Also, ngl, I was going to post a survey for my book about autistic people and those with ADHD today, because it’s about people with multiple different experiences with autism and ADHD, and I really only have my own experiences and then the Sia shit happened and I’ve talked about it a lot, and now I have mixed feelings about about posting it.
One one hand, with the discussion over it that’s happening right now, it may be a good chance to give the autistic community something that’s NOT Sia related, and it can contribute to discussions going on about neurodivergency.
On the other hand, I feel like it’s rare that ableism gets this much attention, so would it take attention away from discussions that need to happen, or could it contribute? Also, at this point it may seem like a “fuck you” to Sia, and not something I’m doing purely to benefit my own work.
I want to thank everyone who helped me out by taking and/or reblogging my survey. I started off with 60 responses before I posted it to Tumblr, and have now reached over 470. I’m going to start analyzing data soon, so I unfortunately have to close the responses now. All of you helped me surpass my goals and expectations.
Thank you! 💙🥰
