My hair is currently about mid chest length. This has more to do with sensory issues than any particular fondness for long hair.

top center is on Pinterest and I was unable to trace a link back from there, but it seems to be from a site called kidshairstyles.com

My first short haircut was based on the bottom left picture ^_^ Short hair allows you to feel the wind in your hair easier and has less tendency to get in your face but can be confusing for neck temperature. If you get it cut longer than 1” long then they’ll use scissors, which may help for sensory issues? (Idk how yours relate to haircutting, but I know I have issues with clippers tickling my back when used on my neck, lol)

It&#8217;s more an issue with being touched, unfortunately. I have serious trouble with just handshakes or being bumped into while walking, so fingers in my hair right around the scalp is a great big NOPE. There&#8217;s&#8230; also other things, which I won&#8217;t get into in this post, but you&#8217;ve probably been following me long enough to guess. 
Basically in order for me to get a short haircut I&#8217;d either have to become a lot less sensitive to touch, or learn how to cut my own hair. If it wasn&#8217;t for that I&#8217;d get a short cut in a heartbeat, but as it stands now I don&#8217;t even trim the ends of my long hair (though I do plan to attempt that much at least.)

SAT Double Feature

attackofthemathbeast:

Most people I know are in college, but hey, maybe someone wants to review old SAT problems. If nothing else, you can go ‘I am so glad I’m not taking the SAT right now’. Of course, SAT problems tend to have shorter solutions, so I’m going to do two of them! Both of these come from the 7 practice problem set on the SAT web site. They were the ones labeled ‘hard’.

Already, you should be able to see that you either know the answer to these, or you don’t. There is no middle ground here. Since this review would be super boring if I assumed you knew the answers, I’m going to actually go ahead and explain them.

Hey my good friend here writes an amusing math blog and even if you don’t want to read through the solutions you should at least read the survivability ratings at the end. Do it. Do it now.

Question reblogged from The Autistic Self Advocacy Network with 274 notes

wrath-of-khepri asked: Hey I don't know if you saw but there's a petition to revoke autism speaks of its nonprofit status!

thorinoakiedokieshield:

into-the-weeds:

Answering this publicly, this is important:

I have seen the petition. I have not signed it, because it is not how the law works. It will not work. It is a waste of time and effort. 

If you want to challenge Autism $peaks, and I hope you do, your time and efforts are better spent 

A) encouraging their corporate and celebrity sponsors to think twice, and

B) urging your congressional delegation to substantially reform, or else not pass, the reauthorization of their signature piece of legislation, the Combatting Autism Act.

Petitions play an important role in a modern activist’s toolbox. But they need to be well-constructed, and they need to be strategic. They need to either move the conversation forward and break into new circles, or they need to contain an actionable ask. This petition doesn’t, and it won’t work. Please don’t waste your time and energy.

But the Combatting Autism Act? We can get shit done there.

the petition also compared what AS does to the oppression of black people which isn’t a good thing to do

Post with 3 notes

Sometimes I wonder if I’m actually just massively dysfunctional due to emotional/chemical child abuse, and it just sort of looks like autism to the people doing the psych evaluations and whatnot, while other times I wonder if various events in my childhood were only traumatic to me because I was on the autism spectrum and I was never actually abused. Neither makes rational sense, but these thoughts still cross my mind.
