our partner system @ConfusionCollective is new to mastodon because of wanting to get away from twitter and seeks out friends, accomplices and especially other transmasc folks on here, to make the experience of switching less lonely. i think all y'all would like and enjoy them.
things I learned in sex ed when I was a kid:
❌ consent is important
❌ consent is never implied
❌ anything about consent
❌ anything about women's sexual health (it was sex segregated)
❌ you might be gay
❌ you might be trans
❌ it is normal or ok to have sex for reasons besides making a baby
✅ STDs will RUIN your life!!
✅ here's how you put a condom on a banana
A guide for non autistic people on how not to support ableism in April
Autism Speaks is bad, they want autistic people ‘cured’, otherwise known as eugenics. They are non autistic people speaking over us.
There are more horrible things AS do but this would be a very long post if I included them all.
Do not support or promote them.
ABA is a form of torture to force autistic people to mask our behaviour. It is not a helpful ‘therapy’. Even if someone didn’t have a bad experience it doesn’t negate the people who have been traumatised.
Light it up blue is an autism speaks event.
Light is up red is an autism community event in opposition to AS speaks.
Autism awareness is an autism speaks phrase. Autism acceptance is an autism community phrase.
The blue puzzle piece and puzzle pieces in general as a symbol are a red flag. It’s from the idea us autistic people are ‘incomplete‘.
We speak, sign and vocalise for ourselves. We do not need any NT people to communicate for us or decide our needs and rights.
We're the Confusion Collective. Still figuring everything out. Not all of us are tooting.
