Instead of posting threads aimed to discuss me, lying and drawing negative attention to me: why don't we get this *** straight right here, and right now:
First and foremost. For those of you who aren't aware: I have high functioning, classical Autism. I've managed it well over the years, and managed to graduate from college recently.
As you can see in my previous threads: I've been president of a neurodiversity club on campus, was class valedictorian, was a peer mentor for young students who have disabilities. I've also compiled various campus ideas to create an atmosphere of disability acceptance on campus.
I've been highly regarded amongst professors, school faculty etc.... as for my classmates, I've had issues with them due to AS/NT disconnect that most of you understand. Whether or not that is how it came across on this forum, that is fact. I see absolutely nothing wrong with me coming here, and venting about them. Id be damned if I have to hold my breath and refrain from expressing myself in real life, AND come on this forum only to be subject to that same scrutiny.
Perhaps I need to put these in my signature, once again.
Aside from that, I've offered support whenever I was able to.
I haven't told you all. EVERYTHING that has happened to me, that makes me behave in such a way. Why? Because maybe I'm not comfortableb telling the whole world. You guys have no idea what my life has been like. For all you know, I could have been sexually abused, adopted by mean uncaring parents, etc... you guys don't KNOW THAT. I'm not saying or minimizing anyone else's life experience. My point is: you guys have NO RIGHT, NONE, to judge me. You've no right to publicly embarrass me, or mistreat me as some of you have. I feel like I'm writing to a bunch of children (for all I know, maybe I am).
Having mentioned my positive activity, you guys have no right to take some negative posts of mine and judge me harshly for them, or embarass me. Furthermore, I do not appreciate the level some members have gone to harass me. I don't not appreciate it at all. How come this isn't noticed?
Meanwhile, Ladi writes about wanting a job, and everyone feels the need to go behind my back and write a thread about it.
I am not talking about ALL members, but I'm addressing the few that I've had negative interactions with lately.
Before you accuseme of being another member, I'm demanding proof. Otherwise, keep your thoughts to yourself. I hope that isn't hard to comprehend. Let's be adults, and settle this diplomatically. if you don't know how to do that, then tough.
By the way, I do appreciate what Gareth is doing. However, i suggest that Gareth might take a look at the people here, their intentions,and the climate. Maybe then, there would be less attacking going on.
I'm not too concerned with being liked.
