omg wtf lol [S.]

I can read a map. I can read a map upside down. I can read a map turned left or right. I can read a map diagonally. I can even memorize it to the extent that I don't actually need to look at the paper.

But I can't make any sense out of a fucking bus timetable. FFFFFUUUUUU--

"Are you drawn to tables, charts, and graphs of information?" I have an interest in them when they're being SHOVED UP YOUR ASS, Simon Baron-Cohen.*

*(Metaphorically. I do not have an actual interest in doing something I actually know would be unethical, even to someone who has made it so that I now have to disclaim every sarcastic wish for something bad to happen to someone, because Eminent Scientists think I'm a sociopath. Add that one to the Neurotypical Privilege Checklist if it's still being added to.)

I have these ideas that probably aren't good for us. [S.]

Like this idea to set up a blog or website cooperatively written by actual autistic people, that goes through and takes apart the writings of various autism "experts" line by line, pointing out all their fallacies and cherry-picked information.

It would be cathartic. But it would also probably be draining as hell, even with other people working on it. And I think for me personally, half the time it would end in incoherent "rargh rargh RAGE KEYBOARD SMASH TAKE THIS BROKEN KEYBOARD AND SHOVE IT UP YOUR ASS SIMON BARON-COHEN AJLDSGFSJHJDHGH,SJGF." (Other people in here, uh, could probably keep a cooler head. But I'm the one who comes up with the ideas a lot of the time for some reason, that... I can't hardly do, because I seem to be better at more blunt forms of self-protection.)
