A thing happened to the Autistic Community which led to a thing within in the Autistic Community.
I promised I would shift my creative energies towards Autistic Advocacy. With that said, please enjoy this, the first episode of my new YouTube series, The Autistic OS. This episode concerns autistic social communication, specifically, in the area of social reciprocity.
When I began this blog and when I entered the social media landscape as Cornflower Girl, I did not set out to be an Autistic Creator. I did set out to produce content to which others could relate, which would, hopefully, facilitate catharsis for wounded souls in need of balm, like my own. I began creating content for online consumption long before I ever realized I am Actually Autistic. It all began with a novel project, which I have referenced from time to time within these pages, and while I’ve shelved that particular endeavor (for who knows how long?) it did play a necessary role in my personal evolution.
I would like to invite you to visit my “Dismantling Oppressive Shit” page. I have recently updated it to include Quick Links to five distinct video collections on various topics meant to raise awareness and galvanize action towards equality for marginalized people.
Today I would like to share my new YouTube series, Cornflower Mission Statement, wherein I read the contents of each, for those who prefer videos more than written text. Please enjoy!
Dictionary.com defines motley as first, an adjective, “exhibiting great diversity of elements,” and second, a noun, “a medley.” I claim …
Through my content, I intend to empower underlings to insist on community and cooperation, rejecting subservience, demanding respect as autonomous participants in braiding the social tapestry, no longer minions upholding the egos of the reigning authority. We must assert independence from autocratic institutions and despotic social communities.
There are hoards of so-called TikTok “expert” accounts on the app and on YouTube, and they swear that TikTok does not shadowban users. I call bullshit.
I felt inspired to create this video this morning. I wore red, white, and blue today, with great pride, which is something I don’t think I have ever done with intention as an adult. I feel proud to be an American today, and I am hopeful that we have turned a corner as a nation, with the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris, and the removal of 45. Enjoy!
