I was willing to hold back from joking in public, to hold back to protect the campaign and everything that’s been created; as well as the hopes for the future which have never been stronger.
In hindsight it doesn’t help the community to say that there is something wrong with the way I communicate, that my humour is offensive, when it’s never been meant that way. That an autistic person’s natural way of communicating is invalid.
That I can’t do, plus I like my humour so I do want to keep it. I think it’s so important to have the communication differences better understood.
So tomorrow I will be posting about an Au-thentic comedy night that I will be helping to organise and host. The ‘Are you kidding?” Au-thentic comedy night will be in association with Breakneck Comedy Club in Aberdeen.
All my best and love
