"It is what it is"
The content that you read on The Autistic Help blog is what it is. Everything that you read on this blog is real, authentic, to the point and as candid as I possibly can make it. I'm not strict about the SEO dynamic and the technical mumbo jumbo that goes along with the internet these days. The Autistic Help isn't a blog that I want to micromanage. The Autistic Help is a free space for autistic readers (and non-autistic readers) to express their opinions on the topics that I present if they so wish. I put emphasis on the word "free", a word that many people abuse these days.
Nowadays when people use the word "free", they only use that word to their own liking and interpretation. What they consider "free" may not always actually be "free" in reality, if you know what I mean. If they're happy with the content that is written and put out there, for example, then they'll consider that free space to be acceptable. If they're not happy with that content, then of course they will throw a hissy fit and undermine and devalue everything a writer writes. "That's not free space! No freedom for you!", they'll say.
That's the world we live in today and society in general is at fault for letting issues like this get this bad. Society in general has lost so much sense of itself that whenever rules are put up for people to follow, it becomes very easy for people to get confused, as in people don't know how to interpret rules anymore. As a writer, I would know plenty about this. As an autistic person, it hurts especially. I don't like to be confused about any sets of rules that I would need to follow. I don't want to be confused. I never purposely try to scramble my brain just by reading rules, whether they be for a job listing or what have you. Stuff just happens, and even after I ask for help to clarify the rules, people get upset at me. Hey, that's the world we live in today.
I want to get the point across through The Autistic Help blog that freedom is just that; freedom. I am free to write about anything that touches my heart and moves me in such a way to write about it. If people have a problem with what I write and how I write it, then I say that's just too bad. They can instead read glorified sensationalism content like the Huffington Post, for example. No, I don't take that last sentence back.
|^ I will NEVER let anyone treat me like this.|
Just because I state that I'm autistic shouldn't give people the license to undermine my work, disrespect my standing as a writer and string me along like a puppet to fulfill their wishes. I don't like to be micromanaged. I don't like to be bullied. I don't like to be told what I can and cannot do, especially if it means sacrificing my identity and my integrity. Just because my brain is wired differently compared to others doesn't give people the right to label me as uneducated or someone who just doesn't "get it". If this is how society behaves, thinks and acts, then maybe we need to start lightening up on all the technical mumbo jumbo and start getting back to basics?
