To celebrate my new stickers that are /definitely not going to be found all across the Portland metro area/ I designed a patch instlpired by @Zuph ! You should definitely go over there and get some of these stickers, I don't think I'll be able to live in a city that doesn't have these somewhere.
I also have some fresh small white patches, both with and without embroidery or words. My favorites are the shiny ones :sun: :_moonstars:
All these babies are totally for sale.

Autistic Identity

In addition, we use the term Autistic Community to refer inclusively to people who have been identified by professionals as being on the autism spectrum and to those who are self-identified. We recognize that there are many reasons why a person may fall into one group or the other, and we respect the right of individuals in our community to make their own choices in this regard. Many Autistics were given a diagnostic label in childhood or sought a formal diagnosis in adulthood to obtain services and accommodations. Others have not done so for reasons that include financial barriers, lack of qualified professionals in a locality, obtaining sufficient accommodations on an informal basis, or the political view that our community should not have professionals as its gatekeepers. ASAN believes that all of us can and should work together in solidarity to accomplish our common goals.

Every spring we get lots of horsetails, which is known for medicinal and nutritional qualities. They are also used as an ingredient for Japanese delicacy called tsukudani.

Reflecting on the fact that most of the people I know who are concerned about online surveillance work in tech themselves.

Like, is it because we work more closely with it and thus know how all this stuff works? If the general public fully understood what they were accepting with recent tech, would they be okay with it?

Not all tech workers are concerned with it, but the number of less-technical people I've encountered who are concerned with it is pretty close to zero.
