Today starts Autism Acceptance Month. I'm autistic. Being autistic is pretty cool, tbh, as long as culturally dominant neurotypicals get their weird ableist expectations out of the way.

@epilanthanomai it feels ironic that my noise cancelling headphones broke on the eve of autism awareness month.

@mattcen Yeah but you know how it is for people with allism: They have trouble with change unless it's sanctioned by someone with clout. We have to train them with tiny changes to convince them it's safe.
