I’m a real live autistic person. How about that. I’m in my 30s and only found out I’m autistic a few years ago. Before that I just thought I was shit at nearly everything.
Finding out I’m autistic has been a hugely positive thing for me and for the first time ever I am actually happy and proud of myself.
I didn’t set out to be an activist or blogger really, but I find myself accidentally being a bit revolutionary by being autistic and being fine about it, actually.
So here is my blog about being autistic and cheerful.
About this blog
You may have noticed that I’m not an academic. I certainly bloody have. So this isn’t a clever, academic blog. I won’t be explaining sciencey things or explaining political theory in depth because it would probably make me cry if I tried. I’m more into trying to figure out why people are the way they are and how society could change to be more accepting of autistic people.
I also aim to keep my blog posts short partly because my attention span is fucked and partly because I want it to be as accessible as possible for people who have similarly fucked attention spans.
