Une étude est en cours sur le camouflage et la santé mentale dans l'autisme
Il y a encore besoin de réponses de la part de personnes non autistes, en attente de diagnostic ou auto-diagnostiquées
La démarche de cette recherche va vraiment dans le sens des demandes de la communauté et Raven est un doctorant lui-même autiste, faisant attention à l'implication de personnes concernées à toutes les étapes de la recherche

electrods can only be used up to 20 times, and I can't pay for new ones as it's 20€ for 16 electrods (I have to use 4 each time) to be able to use my TENS as much as needed.
My meds don't help at all and I yell and cry out of pain a lot.
Any help is truly appreciated, even just a boost would mean a lot and save us.
Thank you so much for any support, sending all my love. 🖤

in completely unrelated news, here's a list of herbs that are easily and readily found that is absolutely NOT safe to take while pregnant in your first trimester. be careful as you do NOT want to take any of these while you are carrying an early pregnancy. doctors will not be able to find out what caused the miscarriage if you consume or use these so please be weary!

Si vous devez passer une échographie sur Metz, surtout si c'est au niveau du ventre, je vous en supplie pour votre sécurité n'allez pas au cabinet de la République !
Je suis complètement sous le choc, incapable de raconter ce qu'il s'est passé exactement, mais j'y ai subi des abus alors que je venais juste pour mon foie (qui n'est pas dans le caleçon, à ce que je sache...)
Prenez soin de vous
Boost très apprécié pour prévenir svp !
J'ai 4 pieds de framboisier jaune (variété remontante) à donner vers #nantes , ça intéresse quelqu'un ? Boosts OK :)
As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.
Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.
While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.
Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!

a sensitive take on the war
my Kurdish friends hold the same position anarchists do about Ukraine (resistance to Putin should be supported, this invasion unambiguously bad and unjustified, Ukraine goverment/NATO also bad but not the agressors in this case and not an excuse, we stand with the people not with nation-states, do materially support the resistance). But they're also pretty bitter at the level of global mobilisation that appears when a dictator does atrocities to a white European country. They don't think it's wrong to mobilise, but just like... Assad and Erdogan have been shelling their hospitals for years, where was all the support?
I've seen Palestinians and Afghans and Black ppl online with similar complaints. And I felt taken a bit aback by this, it feels like ok this isn't the time to complain about the *support*, people are being bombed, let's not detract from that; but then I thought—yeah, if I had family or friends in those areas, I'd also feel bitter that Germany was so reluctant to send weapons to Ukraine but doesn't think twice of arming the entirety of the Turkish military, who everybody knows does the same sorta stuff as Putin does, every day for years. In fact Erdogan has shelled three civilian villages *today*, plus a drone strike; a civilian minibus was targeted last Thursday, water lines were closed in the peak of COVID etc. etc. And this is NATO doing it. (Germany also arms Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Qatar; German weapons have been found with Mexican state-backed militias, though not officially).
Right now we should stop Putin's onslaught, of course. All this momentum of global support is a *good* thing in the face of horrible war crimes. Nobody wants less support for the Ukrainian resistance, + all of us are engaged on helping it anyway we can, fundraising and volunteering and so on. It's just, it would be nice to also show up against other wars of aggression from now on? Putin demonstrates what happens when one lets imperial powers fester. It's good to keep an eye out for the power grabs; don't let the right to life and peace of Ukrainian people, the bravery of Ukrainian people against their genocidal invaders, be appropriated by two-faced politicians who will happily finance similar atrocities on brown people elsewhere.
Let's build an internationalism that doesn't stand by passively to any war of agression, not in Ukraine, not elsewhere.

Do not install anything from Nvidia's website and disable GeForce Experience updates until Nvidia lets everyone know that things are back under control.

👾 thinking about autism and humanity (this applies to other disabled people but I think in a unique way to autistics
neurotypicals are quick to dehumanize us whenever it helps them control us (guardianship and revocation of fundamental rights, loss of control over our bodies, economic oppression like sheltered workshops and subminimum wages “they don’t need as much money,” a blind eye turned to the disabled prison population)
then they are quick to rehumanize us when it is convenient for them, when it helps them exploit us in other ways (“charities” making us the center of publicity campaigns, pretending to be defend us while exploiting us for profit, “person-first” language enforced over our own preference)
and if we proclaim ourselves to be human we are denied it. we are culturally painted as the poster-child of the uncanny valley. fiction portrays nonhuman but human-adjacent characters like aliens and androids by autistic-coding them, whether they realize it or not. famous people who are joked about being robots or aliens are usually autistic. this is very common
but when autistics want to embrace inhumanity we are also denied that! even the simplest things like using it/its are at best grudgingly accepted and always questioned. NTs say “you have to be this way and do these things because that is what it means to be human,” and if we say “then I don’t want to be that,” they say “no, you have to, you’re human,” they will not just come out and say it’s not okay for us to be autistic
no matter which way we want it we cannot have it, it is and has always been about control. when autistics embrace ourselves, whether it means demanding our humanity or refusing it, we are empowered! taking control of this narrative is part of our liberation
I greatly admire autistics who live authentically, true to themselves. I’ve become a lot more myself since returning from being a subroutine and becoming system admin again
