The Stockholm Syndrome Symptomatology of Neurodiversity Militantism

I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in June 2017. As I wrote in the “About…” tab of my blog, “Over 50 years of a rather odd life, came to a sudden realisation, with all the clicks and cogs falling to their right places.” Little did I know at the time, that the sudden realisation … Continue reading The Stockholm Syndrome Symptomatology of Neurodiversity Militantism

Theoretical Philosophy, a Disclaimer…

Theoretical philosophy irreverently … Continue reading Theoretical Philosophy, a Disclaimer…

In this short … Continue reading Reflections on the Psychopathology of Demand Rejection and Avoidance
