An Aqueduct, Lavender, and Smile Candy – We Went to the South of France!

We toured the South of France, up the Rhône River, on a Viking River Cruise ship, the Heimdal. (All of the Viking River Cruise ships are named for Norse gods and goddesses.)

We Broke Laws That Disadvantaged Us. We Must Do It Again.

Our nation was founded by those who broke laws that disadvantaged them.

Since then, those of us who continued to be disadvantaged by the new legal system continued that tradition.

We must do that again.

There were dire consequences for doing so, ranging from being jailed and force-fed (women suffragists such as Alice Paul), to […]

Educators Should Realize that We Aspies Are As We Ought to Be, and Teach Us On Our Terms, Not Theirs.

Educators should realize that we Aspies are as we ought to be, and teach us on our terms, not theirs.

People on the autism spectrum have a lot of different words used to refer to us: Aspie, Asperger’s, Aspergirl, Asperwoman, autistic, and now, thanks to one of us, neuratypical.

What are the other people called? […]

A Show for Those of Us on the Autism Spectrum Rather Than for the Majority

Jim Parsons narrates the spinoff of The Big Bang Theory in Young Sheldon, playing, as usual, the adult version of the character. We never see him, and we are not meant to. That works, and I have been enjoying the show.

When I like a show, I do what I can to boost its ratings […]

Journalists Are Delighted to Disgust Bigots

Journalists are delighted when bigots are disgusted that they can present anything they wish to present.

They live to do that.

It is their mission in life.

It is their raison d’être.

Okay, you get the idea. I fun iterating it several ways.

Authoritarian bigots who disdain in-depth reporting backed up by sound research […]

Nature Has Conducted Another Eminent Removal

Every year, almost everywhere on the planet, there is another natural disaster that wipes out human development.

It doesn’t necessary wipe out the humans who developed – built settlements – on that land.

Hurricane Harvey has destroyed homes and other buildings and flooded the area that it hit.

The storm inundated dams so that […]

Book 3 of the Nae-Née Series is Out: New World Order Underwater.

At last, I can announce that I am the author of a completed series of novels on human overpopulation.

Here are their covers, done by artists Katelyn M. Gagnon (Book 1) and Steve Palmerton (Books 2 and 3):

The name of the series is Nae-Née, for a birth control nanite. The name is […]

Do you ever worry about people to take offense at your choice of words? Not anymore.

Intriguing exchange…

Question: Do you ever worry about people to take offense at your choice of words?

Answer: No. I decided to count on it and stop wasting emotional energy over it. I write about inflammatory topics as it is, so offense is practically guaranteed. I learned long ago that the Aspie demeanor tends to […]
