Ended up reading a lot about autism and narrative today. I always go into it thinking I’m gonna want to read a bunch of articles and learn some stuff, then I just end up getting frustrated with the deficit language in the literature. And how on one hand, all the autistics be like, “there’s nothing wrong with our empathy or Theory of Mind, you fucking raviolis!” but then there’s this entire literature on it because an entire generation or two of grad students have built a career testing this hypothesis in every conceivable domain and just. Rrrrrgh. People find what they’re looking for. Usually, at least in social sciences.

Anyhow, one day down. *whew*
