    If there is no word for the use of allistic actors mocking autistic people, then perhaps we should make one.

    The definition runs as such: 

    WORD, noun. The use of allistic actors to play the roles of autistic characters (though their neurotype is rarely confirmed onscreen), whose entire character development is based on an overly-exaggerated, mocking stereotype of societally-constructed ‘autistic behaviors’, or else played extensively for allistic pathos a la the ‘autistic angel’ trope. Such characters appear almost solely in heartwarming dramas, in which the allistic characters are rewarded for merely existing in the same societal sphere as autistic people, or else in FBI crime dramas, in which the autistic person is utilized as a ‘tool’ by the autistic characters. This phenomenon has been denied by both actors and showrunners, but critiqued extensively among the autistic community.

     person is utilized as a ‘tool’ by the autistic characters. Shouldn’t that be allistic?

    totally agree with the point btw. the number of times friends have compared me to sheldon ugh.

  5. When Van Gogh was a young man in his early twenties, he was in London studying to be a clergyman. He had no thought of being an artist at all. he sat in his cheap little room writing a letter to his younger brother in Holland, whom he loved very much. He looked out his window at a watery twilight, a thin lampost, a star, and he said in his letter something like this: “it is so beautiful I must show you how it looks.” And then on his cheap ruled note paper, he made the most beautiful, tender, little drawing of it.

    When I read this letter of Van Gogh’s it comforted me very much and seemed to throw a clear light on the whole road of Art. Before, I thought that to produce a work of painting or literature, you scowled and thought long and ponderously and weighed everything solemnly and learned everything that all artists had ever done aforetime, and what their influences and schools were, and you were extremely careful about *design* and *balance* and getting *interesting planes* into your painting, and avoided, with the most astringent severity, showing the faintest *acedemical* tendency, and were strictly modern. And so on and so on.

    But the moment I read Van Gogh’s letter I knew what art was, and the creative impulse. It is a feeling of love and enthusiasm for something, and in a direct, simple, passionate and true way, you try to show this beauty in things to others, by drawing it.

    And Van Gogh’s little drawing on the cheap note paper was a work of art because he loved the sky and the frail lamppost against it so seriously that he made the drawing with the most exquisite conscientiousness and care.
