This is a Museum of Consciousness


Hello there! I'm Alex, 21 years of age, an artist/designer/writer/all-around creative girl with a curious mind.
This is a collection of musings, reflections, nonsensical ramblings, music, photographs, and other things that pertain to my interests. My ask is always open, as well as submissions. Engage, contribute, & enjoy!

Tumblr is a real-time, continuous documentation of language evolution and race dynamics. Over the last three years I’ve seen the language used by the Black users I follow make its way into the lexicon of white and other nonblack people’s vernacular. It happens rapidly and the astonishing thing is that despite the indisputable and clearly identifiable origins of the words and phrases coined primarily by Black Americans, nonblacks lay immediate claim to the language and use it to trivialize African American culture and dehumanize and persecute its purveyors.

In certain areas of my life, I actively seek out solitude. Especially for someone in my line of work, solitude is, more or less, an inevitable circumstance. Sometimes, however, this sense of isolation, like acid spilling out of a bottle, can unconsciously eat away at a person’s heart and dissolve it. You could see it, too, as a kind of double-edged sword. It protects me, but at the same time steadily cuts away at me from the inside.

autisticfandomthings:

The way neurotypical scientists frame autistic behavior is so fucked up. 

Autistic people tend to talk enthusiastically, and at length about the things we love. You can frame this in one of two ways

"Autistic people show a strong desire to share the things they love with those around them"

Or

"Autistic people are self-centered, obsessive and unaware of other people, and show no desire to have reciprocal conversation"

And, guess which one the neurotypical scientists go for?
