Introducing We Are Like Your Child

We Are Like Your Child is a new, exciting blog collective of Autistic (capital A) bloggers, with the occasional allistic disabled poster.

It's for the stories that so often aren't shown in the media: those where we have difficulties and yet we problem solve creatively, we live with our disabilities rather than the whole "in spite of" and overcoming thing. Or the stopping and dripping in tragedy. This is a slice of reality from Autistic people.

It'll be a once weekly blog (or more. Maybe. But once weekly for sure) & I'm sure many people who read here would like to check it out. It's highly unlikely to be as firey as here--it's just a place where we can show things that won't make it into a "Success In Spite of Autism!" type anthology, nor are they the stuff of woe is me human interest stories, nor are they inspiration porn. It's just that yeah, we do have difficulties, yeah, we can work around some of them, and  yeah, we're people even if we can't do some stuff.

So. Some of you might be interested in that. People who find here too political might too. Cuz we are like your child, and that's a good thing for all involved.

I've added the new blog to the autism blogs directory. Would it be okay to reblog your (this) blog post on the directory to draw attention to the new blog?
