I have a bone to pick about the way this person behaved. Marginalized people are often expected to defend their experiential learning and perceptions (people of various faiths, LGBTQIA, PW Disabilities, POC etc). When they express an opinion on Social Media, they are suddenly expected to provide a dissertation in support of their point of view.
Sentinel Intelligence is the ability to sense threats that are undetectable by most people. People with high intelligence and heightened anxiety are more likely to exhibit Sentinel Intelligence. It's connected to altruism and raised empathetic ability.
Why I’m Still Boycotting Autism Speaks
Planned Parenthood is targeted for defunding, as well as attacks by extremists, because 5% of their budget is spent on something a segment of the population morally disagree with. This same segment throw financial and personal support at Autism Speaks, including President Trump and Vice President Pence, when the result of finding a way to diagnose autism in the womb will lead to the same exact place. Children with autism will be aborted. The hypocrisy is aggravating. The fact these men appear to despise autistic people more than they openly hate abortion is terrifying.
Autism Is My Super Power…Or Not
We aren't a collection of quirks, stims, and sensitivities. We are real people with problems, like everyone else.
Punching Nazis Is Better Than Promoting Their Treatments For Autism
It's so bizarre that I'm not convinced a treatment that began in Nazi Germany with the torture of mentally ill and autistic people before their eventual murders is a good direction to take.

Inappropriate Facial Expressions Don’t Make Someone a Killer
My sister better hope she never gets questioned in a murder. PSA: People react to stress and grief in different ways.
PerSEVERance is when you sever a task from everything else and pursue it with single-minded focus.
Aphantasia: Memory, Visualisation, and Autism
...I decided to test a hypothesis. I tried to imagine a beach. Nothing. My mind was a blank screen. The story was different when I added feelings...When I added emotions, images flooded into my mind
Looking Away From The Murder of Disabled People
The sad fact is that violence against disabled people is normalized in our society. It's a revolutionary act for a person with a disability to boldly proclaim they don't want to be put out of their misery. It is an act of defiance against social norms for a family member to say they don't feel burdened by someone they love, and would fight tooth and nail for that person to remain in their lives. It is considered insensitive to tell someone who loved the movie Me Before You that you think it sends a dangerous message.
Burden – A Heavily Loaded Word
If their existence wasn't such a burden, it wouldn't have been necessary to murder them.
