I used to do logic puzzles when I was a kid! My brain just loves this stuff, and rhetoric is like finding words for all the things that I’ve known are things but not sure what they are!

Trans men are men. That’s the part that their logic depends on but that they won’t say out loud.

I’m depending. Eye contact for high emotions stuff, less eye contact for high new information/processing stuff.

And he didn’t mind at all. And yes! That dude who sat like 6 rows back at my 5 o’clock. He had good questions. 😂

I do this too. I had a history teacher in grade 12 who used caught on and started working it right into the lecture.

Works up to age 14 as long as you’ve known them before! Otherwise... age 11-ish.

When I’m teaching and this happens I start making up bad answers out loud.

I call us “brain cousins” but we’re probably like cousins who grow up next door to each other and are basically siblings if not actually siblings? 😂

Hey, how's this for autism 'awareness' month: some percentage of you who are reading this tweet are and aren't aware of it. I'm going to post a bunch of questions I wish I had been asked in this context, years ago. This is not diagnosis! But it's instructive.

I went to university at 27 and it took me a while to figure out that people were just not gonna talk 😂

That said, I had the best conversation about Waiting for Godot with my theatre history prof back in acting school, and I hope everyone else in the room enjoyed it as much as I did cause I learned a lot. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I sit near the front so I don’t get distracted, I’ve worked out a pretty good make eye contact with prof then give head nod/half hand wave that signals “I can talk if you need me.” 😂

And y’all, I’m in media and communications. I’m talking questions like “who here uses twitter?” ... “Two people? Two people use twitter? This is a social media class.” “Can you repeat the question?”

I can’t stand that awkward silence when a prof asks something and NOBODY answers. Like, I can feel it in my body. It’s active silence, like when a joke bombs, but people aren’t doing it because of bad jokes. They’re doing it for... I dunno... REASONS.

In low-participation classes I actually distract myself a bit because otherwise I will just end up in a dialogue with the prof and I feel like a jerk. 😂

They have an office in Calgary and bragged about having people on the ground in Red Deer, among other places. They’re definitely there. They send supervisors, materials, training resources to smaller groups/locations.
