Unpopular Opinions, Neurotypicalism, and Gaslighting

Related to my last few posts, invalidating someone’s opinions or beliefs based on their neurotype is a form of gaslighting. In general, it makes them question the very essence of themselves. This is also an intersectionality issue, since neuroatypical people do have their sexual orientation and/or gender identity called into question.

Neuroatypical people are allowed to have strongly held opinions and beliefs, too, dammit!
