I grew up in the Southern Baptist church with about half of my family being missionaries. I currently attend a small evangelical church while I'm in college, and I love the community of other college students, but some of the stuff that is being taught and pushed is really starting to get to me. I'm not sure if I should stay where I am for the next two years of college and try to encourage conversation and improvement, but I think leaving now would be hard.

So I found @mike through Twitter when he made his podcast about being . I listened to it and it meant a lot to me because I have come to believe that I am autistic. I follow a lot of really awesome Autistic advocates on Twitter now and I see so much of myself in them, but I'm afraid to comment because I probably should actually talk to people I know in real life about it first instead of just coming out as autistic online. But I don't know how to do that and I really need the community

@mike I went to our free counseling services at my school and I clearly knew more about autism than the guy who was counseling me. He told me I couldn't be autistic because I have friends 😑 and when I told him about some trauma I have from my childhood he said that it was normal, so I stopped going. I think that knowing I'm autistic has helped me to cope a lot better. I understand why some things are harder for me, but I'm afraid to share that label because there are so many misconceptions

@mike So if there are any other people here or people who think they might be I would love to connect with you and talk about it. I want to share this part of me with my friends and family but I just don't know how and I'm afraid they'll dismiss it and me

Important for us white academics to actively promote scholars of color.
Important for cis academics to use trans scholars.
Important for het academics to use queer scholars.

Important to use our classrooms as spaces of radical change - even if the students don't read the syllabus

Subtoot: getting arrested for a pointless provocation is not activism.

It is posturing. It’s great that you want to be active, but you’ve just literally shat the bed.

If you’re someone sending people out to be arrested on a pointless provocation: fuck you. This is not helping. Articles in the guardian don’t change this.
