People: all I see is s/u crit everywhere I cannot escape it :(
Me: 🤔 hmmmm
Looks in “s/u” tag: In recent I mostly saw posts in spanish and the occasional s/u liveblogging post
Now lets look in the top: mostly s/u screenshots, the occasional nice art.
Okay lets look in St*ven Un*verse tag:
First Recent: Lots of nice s/u art/posts and even asks with the title of s/u in it. So far no s/u critical posts.
Now top: a few videos, lots of nice positive art. Seems pretty good.
Now lets look in s/u critical tag:
First recent: a few good redraws of screencaps, asks with the tag name in it, long paragraphs of people whining about the tag, people insulting others for being critical, actual posts of people who loved the show who are disappointed by its current turn. And some art of redesigns that look nice.
Top: really good videos, some funny posts, some long text posts all in all pretty good.
So are you guys actively searching for these posts? Or am I just blind? 🤔
I’m good at
socializing. In fact, I’m great at it. I hate doing it, but I rarely get that
feel of ‘umm what does that mean’ or ‘why are those ppl doing that’. I avoid
social contact when I can, but I attribute that to me being an introvert
(speaking of, how can you tell the difference btw social avoidance in autistics
sarcastic. I make ppl laugh with my hilarious jokes (most of the time :P). I
can tell if someone’s bored or interested in what I’m saying, and if someone
wants to join the conversation.
Out of my
entire friend group, I’m the one who brought them together and reached out to
initially meet them. I’m the one who makes ppl feel comfortable and wanted in a
situation and I try to engage shyer ppl in conversations by finding things that
we connect on. I did this as a kid, too. I remember having an ‘older buddy’
when I was in 1st grade who had severe social anxiety and I would
try to make her feel comfortable and would talk to her about lord of the rings
to get her to open up.
I can do
small talk. Hate it, but I can do it. I guess I have a script for it (“How’s
life?” or “What’s the coolest thing that has happened for you this week?”),
I can hold
eye contact. I tend to look down and to the side or smth when ppl are telling
me smth (esp for a long time), but eye contact doesn’t burn or anything for me.
Ok, I have struggled occasionally (when talking for longer periods of time, esp
with teachers) to know how much eye contact should I use, or where I should
look (eyes?? their gesturing hands?? switch??). I remember trying to time it so
that I would look at my teacher’s eyes when he looked away and vice versa bc it
was uncomfortable for me to make eye contact w my male teacher. Isn’t that
normal, though?? Eye contact can be weird…
remember ever lining toys up when I was a kid, and frankly, I can’t remember having
any social aversion when I was little.
I have always felt ‘different’ for a
reason I’ve never able to name, and I know that other people have noticed that I
am so, but not as much as when I was younger. If I do end up being autistic, I guess
I’d attribute that to me getting better at socializing and acting ‘normal’.
I do act ‘normal’.
I’ve noticed that within the last four years I’ve learned to ask the right
questions and act animated when someone is excitedly telling me something. I sorta
have this almost, too-eager, bubbly personality that I adopt when I go up to
ppl to ask them for help, for example. I even exercise my facial muscles beforehand
so that I’ll be able to give someone a ‘real’ smile when I talk to them.
Ughh I just
don’t know. On the one hand, I identify with so many autistic traits (more than
what I’ve said here) but when it comes to the Real Autistic things like
socializing difficulties, I feel like I don’t have that many issues…
female autistics out there can give me some info/examples from their lives that
would help enlighten me about traits of a female autistic, I would love that so
(ps im in the process of researching autism to make a self dx)
Am I the only one who hates the term “come out of your shell” like I get that sometimes I seem shy but that doesn’t mean I need to change my personality.. If I don’t have anything to say I don’t say anything.. Simple as that

p sure the “y b cishet when u could b queer and trans” sentiments ppl are flipping out over range from sarcastic humor about cis ppl being boring to ppl genuinely urging ppl to explore their gender bc doing that is healthy and cool and often discouraged by our transphobic society?
