On the 14th July, I found out that the 18th June is Autistic Pride Day. Whoops, looks like I just missed that. Now, what to do about that? I know: MAKE EVERY DAY AUTISTIC PRIDE DAY!

There's a German website that appears to have content made out of gold, metaphorically speaking. I couldn't really find an English equivalent of it, but the very short version is (and this is something I agree with wholeheartedly):

Autism is not a disease, not a sickness and not a mental illness. No two brains are the same and no two brains should be the same and Autism is more a part of neurodiversity. The problem is that this society is so completely adapted to non-autistic people (often called NTs) that it thinks that everything tat divides from the norm is an illness, a disease that needs to be cured. But it's not. 

Do you have an identity? Do you have that something that makes you you, that makes you different from anyone else in some way, that makes you who you are and that you wouldn't want to live without? 
"Autism" is the description of people who are individually different from other people in some way, something you might not even notice if this society was built up differently, in a more accepting and tolerating way. The only way to "cure" Autism is to take away the identity of the person, by torturing them until their mind breaks or something. And trust me, that's not nearly as fun as it sounds. (It doesn't sound fun, meaning that it's much worse) 

I am who I am and if you can't accept that, shut the fuck up and go home, otherwise feel free to have a cookie. 
Just let me be who I am and I'm happy.

Well, that's something I can work with :dummy: That is, if it's okay for me to humanize her? Also, any ideas what the colors (of her skin, hair, clothes) would be? :O
Dark-Fire-Dragoness Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yesh. X3 Her hair and stuff would be like this I guess, or just black hair. Skin just Caucasian, black jacket and pants with a red shirt? X3 I don't know, something like that. d:
