Evolution of Eve | I’m Autistic and Proud (poetry/prose)

American Badass Activists

By Eve Hinson (almost Reiland)

I’m Autistic and proud

Not afraid to talk about it outloud

And why would I fear sharing that I like me?
All of me, especially this neurodiverse brain of me?

I’m savant with creativity, alive with visual language,
forget the super highway — this brain is an information constellation,
technical ancestor, internet goddess, pattern finder and seeker
keyboard warrior and new media memory keeper.

I don’t give a fuck about sports or square root,
but let’s talk HTML, Social media, incredible hair and . . .
Hot damn, just not politics.

At least not until we find the concentric overlap
of neurotypical and autistic, and define
the shared spectrum of communication
Before we debate this kind of shit.

I’m Autistic and proud
