You sound like me, talking about all the empty promises doled out to people. So much cant, no action, little voice, no power. Hold institutions to account? , even? You are joking, right?

... I am frustrated by my powerlessness as a reviewer to hold institutions (and indeed, individual applicants) to account for the promises they make in proposals. It's so easy to promise training, support, equipment & resources but people have to fight to get these delivered.

He makes it sound like autistic people trick 'extreme NTs', particularly kind caring ones into loving us then when we've got them we become awful spouses He even states in the interview that divorce rates are low. So he knows what he says is not based on evidence

It's so sad to see a colleague infantilizing -and even ridiculing- autistic people Tony Attwood should feel ashamed by using his platform to talk like this about autistic people Here is the full transcript, thanks to

"Purple Tuesday" a new UK shop disabled access day. Not a charity event - it's led by a company, Purple Zest Limited, & endorsed by the DWP, curiously. That would be the DWP that has the power to request shop CCTV footage for alleged benefits fraud. Very interesting....

The women (in the example diagnostic interviews in the autism and girls modules by ) are much more articulate about their emotions than I was - I had no idea I was anxious at all. Don't expect autistic women to tell you that they deal with anxiety when they experience it.

"If a child was not autistic, would we use their hobby as a means to try to get them to do certain things? If not, we need to stop thinking it is okay to use an person’s hobby or interest […to] manipulate/fix/distinguish 'autistic behaviors'."

Talk done. Really hoping it went okay! Tried to fit 45 mins into 30 mins. Managed to include guinea pig, hedgehog and cat photos 👍

I am training on autism in women and girls. I want to describe the more subtle signs of autism etc but also need to explain that it is not just seen in women and that we mustn't erase non binary people. Is this title good? Any better suggestions?

My difficulty with type initiatives? Imagine a world where one day a year, stores make it possible for (say) women to shop, or (say) Black people. How grateful should those groups be, if that happened? I'd like access all year, like everyone else. Not difficult.

I'm so happy I think I might cry. We have raised the money. Only took 5 hours! Thank you everybody who donated. Is it rude to increase the target? Three more autistic activists have asked if they can be crowdfunded too. I don't know crowdfunding etiquette.

Now is the time of year to be feeding up hedgehogs ready for hibernation. Here are two photos of mine. I think they are a mother and one of her hoglets. Do not feed mealworms because they can disturb calcium/phosphorous homeostasis. Cat/dog food and a bowl of water are best!
