Neurodiversity by Atuin Neurodiversity by Atuin
Stamp for awareness of the autistic spectrum "disorders" and support of those who fall within that spectrum. We are people too who don't necessarily want a cure, because this is who we are - people with a different wiring. Sometimes things are a lot harder, but I know I personally would not want to change who I was if I could.

I think the black background works the best of the ones I tried.

Soon, we'll all be equal
Or maybe not
Maybe it'll get worse for us
Maybe we'll all have to be cured
But, we can only hope for the best

Yes! I have Aspergers and Autism...being a girl with that is kind of rare. I was taught to improve on social skills...but when it got between my originality, I knew something had to change...and it wasn't I want to be myself more. Great stamp!

I have high-functioning autism, and I agree to this, because my autism, even if I have highs and lows in my life, it is still a part of me :)

My family some times jokes about other people whom I don't understand...
"That's so neurotypical of them..." (don't know if spelled right)

I heard an ad. on the radio recently and they were speaking of it like it was CANCER... It made me feel horrible. I like who I am. I see nothing wrong with it... if people look at me weird, too bad! This is who I am and they have to deal with it.

I have a friend with HFA and have been talking to someone with an autism service dog. I also personally fit into the spectrum weirdly, but...if I had the choice to medicate my problems away I still wouldn't, even knowing I almost failed out of a specialized high school because of them.

I'm in ESE math, I got of the others after 9th, which made me so happy! I'm freaked out about going into algebra 2.. What I hate about ESE (actually any person who knows you have something), they treat you like a moron and over explain things. And if you try to stop to say, "I get it"
THEY YELL AT YOU! They always assume you don't get it, too..

Yay! You're so right about it. It really irritates me when they call it a disability, because just because I have bad social skills, get distracted easy, sensitive to light and sound, and am spacey all the time, does not make me a retard. If I take my time, I'm in the top of my classes. Your view on this surprised me cause my sis and I feel the same way!! Thank you for making this stamp! I really don't see how they can "cure" a person individually. I think the people who want everyone to conform just wants to "cure" society by getting rid of us people who are strange to them. Free thinkers and the like. Thanks again!!! :heart: :blowkiss:

People are people, they will have problems and will be better at other things, if we have something different about us in a trackable manor, it doesn't make it a bad thing - even if it does make it harder for us to fit into the stereotype.

:) thanks for the comment.
