welcome to my blog, rynia!
Every ~*Autism Awareness Month*~ we suffer people rolling up in our tags and posting their blue light shit and refusing to hear that they may be, y’know, not supporting the right people. Could we maybe try to raise some real awareness?
Tags we could hit:
- Autism Speaks
- Autism Awareness Month
- autism awareness
- Alpha Xi Delta (sorority whose official philanthropy is Autism Speaks; have repeatedly straight-out refused contact and conversation)
- Theta Delta Chi (fraternity whose official philanthropy is AS)
Let me know if you think of more!
Remember that only the first five tags in a post get put on tag pages, so if you tag all of these, only the first five show up! Make multiple posts or choose your top 5.
i understand the sentiment of this sort of stuff but this is not universally applicable i mean some people might find it downright offensive just don’t assume that every person is going to agree with this
i mean if you don’t have a mental illness it’s not your job or even your place to organize the rhetoric around it. i’ve been told by allistic people that it was wrong to call myself an “autistic person” and i should call myself a “person with autism” instead. like, telling people what they can and cannot call themselves is usually a no no. i don’t claim to speak for anyone but myself, and you probably shouldn’t either.
i mean it also comes back to the fact that what you’re saying here is essentially that merely stating the fact that he might be a so-called “mentally ill man” inherently makes him seem less human. like. don’t you think that’s a bigger problem than needlessly pedantic bullshit.
Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.
I have never related more to Eren then I do right now
i bet they’re a huge dork and secretly an anaconda
they are an amazing huge dork, but if they are an anaconda, their human disguise is amazing and very attractive
Hemp is a Sensible, Sustainable, Highly-Industrializable Plant
We should utilize it. Hemp could solve many problems.
END PROHIBITION. It is NOT just about smoking.
people would be setting plastic chairs on fire and smoking animal bedding and shit

alcohol and cigarettes are legal, but not weed. jesus.
Quick Cosplay Tip!
Need to photograph fabric to compare colours, or show someone else what you’ve bought, but your camera just isn’t getting the colour right? Give it a reference point!
Most cameras will judge white balance off of two things: Something white, and/or skin tone.* Stick a sheet of white paper to the side of your fabric (It needs to be largish so the camera will register, I usually stick it about 1/4-1/3 of the photo frame) when you take your photo, or put your hand or foot in the shot. Bam, your colours will be MUCH closer to reality.**
Remember: ALWAYS TAKE A PHOTO OF YOUR FABRIC BEFORE YOU BUY IT. It’s so important to know how something will look under a flash, which is how most of your photos will be taken at con!
Hope this helps!
*Camera processors are still pretty racially programmed so this works best with white skin, but depending on camera and model you may find success if you’re a PoC. Best I can say is trial and error there.
**This does not promise to fix the whole ‘things on my monitor look different than real life’ issue. It just helps.
