Let's imagine you hate a few things. Like really don't like them. Can't do them. Can't stand them at a fundamental level. Let's imagine, for sake of argument, you hate: 🔹Broccoli 🔹Dancing 🔹Horror movies. /1

Being is a bit like being a secret agent. You’re surrounded by people who assume you perceive like them, think like them and react like them. They have no idea how different our lives are from theirs. We exist in another dimension. Incognito in theirs.

Forcing an child to make eye contact when they don't want to is a form of abuse. I would defend this position on that very strongly, the more I think about it.

Actually, that should be Rule #1: “NEVER LIE to an .” You will eventually be found out and probably never forgiven.

Let me give you an example. children in school famously find the authority of teachers hard to adapt to. Not because they're evil little ragamuffins, as some teachers would have it, but because their natural state is to assume equanimity. /5

Thus, if someone says 'the Cochrane review found only low quality evidence', for sure it means exactly that. That research was so poorly done, they haven't proved a thing. Ask about Cochrane Review evidence when getting a therapy or treatment for your child.

I've discussed before, in one of these endless threads I do, how people often struggle to know how to act around authority figures. Actually, that's not true - we don't seem to *care* how we act around authority. /3

So another example: an person meets their company's CEO. They know who they are, but they greet them as an equal. They say hi. They crack a Chandler-esque joke. They are relaxed and unfazed by the massive authority that is shrinking their peers down. /11

By this point my teacher followers are wincing in pain as our main tool is automatically accepted authority. But what can I say? people are different! /7

So when presented with an authority figure, people seek out what makes us the same and in doing so obliterates the arbitrary (to us at least) difference of their 'authority'. We automatically seek to be on a level with *everyone* we meet. /9

These 2 men at in kept talking to my son who was locked in the car. They kept smiling & asking him to push the "open" button. My son didn't understand. I panicked. They kept trying, and then- click, open! Not all heroes where capes! 🦸🏾‍♂️🦸🏾‍♂️

Autism in academia. A thread. people often have intense interests. These can quite quickly become areas of specialism & expertise. Presumably, universities would have high numbers of autistic people, surely? /1
