>>>>> “If autism isn’t caused by environmental factors and is natural why didn’t we ever see it in the past?”

>>>>> We did, except it wasn’t called autism [ . . . ]

>>>> [ . . . ] “little Jonathan doesn’t talk but does a good job herding the sheep, contributes to the community in his own way, and is, all around, a decent guy.” [ . . . ]

>>> [ . . . ] The Myth of the Changeling child, a human baby apparently replaced at a young age by a toddler who “suddenly” acts “strange and fey” is an almost *textbook* depiction of autistic children. [ . . . ]

>> I think it’s worth noting that many like me, who are diagnosed with ASD now, would probably have been seen as just a bit odd in centuries past. [ . . . ]

>> [ . . . ] If I went back in time and lived on a farm somewhere, would anyone even notice there was anything odd about me? No police sirens, no crowded streets that go on for miles and miles, no flickery electric lights. Working on a farm has a clear routine. I’d be a badass at spinning cloth or churning butter because I find endless repetition soothing rather than boring.

>> [ . . . ] What I’m saying is that disability exists in the context of the environment. Our environment isn’t making people autistic in the sense of some chemical causing brain damage. But we have created a modern environment which is hostile to autistic people in many ways, which effectively makes us more disabled. [ . . . ]

Hey y'all, I have sensory issues around most deodorant but live in the Deep South and am tired of fearing going outside. Anyone else with similar issues know of good brands in the US? Preferably stuff with minimal scent or floral scents.


had to add a new VPS to accomplish that though, so eventually it'd be nice to copy all this over to the old vps, since it's still on the old Hetzner billing plan and would save me 80 cents a month

Small server part of the infrastructure. Registration is approval-based, and will probably only accept people I know elsewhere or with good motivation.
