Well, the day we've been dreading finally happened. The U.S. Senate just overturned the Abortion rights of Roe Vs. Wade. There's been righteous outcry from far more eloquent people with higher stakes to lose who'd have more experience to run from. All I can do is post an early Carol Lay comic that was the basic building blocks of what would become her Story Minute. (Later revamped as Lay Lines)

One thing that struck me while researching sexual identity was that a large percentage of Autistics are part of the LGBTQ spectrum. So anything that directly affects people who think similarly to me is perceived as an attack on myself. Particularly since the so-called Gay Conversion "treatment" and Applied Behavior Analysis were both created by the same man.
When people's perception towards you is a vehement refusal to see you as having any value, save for what possible use you bring, they're likely to treat you as an piece of property. When parents would rather their own kid get killed than expose them to life-saving vaccines, that's a sign of them denying your existence. Wanting absolute control over a percentage of the population, neatly dividing gender into two privileged lanes.
That, and being touch-averse, I can understand the need to turn down unwanted advances. You shouldn't have to be forced into sexual situations against your will. Especially if you're not prepared. You shouldn't have to be coerced into taking extra responsibility before you're ready.
(Of course, the Supreme Court in their 'infinite' wisdom, felt that open-carry gun rights were more valuable than women's rights)
Anything that affects the U.S. flows up to Canada. 4 years of Trump was more than enough. I don't think I could tolerate more intolerance from him or his enablers who'd learn from his mistakes.
