Let me know if you'd like to see these in the mix for #AutisticAF Out Loud Podcast.TRANSCRIPT 👇✌️🖖👇 Listen & Subscribe: Apple Spotify Audible Stitcher PocketCasts Amazon/Alexa TRANSCRIPT Know what I don't see on #DisabilityTikTok… #DisabilityTwitter?Talk about how the economy is killing disabled folk.See… Inflation isn't inconvenient for the poor & disabled.It's lost wages. We can't afford gas, childcare… even over-the-counter medicines. And Covid is killing our hours at work.It's hunger. Food is our largest expense after rent. General inflation is  around 10%. But our groceries? Up 40%.It's illness. Covid? Monkeypox? We can't call in sick. We can't afford it.  And we can't abandon our kids when they're sick.It's homelessness. There's nothing we can afford to rent. Corporations buy up low-cost homes on speculation… creating a housing crisis.And don't get me started on the medical crisis. Lots of places, doctors simply don't accept Medicaid. Taxpayers pay for our care. Caregivers don't care.Poor? Disabled? Most autistics are both. AND our invisible disability makes it even harder to get help.I'm autistic. And I'm fighting to keep my Foodstamps… in the libertarian wilderness we like to call Indiana.Yay #Hoosiers.A side note…I've been homeless three times in my 70-year life. Manhattan once. Bloomington, Indiana twice.I have some idea just how bad this can get. 61 million disabled adults in America.It can get bad. Real bad.Add tag…Support the show

Let’s kick off Season 2 of #AutisticAF Out Loud podcast… by taking a risk.There’s not much research on sexual abuse of autistic children… much less adults.Maybe funding sources aren’t ready… yet… to stop trying to cure us. And study our lives.So here’s my story. Someone’s gotta start talking…I’ve gotta warn you it’s rough. Some was too hard for me to read. So I used an assistive voice synthesizer… Weirdly enough, it’s robotic voice moves me.If you’re autistic, love one, or especially parent one…You need to hear this story.But sexual assault is traumatic. If you experienced it… or love someone who has… this graphic episode could disturb you. In the US, the National Sexual Assault Telephone Hotline offers support at 1-800-656-4673. Day or night.
