This is who I am.
We love you for your brains, only not the way zombies love brains.
Everyone's brain is wired in a unique way. It's what makes you YOU. And your mind is our favorite part of you. It's what makes you our smart masses. So here at ThinkGeek HQ, we're all about embracing the differences in neurological configurations. Whether you are an autistic person or a "neurotypical," you have ADHD, are bipolar, whoever you are, whatever unique configuration of neurons makes you you, we think you're pretty awesome, just the way you are (both the Bruno Mars and the Billy Joel versions).
"Neurodiversity" with a brain for the "o" and a heart for the "v" in pink and white on a black, 100% cotton t-shirt.
In April of 2012, 100% of the proceeds from this shirt were donated to ASAN, The Autistic Self Advocacy Network, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by and for Autistic people. In addition, we're giving them $1 from each sale during May and June of 2012. Their mission statement:
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. Drawing on the principles of the cross-disability community, ASAN seeks to organize the community of Autistic adults and youth to have our voices heard in the national conversation about us. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which Autistic people enjoy the same access, rights, and opportunities as all other citizens. We hope to empower Autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community. Nothing About Us, Without Us!
