My old mentor is shitting on Greta Thunberg on the birdsite, and I confronted him about it. He’s a smug Christian College professor that loves to hate on atheists/millennials, and this is an extension of that. What’s worse is that on Facebook, he says he’s even more against her cause because his son has ASD/OCD and thinks she’s a puppet of her parents. It makes me mad that he doesn’t think she’s capable of the work she’s doing of her own volition, just because she’s 16 and is on the spectrum.

I’ve been learning python and digging back into math recently. Anyway, here’s a sine wave transforming into a saw wave via a Fourier transform.

This goes on for a looong while, and actually caused my browser to crash. What is it, and how do we make sure it won't happen again? @mike

(+)Autism, freedom 

i started thinking how weird it is that people like this stuff lol. I’m all for people liking what they like, but it was a first of genuinely not getting it. I’m having lots of moments where I don’t default to “yeah, of course this is what humans like” and realize that I really don’t get some typical things...and it’s okay and a wonderful and freeing thing.

anyone else feel this?

(+)Autism, freedom 

I went to a club with my SO, sister, and one of our friends. I brought earplugs, but after a drink and a minute, I’m sitting on a couch away from all the motion and noise...

autism, suicide 

Seriously? The first thing that occurs to people is some sort of neurobiological difference causing higher rates of suicidality?

It seems like the first thing anyone should explore is how we're treated and what our experience of the world around us is like.

I have yet to hear any autistic person who hasn't faced rejection, hostility, isolation, abuse, or outright assault because we don't present and respond as others expect.

(-) xian rant 

I work with a christian medical system and edit testimonial style videos for some internal stuff they do. Going through one interview and one of their employees said "I don't see how healthcare can be healthcare without prayer and faith." It reminds me when people would say "only christians can do good things. Everyone else just does good things for their own selfish reasons." That shit makes me so mad. It's at the very least ignorant and more often than not entitled in-group bias.

Tried drawing a cat on a ML drawing app (magic-sketchpad.glitch.me/).

It was cool when I started drawing the faces. Then it kept drawing more cat faces.

Brain Fog, Autism 

what's been your experience of brain fog?

I slept for 24+ hours this weekend, and had endless brain fog until this morning when I woke up at my usual time, and did my normal routine.

I've heard that that's a thing, but haven't connected it all. Anyone else experience that? Also, anyone have a good way of not being so overwhelmed by it?

ASD Diagnosis (+) 

I finally got my Autism Diagnosis! I was skeptical the psychologist would give me one since I mask very well (something he acknowledged in my final session). It was a great relief mainly because I felt heard and validated.

Thanks to all on this platform who have helped me see this about myself and find the acceptance and validation I needed. You all rock.
