Sharing: getting rid of us won’t keep you safe: #actuallyautistic rage, MIT, and eugenics

I know, I know – I beat the MIT autism research center topic to death yesterday, but this was too obscenely (in a good way) downright awesome not to share. This is a must-read. Seriously. I mean, with passages such as, “you think that (if) you get rid of it (autism), the problem goes away: one more step towards a safe, comfortable utopia. You need to realize how unstable this really is, though…”, who COULDN’T keep reading?? Awesome writing right there 🙂

a sunny momentum

In the second installment of Sophia Yells At Universities On Social Media: MIT!

I’m not going to go overly into detail about why this article shows that MIT’s new 20 million dollar autism centre is a thinly-disguised eugenics party, mostly because I’ve already done so here on Facebook. (Also not gonna talk about that patronising jerk that responded to me there because honestly fuck that guy.)

What I’m gonna say is this:

  1. Hi! This is your friend, but I cannot say my name because I had to take down my blog of poems due to the Narcissist finding my page, and stalking me. I am the one who nominated your beautiful blog for One Lovely Blog Award ❤️. Please don’t say my name, though! I opened up another blog, and you can follow me there if you wish, but it’s brand new, and barely anything there..lol. My middle name is: Claudia. I use my middle name, now. Hugs! Miss you!

    1. Thank you thank you for reaching out to me, luv! Would you like me to edit the Lovely Blog Award post (which mentions your name and links to your old site) so that the Narcissist can’t find you through here? It sounds like they’ll stop at nothing! 😱💔💐💐

      1. Hmm, I did not think of that… Yes, you can do that because I will be writing more poems, again, and also reposting some of my previous ones from past blog using my middle name only. You’re so sweet ❤️ Thank you!

    2. Done! 😊❤️ I’m sorry that it had taken me much longer to do it than I had wanted! But I wanted to let you know that the coast is clear now 😘 I used your new name and linked to your current blog instead. Is that ok? 💞💞
