I'm Not Drunk, I'm Autistic

By Nera Birch
Come one, come all, and hear the tales of the Autistic Pinup! What I lack in social skills, I make up for with tattoos, love, and a whole lot of weed. Have you heard the quote, “When you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism?” Well, I’m here to prove that right! Join me as we explore the lore of autism.
