The advice wasn‘t about telling a person in an existential crisis that you don‘t have capacity right now. It was about times when the issue isn‘t that pressing. Not emergencies. Anyways. Different brains exist. Maybe don‘t shit on people for how they were born.

PS: It hurts to hear over and over again that you don‘t fit into this world. I know nobody wants to hear my woes. The beauty is: you can just scroll on. Offline I just stay silent because I don‘t want to burden anyone and don‘t know how to talk about stuff „appropriately“.

But don‘t worry, I‘m not burdening anyone with my „inhuman“ responses...I don‘t have friends to hurt because nobody wants to be around my disgusting autistic self anyways. So y‘all are safe from me. 🖕🏻 (Except my husband, who learned to understand my brain, and loves me as I am)

People who don‘t have processing problems really need to understand that not everyones brain works like theirs. I actually can‘t always process speech. This means I actually can‘t reply what I want to reply. Or I can‘t understand anything you’re saying. Scripts are crucial!

I need a script for these situations precisely because I care! I am incapable of thinking of something appropriate to say spontaneously. My processing doesn‘t work that fast, especially not in a situation loaded with stress and anxiety about wanting to help someone in crisis!

The replies here are why I can‘t trust people. I‘m . I communicate differently. I need scripts for social interaction. I get punished for how I was born with people claiming I‘m „sociopathic“, „psychopathic“, „robotic“, „inhumane“. I‘m not.

I don‘t think that is going to happen, because it has way too much non-autistic, abled support...so I’m campaigning for something I think is actually possible.

PS: This thread was to highlight an existing issue that doesn’t get talked about enough - not a request for advice. If I need advice on specific items, I‘ll ask for it here as I have in the past with reusable menstrual pads which sadly turned out too expensive for me.

They are handmade which explains everything...and shows that we need mass produced options!

Yes, glass is definitely a great option for anything kitchen/food/storage. Though it's not THAT easy to find completely plastic free options that are leak proof, freezer ready, and plastic free! I found a great storage glass retailer online for this with affordable options.

In short: Don‘t tell poor and/or disabled people that they „should just“ anything, ever. Seriously, don‘t. We need cheap, accesible environmentalism folks. Urgently.

If you want to buy , ethically you need tons of time & ability to research every item. I researched for about two weeks until I knew everything that SHOULDN‘T be in my soap, what SHOULD be in it, and which manufacturers produce ethically...for soap y‘all.

And this whole ordeal has to be considered for EVERY item you buy. Good luck finding a soap that contains no palm oil, no aluminium, no artificial scents, preservatives, no plastic packaging etc...and costs less than $5/200g. Regular soap costs $0.50/200g. You poor? Too bad!

If I want to go , it gets even harder. plus for example means buying almost solely raw food ingredients and cooking everything from scratch. That‘s not possible for me, nor is it for many other people. The same goes for .

Lots of alternatives also aren‘t just MUCH more expensive, they also require SIGNIFICANTLY more time and labor to use in every day life. Reusable items are great for the environment! But they need to be washed and taken care of. Disabled people often can‘t do that.

An example - panty liners: Regular single use panty liners = $0.04/piece. 100% organic cotton single use panty liners = $0.50/piece. 100% organic cotton reusable panty liners = $9,90/piece. I use 1-2 liners/day. I can‘t wash daily so I need at least 6 reusable ones. Yeah...

If you are disabled you also might not be able to go out to shop, which causes the same problem as mentioned before: you have to shop online with the mentioned problems. If you are disabled you‘re also more likely to be poor of course so...good luck.

If you live in a small city you likely won’t find most plastic free items in stores. Which means you need to support harmful large online retailers to get „affordable“ items - or shop at small ethical ones and pay more...again. If you can pay more, that is. Also: shipping.

Most alternatives of necessary, common every day items cost multiple times what the plastic versions cost. Multiple times, not just double. If you want to take ethical, ecological production, into account - get ready to pay. Or straight up fail to find a product.
