positive-memes: Wholesome Brother in Law: r/AskReddit Posted by u/tmurg375 15h What's a secret your SO still doesn't know about you, and why have you kept it secret? Discussion 4 3.0k 2.8k Share BEST COMMENTS Honkey_McCracker.9h I hate her homemade spaghetti s.. Jollyskin 13 6画2-8h About eight years ago I discovered my wife's sister's reddit account accidentally. It was a variation of a username she'd used for AIM before, but with different numbers and no underscore (the numbers were a significant date to her though). There were too many coincidences in her posts for it not to be her. She was posting on the relationship advice sub- reddit. Her (now ex-) husband was abusive. We'd known something was off about him, but couldn't really put our finger on it. I created another ac- count that I only accessed from incognito mode to send her encouragement to leave, and to ask her family or friends (but kinda steered her towards us) for help. She didn't want to impose or be a burden on any of them (we'd just had a kid, and I make a bunch of money but we live well within our means so you wouldn't think this based on ap- pearances, so it was an understandable concern) I slowly, over several weeks and several different posts she made, convinced her that it's possible her family realizes something isn't quite right and would not consider it a burden to help her out. After their divorce I deleted that account, Nobodv will ever know that the random internet stranger who was weirdly persistent in encouraging my SIL to reach out to her family for help and leave her abusive marriage was actually me.

Wowwwwwwww SIGH. can someone please explain why autism speaks is so bad? because they’re adamant that autism is a disease that can be “cured”. They don’t have a single autistic person on their board. Autism Speaks produces advertisements, small films, ect. about what a burden autistic people are to a society. They only spend about 4% of their money on “family services.” They create a stereotype that makes it hard for actual autistic people, like myself, be heard and recognized as actually autistic. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder before they realized that I actually showed signs of Asperger’s. They don’t actually help us.  That’s the problem with Autism Speaks.  (tw for violence, ableism, abuse, murder, and death) It goes deeper than not having any autistic board members. Many of the allistics running the organization promote the horrific notion that you’re better off dead than autistic, and their influence and “activism” only supports the ideology resulting in the continued murder of autistic children and adults by their parents and caregivers. Former Autism Speaks board member Harry Slatkin, whose wife, Laura, continues to serve on the Board of Directors, stated in an interview with Town and Country while still a board member that sometimes he hoped their autistic son David would drown in the backyard pond rather than “suffer like this all his life.” Evidencing a pattern of similarly violent rhetoric, Autism Speaks is also responsible for the 2006 PSA “Autism Every Day“ in which their then Vice President states on camera that she considered putting her autistic daughter in the car and driving off a bridge, and that the only reason she refrained from doing so was because her other, non-autistic daughter would have been waiting for her at home—her autistic daughter was in the room as she made these statements. Furthermore, the producer of this PSA explicitly admitted that the film was intentionally staged to portray negative images of autistic people and their families. Only four days following the release of “Autism Every Day,” pathologist Karen McCarron smothered her autistic daughter with a garbage bag. McCarron stated that she murdered Katie because her “autism had not been improving,” had thought about killing Katie, that made an earlier brief attempt at suffocation, wanted to cure Katie, thought killing Katie would make her “complete” in heaven, and wanted to live without autism and thus had to kill Katie. Investigators found that McCarron was obsessed with different treatments for Katie. (See People v. FRANK-McCARRON, 934 NE 2d 76 - Ill: Appellate Court, 3rd Dist. 2010.) Though it is not presently possible to draw a direct connection between Autism Speaks’ PSA and Katie’s murder, this crime and dozens like it only underscore how the kind of rhetoric that Autism Speaks favors only serves to recklessly endanger the lives of autistic people. (source article) Autism Speaks also publicly supports the Judge Rotenberg Center, a group home for autistic and neurodivergent students that uses “treatments” like food and sleep deprivation and electric shock to try and train the residents into acting neurotypical. The center has changed states three times in an attempt to bypass regulation against abusive treatment, and their practices have resulted in the deaths of more than one student. It’s not just an issue of Autism Speaks making it harder for us to get proper diagnoses and treatment. Autism Speaks is actively killing us. Well shit. I was eyeing up their strawberries and cream lindor the other day but this is more important than delicious chocolate. you all need to know this. You really do. Please do not support Lindt or anything that supports autism speaks. Please. Seriously Lindt makes my favourite chocolate ever?? but My boyfriend is my favourite person ever so looks like I’m gonna go find a better candy maker, one that doesn’t support murder. ghirardelli lindt, and not just because of the autism speaks thing. I have autism and IM NOT JOKING THIS IS IMPORTANT Exactly. The autism “research” that autism speaks does, reeks very heavily of eugenics. Okay, but it’s not enough to just not buy this brand of chocolate. It has to be made known exactly what kind if org Autism Speaks is. The reason they spend so much on PR is so that the general public never funds out how reprehensible they are. No non-autistic person I speak to is ever aware of these things. If you find out an company is partnered with Autism Speaks, contact them. Call, email, write letters. Offer alternative charities. It may not work every time, but the more people you tell, the fewer people will be likely to donate to them in the future. this post is from 2014, anyone know if lindt still support autism speaks? https://www.autismspeaks.org/site-wide/lindt Unfortunately this is an ongoing thing every year. In 2017 Lindt has stopped supporting Autism Speaks. They have nothing up on their website about ending the partnership, but if you email and ask they’ll get back to you and say they’re going in new directions. : YOU SA You AVE Lindt will DONATE 10 to Autism Speaks for every Lindt GOLD BUNNY purchased. www.Lindt.com AUTISM SPEAKS AUTISM SPEAKS pink-rainbow-sparkles: sleepy-hylian: queen-val: mrs-transmuter: elaxisfae: lolhooplacatz: crazyeddieme: just-a-penis-with-a-dream: kibblesundbitches: unaspi: bluechirri: fishyinspace: supervengers: cishetsnotinvited: transheadcold: nauticus: friendly reminder not to support lindt this easter season, or apparently ever again, because they support autism speaks.
