Tonight I decided to check out redbubble to see if there were any new interesting autism/neurodiversity related products up. I figured, it’s basically April, if anyone’s posting anything new it’s probably up now… And so I went, and searched “autism”. Of course, you probably know the things I ended up with, but in just the first page I found such amusing results I had to share.
Well, I am proud of myself often, but everyday is pushing it.
An interesting new spin on “differently abled”… like, except even worse? It’s like people who say “don’t call yourself autistic” and then refuse to make any accommodations, but in shirt-form.
Not just one puzzle piece, I’m actually made of puzzle pieces!
So ok, this one actually says accept & understand, not just “be aware
autistic people people with autism exist”… but it’s not actually a blue shirt!? So… the person wearing it is not wearing blue for autism. Also, I just noticed the puzzle-ception going on here.
I can’t really imagine anyone wearing this mess on a shirt, but I’ve seen this phrase/style before so I guess someone’s buying it. This is actually the better of the two on this one page of results. I was going to put this in just to annoy Mel, but as I was counting the fonts she walked in and saw me squinting at the computer. She walked over and looked at my screen, and all I said was “6?” and she immediately started counting the fonts too. So, clearly we belong together ❤
Anyway…. now that I’ve laughed at some autism-parent designs, I also thought it would be nice to link to some better designs, too.
By EWAutismLibrary — They also have one that reads “noncompliant af”, and other cute self-advocacy / acceptance designs.
By Amythest Schaber — Another shop with lots of other cute autism, neurodiversity, and disability activism-related designs, and well-done too 🙂
By Tabitha Fringe Chase — Mostly this caught my eye because it’s funny, and actually looks nice too 😀
By Erin Human — lots of cute hand-drawn designs, and reminds me that I should grab another “celebrate neurodiversity” sticker.
