1) I’m neurodiverse, chronically ill and a (hopefully vaguely effective) advocate for others. I’ve seen some stuff as a result.
2) I’ll take anyone to task who claims any of the above make anyone else lesser in any way.
3) But – because I’m also an irony magnet – I’m still biologically wired to experience Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria and conditioned from past experiences to feel toxic shame personally that I would never apply globally.
4) If I can’t beat the Bully-in-My-Brain, I can at least learn to laugh at it.
5) Puns are awesome.
