The Autistic Alien

My name is CJ. As of December 2019, I am 28 and use she/her pronouns. I consider myself to be an activist and care deeply about the intersectional rights of human beings. I've created this blog because I felt that there is still much stigma and misinformation about autism, and a lack of resources for autistic adults. I was diagnosed with Asperger's (now a subcategory of Autism Spectrum Disorder in the DSM-V) at age 12 and have come a long way since then to understand myself and others. Other than blogging, I enjoy reading, adventuring, and being around animals.
