An inalienable fact about Autistics is that we tend to struggle at life more than the average neurotypical. This is particularly true of female Autistics, who face greater barriers to get diagnosed, and find it harder to ger support when they are. It doesn't particularly help that common co-morbids of Autism are the Trauma Twins: Anxiety and Depression. As such, on the occasion that Autistic people find themselves succeeding, we promptly find ourselves taking up arms against Imposter Syndrome.Natasja RosePublished a day ago in Humans
Angela Bassett Is Allowed To Be Upset
I stream everything I watch these days, so I didn’t watch the Academy Awards, but I read the live updates posted on The Hollywood Reporter’s website. When I read that Angela Bassett lost the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress last night, I headed over to my favorite town crier app, Twitter, to see what was being said about it. Black Twitter was up in arms, as well they should be, but I also saw some questionable tweets from White people regarding Ms. Bassett’s reaction when her name was not called as the winner of the award. Some of the tweets I saw were saying her reaction to not winning was classless, that she is an entitled Black actress who was upset at not winning an award because she is Black, that she should have smiled and applauded the woman who won.Chere Roshawn HamptonPublished 16 days ago in Humans
Book Review: Spare by Prince Harry
As a child of the 90s, I remember watching the devastating news reports of Princess Diana's death. I remember the sparkling hype of her charity works. As a little girl who dreamed of princesses and crowns, I adored her. Never in my wildest nightmares would I have suspected that her beautiful life was in fact so sad and so lonely.Little AlicePublished 16 days ago in Humans
Chris Rock: It's Always Something
You know, this one hurts. I had been a fan of Chris Rock for over 25 years; the "Lil Penny" commercials, SNL, his movies, his stand-up specials, you name it. I was a huge supporter of Chris Rock. I was a big time fan of his. I was one of his most staunchest of supporters. Notice the increasing emphasis on "was." It's because on the afternoon of March 5, 2023, I tweeted the following:Clyde E.

G-Is for String
Thirteen years in the exotic dance, strip world may have left me with emotional and physical scars. But, what it mostly left me with were stories. Tons of them. Funny, sad, frightening, and eye-opening. Being the only stripper I knew who traveled with a Remington portable typewriter in my costume case, I recorded many along the way. The rest I know by heart.Tina D'Angelo
A Love Letter
Dear You, I more than often would catch myself staring at you wondering how I caught you. I must have tricked you somehow, I must have put on some illusion that was better than the real me. You ask me why I stare at you, and I always respond with “I just like looking at you,” but it’s so much more than that. I used to remind myself over and over again that I would find someone who loved me and would be with me forever; that there was no need to long for love, cause it would come. Now, I would look back at my younger self and say, “I told you so”. That moment is here, it’s been here all along. I know I didn’t trick you or fool you into believing I am someone I’m not. It’s truly me and I love you and you love me.Grace Gettys
AI Copywriting Is A Tool—Human Touch Is The Creator
For a more neutral, civil, and comprehensive look at the current advantages and disadvantages of ChatGPT, here's a newsletter I released with my client, Got Writer's Block, for anyone interested. I'll try not to repeat (too much of) what I wrote there in this post, but please be advised that I will be much more frank in my anti-stance here.Mimo le Singe

What can I give you, my beautiful daughter? Please, papa, just a bracelet. I want a green bracelet with a golden charm. Green crystals are not close to our home, but I will find you the finest. As for the gold charm, what shape shall I carve it?Emily Marie ConcannonPublished 2 months ago in Humans

Christmas for Me
I’m not spending Christmas like most families this year. I’m not even sure what is “normal” for most families. I’m spending Christmas like every other day, actually. I’m not obligated to anyone or any organisation this year and it’s quite refreshing, yes. It’s been the first in probably ten years of my career.Nicole H Chiu
