Happy end of Autism Awareness Month! It looks like Zoom meetings are the great equalizer for us socially awkward autistics! With all the clumsy talking over one another, uncertainty about what to say when, doubt about what to do with your hands, questioning whether you’re lack of grooming will be noticed are all part of the everyday existence of many high-functioning autistic people.

We’ve been talking about Trump’s mental health since he descended the gold scented elevator seemingly a lifetime ago. But, now things are serious and we mean it this time. Now, we are reaching imminent danger to self and others. While we’re not talking suicidal shooting rampage, we are talking about destroying the country or even the world.
Dopamine is the neurotransmitter that motivates us to pursue things we think will be pleasurable. It keeps us feeding at the trough. If the mesolimbic dopamine system is broken, we are not motivated to do anything. Could it be one of the drivers of Pathological Demand Avoidance?
I’ve been struggling to write something about Autism Awareness Month for a while. It is too wrapped up with grieving my mother and sister. So, here’s a short revelatory self-pitying piece about my messy autistic life.
Vox’s Eliza Barclay interviewed Bandy Lee, the Yale psychiatrist making all the noise about the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s mental health posing a threat to the country and he needs a psych eval. I offer some commentary on her thoughts.
Recently, Stanford psychologist, Robert Sutton, published “The Asshole Survival Guide,” his recommendations on how to deal with the assholes in your life based on his study of assholes. He was interviewed over at Vox. Such fun!
It is clear that we live in a rape culture and that it will take a lot to change it. What does it take for individuals to make a difference? To stand up and speak out?
I have oft opined on the mental health status of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber. I make it no secret. I also wrote about the duty to warn about a dangerous person about to inflict serious harm on someone or something — certainly the way I see the Ol’ Pussy Grabber. Here are some other sides to the argument, but decidedly less snarky, sarcasticky, and profaney.
In “Out of the Autistic Closet,” I recounted my experiences with autism and opined that it was a disorder of prediction. This article supports that approach.
The news out of the WH in the last two weeks has been absolutely extraordinary. Everyone is AMAZED that the admin is so inept, clumsy, obvious. But, should they be amazed? We have a NARCISSIST running the executive branch of the government! What did anyone expect?
The Ol’ Pussy Grabber is getting desperate, so he is pushing his lies, exaggerations, intimidations, and coercions faster and more furiously now. I review the seven signs of gaslighting written as the sonnet, “How Do I Love Thee?” Please don’t hate me.
I’m finally out of the closet! The autism closet, that is. In honor of Autism Awareness Month, I wanted to share what my life with autism is like.
Gaslighting. It’s terribly popular to accuse the Ol’ Pussy Grabber of being a gaslighter, but what is he doing exactly? Is it on purpose with malice aforethought or is it accidental? Is it habit? Let’s expose the Ol’ Pussy Grabber…
Is the Ol’ Pussy Grabber actually diagnosable? Is his behavior abnormal? Evaluate his recent tweets yourself using these psychology approved categorization methods! It’s fun for the whole family
The grift that will never stop grifting! Trump, the transition team, and his surrogates continue gaslighting America!
Are you grieving the passing of the election? Clinton’s presidency? Your hopes & dreams for the future? Let’s apply the five stages of grief to the election, okay?
I’ve collected my four posts concerning gaslighting and Donald Trump into one post for your convenience.
The amazing example of gaslighting that Trump’s birtherism circus! Nothing is clearer!
