when I found that many autistic advocates swear in their blogs (verbal and nonverbal alike). Maybe a part of it is because I internalized the infantilization of autistic people. Being gullible,

Blog:Life Asper Margo- Margo’s Hierarchy Of Needs

Human behaviour doesn’t fit in a textbook: it’s irrational and unpredictable. Socializing is a difficult skill to learn because the second you learn the rules, they change. For autistics, recognizing unidentified social hierarchies can be like trying to decipher hieroglyphs. This can be a good or bad thing. Not seeing

Blog:Life Asper Margo- I Think, Therefore We Are

The term Autism derives from the Greek word ‘autos’ meaning ‘self’. I don’t think that’s an accurate description for the condition. We’re not selfish, self-absorbed, or self-serving. We’re disconnected. Imagine being able to talk but not connect or not being able to talk or connect. My mind is like a
