Because we grew up being taught that the most important thing to learn is to fit in, we hid and we kept hiding until we were nowhere to be found.

Here’s to hoping the next generations of children won’t have to wait 30 years to find community among other autistics.

Here’s to glitter filled bouncy balls.

I am glad this very important (VERY IMPORTANT!) observation I made about rainbow swirly things has been recorded on the internet for posterity! :D

It’s a joy to be your friend, Paul. :)

eeeeeeeeeeeeeee (*´▽`*)

Unprompted, I know this is something somehow holy. Things swirl, there are bubbles and a rainbow maze, shake, shake, swirl. I look up, solemn. 

"The purple ones have a different specific gravity." 

The things we say when no one is listening for the answer you’re supposed to make, just the one that you actually have.

(Sorry for necroposting this super old comic Paul.)

The 2nd one is really beautiful. cynwise:

The Scully EffectOne of the most frustrating aspects of this scarcity is that we know just how significant an influence powerful female, scientist role models can have on young women.Perhaps the most prominent example of this power has come to be known as the “Scully Effect.” Named for Special Agent Dana Scully, the medical doctor and FBI agent who was one half of the investigative team on “The X-Files”, the Scully Effect accounts for the notable increase in women who pursued careers in science, medicine, and law enforcement as a result of living with Dana Scully over the nine years “The X-Files” ran on Fox.The show has been off the air for more than a decade. Yet the character of Dana Scully remains a powerful example of how a dynamic female character whose primary pursuit is science—not romantic relationships—can have a lasting impact on our culture.

Reasons I became a scientist: Dana Scully, 3-2-1 Contact, my AP bio teacher. Dana Scully’s Skeptical Eyebrow. Reasons I stopped being a scientist: the science-industrial construct, total lack of support or encouragement from my facility, health reasons, belief a lady had to give up a career for marriage eventually anyway.  God, I’d rather still be Dana Scully.

black and orange cow. it is a nature spirit. its body is covered in occult sigils and runes which pulse ominously.

melanistic cardinal. it is a ghost. it loves to devour the rotting plant matter covering the forest floor.

big pink tiger. it does not have organs- instead it is full of flowers….

I kind of love this? I am a pink gore tiger at heart.
