If you have questions about #atheism or #antitheism, I'm a non-white you can ask about such things to. It'll be 100% from my personal perspective and I cannot possibly speak for every atheist, particularly every atheists of color or other minorities. I don't have opinion on white atheist culture that's different from my opinion on whites in general, so don't ask me to excuse or care about their racism or other shitty opinions/ideas. I'm not here to clean up their mess or whatever
For some reason I got a lot of new followers over the weekend. Welcome!
Note I'm not white. I don't care about white opinions, and I don't hold whiteness sacred. I'm a brown Native before I'm anything. I hate when you claim our words and our lands. I hate everything you've done to us and other native peoples. I have no plans to forget the crimes perpetrated to Earth and its people for the last 500 years. If my lack of respect for your deadly race is a problem, you can fuckoff right now.
#intro I'm a weirdo with a lot of labels and I'm probably very different from you.
I'm working on starting a #disability lifestyle blog, training my service dog prospect, homeschooling my neurodivergent kids, and running a damn household with few spoons. I actually love all those things despite having spent 99% of my life feeling chronically suicidal. It's a bit surreal, how fucking optimist I am these apocalyptic days
If anyone has any experience with such things or suggestion, lemme know, eh?

I have #ttrpg material that needs a cultural/diversity consult from a PoC, specifically a black woman from the American South. It's 3000 words, set in a steampunk alternate 1880s world. I'm unemployed and can only afford $20 flat rate for the review, or trade for any of the necklaces I've posted for sale. Anyone?

I won a scholarship that brought down my busar bill to $417. For my spots in my classes to hold I have to pay this amount before the end of the month. The next time I get paid is at the end of the month and that check is going towards my rent. I'm asking for help securing my spot for classes next semester.
*UPDATE* I now need $257
Anything helps and thank you

Autistic People. So, new Research. Different social skills, not broken ones.
"In essence, what we are demonstrating for the first time is that autistic people's social behaviour includes effective communication and effective social interaction, in direct contradiction of the diagnostic criteria for autism. We have, for the first time, uncovered empirical evidence that there is a form of social intelligence that is specific to autistic people."
In other words, different social skills, not broken ones. We have our own social signalling and can co-operate and interact effectively....with each other. Likewise, non-autistic people can generally co-operate and interact effectively...with each other. But put one of each group together, and they both tend to misunderstand one another. They don't feel rapport with one another, that sense that you just 'click' with someone and understand them.
This isn't a new theory, of course. Dr Damian Milton has been discussing Double Empathy theory for a while now. https://kar.kent.ac.uk/62639/1/Double%20empathy%20problem.pdf
Here's a photo of our little #dog, slightly overcoming their worry of water. It's funny\sad for a duck tolling dog to be afraid of water. They spent too long in shelters it seems
Also I made them a collar! They've been wearing my big service dog's first collar but it knots up their cute ear fur

They're a gem and I want to support them in any way I can but this is, I'm afraid, outside of my purview.
thanks for reading!
