You know that post that’s like “plus size women can’t…..” and it shows women doing a bunch of stuff like wearing bikinis and crop tops and throwing away the signs?? I want to do that for autism!! Like as a project for April, it would be so cool if I could collaborate with some people on it! Like some of the ideas I had were “Autistic people can’t get married” and me kissing my fiancé or “Autistic people can’t have children” and someone waving to the camera with their child on their lap! Is that a good idea? Would anyone be willing to work with me on that? @autistic-parenting?

Doctors are 'failing to spot Asperger's in girls'
Expert says many more girls have autism than was thought, and failure to diagnose them can lead to misery
By Amelia Hill

(AUTO) Older article, but it is so true even today.  Girls with ASD are simply failing to be diagnosed which means they are failing to be supported

stop telling trans kids that everyone has a phase of thinking they’re the opposite gender

stop telling autistic ppl that everyone’s “a little autistic”

stop telling aromantics/asexuals to wait for the right person

stop telling bisexuals that they’re “half straight”

stop invalidating people’s identity and start accepting that people are different to yourself and that’s okay
