Autistic Pride Day!!

Sunday is usually product review day, but today I want to do something different instead just for you. Since the month of June is Pride Month meaning acceptance, guidance, and so forth by today’s society. Many of us have faced challenges where others tend to shame and/or judge us due to our differences whether you have a disability or the choice of sexual orientation other than heterosexual. There is also hate-crime and discrimination that has taken place in today’s society from harassment to abuse (physically, mentally, verbally).

In honor of Pride Month, June 18th is Autistic Pride Day and also Father’s Day. I want to share my four reasons why I want to support autistic pride day:

  1. I want to be accepted
  2. I want others to understand me
  3. I want to help others who are going through the same crises
  4. I want to end discrimination towards people with certain disabilities

As you all may know, I have high functioning autism and I would like to come around with others who are facing these obstacles whether it is hate crime and/or discrimination. Do anybody you know have these similar form of autism whether it is Asperger’s Syndrome or Pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and still dealing with discrimination by your peers?

Acceptance is always the #1 key in the autism world. People in today’s society are unaware that autism is not curable, but can be treated with speech and cognitive therapy. We all need to be aware in our surroundings when you see other victims with autism being discriminated due to his/her actions believing we are in trouble with society.

Understanding is the #2 key in the autism world. People, nowadays, do not understand the challenges and obstacles we are facing in this society because we are consider “aliens” in their minds meaning we are being defeated by others by using these harsh words like “stupid”, “idiot”, and much worse “retarded”. The use of the “R” word by people who are not willing to understand and to be hateful. We are highly intelligent in an strange way and we also succeed in our successes without having to give up on our goals and achievements.

In closing, since June is pride month I decide I want to share my thoughts about the challenges we are facing in today’s society whether it is sexual orientation or any type of disabilities. Always remember accepting, understanding, supporting, and encouraging others not to discriminated because of his/her challenges. I want to end this with the quote by Amy Sequenzia, “Autism is life. I know. I live it every  day. And I am happy”.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is just one week from today and I am really thrilled about the gift ideas for the fathers and father figures in your lives. I know some of us did not grew up without fathers in our lives, but instead have father figures such as stepfathers, male family friends, teachers, and so forth. There are some gift ideas for the fathers in your lives, not just any regular gifts like a suit and tie.

  1. For those who love outdoor sports:

Many of the fathers or father figures in our lives would enjoy outdoor activities just for some bonding time with the children. Outdoor sports for example golf and fishing are essential whenever it is getting up early in the morning for a great spot with the children or meeting with friends at a golf course to practice golf.

2. Made by children in arts and crafts:

Arts and crafts are very essential for children with their creative side and impress their dads with their gifts to make it special without having to buy anything at the store (meaning going the less expensive route). For example, hand printing gifts made by children for a more creative route.

3. Other gift ideas for dads:

Going to stores to buy gifts for dads are not just buying ties for him, but a little bit more than just ordinary gifts. For example, tools (working on a woodwork, cars, etc.), balls (bowling, football, baseball, etc), watches, and so forth. These gifts can range from least expensive to more expensive especially for those who are on a tight budget and/or wanting to give him something at the last-minute.

There you have it some great father’s day gift ideas for the dads, dads-to-be, and the father figures in our lives. I hope these ideas are helpful and inspirational for you guys. I know finding gifts for father’s day can be somewhat hectic and also be expensive so that is why I am sharing these ideas for you to make your dads or father figures special. I want to wish all the fathers and father figures a happy early father’s day and remember June 18th is your special day!
