BEING AUTI || Repetitive

A lot of autistic people have repetitive/ritualistic behaviors, and every one of them has different mannerisms compared to the other. Some repetitive behaviors can be harmless, some can be a little severe that it causes them to hurt themselves (such as scratching at skin). You can see that this is not all of Tim’s behaviors, mostly main ones; some that you have seen him do in the previous comics if you look back.

You can see in panel 4 there’s another hinted mannerism where he tugs his tie too hard at times when he’s very uneasy, he could accidentally choke himself a little which is why Evan makes sure to stop him right away. Some repetition can be considered as stimming depending on the person with autism; something that helps them to relax but that will be explained later in another comic.

Happy Asexual Awareness Week!

A wonderful someone asked if I could make something for this week, and it just so happens that I’ve been planning to create this little comic for Graham’s confession. He’s actually demisexual, but he’s more on the asexual spectrum than sexual; knowing that being ace or demi has been the underrated circle of pans, bis, polys, aros, shadowed by people outside the lgbtq community and sometimes.. within the community.

It’s very important to know that everyone is valid as long as you’re a decent human being, treating others with the love and respect they deserve.
