Sometimes I say I'm probably autistic and stuff like that, but really... I'm just me. Whether I fit that particular diagnostic label or not seems largely irrelevant to me. I'm just a person who has their own neurological needs and experiences.
It is only among autistic and nuerodiverse folks (and their allies/friendly folk) that I feel like my personal neurological needs are acknowledged and addressed.
If a person who is otherwise NT has problems with sharp, high pitches sounds... Why would you continue to make them?
If a person gets overwhelmed in noisy environments, why would you insist they have to go into them if they don't have a note from a doctor excusing them from doing so?
Why are people like this?
for us, it was more or less "if we need to fight someone over it at some point, which is possible if not likely, it won't be our word against theirs".
why are people like this, indeed
@pandora_parrot honestly? Because the vast majority of people are disgustingly narcissistic.
This is exactly the kind of stuff I put up with daily here.
