Autistic Education Survey

Show Notes

In this episode, Nicnac wrestles with the reality of their internal world and how that impacts the way they see the external world after losing a social connection they had a lot of hope for earlier in the month. While they know that attempts at sharing their internal world rarely go well no matter the social context, they hold steadfast in their desire to embrace their authentic autistic and borderline self. 

They express hope that careful online communities can continue to find the kind of lived truths that medicine and science can’t. Feeling that, although life for anyone not rich white and male is difficult, it’s better to intellectually and emotionally battle oppression than to completely withdraw and mask. Nicnac ain’t down yet. But, they’ve more than had it with a world that is hell-bent on oppressing divergent thoughts.

They close by again encouraging others with lived autistic experience to take Detester Maginzine’s educational survey if they have the capacity to do so. They are putting as much as they can into listening to others with greater or different knowledge of the lived experience than they possess. Please see the links below so you don’t have to take their word for it.

The Philosophy Of Disability

In this episode, Nicnac describes their Philosophy of Disability and the way that the world they live in forces them into thinking about it in many ways at the same time. They reason that the best way to make progress on this is to keep sharing their experience and empathically listening to the experience of others.

Knowledge

In this episode Nicolas attempts to take the next step from the last episode by searching for the definition of knowledge. Finding nothing definitive, they go through their understanding of the concept and its limits. Once again they find that their efforts fruitless. Further, they discover that their efforts have in fact represented an attempt to escape their reality.
