Sup guys, is this place alive?

>I think it's weird you think that calling people with autism "drooling retards" is getting words mixed up.

Toybox told me I was confusing the word "autism" with "mentally retarded" and that they are 2 seperate unrelated things, which at the time I didn't know that.

She also told you that Aspergers is a form of autism.

And really, you shouldn't use words that you don't know the meaning of. Didn't you ever wonder why people with autism were getting pissed off at you?

I remember a week ago, i was going to one of my senior homes to teach a tai chi class, and on the same day they were having a specialty clothing store thing in the same area where i teach class. The stuff was mostly for women and it was very colorful, and as this was a upper class senior home, alot of it was rather hoity toity.

It didn't get in the way of my class, which went without a hitch. And my class was rather satisfied. The students all thanked me and headed off on their own ways! all except for one gentleman.

his name is Jack, and he's older, like 95ish. He has mobility issues and takes some time to get up and going, so he is always the last to leave. I go up to him and ask him "how are you feeling jack? you did great out there!" as i always do.

He says "Oh i'm doing okay, i was just looking at all these very colorful dresses" He smiled and then said "It makes me kinda wish i was a woman, so i could wear some of them :)"

now i highly doubt at his age he meant anything except he just likes the way they look, but i found it very sweet <3 i said "well what's stopping you? they look wonderful!"

he just laughed and thanked me for the class, and shuffled along home. It was a very small but telling moment for me, and i'm greatful i get to know some of my students <3


what's some sweet moments in your life?

Finding out a stranger at a bus stop had recently got a hoped for job working in the University gardens, I congratulated them with Jefferson's quote, "Those who labour in the earth are the chosen people of God, if ever he had a chosen people, whose breasts he has made his peculiar deposit for substantial and genuine virtue. It is the focus in which he keeps alive that sacred fire, which otherwise might escape from the face of the earth."  (Or at least as much as I had in memory).  The bus came as I finished.  

For a socially awkward pony, those few interactions that succeed seem special.

I have one. It is old and I can't vouch for the veracity, but a story I heard frequently while growing up…

So, two bits of background. First, mom's family has a distinct name, especially for our culture. The working theory is that we changed it to that of a foreign noble family after we were converted to avoid persecution, but it was butchered somewhat in the interim. I think that was rather clever, if true. Secondly, grandpa was a doctor who started out treating lepers. He developed a reputation working with outcasts and rejects, and was frequently called upon in his time to handle such "sensitive" cases.

We start long ago. Grandpa's private practice was on the first floor of his house, so the address was known. One day, a dangerous young man escaped from the insane asylum in town, and had been seen wondering around the neighborhood, slamming on doors and demanding to see the doctor. Everybody had been ordered to stay indoors until the police could arrive and apprehend or incapacitate the dangerous man, but mom was the spoiled brat daughter of a wealthy and influential man and thus had no respect for authority, and she snuck out when nobody was looking and sat with the man, now resting on the curb exhausted from his mad rage. She talked with him for a while with the naive sincerity of a child, until he was eventually calmed enough for her father to convince him to surrender peacefully, sparing the police a bullet and the asylum the cost of a criminal's grave.

Fast forward about 20 years. There has been a bloody regime change. Old ideas are outlawed. She has fled the country and her father has long since died in a labor camp. She has now grown up in a new and much larger country where she works as a teacher. In a show of defiance towards new slights, the regime of the old country opens up emigration, loading the boats of future exiles with criminals and other undesirables. Her new country, deep into a very long and secretive war with their other rival, rounds up the refugees into large camps so they can search them for spies at their leisure. She and other respectable exiles are brought in as translators and to smooth cultural tensions with the detainees.

A particularly large wave of refugees arrive all at once in the camp she is working at. They are violent and unruly and quickly take over the camp. The police try to contain them with high pressure hoses, but they attack the hoses regardless

The solution is to actually give a shit about the people around you. You don't have to be friends with everybody, but at least don't go out of your way to make someone else miserable.

Modern society has a bad case of 'Got mine' syndrome. As long as someone gets what they want they don't care who gets shafted in the process. Even if it's not specifically malicious, just small things like not holding the door for someone who is obviously right behind you, or not letting someone merge because you just have to be 3 feet closer to your destination like it makes a difference, but that 3 feet is preventing someone from getting over, making them miss their exit.

Things like this build up over time. Most of the time these outbursts aren't due to one major event setting someone off. It's the culmination of constantly being slighted or ignored by the people around you just because helping you doesn't reap any kind of instant reward.

If the guy in front of you in line is a dollar short for lunch, offer to give him a buck. You never know if that guy had an assault rifle in the back of his car and after lunch planned to mow down his office. Your kindness may not stop him, but maybe it'll make him take a second look at the people around him.

All to often it's just 'inconvenient' to care about others. You don't have to donate to charity or go work for Green Peace to make a difference. All it takes is for you to look at the situations other people around you are in and maybe take that one extra step to try and make that situation better if you can.

Don't be the last straw. It's all you can really do.

nobody cares about mental illness until people die, whether mental illness played a part or not. then they care for exactly 5 minutes, lose interest, and we wait until more people to die while simultanously doing nothing to actually help real people. society loves this moralistic bullshit posturing and it never ends, it's an endless feel good circlejerk for people too frightened and too stupid to consider the needs and concerns of actual people and speak on behalf of people who are now dead and cannot speak on their own accord.

life is hard and complex, death is a great opportunity for people to let their shallow moralistic compasses out

I don't think it's fair to blame the people around them for the actions of psychos. I've felt like shit before. Like no one cares about me, like I didn't have the will to live. But I never once tried to turn those feelings on innocent people. That's something only a certain kind of person would do.
