I already loved this
BUT THEN I REALIZED IT’S KRISTEN BELL
[screenshot of Facebook post by someone called Miranda. The post says: “Even if I humor anti-vaccine activists and for a second believe that vaccines cause autism in 0.01% of children they’re administered to (spoiler alert: vaccines don’t cause autism), I am still deeply disturbed that these people are more afraid of people with disabilities than they are of fatal, painful, and endemic diseases. If cognitive disabilities are more threatening to you than children never getting to grow up because polio makes a comeback, you have priorities to reevaluate my friend. Shame on you for brainwashing mothers an families into believing that autism is the absolute worst thing that can happen to a person.]
Shout-out to autistic women and girls who were trained into people-pleasing social skills, and whose practiced scripts and social stories are now treated less as acquired social training and more as evidence of shallow “fake”ness, especially by proudly-quirky allistic introverts who were never forced to bother with all of that.
Shout-out to autistic women and girls who endure bullying as children for their poor social skills, move heaven and earth to get “better” ones, and then have to deal with bullying from NT people for being a “fake, shallow bitch.”
Shout-out to autistic women and girls whose socialization never allowed them to present as autistic in the same way their brothers and male classmates did, and whose level of impairment never allowed them to be left alone like those selfsame bookish, introverted allistics. To the autistic women and girls who now have to field every uninformed allistic comment about how “you totally don’t SEEM autistic” because they’re not “quirky” because they’ve been trained out of their strangeness in ways that quirky allistics will never understand.
Shout-out to all the autistic women and girls fucked with in this way. And fuck social skills training for the new generation of autistic women and girls. Seriously fuck it very much.

Le French Friday sur Tumblr c’est sacré
if anyone remembers the story that was making rounds a while back about a 19 year old discovering the solution to cleaning up the pacific garbage patch, that project launched a fundraider which now has 7 days to reach it’s goal.
3 days now, and it’s at 99%. go go go! this is gonna be a super cool experiment, and even if it doesn’t entirely work as designed, it’ll be the basis for improvements that will. it is SO worth funding!
I just donated!! Let’s DO THIS!!!!

welcome to switzerland

I can’t find sources about this
I was looking, and couldn’t either. The closest I could find quickly in English was this one near us:
That one didn’t actually go inside the station, and those definitely were not British transport cops in the photo.
Now I am very curious. :)
I have found some stuff about swans in stations in Switzerland, but none had this pic:
