  • Hi Alex!
    While I have my own personal favorites in Smash, I admire your ability to go so in-depth about something you are so passionate about. It always makes me happy when I see other people infodump. I don’t think I could ever be so bold as to say “This is why Windwaker is the best Zelda game” … personally I would be much more likely to say…Read More

    Jimmy posted a new activity comment

    Hi, thank you so much for your comment! For clarification what I meant by, “Many of us, including myself, have a very fluid understanding of sexuality norms, as well as gender norms” is referring to how as an autistic individual, my understanding of social norms that surround attraction and gender are very different than non-autistic folk. Thus…Read More

    Xenogenders (and how they tie into the autistic and trans community)

    We've all heard the infamous "I identify as an attack helicopter" joke, and usually, in reply, someone says something about how that is either homophobic or transphobic. However, comments like that are more like that of ableism, rather than...

    • Dear Jimmy 

      I am impressed by your post, “Xenogenders (and how they tie into the autistic and trans community)” because I never knew “Transphobia” was a real thing.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “And people will also always make these jokes not fully understanding what it means to identify outside the binary, let alone to identify with xenogenders.” I think this is very common in our generation and surroundings because people don’t realize they hurt others with these types of jokes.

      Another sentence that was impressive  was: “These two connected things can also be connected to autistic children developing childhood trauma. So, if you classify gender dysphoria as a mental illness then you can most certainly say that it can develop due to childhood trauma.” This stood out for me because these are serious disorders and traumas that people don’t realize who they are picking on.

      I’m not sure what you meant to say on the post when you said “Many of us, including myself, have a very fluid understanding of sexuality norms, as well as gender norms’’ but i think you meant you have a little understanding about sexual and gender subjects.
      Have you seen this article? https://psychcentral.com/autism/autism-and-transgender I thought you might be interested in this because of it relates to the post you wrote. It touches some deep subsjects you have toched more in details.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your post is very interesting and informative about today’s world.

    Jimmy commented on the post, How Far Is Too Far?

    I want to thank you for writing something about a group of people that hits so close to home for me. I think however it is important to mention the other types of discrimination that people face, outside of depression and anxiety; such as schizophrenia, dissociative disorders, and personality disorders. These have negative stereotypes about them…Read More
