Thinking about the importance of #ownvoices to me as an #actuallyautistic reader. Keep in mind, I love so many non-own voices books and authors. But for those who are neurotypical, cis het white readers, this might help you understand the movement from a different perspective.
I grew up surviving by mimicry while also afraid to be seen by people. My wife, also #autistic, is an observer. I am a hider. I was afraid to be a target. So I learned to be neurotypical by reading anything and everything I could. I didn't know that was my reason though.
Now, as a 40 year old, I understand and do it purposely. I've learned to act more sexually interested than I may be, not as a negative, but to make my wife (or partner at the time) know that I do want to be there, but #asexuality means I experience it differently.

alright y'all, here begins the livetweet book review of @De_Kosnik's Rogue Archives! I will tweet until my flight and then compose through the whole flight and tweet them all out at the end

so to begin, I should say that I'm coming at this from what I didn't realize was a Rogue/Community Archiving perspective myself—Im working on #polyamory and #asexuality archives, both because I think they are essential and not filled yet and because, well I'm an archivist
I'm currently working at @kinseyinstitute, and I've done a few collections there from finding aid to physical archiving, and I've also made (and donated) smaller collections—the Kinsey now has the only ASCII pornography archive that I'm aware of because I made it

I looked up @lgbtmap's resources showing which states have passed bans against #conversiontherapy on the basis of sexual orientation for minors. The states are CA, WA, OR, NV, NM, IL, VT, NH, RI, CT, NJ, DE, and MD + D.C. lgbtmap.org/equality-maps/….
Here are the relevant portions of CA's law: "This bill would prohibit a mental health provider, as defined, from engaging in sexual orientation change efforts, as defined, with a patient under 18 years of age."
“Sexual orientation change efforts” means any practices by mental health providers that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation.
