so apparently glee just went on hiatus for 8 months and it’s ending next
year and i still haven’t watched past 5x01 and i’m kind of going
light-headed and upset just thinking about it being gone and i don’t even
know why, i’ve been obssessed with fandoms and pairing before and moved on
and i don’t even love the show all that much (i like it, for sure, but what
i fell in love with was the fandom) but it’s different this time, i’ve
never actually been &;involved&; in the fandom before, not beyond lurking and
reading all the things, and it feels like klaine and bb!kinksters are a
part of me and it’s like, but what will i do when that’s gone? because the
show will end, and the fandom will fall apart (we’ve already lost so many),
and then ????

i’ve had OTPs before but never for this long, never this intensely, and i
don’t even know what it is about them that clicked for me but it did and i
love reading fics about them and i love writing about them and thinking
about them and creating whole worlds around them

and i love all of the people i &;actually&; talk to!! like i SOCIALIZE and
TALK and guys you don’t understand outside of fandom i talk to pretty much
kate and until about six months ago that was about it aside from
occasionally this one other friend. now i have like 3 or 4 RL friends i
talk to on a semi-regular basis which i think shows i have grown as a
person, but i love the glee fandom and my fandom friends and i don ‘t want
to lose you

and thinking about losing all of you and klaine all at the same time kind
of terrifies me because who even am i without all of this???

i know, i know. i need therapy.

i fucking hate it though. they always do this &;thing&; with their eyes.
every single therapist i’ve ever been to. every. single. one.

it creeps me the fuck out.

asexualthings:

Asexuality is an orientation in which a person does not experience sexual attraction to any sex and/or gender. They do not feel an intrinsic desire to make sex a part of their relationships with other people. However they may still be able to experience other types of attraction, and desire relationships with other people.

“If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also”
-

Matt 5:39

This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.

THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you. 

(via guardianrock)

I can attest to the original poster’s comments. A few years back I took an intensive seminar on faith-based progressive activism, and we spent an entire unit discussing how many of Jesus’ instructions and stories were performative protests designed to shed light on and ridicule the oppressions of that time period as a way to emphasize the absurdity of the social hierarchy and give people the will and motivation to make changes for a more free and equal society.

For example, the next verse (Matthew 5:40) states “And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.” In that time period, men traditionally wore a shirt and a coat-like garment as their daily wear. To sue someone for their shirt was to put them in their place - suing was generally only performed to take care of outstanding debts, and to be sued for one’s shirt meant that the person was so destitute the only valuable thing they could repay with was their own clothing. However, many cultures at that time (including Hebrew peoples) had prohibitions bordering on taboo against public nudity, so for a sued man to surrender both his shirt and his coat was to turn the system on its head and symbolically state, in a very public forum, that “I have no money with which to repay this person, but they are so insistent on taking advantage of my poverty that I am leaving this hearing buck-ass naked. His greed is the cause of a shameful public spectacle.”

All of a sudden an action of power (suing someone for their shirt) becomes a powerful symbol of subversion and mockery, as the suing patron either accepts the coat (and therefore full responsibility as the cause of the other man’s shameful display) or desperately chases the protester around trying to return his clothes to him, making a fool of himself in front of his peers and the entire gathered community.

Additionally, the next verse (Matthew 5:41; “If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.”) was a big middle finger to the Romans who had taken over Judea and were not seen as legitimate authority by the majority of the population there. Roman law stated that a centurion on the march could require a Jew (and possibly other civilians as well, although I don’t remember explicitly) to carry his pack at any time and for any reason for one mile along the road (and because of the importance of the Roman highway system in maintaining rule over the expansive empire, the roads tended to be very well ordered and marked), however hecould not require any service beyond the next mile marker. For a Jewish civilian to carry a centurion’s pack for an entire second mile was a way to subvert the authority of the occupying forces. If the civilian wouldn’t give the pack back at the end of the first mile, the centurion would either have to forcibly take it back or report the civilian to his commanding officer (both of which would result in discipline being taken against the soldier for breaking Roman law) or wait until the civilian volunteered to return the pack, giving the Judean native implicit power over the occupying Roman and completely subverting the power structure of the Empire. Can you imagine how demoralizing that must have been for the highly ordered Roman armies that patrolled the region?

Jesus was a pacifist, but his teachings were in no way passive. There’s a reason he was practically considered a terrorist by the reigning powers, and it wasn’t because he healed the sick and fed the hungry.

After looking at a lot of the criticisms of the proposed DSM5 criteria, I’ve been thinking about what potential criteria would look like if they were written with the perspective of someone autistic in mind—meaning looking at the underlying differences, not behavioural ones. These are what I’ve come up with so far. I would love to be able to refine and validate these/something built off of these some time in the future to replace the crap being put out in DSM5.

A. Differences in perception (at least 3)

Sensory defensiveness (ie, complaints or avoidance of any of the following: loud noises or places, bright lights, textures (food or object/clothing), tastes, smells, touch)

Sensory seeking (ie, stims or stimming behaviour such as rocking, flapping, finger flicking, hair twirling, spinning objects, etc or actively desiring any of the following: deep pressure or touch, vestibular sensation [swings, spinning in any context, etc], specific smells, tastes, or textures)

Auditory processing difficulties

Unusual, awkward, or delayed motor skills, or asymmetry between gross and fine motor skills (ie, clumsy but with strong fine motor skills, good gross motor skills with poor hand-writing or table skills)

A reduced or lack of conscious awareness and/or use of allistic (not autistic) nonverbal behaviour and communication such as facial expression, gesture, and posture.

This criterion should not exclude persons who have learnt to read or otherwise comprehend nonverbal behaviour by rote learning, particularly adults. Intentional learning to overcome an inherent difficulty in comprehension is supportive of this criterion. It should also not exclude persons who have been taught to use nonverbals to be less visibly different. In such cases, internal report of difficulty should take precedence over apparent behaviour.

B. Differences in cognition (at least 3, one of which must be 1 or 2)

Difficulty in beginning or ending (at least 1):

Perseverative thoughts or behaviours  

Needing prompts (visual, verbal, hand-over-hand, etc) to begin or finish a task

Difficulties planning complex activities

Catatonia

Difficulty switching between activities

Lack of apparent startle response

Difficulty in using language (at least 1):

Problems with pronoun use that are developmentally inappropriate

A reduced or lack of awareness of tone in self (ie, speaks in a monotone, childish, or otherwise unusual manner) and/or others (ie, does not perceive sarcasm or follow implied prompts, responds to rhetorical statements and questions in earnest)

A reduced or lack of awareness of volume (ie, speaks too loud or too quietly for the situation)

No functional language use

Echolalia

Mutism in some or all situations

At least one special interest in a topic that is unusual for any combination of intensity (ie, does not want to learn/talk about anything else, collects all information about the topic) or subject matter (ie, unusual, obscure, or not considered age appropriate). Topics may be age appropriate and/or common (such as a popular television show or book), but the intensity of interest and/or specific behaviour (such as collecting or organising information as the primary focus) should be taken into account.

Asymmetry of cognitive skills

Talents in pattern recognition, including music, mathematics, specific language structures, puzzles, and art.

A tendency to focus on details instead of the broader picture, across contexts.

C. These differences cause impairment and/or distress in at least one context (ie, school, work, home), which may be variable over time.D. Symptoms should be present in early childhood, but may not be noticable until social demands outpace compensatory skills, at any age 

I’m not sure if requiring it to be distressing is really necessary? I mean, that’s standard language for mental illness, but autism isn’t a disease.

Other than that, these look very solid (If this was going into the DSM, I’d expect them to be further fine-tuned by whatever fine-tuning process is used to fine-tune diagnostic criteria, but, yeah)

B4 could use some examples, I think

I think that’s things like, say, being really good at learning facts but not being able to write at an age-appropriate level? Or being an amazing writer with unaccounted-for discalculia, or things like that.
