Autism Acceptance Month: Day 30

April is over in 1 hour, and it’s very weird. This was probably my least triggered April, due to COVID-19 and the stay-at-home order. I only really went out for groceries, so I wasn’t flooded in a sea of blue and fake acceptance. But it’s obviously a conflicted feeling, knowing the reasons WHY I avoided the blue mess. So, the final prompt is simple enough…

April 30: What would you like your final message of Autism Acceptance Month to be?

…however, I am struggling to think of what to say. I think throughout the month, I’ve covered a wide range of topics, both personal to me and to the autistic community. So, I don’t have a slew of information on any particular subject to talk about. I just want to say thank you to those that have been reading my posts, and I hope you will continue to advocate for us and yourselves beyond April.

Have a fantastic May everyone!

The Autistic Alien

My name is CJ. As of December 2019, I am 28 and use she/her pronouns. I consider myself to be an activist and care deeply about the intersectional rights of human beings. I've created this blog because I felt that there is still much stigma and misinformation about autism, and a lack of resources for autistic adults. I was diagnosed with Asperger's (now a subcategory of Autism Spectrum Disorder in the DSM-V) at age 12 and have come a long way since then to understand myself and others. Other than blogging, I enjoy reading, adventuring, and being around animals.
