social media etiquette Show more
As a rule, I try not to reshare stuff on social media that's just a screencap off of another social media site (e.g. tweets on tumblr, tumblr posts on facebook), especially if a) the original author isn't attributed, or b) a transcription of the screencapped text isn't included.
I know I shouldn't get as annoyed by this practice as I am, but ugh.
Content isn't "free" when there are ads. The longer I work in advertising, the more this idea that content w/ads is "Free" bothers me. It's not free at all. You're paying for it with your time and attention to sponsored content, and how that content then drives you to take actions. It's not "free."
The fifth annual Gender Census is now open until 1st March 2018!
It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's pretty short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business, and self-advocacy.

Me: I think I'm autistic.
Autistic people: Yep, you totally are.
Allistic people: Don't worry, those weird things you do are totally normal, and you're so high-functioning! I know someone who works with real autistic people and you're definitely not that. You don't want to be one of those people who says they're autistic because it's trendy, do you? Oh, but I'm also weirdly uncomfortable around you for reasons I can't and won't explain.
I got a new shirt and it looks so cool but it's too small for me (in the largest size available) and the material isn't very breathable so I sweat buckets in it, ugh.
Now I have to deal with low-key sensory hell until I go home. Why must my sensory issues thwart hip fashion choices, whyyyyyyy
