You seemed to be leading up to this big conclusion, like this big definite conclusion but then it seemed to just drop off, leaving it up to the reader on what happened.

gingerhaze:

It’s always been meant to be up to the reader’s interpretation. One of the major themes is that nothing is as it seems, nothing is all good or all bad - it all depends on where you’re standing. I mean, the main character is a shapeshifter - I think it would be weirder if the ending was solid or definitive.

On Tuesday, Microsoft announced that it will indeed be skipping Windows 9 and jumping to Windows 10 as the name for its next operating system. No joke.

Company executives did not spell out the logic behind the numerical leap from the current version, Windows 8, except to say that the new version won’t just be an incremental improvement. I guess they figured Windows 8 was so criminally awful that any version called Windows 9 would be judged guilty by association. Either that or Windows 7 ate 9.

Rev Sekou kneeled between protesters and police and prayed, then was thrown into a police vehicle with blood smears all inside of it.

Life’s too short to pretend you don’t like abba

idonttakemycontactsout said: i appreciate your concern, but at my college we interact a great deal with autism speaks and support it. you shouldn't focus on what they're doing wrong, because none of it is terrible, but focus on what they are trying to do for people with all different levels of autism.

autisticfandomthings:

Things you apparently don’t consider terrible:

Posting a video of a mother talking about how she wanted to kill her child while that same child  was in the room listening. 

Supporting the eugenic abortion of autistic people.

Failing to condemn the murders of autistic children.

Supporting the Judge Rotenburg Center, which according the the UN, tortures autistic people.

It is terrible, only 3% of their budget goes towards services, there are no autistic people on their board, they literally support eugenics. They are doing absolutely nothing good. 

This is widely know withing the autistic community and they are pretty universally hated by autistic people. Because they are terrible. They only even bother pretending to care about little white boys.

Read that link. Read it.

And here is the resignation letter of the sole autistic person they had in an important (but still non board) position

Here’s a flyer by a major autism advocacy organisation on them

OR, if you still don’t give a fuck about what autistic people think or want, (which seems kind of obvious from the content of this ask) here are some links written by non autistic people.

Here’s a post from the CEO of one of the oldest charities in the US for intellectually and developmentally disabled people.

Here’s a post from a major autism parenting magazine

And here are some other posts

If you continue to support them now you are in possession of this information, then it is clear that you are not an ally to autistic people, you don’t want to help us, and are probably just doing your charity work for “oh look at me, I’m a good person” points.

If you support autism speaks, you are not supporting autistic people, you are hurting us. And you are doing it knowingly and consciously.

Please spread this, not enough people know.
