Things “social skills” courses actually need to teach

autisticfandomthings:

  • How to set and enforce boundaries.
  • How to say no.
  • How to say no without making people think you hate them.
  • How to refuse sex without getting beaten up.
  • How to detect and obey other people’s boundaries.
  • How and when to disclose disability.
  • How to comfort people.

Things social skills courses actually teach:

  • Passing .
  • Heteronormativity.
  • Gender norms.
  • How to survive if you are magically transported to the world of american high school teen movies.
