Group resource list

  Are you writing for a character/culture/ethnicity/group that you yourself is not a part of?  

Consume minority culture. The ones THEY make.
Tikal, on how to write about other groups.
  This article is a list of authors and other resources that belong to different groups you might be interested in learning more about, for your worldbuilding and writing.   Also be aware that no group possesses a hive mind, there will be differing views within groups so be sure to read from as many perspectives and opinions as possible within the group that you are studying.  
Do you have links to resources that you think should be added to this list? Want to suggest more categories?   Contact BasicDragon #2520 on Discord or by email: [email protected]   Please write "GROUP RESOURCE LIST" in the subject header.   If you haven't gotten a response within 24H poke me in the comment section of this article. (I check WA more often than my mail)

Autism Spectrum Disorder


  A comic strip explaining the autism spectrum. Read it before anything else.  
Autism Speaks is an autism advocacy organization in the United States that sponsors autism research and conducts awareness and outreach activities aimed at families, governments, and the public.
However, they spend more of their money on advertisements than on helping actual people with autism. Their advertisements are fearmongering the families of people with autism, claiming that autism is a demon that can be exorcized. Most people with autism do not approve of Autism Speaks.
 
The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which autistic people enjoy equal access, rights, and opportunities.
This is a better organization.
