✥ I’m Not Broken ✥

Autism awareness is something that is truly a here at home in my heart subject. So many children are born autistic, and so many of those children spend their lives bullied, belittled and picked on, simply because to others they are “different”. As many know, the puzzle pieces of Autism are a symbol of many things and to each take their own from it. Autism is not something we need to fix, these children and young adults, even elderly, are NOT broken. Just because we may not understand something does not make it wrong. As a society, we should be building up these children and young adults……. Let’s put it this way….. would you repeatedly shove your hand into a spinning fan over and over every single day? No, of course, you wouldn’t….. but a child or other…. their brain experiences that rapid fire every single day, for them it’s like a thousand firecrackers exploding in their brain and they get abruptly halted from one circumstance to the next. How would that make you feel? So many times I have been witness to bullies both in real life and especially second life…. the amount of arrogance, ignorance, and flat out bullshit, to be honest, that happens in a place that SHOULD be safe for everyone makes me ill. Would you walk up to a special needs person in rl and pull all your friends with you to make fun of them and belittle them in the grocery store? I should hope not! So why do it in secondlife? Does it make you feel powerful? More awareness for those that do live with Autism among many others, should be supported in both our worlds. You never know who it is standing beside you at an event or next to you at the club. I understand, SL has some people who without a doubt abuse this and many other conditions. But before you jump on that bandwagon to throw in your two-cents about what may or may not be true….. is it worth it?

The outfit I put together to represent my little spiel above is from Bakaboo…… Out of all the creators I’ve met, His are the MOST colorful of them all…. this dress really allowed me to utilize the bright and exciting image of Autism. Thank you, Ocean Blackthorne, for an amazing product and keeping our minds bright with color
