Virtually every dog relishes a loving scratch behind the ears and some sweet, vocal praise. But dogs identified as pit bulls get a bad reputation and a lot less love.

Literally the most accurate post
Trigger warnings: ableism, child abuse, depictions of violence, violence against people with disabilities, mental health crisis, forced institutionalization, ABA therapy/compliance training, ableist language, and dehumanization of a/Autistic people.http://www.donotlink.com/framed?513327
"For years I thought of his autism as beautiful and mysterious. But when he turned unspeakably violent, I had to question everything I knew."
This is a few years old but I had never seen it until now. I’ve read a lot of tough stuff over the past couple of years, and it all hurts me deeply, but this one really got to me. It broke my heart and I was sobbing by the end of it.
This awful person, this sorry excuse for a parent, forced her child into an abusive “program” to instil ABA practices and compliance therapy in an attempt at “recovery”, and then demanded he continue to pass indefinitely, to keep up the act and assuage her ego and anxiety about having a disabled child. This child’s parent, family members, and “therapists” stripped away his agency and abused him. They made him hate himself.
From the time he was twelve until he turned seventeen the author of the article loved her son. But as soon as he couldn’t keep up the “recovered” act anymore— as soon as he regressed, or entered autistic burnout, or had a breakdown, or whatever you want to call it— she withdraws her love and treats him like an animal. She literally compares him to an animal, a “night creature”. She paints this picture of a violent, unthinking animal, and at one point says that her son’s living situation (thanks to her) reminds her of Hannibal Lector’s cell.
It’s when her son needs her the most, when he begins to have serious mental health struggles, that she completely fails him. And then she goes on to write this harmful, devastating, and totally misinformed article. In truth this article is very revealing, not in the way she meant it to be, but revealing of her total misunderstanding of Autism, her self-centredness, and complete lack of empathy for her son. She makes her son’s entire life, his struggles and his pain, all about her. It’s like she couldn’t have hurt the a/Autistic community more if she tried.
I just… I just can’t understand. How can they do this to us? How they must hate us. Autistic people are so much more likely to be abused than to abuse, or to be the victims of violent crimes than to commit violent crimes. Who are the monsters, again? This is the end result of cure culture. This is the end result of the hate and fear perpetuated by Autism Speaks, Generation Rescue, Autism Now, and their allies. If we’re not being locked up and treated like animals our families are literally murdering us. And getting away with it.
If nothing else you’re supposed to be safe with your family, but for us it seems like we’re not safe anywhere.
this is my favorite thing
Probably the first time ive actually been proud to be a catholic.
Homer and Lisa’s relationship is one of my favourite things ever. He spent this entire episode trying to convince Lisa that she was beautiful, and he insisted to Marge that he wasn’t just saying it as a father, he genuinely believed that Lisa was the most beautiful girl in the world. Not to mention the fact that this episode ripped the shit out of the idea of child beauty pageants and how the self esteem of girl’s is diminished in general.
So why is one considered ‘inappropriate’ and the other accepted? Stop sexualising my body.
I wonder this too. Why is it a man’s breast and nipple are okay to show but a woman’s breast and nipple isn’t.
best thing to reblog yet
