ppl still do this

anonymous asked:

If I meet all the DSM-5 criteria for autism, and have many other common autistic traits, but I'm not affected in a "clinically significant way" at all by any of them (e.g. I take a little bit longer than most ppl to learn rules of socializing but I still make friends and do well talking to ppl and make good impressions on them) can I still be considered autistic? I feel like autism explains so much abt myself but I'm also not sure my traits are strong enough for me to be diagnosed with it. Thx.

You’re noticing that you’re different and that things take you longer, that makes your traits clinically significant. Clinically significant doesn’t mean that you cannot ever do the things described, just that it’s not easy for you to do/takes more effort than it would for someone who’s allistic or neurotypical.

Another way to look at this is that you have to do things explicitly differently than most people; that makes it clinically significant. You might not need much support - in this case, just a little more time to cope - but you still do need that support.

At the same time, if you are certain that you do not meet the standard for clinical significant, or despite the support you do need, it does not and never has impaired your life, then it is entirely possible that you are sub-clinical. This means, specifically, that you fit the neurotype - and are possibly a cousin - but that you don’t quite meet the clinical criteria for a diagnosis.

but it’s better if you do - panic! at the disco

My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)

sometimes you need to accept that yes i may have been a little bit manipulative. yes i worded something in a specific way that would make my friend/fp/SO feel a bit guilty. yes i could have handled that situation in a much better way. yes i am wrong.

turn: washington’s spies // series finale epilogue

hey guys i’m seeing the lance last name discourse popping up again and i urge you guys to remember that poc with white sounding names and mixed people exist. regardless if you want him with a latinx/hispanic last name or use mcclain or whatever, he’s still 100% Cuban no matter what. i understand the want for a hispanic/latinx last name, seriously, but please remember this and that even with a ‘white sounding name’ he’s not being white washed. this doesn’t mean that you can’t want a latinx/hispanic last name, just keep this in mind when you’re explaining why you want it and don’t throw other poc under the bus please.

gringxs can rb this but don’t add commentary please this is a latinx issue tbqh.

oh hELLLOOO– BOII You’re in for one hell of a ride once you meet these young shounen n see their actual relationship lmaoo fcghjkf

nahh but for real, if i had to compare HQ ships, bakudeku would be closer to Kagehina…but like worse lmao ;;; bUT the fluff be still there ;7; least I like to think so ahaha… OTL
and Kirideku would come closer to daisuga/UkaTake

as Kiribaku with IwaOi/KuroTsuki ….on some level just cuz Tsun Baku

rip I dunno if it’ll turn u around cuz of Bakugou’s canon treatment towards Deku in the beginning but personally I love how much more complex their relationship goes beyond what they first appear to be. There’s like…as many layers in their relationship as there are layers in my painttools SAI drawing lmao ;;;; 

tho whichever ship side you land on, I hope you enjoy this series as much as I have or at least enough ;;7;; i’ve enjoyed it so much as to fall into BNHA hell so i welcome you from down below–!! ^q^

all are free to use, just like/reblog if u plan to use em for anything :P

its been so long but im still trying to figure out how you could go from “i love you” to “i don’t care about you anymore” in such a short amount of time

i don’t see how anyone is surprised that marlene killed yvonne so spoby could happen. it was pretty fucking obvious that she wasn’t going to stick around from the start. it’s rushed, it’s shitty writing, it’s problematic as hell, and yvonne and spoby both deserved a far better resolution. 

But come on, this is the writing team that decided romance was having caleb and spencer fall in love for half a season only for caleb to cheat on her with hanna and then claim he’s loved hanna all along, who are still romanticizing a teacher/student relationship that, even looking past all it’s other transgressions, continues to be boring af, who think the best way to put emily and alison together, the slowburn ship to end all slowburn ships who would have had no trouble being brought together naturally, is to introduce two other girls for emily and then inject emily’s eggs into alison in a complete and utter violation of both girls bodies. 

like, did you expect better from the writers? really? if you didn’t see this coming i don’t know what to tell you.
