Traduzindo a minha thread de ontem, que era pra ser só uma resposta a um tweet mas virou quase um desabafo:

Fui diagnosticada há alguns meses, aos 25 anos.

Passei por psicólogos e psiquiatras desde os 3 anos e recebi todos os tipos de diagnóstico, exceto autismo. +
+ Hoje consigo ver que era muito óbvio.

Nós (mulheres) somos subdiagnosticadas, especialmente porque quando expressamos nossos traços autistas, as pessoas não os veem como traços autistas. Nos veem como tímidas, rudes, anti-sociais...
E os médicos (pessoas), em geral, NÃO estão preparados para lidar com o autismo e pessoas autistas, muito menos para diagnosticar.

No meu caso, foi questionado e descartado na infância. Imaginem o qt a minha vida teria sido diferente se eu tivesse encontrado alguém capacitado.

I was diagnosed a few months ago.

At 25.

I started seeing psychologists and psychiatrists when I was 3 years old and received all different types of diagnosis, except autism - although now I see that it was VERY obvious.
We (women) are underdiagnosed, especially because when we express our autistic traits, people don't see them as autistic traits. They see us as shy, rude, antisocial...
And doctors (people), in general, are NOT prepared to deal with autism, much less to diagnose.

Our next book will honor the women who made history - from the anonymous to the most famous. We will try to give back to them, albeit symbolically, the space that has been denied so many times over the years.

I’m so moved by the research process that I needed to share.
The process is touching me deeply, and I’m emotionally affected by all the stories we have been hearing, reading and writing about.

I love the other books so much, but this one is not even done yet and I know it will be very special.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do this.

Uma vez me disseram que eu não deveria falar de saúde mental, eqt pessoa pública, pq isso me prejudicaria. Ouvi tb qd resolvi anunciar meu autismo.

Não dar ouvidos foi a melhor coisa que fiz. Serve pra mim, e tb pra você: quem não te respeita como você é, não deve fazer falta.
Além de que eu odeio o mito da "pessoa pública perfeita, infalível, super-heroína". Acho um dos conceitos mais idiotas que existem.
Também odeio o mito da "pessoa pública que não pode se manifestar, não pode falar de política, não pode levantar bandeiras, não pode declarar suas preferências". São as pessoas que têm mais alcance que precisam falar, se quiserem.

They (nazis) were humans, who acted like monsters. Pretending that this is not true will not help us understand the horrible things ordinary people can do.
And this is actually what makes this whole thing even more gross and scary.

They were humans who were laughing and enjoying a few drinks while disabled people (children included) were probably being murdered in the other room.

In the photo below, Aktion T4 personnel.
Basically, if we wait for all this evil to come back through someone who looks like a demon, we will miss the chance to notice the signs when it comes back through a person who looks like our neighbor (which is what usually happens).
