questions

What makes us like a certain color? Pink and blue or yellow and orange? How come some people like the taste of a certain food while others cannot stand it? How are some of us night owls and others morning birds? How are we attracted towards some people and not others? We’re made the same way, aren’t we?

What is it about us, about people, that makes us so different? We are all so goddamn messy, yet still capable of causing each other so much pain.
—  People are so flawed, and yet I still love them. 
Questions and itaat

- (not a feel) can high temperature(like really hot days) cause sensory overload? -helena beat asks

Yes


- Am I selectively mute even if I can talk in the situations where I’m not naturally able? I force myself to talk because it’s socially expected and I have to, but it’s hard and I’d rather not. I’m really good at faking it, but I actually have to force it.

Yes, I think so.


- all of my usual go-to blogs for these types of questions aren’t active so i was wondering if you or some followers would be able to tell me if there’s a separate name for something i’ve always called “verbal dyslexia,” saying syllables in the wrong order or removing them all together?? also is it part of dyslexia to replace letters that don’t look alike but sometimes have similar sounds (like clean accidentally becoming klean, impulse to empulse)?? thanks 🌕

I would say verbal/oral dyslexia. It could also be a symptom of auditory processing disorder. I don’t think there is a specific other word than verbal dyslexia? There is a term called aphasia but it is caused by brain injury so it is a different thing.


- (Maybe a little time sensitive cause anxiety is killing me) iiaat that i dont really feel sad/angry over this whole Manchester tragedy? I feel kinda bad for not feeling anything… Does not caring make me an awful person?

You are not a bad person. Having issues with caring is okay, and it is also okay to not care. It might be too exhausting, especially for people who are spoonies (have limited energy which goes away easily, which can be the case for someone who is autistic). Also people who have issues with compassion/empathy/sympathy are not bad or evil.

White guy @ dad's job: Trespasses for fun, gets stopped by a cop, and later talks about how uncalled for it was for the cop to pull a gun on him for trespassing. —— Same white guy when he learns guns have been pulled on us when cops pulled us over or stopped us or even when my bros were simply walking in this white majority neighborhood: *trying his best to justify it and defend the cops and neighbor who've threatened our lives simply because we're black and "look dangerous".*

no but yeah, racism (anti-blackness in particular) are like toooootally over. /extreme sarcasm

p.s., i’m incredibly sorry this happened to you and your friends anon, that sounds absolutely terrifying :’(

anonymous asked:

Is it significant that Jeff Sessions, the current Attorney General, had recused himself from testifying? What does that mean exactly?

The Attorney General recused himself from the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia because he met with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the campaign while Sessions was a prominent Trump surrogate (and then declined to share those details when asked about them during his Senate confirmation hearing). There’s a clear conflict there because Sessions, as Attorney General and the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, is the Justice Department official ultimately responsible for the overall investigation and could very well be one of the subjects of the investigation. 

By recusing himself from the investigation, Attorney General Sessions basically is removing himself from any potential decision-making process regarding the investigation. That’s why the Deputy AG was responsible for appointing the Special Prosecutor and has been in a more public role than Deputy Attorneys General traditionally are.

anonymous asked:

It's a little funny that people on the internet want to argue with a critical criminologist + Phd student about whether or not police should kill black people whenever they want to. Lmao, I wish they'd just admit they hate black people, want us to be shot, and are glad that we're over two times more likely to face police brutality and put in prison vs white people, but NOOO, they have to regurgitate 'elaborate' reasons because they don't wanna be called out as the racist that they are.

I’ll just leave this here (bc it’s super accurate, sad, and terrible)

brosandprose  asked:

what if James had transformed into his animagus form when Voldemort showed up and Voldemort was like WTF WHY IS THERE A DEER IN THIS HOUSE

They had not drawn the curtains; he saw them quite clearly in their little sitting room, the tall black-haired man in his glasses, making puffs of colored smoke erupt from his wand for the amusement of the small black-haired boy in his blue pajamas. The child was laughing and trying to catch the smoke, to grab it in his small fist … A door opened and the mother entered, saying words he cold not hear, her long dark-red hair falling over her face. Now the father scooped up the son and handed him to the mother. He threw his wand down upon the sofa and stretched, yawning… The gate creaked a little as he pushed it open, but James Potter did not hear. His white hand pulled out the wand beneath his cloak and pointed it at the door, which burst open… He was over the threshold when suddenly a giant stag came galloping into the hall. ‘What the fuck!’ yelled Voldemort as the majestic beast charged at him, headbutting his balls. Voldemort fell to the floor in agony, bleeding profusely and crying from embarrassment. Lily Potter laughed and shooed him outside with a broom. The shame was too much. He would never return to this place again.
