I have tried to help Autism Speaks staffers understand how destructive its messages have been to the psyches of autistic people. We do not like hearing that we are defective or diseased. We do not like hearing that we are part of an epidemic. We are not problems for our parents or society, or genes to be eliminated. We are people.

John Elder Robison, "I resign my roles at Autism Speaks"

Robison was the only openly autistic person among 37 people on the Autism Speaks Scientific Advisory Board and the only openly autistic person among 19 people on the Autism Speaks Treatment Advisory Board. Zero members of the AS Board of Directors, most senior executive staff, or Government Relations Team are openly autistic.

And now, after three years, Robison has resigned as well.

TIME TO LISTEN UP! I get a lot of asks from people who have Trichotillomania, dermatillomania, nervous habits, nail biting problems and anxiety  issues that make them harm their body in an effort to relieve stress. If you do any of those things, you should be paying attention to this post.

This is not a cure, this is a way to help you keep your hands busy.

Remember, idle hands pull strands!!

a spinner ring is a two part ring. The base band and the free spinning band. You can put it on a finger while you’re reading and have a free hand and keep that hand busy by spinning it with your thumb, or you can use both hands. It really helps keep your hands busy.

This ring cost me 12 dollars at the Trichotillomania Learning Center site.

Go do yourself a favor and get one- it has helped me so much.

http://store.trich.org/category_s/77.htm

this startled me to come up on my dash because it’s relevant since i’ve been picking at myself lately since i have a lot of bugbites and things and ugh

this is one of those things i really should get for myself at some point haha j oj

I’ve been thinking of getting one of these since they’re cool, but wow I need this bad now so I can stop picking at everything. It’s not just my skin it’s everything, tape, paint, whatever.

Could also help with other compulsions :)

I used one of these until I gave it to a friend who also suffers anxiety problems last week, I always would spin it slower and slower and try to match my breathing to the speed I was twisting the ring back and forth at to ease myself out of a panic attack

Ten Reasons Why You Should Never Accept a Diamond Ring from Anyone, Under Any Circumstances, Even If They Really Want to Give You One

fuckyeahsexeducation:

1. You’ve Been Psychologically Conditioned To Want a Diamond
The diamond engagement ring is a 63-year-old invention of N.W.Ayer advertising agency. The De Beers diamond cartel contracted N.W.Ayer to create a demand for what are, essentially, useless hunks of rock.

2. Diamonds are Priced Well Above Their Value
The De Beers cartel has systematically held diamond prices at levels far greater than their abundance would generate under anything even remotely resembling perfect competition. All diamonds not already under its control are bought by the cartel, and then the De Beers cartel carefully managed world diamond supply in order to keep prices steadily high.

3. Diamonds Have No Resale or Investment Value
Any diamond that you buy or receive will indeed be yours forever: De Beers™ advertising deliberately brain-washed women not to sell; the steady price is a tool to prevent speculation in diamonds; and no dealer will buy a diamond from you. You can only sell it at a diamond purchasing center or a pawn shop where you will receive a tiny fraction of its original “value.”

4. Diamond Miners are Disproportionately Exposed to HIV/AIDS
Many diamond mining camps enforce all-male, no-family rules. Men contract HIV/AIDS from camp sex-workers, while women married to miners have no access to employment, no income outside of their husbands and no bargaining power for negotiating safe sex, and thus are at extremely high risk of contracting HIV.

5. Open-Pit Diamond Mines Pose Environmental Threats
Diamond mines are open pits where salts, heavy minerals, organisms, oil, and chemicals from mining equipment freely leach into ground-water, endangering people in nearby mining camps and villages, as well as downstream plants and animals.

6. Diamond Mine-Owners Violate Indigenous People’s Rights
Diamond mines in Australia, Canada, India and many countries in Africa are situated on lands traditionally associated with indigenous peoples. Many of these communities have been displaced, while others remain, often at great cost to their health, livelihoods and traditional cultures.

7. Slave Laborers Cut and Polish Diamonds
More than one-half of the world’s diamonds are processed in India where many of the cutters and polishers are bonded child laborers. Bonded children work to pay off the debts of their relatives, often unsuccessfully. When they reach adulthood their debt is passed on to their younger siblings or to their own children.

8. Conflict Diamonds Fund Civil Wars in Africa
There is no reliable way to insure that your diamond was not mined or stolen by government or rebel military forces in order to finance civil conflict. Conflict diamonds are traded either for guns or for cash to pay and feed soldiers.

9. Diamond Wars are Fought Using Child Warriors
Many diamond producing governments and rebel forces use children as soldiers, laborers in military camps, and sex slaves. Child soldiers are given drugs to overcome their fear and reluctance to participate in atrocities.

10. Small Arms Trade is Intimately Related to Diamond Smuggling
Illicit diamonds inflame the clandestine trade of small arms. There are 500 billion small arms in the world today which are used to kill 500,000 people annually, the vast majority of whom are non-combatants.

This is one of the worst things involved in the marriage system. Please, if you choose to get married do not involve a diamond ring in it. Do not accept diamonds as a gift and do not buy it for a loved one.

Science, get on this.  Catowls look like wonderful pets.

instead of hairballs they will give you pellets, which in turn would become educational fun for the children in your life

You realize this is what baby griffins would look like, right?
