Quiet Hands

TW: Ableism, abuse 

Hands are by definition quiet, they can’t talk, and neither can half of these students…

(Behavior is communication.)

(Not being able to talk is not the same as not having anything to say.)

Just Stimming…

re-reblogging to add: in contradiction to the usual internet rule, DO read the comments.

they’re full of people saying, “i didn’t know it was like this. i’m going to stop saying ‘quiet hands’. i’m going to make sure i never do this to my children/students. i didn’t understand.”

people are basically decent. they just don’t know.

they don’t want to hurt us. they just. don’t. know.

this is acceptance. <3

(i’m not a hand-flapper myself. my stims are more ‘acceptable’ — touching fabric, tapping rhythms against my leg, ‘normal’-looking things that allistics also do when they’re deep in thought. and i wasn’t diagnosed until adulthood, so i wasn’t subjected to the abusive ‘treatment’ many autistics suffer. but i did get a whole lot of flack for not making eye contact, and responded by making too much eye contact, which was interpreted as challenging and defiant, and i was abused for that by teachers and bullied by other children. and i honestly believe, if they’d known why i was like that — if they’d known that for me, looking away didn’t mean i was lying or distracted, but that i was thinking, and staring into their eyes didn’t mean i was picking a fight, but that i’d been told to make eye contact and was doing my best, they would’ve been kinder to me. understanding is the best therapy.)

The comments are really interesting, and yeah, for once not-horrible.

I note a thing: There’s one comment from someone who can’t talk to someone while they’re flapping their hands. I have that problem sometimes! One of my friends tends to get flappy hands when she’s distressed, and I react to that about the way I react to very light touches I can barely feel, which is by freaking the fuck out. So. If she has flappy hands, I look away. Since she doesn’t actually care whether people are making eye contact, this works. Maybe it’s not perfect, but it’s a hell of a lot better than “quiet hands”.

I want a movie about a guy who runs for president and wins but then suddenly realizes that he doesn’t want to be president, so he just starts doing ridiculous things all the time trying to get impeached, but it NEVER WORKS because they always miraculously end up…
