It feels weird to type this into the submit box, but you don’t have an ask on here, so here goes. I love this blog. I just happened to find it one day when some series of Wikipedia articles led me to the word “high-functioning”, and I looked up what exactly that means, because I had never really been sure. You make a very good point through your posts. That’s basically...
Having An Unpopular Opinion
If you say anything going against what the majority says about developmental disabilities, then you are seen as “too high-functioning” for your words to be valid.
Not "Appearing" Mentally Disabled
When I was a child, people said I wasn’t disabled “enough” because I had an imagination and did not have Down syndrome.
If you are considered a physically attractive and verbal adult woman, then you automatically having passing privilege (and will be seen as a liar when you say you cannot do things), and you automatically will be considered high-functioning.
