My blogversary is 30th December, so these posts always end up basically being New Year posts. To that end, I’ve made my 2015 WordPress report public; you can see it here. The first thing I noticed about this is that recent posts have been few and far between! Final year of university is now officially a thing, and will become even more of a thing over the next six months, so I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d ideally like and I’ll probably disappear altogether as exams approach, but hopefully I’ll at least vaguely keep the blog ticking over for 2016.
I’ve noticed that as New Year approaches, a few people have linked back to some of the posts they’ve made over 2015, so in case anyone reading this happens to be really, really bored:
- A Headcanon Named Autism: In defence of finding our own representation – I’ve really enjoyed reading the comments on this post, with lots of other people sharing their autistic headcanons!
- The Illusion of “Neutral” – Why “can’t we reach a compromise” is not an option when it comes to issues of oppression
- Scary Thoughts I Had In A Group For Autistic Women – Fairly self-explanatory, ableism and sexism are both very scary things!
- Functioning Labels 101: What’s The Big Deal? – On the various problems with imposing functioning labels on autistic people, and what to say instead
- You Don’t Know What It’s Like – In which I get very frustrated at a weird mixture of ableism, inaccessibility, and a social culture that often seems to revolve entirely around alcohol
A huge huge huge thank you to everyone who’s read/liked/commented on/shared/etc my posts – this started out as me rambling into a digital void when I couldn’t face IRL confrontation, and the idea that other actual human beings pay attention to said rambling is still a very odd concept to me.
Happy New Year everyone!
