Today’s Autistic character of the day is:
John Constantine from Constantine
when you’re trying to mind your own business but That One Nasty Fuck across from you is chewing with their mouth wide open at like max volume and you don’t have anything to block out the noise
As I have said before, I usually don’t respond to anonymous ‘hate’ messages as I feel it gives the sender a podium. So while I am weary I am subjecting others to negativity and outright hatefulness, I feel it’s important to share what happens when someone with autism dares to make a post about their experiences. I feel very sorry for people who send messages like these. I believe that happy and well-adjusted people do not wish death on others or resort to using slurs to get their point across. It must be painful to carry so much anger and resentment around.
I received 14 messages all, some who disagreed with my post were polite, and some not-so. Apologies, but I will not be responding to any asks/messages no matter the content. As soon as I figure out how to turn off these features, they will be disabled permanently. It is a shame they are so often used as a tool to cyberbully.
Forced myself to feed my cats
Forced myself to move despite my body’s defiance
Fed my cats
Sat down to find
Shifted shutdown to meltdown
Cue loop of: “you’re a piece of shit, you’re a piece of shit, you’re a piece of shit”
Intense physical self-inflicted outburst.
Continue on: “you’re a piece of shit, you’re a piece of shit, you’re a piece of shit”
i have been watching a lot of my little pony lately and is it just me or do almost all the main characters seem like they have autism n also maybe something else. like pinkie, twilight, fluttershy, rarity, discord, big mcintosh, all three of the cutie mark crusaders, n possibly rainbow n princess luna, seem very autistic-coded (pinkie also definitely has adhd, n fluttershy seems like she has the fawn trauma response)
Someone educate me on autistic sadness
Why do I just… stop
In a very literal manner
It’s been hours and I’m in the same spot
Cold but can’t move to put on the shirt on the back of the chair on which I’m sitting
Why am I unable to switch tasks?
Unable to speak?
Unable to express even in text?
Why the desire to shrink, be quiet…
Why am I so consumed with the desire to become unknown?
Why the depths
For a sadness shallow
Consuming by all definition
Why does autistic sadness set in so quick so heavy
Can anyone explain
Why I seemingly cease to exist
In the presence of sadness?
Nate River is autistic and I can tell you this because the way he sits is Very Autism.
No, I will not be taking questions.
drop your hot takes on autism/neurodivergency and i’ll rate them
The most annoying thing about me is that I will slowly become obsessed with something and I want to scream to everyone I know about my new obsession but I also refuse to do that or interact with anyone who shares my obsession because I don’t want it to be tainted by other people’s opinions. I just want it to stay in the little bubble in my mind and then that is annoying. Basically what I’m saying is that my brain is a bitch :)
Why does autism have to have both a need for routine AND executive dysfunction that prevents us from keeping the routine
some of the traits that i have that made me realize i’m autistic
I decided my pronouns are she/they today 🥰
I define my gender as female, but also gender non-conforming. As a bi girl, I find that I often fluctuate between feeling and expressing femme and androgynous identities, and I’ve also been experimenting with butch fashion. (Spoiler alert: I love being butch.)
I don’t really care if someone calls me she/her or they/them. I also don’t know if I’d go quite so far as saying that I am non-binar; I just like to express myself in different ways on different days. ❤️❤️
I have been listening to the same album on repeat all day except for the four hours when I had class and if that’s not neurodivergent then idk what to tell you

Hello there! I’m fairly new to tumblr, but you seem cool so I’m gonna let you in on a not-very-secret. I do a nightly (except sundays) Twitch stream starting 7pm EST focusing on disability rights, autistic pride, neurodiversity, and Deaf history. If that sounds interesting to you, hit me with a follow at https://www.twitch.tv/patchdonal
16. Do you sit in chairs correctly?
I’m both gay and neurodivergent. If there is any way to sit incorrectly on a chair, I will find it. Some of my favourites include that’s not a chair, why are you upside down, and fetal position. When I was younger I’d also lie across the top of the armchair in my living room.
17. Are you the person who bounces their leg, or the one who gets distracted by people bouncing their leg?
I’m both! Hypocritical, I know, but I do the leg bounceᵗᵐ when I get excited but am also very easily distracted
