basiacat asked: YO speaking of autism speaks and shitty-as-fuck charities, do you know of any charities/organizations/movements out there that are for neurodivergent folks, by neurodivergent folks?
I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE ASKED!
If you want to support autism acceptance (being autistic I’m not super-hip on organizations for other types of neuroatypicality, but if y’all have a suggestion let me know!), please consider checking out these fab organizations:
The Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN) is run by autistic people, for autistic people. They don’t advocate a cure; they advocate acceptance, better diagnostic methods, and teaching tolerance and coping skills hand-in-hand. They also directly help autistic people get the services they need, which Autism Speaks doesn’t give a shit about, and provide education on autism to the public (rather than scare tactics. Looking at you again, Autism Speaks). Their website is also very awesome in that you can customize lots of different aspects of it for accessibility reasons.
The Autism Women’s Network is specifically for autistic women or anyone who has ever identified as a woman (they’re very insistent on affirming gender identity too, so: trans friendly! Which is so important, because research indicates that those on the autism spectrum are more likely to be gender-nonconforming). The women’s network is important; until really recently it was thought that only those with XY chromosomes could even BE autistic, so acknowledging that we exist and have different needs than our male-identified counterparts is a Serious Issue.
The National Autism Resource and Information Center is linked with ASAN, but is a separate entity. There’s a buttload of information there for those who are autistic or have autistic family members.
The DJ Fiddle Foundation supports adults with autism! How amazing is that? Because of Autism Speaks there’s a fuckton of information about kids with autism (not all of it good or science-based), but little support, help, or information about us adults.
We also have lists of organizations floating around that we should avoid supporting because they donate to Autism Speaks, but consider shopping with ThinkGeek, who supports community-based self-advocacy programs, like ASAN and the AWN.
As always, if anyone knows of any other good charities, organizations, or companies I could add to this list, my askbox is over here.
Me as a kid.
PLEASE READ, POSSIBLE VIRUS GOING AROUND
Okay, so this is the 2nd time that I’ve gotten this message. At first I was like “Oh yeah its just someone who’s trying to get themselves promoted or something but then I got this again and it doesn’t seem right because they changed their name to Victoria suddenly??? When I first got it it was Nathaly but this could be a virus I have no clue, I never went to the website or their tumblr because I don’t want to get any possible viruses on my computer so I might be wrong but just in case please reblog it because I don’t want anyone to get any viruses. If I’m wrong then please tell me and I’ll take this down but for now please reblog this, thank you!
UPDATE: Yeah it’s virus blogs. I’ve gotten them from two different people and their title was the same. One was “Beautiful Landscapes” and the other was “Beautiful Tattoos” and so yeah reblog this really fast before anyone gets the virus ok thanks again. The first blog that sent me this was zinokmass so watch out for zinokmass and labagaww thank you guys so much ignore the message if you get it
Word of advice guys: if you see any message that says something like “you have to stay on the page for 10-20 seconds” it is probably a virus and you should stay away. Keep your computers safe kids.
