Now Playing Tracks

Autism is the way our brains work. It is a disability, yes, but most issues are societal based. Meaning that that non autistic people could learn how to effectively communicate with us, learning how we speak and communicate and accepting us as we are. But instead, it seems like most non autistic people would rather try and find a cure to fix us, rather than make accommodations for us.

For example, non autistic people often try to change the way that we move, by silencing our hands, telling us that our interests are boring, that we talked too much about one subject, that we are creepy because we don’t make eye contact, or that we are just plain old weird. Those are the more mild problems that we encounter. I know that people trying to good with things like autism the acceptance. But often they aren’t really helping us.

People are aware of autism. They know that autism exist. But what are they doing for acceptance? That’s what matters most autistic adults that I know. We have had enough awareness we’ve had enough campaign led by groups like Autism Speaks. Now is the time for accepting an understanding. Listen to people. Hear about our experiences.

Also I used non autistic people instead of allistic because my text to speech app kept trying to change allistic to autistic. Just as a point of reference.

The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

She is a goddamn QUEEN

way too cool ;v; she is amazing

If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.

Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.

So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.

This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite

This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.
