Nuclear energy too.
I’ll post one now.
What is a Tigger?
It never hurts to ask what a Tigger is, no matter what age you are.
>when an artist shares you his/her music
>so many potentially fascinating people to talk with
>little to zero ways in which to begin a conversation
>unless you da homie
>then it might be difficult to aid a conversation in fear of incoherence and offense…which ironically may lead to it
>”I’m sorry”, “I’m sorry”, “My bad”, “Don’t kill me”, “Sorry”, “Sorry”.
I feel that claiming an mentally disabled person’s behavior is “weird” or “funny” could be one of the worst reactions, even if it’s unintentional or in good graces.
Imagine you make Lego cars. The pieces come with instructions to build it in a particular way, but you always accidentally alter the design to the point that the car doesn’t look right to you. You treat each failed Lego as a learning experience, but as your family and friends see them, they say it’s “unique” or “different”…but what if that’s the wrong criticism? Couldn’t that be offensive if you really just want to build a functional car?
Now, let’s say you have Autism. You stim and have meltdowns that disrupt your life. You seek treatment and practice diminishing your symptoms to function as neurotypically as possible. But you still have visible quirks, and your family and friends say you’re “weird” or “funny”…but that’s not how you want to be perceived, is it?
I understand that some people like/tolerate “weird” or “different” and that some mentally disabled people are fine with those labels, but I would prefer being known for who I am: an Autistic who has issues functioning in social environments. I care less for charity and more for honesty.

This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
"Are we gonna need to cut it off?"
