*takes gulp of vodka straight from the bottle* my day was fine
So, I visited @mindthelspace (do “@” signs work on here? I genuinely can’t tell) and we and a bunch of people managed to have a 7 hour game of Cards Against Humanity by ignoring the rules and just playing until we ran out of black cards. These are the three hands we found funny enough to justify photographing. I’m sorry that “Daniel Radcliff’s delicious arsehole” is a bit unreadable, alcohol was involved.
I hate my school you can’t even go into a public bathroom without someone trying to be deep and artistic like what am I supposed to look around at leave your pretentiousness at the door and let me shoobie in peace
New Zealand’s finest.
“Not Everything is About You”
I actually find this to be a really comforting thought. I got to be a lot less anxious once I realized that everyone else is too busy being worried what other people think of them to be concerned with what they think of me.
I think I’m going to write a book called “‘Four Hours Is Definitely Enough Sleep’ And Other Lies I Tell Myself”
THIS IS HOW THE BRITISH PRESS RESPONDS TO THE KILLINGS OF DISABLED CHILDREN. All of these extracts were taken from UK news websites. the final tweet is in response to a now-deleted tweet from politician Sandy Kaylan, who praised a mother for ‘euthanising’ her infant children
tania Clarence, 43, admitted to smothering three of her children, all of whom suffered from physical disabilities. Regardless of the circumstances that led to their tragic deaths, these methods of reporting are unethical and go against the British editors code of practice - which states that, once proceedings are active, the press cannot publish any material that could create substantial risk of prejudice in court. The language used in these articles (“tragic mum”, “the unbearable burden of care”, putting the word murder in scare quotes, etc) does exactly that. Reading these articles, it is clear who we are meant to “side” with.
that these rules on court proceedings are apparently not applicable to cases involving the killing of disabled children shows how little the British press (and by extension, the public) cares about the welfare of disabled people in this country. Calling these children burdens and implying they deserved to die reinforces ableism and makes the world a more dangerous place for disabled people. Yet the press does not count it as encouraging prejudice. maybe it’s because we believe the unlawful killing of disabled infants does not “count” as a real crime
This is abhorrent.
Not surprising, given the way our current government treats disabled people. Just the other day, our welfare minister (yes, really) made a comment about how ‘some disabled people aren’t worth the minimum wage’. Despite widespread outrage, he has not been forced to resign.
I am always puzzled about why so much “how to poly” advice totally applies to monogamous relationships.
like… clear and good communication is important for people in all kinds of relationships… this is not how to poly
this is how to amory
So I drive by this house every day on my way to work and it is definitely the Skeleton War HQ

One of the things I hate is that if you aren’t bipolar, OCD, autistic, ect, it’s considered perfectly acceptable to be all “ha ha I look autistic” “feeling a little bipolar today”, but if you actually do have a mental disorder, then god forbid you talk about it, you attention-seeking over-dramatizing romanticizing monster.
Traits of autism. Someone posted an unedited version of this in #actuallyautistic earlier. The black was obviously made by an ‘autism expert’ so I corrected it in red.
Your response to mikshajagwanth’s post frustrated me in some ways. While I think you made some good points, I was bothered by your statement: “The only true experts on disability on disabled people. The only opinions on disability or disabled people that matter are the opinions of disabled people.” I think this discredits the professionals who were able to support you and diagnose you in the first place. It discredits professionals like me who work in the field and support individuals with disabilities to improve their lives.
I don’t know if I’m misinterpreting, but sometimes it seems like you are against any therapy to change/improve the lives of people with Autism, because it changes who they are fundamentally. But I see that as equivalent to being against a neurotypical person getting psychotherapy because they have emotional issues they need to work through. Correct me if I’m wrong.
I also think some of the statements in that response came off as speaking for all individuals with special needs, and I find it hard to believe /everyone/ with a disability thinks the same way you do. I realize I used person-first language in this, which you probably disagree with. But that’s what I was taught and what I think is correct and respectful. So I’m sorry if it offends you.
This message was sent to me via fanmail by but I’d like to respond to it publically. Long post below the cut.
