"There’s a whole thing about it where you’re like, a little kid, because you actually just have to remember that cowboys vs. indians game you played when you were little, and there was something about just being imaginative to go there and allow yourself to go there. I gained a new appreciation for a lot of these actors who do a lot of action movies. There’s a reason why Tom Cruise is good at what he does in every movie and why he does his own stunts… it’s not the easiest thing, to kind of pick up a gun and shoot and look cool and not blink because you’re firing these loud noises, it’s a whole art in itself."

imagine bucky and steve taking shots of like 100 proof vodka and trying to get DRUNK and steve is totally unaffected but after the 20th shot or something bucky is drunk as fuck and he looks at steve really seriously (while swaying slightly in his chair) and steve is kind of nervous because bucky hasn’t looked at him this intently since before the war when steve came home with two broken ribs and bucky just stared at him for five minutes before giving him the longest lecture of his entire life so yeah steve is kinda nervous. finally bucky rubs his hand over his face, sighs and says, “steve, i fucking hate it when you wear khakis” and steve laughs so hard he can’t breathe

So, was almost late to work. Shortly after I went to bed, had a nightmare that my alarm had gone off, I got up, got dressed, and when I looked at my bed again, it was covered in snakes.

I don’t deal well with snakes.

So, my insane little brain figured if I ignored my alarm clock going off in real-time, and kept my head under Austin, I’d not find my bed full of snakes.

So, this has been bugging me. About a month ago, I was in town shopping, when a service dog all but tackled me, pressing up against my leg, tail wagging, panting, nosing my hand for attention. He was wearing his service vest, and I tried to ignore him, like I’ve always done with working dogs, but he was insistent. His handler was a the far end of the counter, and said “He’s off duty, just wants to say hi.” I explained that I wasn’t comfortable interacting with a service dog still wearing their gear, and he got very huffy about it.

I’ve always been warned to ignore a working dog (not just service dogs, but military and K9 enforcement and others) while their gear is on, because that’s how the dog differentiates between working and not. I’ve seen people grab a working dog in gear, petting them and cooing, while the handler is trying to work with the dog. And yes, I’m aware that not all working dogs wear gear, but was I wrong in not wanting to interact with him? If he had been out of gear, I would have happily pet all over him, it’s not that I’m against dogs. I’m just not sure how else to have handled that?

(Image description: A partial screenshot of a blog post. The title reads “How I reduced screaming and verbal stimming in my child with autism”, and below that is a colour photograph of a hand holding a rectangular plastic “clicker” device.)I think I may have mentioned this blog post, and the sadness and confusion I felt when I came across it, in one of my videos. This screenshot is from the blog of an “autism parent”. Yes, that is a clicker. Yes, she is encouraging the use of animal training methods on Autistic children. Yes, she considers any kind of vocal stimming, not just screaming, to be a “bad behaviour”. To top it all off, her blog banner reads, “Discovering SOLUTIONS to the Everyday Problems of Living with AUTISM”. Here is an excerpt from her tutorial on how to train your disabled child like a dog to have a “Quiet Mouth”:

Third, I sat back and watched my child. Since he was making bad noises, I decided to reinforce Quiet Mouth (i.e., lips together, no sound). Whenever he had a split second of Quiet Mouth, I immediately tagged (made a click-sound with the device) and handed over a treat. Every time his mouth was Quiet, I tagged (clicked) and treated. Soon there was much more Quiet Mouth behavior. When doing this it is important to ignore and pay no attention to vocal stims or screaming. Do not look at the child, do not speak to him/her or explain. Just say nothing, and immediately tag and treat as soon as there is even a split second of Quiet Mouth. You can also tag and treat a child for any appropriate vocalizations. If he/she says a nice word, or makes an appropriate comment, then tag and reinforce that. Your goal is to increase Quiet Mouth and appropriate vocalizations.

And sadly, as bad as this attitude and treatment of Autistic children is, this is a relatively tame example when compared to the other unethical treatments, therapies, and methods of discipline that Autistic children are being subjected to every day (all in the name of making them appear less obviously Autistic). This is why we need Autism Acceptance Month and not the fear-mongering, negative, misinformed “awareness” that Autism Speaks and its allies are pumping out this April.
We need acceptance because Autistic children should be loved and accepted wholly and completely for who they are, not hurt and mistreated in their parent’s frantic search for a “cure”. Because Autistic people deserve to be treated with respect and listened to, not silenced and forced or coerced to conform to an ableist, non-disabled ideal. Because Autistic children need accommodation and understanding to live healthy, happy lives, not sketchy “treatments” and intensive, soul-crushing “therapies” to try to make them appear more neurotypical and less Autistic.

This is so upsetting it made me cry.
This is why we need acceptance, we are treated like animals. No thought given to why their child might be making those noises, just that it’s an annoyance to be eradicated. What if the child was trying to communicate something important???

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT

I had about a dozen starts of things to say, but it really just comes down to WHAT SORT OF FRESH SHIT IS THIS?that is not how you treat a human being.
