Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

A condition that's highly misrepresented by organizations and trolls alike. They claim that autism is a disease that needs to be cured when in reality people with autism have had many positive effects on our society. For example, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and even Nikola Tesla were all autistic. If you want to actually know about autism and how we think go to the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. This site will give you all of the factual information you need about how we express ourselves and provide opportunities to help out in ways that are actually meaningful to the autistic community.
I'm autistic, which is why I am writing this, and I urge you to please be careful what you search up on the internet about autism because not all of it is true. The reason why you can trust the source I provided is because it is supervised by autistic people themselves who actually know what it's like to live with autism.

Autism is a disorder which is when one's brain is formed differently, making it difficult to understand social cues. People with Autism usually are born with weak fine motor skills and bad social skills, making it hard for them to socialize with others.

It is NOT an insult used to call people idiots.
The person writing this has Autism. I hope that people do research before using Autism as an insult, as it should not be used that way and can be quite offensive to those with Autism!

A nurological disorder where people develop social skills at a unusually slow pace. Autism is not a disease, and it has a extreamly large range of symptoms and severity. Every case is different. Do not criticize or insult autism people because of their autism; first, it’s just plain mean, second, it will not help their social development speed, finally, its part of their identity, respect it.

I am a autistic teenager, I posted this so people would stop calling me and my friends disabled autistics. It’s not okay. I am proud of my identity, including my autism, people should understand that me, along with most other autistic people I know, that all parts of identity should be respected, even autism.
Autistic person -“I have autism spectrum disorder.”
Friend- “no you don’t! You act a lot like everyone else, well, except when you inturupt a lot and get frustrated easily.”
Autistic kid- “yeah I do. I was diagnosed in kindergarten. There are lots of different symptoms to it, and those you just mentioned are mine.”
Friend- “well, I guess everybody’s working on something.”

Something that everyone on the internet loves to make fun of despite not knowing anything about it. Like, at all.
Most people with autism are stereotyped as immature and mentally delayed which is really not true at all. It's not a mental illness, but a developmental disorder. And there's actually more high functioning autists than low functioning autists and a majority of them are mostly innocent and not seriously disabled.
