Autism Awareness Stamp by EinhanderZwei Autism Awareness Stamp by EinhanderZwei
Well, for all who thought I'm a cynical politically incorrect ruffian...
...I'm not.
And to prove it, I made this stamp!

Okay, to be fair, I'm dedicating it mostly to one specific person, BUT please feel free to append it to your profile as well, if you want to show your love and affection to those who are different and interesting! :huggle:

Uh... please don't say stuff like this.
It's very uncomfortable because it comes across as like, autistic people are hard to love or you're special for loving us.
The truth is, you probably love many people that are autistic. You probably don't know that they're autistic.
"I love someone with autism" isn't something to just proudly declare, because who cares? We're people. You love a person. Big deal.

I understand your point and completely agree with you :) But like I said in another comment, you should take into consideration that I'm living in a country where being a politically incorrect a$$hole is considered hawt and kewl; I personally know at least one person who uses 'Autistic Bullsh%t' as a swear term - and in Ukraine, you won't get sued for this or anything; quite the opposite, the supposed reaction to this would be 'LOLOLOL, that's so darn witty xDDD'

So that's why it's such a big deal to me, as well as the reason why I feel such necessity to indicate what I indicate with this stamp. And besides, since (again, according to the comments), the actual Autistic people here are not offended, but have quite an opposite reaction, I'm glad I've delivered the message successfully :)

That's a weirdly specific thing to say. Why does autism need to be mentioned anyway?

Well, there are several reasons:
1. First, in the Description I've stated that this is mostly dedicated to one specific person. I didn't reveal who this person is, so hopefully that justifies the 'weirdness'
2. Several times I've been wrongfully accused of intolerance towards certain groups of people; these accusations were surely settled as misunderstandings in the end, but I don't really want them to occur again
3. I am Ukrainian. I don't want to crap on my country, but the fact is that for the mass mentality of 95% of population over here, openly hating all who are different in any imaginable way (LGBTs, autists, mentally challenged people, hell, even foreigners) is not only a norm, but is actually celebrated and encouraged. I mean, we had billboards hanging all around my town saying smth like 'European integration means the legalization of gay marriages! BEWARE!!!'
   3a. Before I joined dA and actually spoke to some autistic people, I've imagined this to be a horrible devastating Plague Of Egypt akin to cancer, exactly because it's been built up this way by the aforementioned 95% of mass mentality. Yes it's stupid and naive of me, but I simply didn't have the opportunity to be proven wrong... until dA, that is.

So I just wanted to let everyone know I am not one of those fascistic pricks, and if the person is nice and interesting, I won't stop interacting with them just on the grounds that they're challenged in any way, or differ nationally/sexually/mentally/etc. It's my gesture of respect and support.

Thank you for the kind words sweetie! I know a lot of people who sport ridiculous prejudice, too, and considering my 'bad boy' attitude, I've been mistaken for one several times as well. So I really need everyone to know that I love all the funny, interesting, talented, erudite people around, no matter what kind of challenges they might have :huggle: And if I made you happy, then my message had been delivered successfully! :heart: :hug:

I saw that Journal, and to say it's depressing would be honoring it... so I'm very glad and relieved I have managed to ease at least some of your pain; that's the best reward I can wish for :huggle: :heart:

That's very nice to hear! To be honest, I was worried before posting this, as I thought some may find this offensive in some way or another; luckily, I was wrong :D

And that's exactly why I'm so happy to successfully express my message; I have a habit of choosing awkward words for my thoughts, and I really didn't want this to slip here and cause useless misunderstandings
