Unhealed trauma manifests as projection, as it's your minds way of trying to get you to SEE YOUR WOUNDS, so that you may HEAL them. When unhealed, and you point the finger at someone else, three are pointing BACK AT YOU. #EmpowermentCoach #ActuallyAutistic #IntersectionalAutist

(5/5) Intersectional educ is some of the MOST PAINFUL work one can do. Harm reduction is PAYING MARGINALIZED PEOPLE FOR OUR LABOR. Supporting our content via ENGAGMENT. MUTUAL AID/REPARATIONS. REFER us to PAID opportunities. Speak our names to others. BUY our classes/merch. Etc.

(4/5) 3. while expected/DEMANDED to EDUCATE, give FREE LABOR to oppressors, to teach why their foot on our neck is wrong, having to continually retraumatize ourselves in the HOPES that some kind of harm reduction will result, which is literally what keeps many of us sane.

(3/5) 2. GASLIT/DENIED our LIVED EXPERIENCES/INVALIDATED: because the very nature of privilege shields them from sharing in our reality, while being conditioned that their foot on our neck is AS IT SHOULD BE, so we are both demeaned to liars & dehumanized ...

2/5 To add to that pain, when we speak up in anger at the people who have their foot on our necks, we are 1. TONE POLICED: told to be KINDER with our expression of anger/PAIN, DEMANDED to prioritize their EGO over HARM they are inflicting.

1/5 To exist in this capitalistic dystopia, the more marginalized one is, the more we are FORCED to exist BEYOND OUR CAPACITY. The more intersections of our identity, the further we have to push beyond our limits which is CONSISTENT COMPOUNDED TRAUMA + intergenerational trauma.

1/ 2 Bodily autonomy is a basic human right for ALL HUMANS. If u're outraged at the overturning of #RoeVsWade bc it negates bodily autonomy, then u should feel the same about: 1. trans people's lack of access to gender affirming medical care ... #ActuallyAutistic #trans

The general inability for people to pay their bills in advance as well as late fees, are both inherently ableist and classically capitalistic/predatory. #ActuallyAutistic #AuDHD #neurodivergent

Not everything that existed pre-colonization was perfect nor does it ALL need to exist today. Yes some main principles of African/Indigenous peoples would benefit us now but blind allegiance w/out critical thinking births toxicity. It's time for NEWNESS. #decolonize with PURPOSE.

Let's speak to the systems that allow animals to continue to be mistreated. How systemic oppression/capitalism/poverty & the colonizer norm to have to assert dominance over other living things plays a significant role in animal abuse. #ActuallyAutistic #decolonize #animals

4. Emotions are meant to be FELT. Allowing yourself to feel your emotions is an act of DECOLONIZATION/REBELLION. Teaching your children to do the same is an act of REVOLUTION. #ActuallyAutistic #IntersectionalAutist #decolonize

3. Oppressive, superficial, colonizer culture has demonized emotions especially those PERCEIVED as negative. Black emotions are aggressive = ra-cism. Men shouldn't feel vulnerability = toxic masculinity. Women emotions are "hyper/irrational, etc" = Misogyny etc. #ActuallyAutistic

2. Emotions are neither good nor bad, that is determined by perception, & ACTION/REACTION to them. They are simply facts/info like Math or communication like languages. Feelings are stories that can inspire neg or pos RESPONSES. #ActuallyAutistic
