African-American children with autism are being diagnosed almost two years later than children of any other ethnic group [in the United States], holding up their treatment, and in turn, their quality of life, according to research.
When white children were misdiagnosed with autism they were usually told they had ADHD, but Mandell discovered that Black autistic children were told they had things like psychoses, mental retardation or selective mutism. This, along with the fear that Black parents have of reporting their child’s behavioral issues due to the fact that their children are removed from the home as a result more often, makes it hard for Black children with autism to get the treatment that they need.
People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.
I know it looks like magic, but it’s simple magic. There’s far more complex magic.
Can we stop calling letting go of an abusive past forgiveness? It isn’t. It doesn’t have to be. You don’t have to forgive someone to abandon your anger and grief

False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
So stop bringing them up like they’re the most important topic in discussions of rape and rape culture.
More importantly, men are more likely to be raped than to be falsely accused of rape. Like, 82,000x more likely.
Those numbers are clearly, obviously false, yo.
I mean. This should raise huge enormous red alerts that scream loudly in your head. You’re comparing a false accusation with being hit by a god forsaken comet.
Blizzard has created a comparatively safe space in gaming, and that’s worth preserving. It may be telling that it required us to give up almost all avenues of communication when playing against random opponents, but so be it. My long sessions are made more pleasant by the calls of “Well Played,” and “Ooops” that come as I make some good decision and some poor ones, and that’s all I need from my opponents.
If it means I don’t have to hear from anyone else, I’ll gladly shut up as well.
