I think mummy Holmes should show John the (very real) photo of her pulling down his swim trunks and kissing his bottom, mentioned here in series 4. XD

If you have any questions, please check the FAQ.

OP, I’m glad you posted this, I really am. Because I can now identify fellow fandom folks who are literally unsafe to be around. Because you are funding an organization that ignores the people it claims to speak for. That actively harms autistic people.
And the phrase is “autistic people”, not “those affected by Autism”. Autism is a part of who we are, not some insidious force that overtakes us or hurts our family.
Fuck you, basically. Fuck you for ignoring autistic people who criticize you.
More info :
http://goldenheartedrose.tumblr.com/A$

I didn’t write the copy. Merely copied it from the site.
Besides that, you’re welcome.

Oh dear!  I understand folks feeling angry about things but lashing out at people who believe they are doing a good thing is nasty.
If you are against Autism Speaks (which is fine, you have the right to not like things) It is polite to explain your reasoning (it is fine if they don’t agree with you) but please don’t cuss out someone for doing something they feel is a good thing.
I’m sure we have all done things that at the time we thought they were good ideas, then after we gain knowledge we might have felt differently.
When you cuss someone they are less likely to listen to your message.
Peace 

Autistic people like myself, like my friends and family, have been dehumanized, hurt, abused, and even murdered for being autistic.  And yet you think we should tiptoe around this even when the OP has already been called out by multiple people and has basically just shrugged it off as not really that important?
Well ok.  
I don’t care about what you think is a good thing.  I care about what is actually a good thing.  And when multiple people have told you “Autism Speaks is bad news if you actually care about autistic people” and people like OP basically shrug it off like it’s nothing or say things like “you’re welcome” to snarky but legit criticism? That’s proof that they aren’t fucking listening.
If you’re more offended by my cursing than you are by OP’s actual lack of caring at all about what autistic people have to say about what’s lauded as an autism charity but is anything but? You are part of the problem.  And you’re ignoring the very real problems in order to tone police.
Yeah, good on you, huh?
TL;DR - Fuck your tone policing bullshit. Focus on the actual problems and maybe the OP should, I don’t know, apologize for their ignorance and remove the post?

Never notice how autistic people like us have no filter when speaking their minds? Well, autism speaks sure know nothing about it either. They’re too busy trying to change us instead of helping us out to be accepted in society. We can’t change. We can improove of course, but we’ll always be autistic. There is no shame in that. Autism speaks should be ashamed though.
Basically, what happened just here was exactly that:
OP: We should do a good thing
Autistic person: FUCK AUTISM SPEAKS IT’S BAD FOR US’ PEARN MORE BABOUT THEM BEFORE HELPING THEM OUT!!
OP : What the fuck autistic person, why are you sooo rude, I’m doing something good don’t you understand? Why aren’t you good like neurotypical people in socializing?
Autistic person: I sometime get really passionate about things, since it’s how I am and I cannot explain differently my point of view, I’m trying to really raise awareness by speaking for autistic people, because I am one of them. Look at the reasons why I’m mad about autism speaks!!
Me: *translating because I know what she is talking about, because I am passionate about things too, and I understand what she wanted to say here, autism speaks never try to translate because they want autism gone*
We are not rude, we have no filter, we are not rude or impolite, we communicate differentely, that’s allorry.

Please do not use your autism for an excuse to speak rudely.
The OP has probably never supported autism speaks.  She doesn’t have any family with autism that I know of. She is my best writing friend and she knows that my son and I have autism.
She probably posted it for me to see (not sure)
I was sick with the flu and never saw it until today with the hateful anti-autism speaks thing posted onto it.
It is OK for any of you to dislike and not support Autism Speaks.  The OP is not the person responsible for this compilation ( I do not know the person who organized it)

Fine. If you want to play the age old game of tone police, I’ll play. I’ve done it before, and I’ll do it again, just for you. 
Regardless of whether the OP supports A$ in her own right, Fandom4Autism is raising money for Autism Speaks.That’s the charity, the one that is oh so conspicuously not named until you click through to the FAQ.
By making this post, by supporting this venture, she and every single author, artist, editor or donator are supporting Autism Speaks.That’s the where the path of cashflow and creative energy expended goes.
And in so doing, proof is given that fandom is not welcoming to autistic people.
Now, having saved you the trouble of clicking through and giving you this knowledge- which was already provided in the original post for those who bothered to click the link- and thus was made very clear to goldenheartedrose, consider that response anew.
Not as some ridiculous “here let me translate it from impassioned rambling for you” but as a direct response to a post about a charity drive for Autism Speaks, which is what the original post is. 
After a callout that was, considering the actions A$ takes and supports, eminently reasonable, and not even violent from both informal discourse and fandom perspectives, both of which tend to be far more vitriolic anyway, goldenheartedrose even provides the information happyghostfanfiction says should be provided after it has been given.
Is there some sort of virus going around that makes people incapable of clicking through links before they start jumping in on conversations? 
Or have we all collectively decided to play another round of passion=irrationality and autism=idiocy?
Because I know exactly what it looks like form over here.
If you have anymore questions that haven’t already been answered in linksI will happily take them. Otherwise, I suggest you seriously reconsider what you’re doing with your time and creative energy, and for whom. Because this little gambit does nothing in the long run but encourage the widespread, systemic mistreatment of autistic people, and in the short run achieves little more than ensuring that autistic people feel unsafe in fandom, one of the few places that has historically been neutral and by extension safe.
And if you don’t think that sort of backstabbing casual assault on someone’s life, on an entire category of people’s well being warrants a solid “fuck you” at the end of a post explaining the precise shape and depth of the wound inflicted, well then I’m inclined to assume you’re just not listening.

People talk about how hard long distance relationships are but nobody talks about the struggle of long distance friendships. I would give my left leg right now to just be able to sit in our pjs and watch movies or to just be able to give a big fucking hug.

I love Cat Shaming attempts because it’s always clear from their expressions they a) give zero fucks what you think and b) totally intend to reoffend.

Plus three times the square root of four

Is nine squared and not a bit more.

Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

Actually, I’ve studied design and advertising, and I can tell you that the reason people would look at this and immediately assume Alex is the boy is because, quite simply, the boy is the focal point of the ad.
English-speaking readers’ line of sight goes from left to right and up to down. This ad leads the viewer from the words MEET ALEX etc straight to the boy and then over and down to the girl. I didn’t even notice there was a set of parenthesis with words in them in the ad until I looked the fourth time. 
This is a fallacious confirmation bias, as anyone looking at it will assume Alex is the focal point (i.e. The Boy) and then if they’re perceptive they’ll notice the words at the bottom. Aha! Those damn gender stereotypes gotcha again! Except no, because the ad literally forces you to read it as “Alex is the boy” by the visual language and lines of sight. 
A better ad would have been structured from top to bottom instead of left to right, and wouldn’t have pushed the girl, the real subject of the ad (who, by the way, has been VISUALLY PUSHED OUT OF HER RIGHTFUL SPACE ON THE AD BY HER BROTHER) off to the corner as far away from her identifiers as possible. 
Here, I’ll make you a better ad.

Bam. Shitty stock photo but you get the point. If anyone sees this and assumes Alex is the boy, they don’t have the the ad layout to use as an excuse for their internalized gender shittery. Likewise, the ad isn’t actively trying to make you read it a certain way and THEN making you feel guilty for interpreting it the way they designed it to be. 

…And then there’s me, who didn’t even bother to think the child who wasn’t the focal point was who they were actually talking about.
My thoughts were like: Oh, that’s Alex? So he’s trans*? And his sibling is too? Awesome! But it really sucks that they switched the pronouns…
IDFK, I need sleep.
(But seriously, when are we getting a billboard like that? :|)
