Postmodernism and Power: The Politics of Reality and its Manipulation

When I talk about the bullying I experienced for being autistic, people tend to take the wrong things away from what the worst parts of it were. The worst parts of it were not being urinated on or even being groped. Those were actually some of the least worst parts of my being bullied because,Continue reading “Postmodernism and Power: The Politics of Reality and its Manipulation”

The “Music” Movie: Another Autistic Evisceration of it

Many of my compatriots on the spectrum have lambasted the movie for many reasons. It seemed to be an attempt at adapting the horrendous 1970s-set 2003 movie “Radio” to low-functioning autism and using digital music instead of handheld radios. The movie posits that autistic people are childish, awe-filled, people with preschool imaginations filled with lollipopsContinue reading “The “Music” Movie: Another Autistic Evisceration of it”

Network Theory: Reinventing the Clique

                One of the perineal obstacles in this line of work, disability advocacy, is social inclusion and integration. To do this, I have suggesting things like extracurricular exchange programs in which clubs and sports would exchange members to decrease prejudice between the cliques and subcultures through what in social psychology is known as contact theoryContinue reading “Network Theory: Reinventing the Clique”

Social Age: Should an Official Age be Adjusted for Development?

One of the biggest problems with regards to developmentally different people is that their stages of development are slower and longer than neurotypicals. Now to abate any anticipated fears, the idea of adjusting someone’s age to their level of development would not normalize, justify, or validate anything sexually perverted. The maximum difference that this wouldContinue reading “Social Age: Should an Official Age be Adjusted for Development?”

The Universal Boogieman: Autism, Pseudoscience, and Why They Go Together

It has been a while since I last wrote an article pertaining to autism and life on the spectrum. I prefer to not reduce my class of people to their conditions and nothing more. Yet, in a pandemic of increasing conspiracy theories one Aspie experience becomes creepingly obtrusive. That is being the universal boogieman. MostContinue reading “The Universal Boogieman: Autism, Pseudoscience, and Why They Go Together”

The Subjectivity of Kindness: Hermeneutics of what Should be Objective

Kindness. While most would agree with the concept, as an ethicist, a psychologist, and a social scientist, the word’s ambiguity is problematic. In practice, anything that can be lawyered to be ultimately, even indirectly, altruistic is argued to be “kind”. When pressed, people will exploit the word’s vagueness to paint themselves in a much betterContinue reading “The Subjectivity of Kindness: Hermeneutics of what Should be Objective”

The Miracle of Birth: How Abusers Can Literally Make Victims Anytime They Want

The place where people without degrees in education, psychology, or anything like that are entrusted with the care of children is in parenting. Understandably, criticizing parenting, itself, will come as offensive to many parents. Yet, there are pandemic levels of mental conditions resulting from various types and degrees of abuse and one of the mostContinue reading “The Miracle of Birth: How Abusers Can Literally Make Victims Anytime They Want”

Sadistic Pedophilia in the Deep South

There are, undoubtedly, few phrases better used as click-bait than that one. I extend my gratitude to the gullible consumers whose eyes watered at the sight of that headline. When debates about corporal punishment occur, they occur without science and without a full grasp of what the situation is. To my logical Asperger’s mind, theContinue reading “Sadistic Pedophilia in the Deep South”
