Ask a 2e (#Actually2e)

I want to start a hashtag trend similar to #actuallyautistic. I want to show that being 2e is not the end of the world or a fault. "Exceptional" means "unusual, not typical" and "unusually good, outstanding." Twice-exceptional self advocates, this is your chance to shine! Shed light on the topic. Describe your experiences. Vent about ignorant teachers. Share tips, tricks, and lifehacks. Spread awareness of twice-exceptionality all over Google+, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, Digg, Instagram, Hulu, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and all other forms of social media. There's also an Ask a 2e blog part. This is when you let people ask your questions about being 2e and answer them in a subsequent post. Be sure to link back in the next post!

How to Join the Movement
Make a post tagged #Actually2e and post about your 2e experiences! I know you're lurking out there, so stop lurking and get in the light where people can see you! *friendly shove*

What if I'm Not 2e?
Don't worry! You can still join the movement by liking, commenting, sharing, re-tweeting, and otherwise making sure people see the #Actually2e movement. 

Got any questions about the 2e experience? Comment below and I'll answer them!

But, as with anything, there's caveats and stipulations.
  • I will not mention my family members by name, if at all.
  • Questions fall under my comment policy.
  • All profanity will be deleted. 
  • If you are an anonymous commenter, I will credit you as "Anonymous" during question credits unless you state otherwise.
  • My answers are from my perspective as a self advocate. I apologize in advance for any biased answers.
  • I am not responsible for injuries or losses resulting from my advice.
So go ahead, ask away! There's more harm in withholding curiosity than there is in expressing it.

  1. What is it like to be a 2e in school? Does it make learning easier or more difficult?


Comment! I won't know what you have to say unless you say it.
