Even years from now they may mesh

More work on third chunk of Kharma part 12.

Ideas/threads to carry over into future stories pop up in my head as I edit along. I write them down in my little book for later. Bits for the next story or even the third or tenth story down.

Can’t stress enough to a new writers how important it is to carry a tiny note/sketch book. Things pop into you head at any time. For me it’s when my brain relaxes or is distracted, in meditative states. Listening to music, watching movies, reading, showering, or by water. Like David Lynch says, You gotta grab them. Write them down even if they’re not perfect. You never know what they can be later. Even years from now they may mesh with something else that could pop up later. 1+1=3

Went over final proof before publication on short story for Unwinnable Magazine. Yes, that was the short that I did many revisions on. “You Are Disturbing The Peaceful Mood I Am In” should be out in their May issue soon.

Oddly the editor wants me to send him an invoice for payment so he can remember to pay me. Which is fine and honest of him. Sometimes these editors forget to pay. Sometimes they never pay. So I will do that.

I discovered that Thomas the Tank Engine will release a new character with autism this summer which is cool. Then I thought, shit. Not for the character. For the fact that the vaccine people out there will put it down like they put down Sesame Street and their autistic character. How it’s bad to normalize, create acceptance and enlightment for autism, how parents shouldn’t be okay with their children being defective, and okay with doctors and the pharmaceutical companies making them that way.

Grrrr, poxy fuckers.

No. I’m not going to get into it.

Thomas is good. Thomas is good for autistic kids too with those big expressive faces. My son loved watching Thomas. God, the little bastard ran tracks through out the apartment and sped ten trains at a time. I had no place to walk with out tripping and stepping on them. We had all the DVDs and I had to watch that Alec Baldwin movie. I did like watching the episodes with George Carlin in them, though.

Still have the tracks and trains in storage. I should bring them out for my daughter to play with. She’s gonna be 4 this summer, she’s just about right for them.

Anyway, here is episode 3 of Stain Boy:

Since vaccines veganism, homosexuality, liberalism, and civil disobedience has increased

Ran into this article from NPR today about autism and vaccines:

Unfounded Autism Fears Are Fueling Minnesota’s Measles Outbreak

For the record my position on autism and vaccines:

I have found no reason to believe that vaccines causes autism based on all the studies done in the past and the ones that are still being done today.

But children are being loaded with so many vaccines!

Yes, they are. And I think they should be spaced out. I feel bad that my kids had to go through so many shots and they ran the risk getting sick due to said shots. But they didn’t.

You daughter has ASD. She got autism through vaccines.

No. I don’t believe that. Through DNA testing we have found abnormalities (lack of a better word) in my daughter leading us to believe that her autism is hereditary. My daughter received her autism from me (another blog post) or my wife most likely. And even if she didn’t. My son received almost the same amount of shots (7 year difference in age) and he doesn’t have autism.

Right now, there is no universal agreement on the cause of autism. But there is an universal agreement on what DOESN’T cause it. Studies funded mostly through government are still going on to find the answer. Me? I think it’s genetic/hereditery.

Since vaccines, autism has increased in the population.

Since vaccines you could say that veganism, homosexuality, liberalism, and civil disobedience has increased. Seriously it’s the law of averages. The population increases and so does it’s factors. More people are born and more people with autism are going to be born.

What about Dr. Andrew Wakefield and what he found in his study? He has Dr. in front of his name.

Seriously? Did you read the link? Why are people still bringing up this guy?

Many celebrities stand by the statement that vaccines cause autism. Jenny McCarthy! Even our current President. Um, Trump. Jenny McCarthy has been in Playboy, had her own sit-com that had been called by critics the funniest show since Lucy, and she has large breasts; large breast equal large brain. And President Chump, er, Trump knows a lot about autism. He can imitate stims! He is the sort of richest man in the world, he knows a lot about marriage, knows ratings, and how to get away with raping 13 year old girl with friends.

That is all true and makes for a strong case for their authority on autism. But one should not fall for the sales man of a cause. One should focus on the medical findings and listen to what their practitioners have to say about the issues. You wouldn’t go to those same people if you had cancer would you?

The government has created autism and slipped it into the vaccines to dumb down American citizens and…

Okay. The only one that is dumbing down anyone is themselves at this point. Go do your research. Read articles, pick up a book, volunteer your time, or make an autistic friend. Pretend it’s 1962 and you can’t catch skin darkening disease from a black man because he drank from the white water fountain.

I believe autism has been around a long, long time. Most likely many of the most brilliant minds in history had autism in one form (autism, ASD, Asperger’s) or another but human education/science just wasn’t there yet to categorize/recognize it. We humans can be slow on the ball.

Of course when I read these article what twists my nuts is how these individuals on the far right, and I know it’s the far right, pushes how humans with autism are nor NORMAL. My gut reaction is:

FUCK YOU!

Then my 2nd reaction is:

Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?

These people, the vaccine people, don’t want government to control what goes into children just like they don’t want the government to take their guns away. They don’t want to be control by their government. I get it. Neither do I. But they seem to take it to the level of fiction, a level of insanity to the point where the government is in control. I should know. I write fiction.

Why they need autism to scare the parents, I have no idea. It’s not a scary thing to have. Sure, each spot on the spectrum is hard on the parents and the person inside the body, but there is nothing EVIL or DAMNING about it. Nothing that we should risk our children’s life to measles or some other long dead disease from the middle ages.

The only vaccine for autism should be for the negative aspects of it not to eradicate it. Many wonderful things come from autism. I often have the silly thought that maybe it’s the next step in mental evolution if we can just get the crappy parts out of the way.

They scariest, the worst thing about autism, is facing the uneducated person in the world. The prejudice, the ignorance, the intolerance, the laughter, the mocking, the superiority, and the tisk tisk tisk, isn’t that a shame.

If they can find a vaccine for those people that would be swell.
