completely unrelated tags

i legitimately cannot believe i just
saw this post on my dashboard in 2017. you would not believe my shock when i realized it was a real post, not a screen cap of a post from 2013 tumblr. i am so beyond haunted. everything from their url, the completely unrelated tags, the sheer deathly quality of the image… it all fills me with undeniable dread that we never actually defeated this evil

desperate hsc student in need of help guys pls

UPDATE: questionnaire is now closed, I got 180 responses!! thank you so so so so much guys oh my god thank you I am so grateful ————————————–

aight fuck ok so here’s the lowdown:

My name is Audrey, I’m a 17 year old student from Sydney, and I’m also highkey fucked for this research paper that my teacher expects due on monday 

It’s for my Society and Culture class (the PIP lmao), and i gotta conduct a questionnaire to about 60 people, it’s about the responsibility of communicating ethics  in children’s film, and whether it’s appropriate (or even necessary) to address stuff like racism and sexism in children’s movies

I’d really really appreciate the help, and if you could reblog this and share it around that would be so so helpful

I’m aware of how annoying posts like these are, especially since it’s completely unrelated to the tag you’re looking up, but idk man i am really desperate right now so please forgive me 

thank you so so much guys, i’m sorry about this lmao 

here’s the link:

2. having to see said art on my dash because of completely unrelated tags i follow

anonymous asked:

(sigh) there's been a lot of negative posts I keep seeing sometimes in completely unrelated tags about stimming isn't for "neurotypicals". It kind of made me feel a little down. I'm very mentally ill, but I also have a lot of traits associated with Sensory Processing Disorder... I don't have the energy to go see if I really do or not... I just want to keep doing what helps me stay sane. I really appreciate your blog, and all of the resources you put out there. Thank you.

Lovely anon, I am sorry for keeping you waiting on this.

I’ve seen a few of those posts myself, with regards to spinners, which are apparently popular right now in the US.

(Not being American - here in Australia handmade slime is just starting to catch on - I can only go by what Americans are posting, which appears to be posts on stores selling out of spinners and discussions about popularity resulting in teachers banning spinners from classrooms.)

I’ll say to you this: You. Are. Not. Neurotypical. Like, neurodiversity isn’t a “if you hit fifty points or more you’re ND” quiz. It isn’t. (I know they can assess autism this way, which was how mine was, but since I came to agree with that assessment through community exploration, I don’t consider it all that worthwhile.) If you have a need for stim toys, if you have mental illness, if you have SPD traits, even if you never get a paper diagnosis, you’re ND, and you’re us. If you’re only ND in one or two aspects, you’re not neurotypical. If your only problem is smell sensitivity and you stim because of that, you are not neurotypical. All you need is some difference that causes disability in some way, for which stim toys are an aid as much as a crutch or chair. You cannot sit still through a class? Here’s an aid that will help you do that. That’s it.

(I am absolutely and unequivocally for self-diagnosis or partial diagnosis or people who are questioning but find they need stimming. I am here for “ND, but not sure exactly how yet” and engaging in the stim community because it is a need that helps them survive. I am absolutely and unequivocally not for any kind of gatekeeping that stops ND people, who may not know they’re ND because we’re all forced to mimic neurotypical behaviour, from finding connection, community and support.)

I understand why people are blogging as they are: when something is adopted by the masses, teachers in a classroom setting tend to ban it as a distraction, meaning those who need it (especially those without paper diagnoses or poor support systems in place) no longer have access to it. It’s a problem, a very real problem. Stim toys need to be in ND hands. Having a disability aid turned into a fashion or fad means that disabled people have to find alternatives and run the risk of even those alternatives not being accepted.

But. We need to discuss this problem in ways that don’t alienate or exclude people who think themselves NT who are exploring popular stim toys and discover they need these toys as much as we do. We need to remember that ableism teaches us to act as NT as possible, so much so that we repress our differences in thought and feeling, so much so that we lose stimming. (I know I did.) We need to remember that autism (as one case example) is often diagnosed late in people who aren’t white and cis masculine, and some of those annoying NT stimmers who have appropriated the toy might actually need it themselves.

I’m wary, as I’ve said before, of outright statements like “stimming isn’t for neurotypicals”. I’m wary because I’m late diagnosed, because I didn’t even get a depression or GAD diagnosis after I was twenty despite having been the most anxious person ever my whole childhood, because I know that a great many ND people can spend years of their life not knowing they are ND. Because society teaches us to bury, as best we can, our neurodiversity. I’m wary because I think it doesn’t give ND people who don’t know they’re ND entry into the community they need.

In a way, I think it’s a dreadful catch twenty-two: the problem is born of ableism (an aid turned into a fad), but the dialogue about it doesn’t take into account how ableism stops people knowing themselves.

I don’t know, not really, what is the best way to approach this conversation.

All I can say is that if you need to stim, given that I consider that need a sign of neurodiversity in some way, you’re welcome here. You don’t need to tell me how you’re neurodiverse, because I don’t care. You don’t have to fully know yourself - all you need to know is what you’ve said, that stim toys are an aid. This space is for you. Stimming is for you. You absolutely belong here, anon.

(And general reminder that “neurotypical” doesn’t equal “not-autistic”, and allistic neurodiverse folk who stim are valid, wonderful and absolutely belong in the stim community.)

Tumblr pet peeves:

1. When people don’t align the pictures in photosets resulting to some pictures getting cut in the thumbnail
(Pro-tip: the pictures are draggable on the app and desktop)

2. When there are completely unrelated posts on the tag that you follow
(Pro-tip: when the post is about person A and isn’t at all about person 2, for the love of god don’t tag it with “person 2”)

I don’t understand why people tag completely unrelated stuff/people on their Instagram posts.

Someone took a picture of something that had zero to do with musical theater and the caption also had zero to do with musical theater, but every single hashtag was some show’s name or some actor’s name.

What does your lunch or your medicine cabinet have to do with Andrew Rannells or Hello Dolly?

(I mean, I suppose it’s better than actually tagging the actors instead of just using the hashtag, but when I look up #brandonuranowitz, I want to see birthday posts, not gummy vitamins!)

“how dare you kinkshame us! our community is safe and consensual!” yelled the kink bloggers as they continuously shoved “daddy’s little whore” posts directly into the eyeballs of anyone going through completely unrelated tags, reblogged photos of random girls and women on their 18+ blogs, and made sexual comments about minors’ selfies
