Last week I had a corporation's internal magazine to translate. One of the interviewed workers cited a poem which has not been translated in my language.
So I sighed and translated it myself, with ”corporate quality” aka anything goes as far as the job gets done.
Now the client is praising the translation, and exceptionally wants to put my name next to it (it's not common in corporate translations).
MFW I'm now officially a poetry translator. :D

There was a local trans rights demonstration today, so of course I had to wear my uniform there.

Autistic People. So, new Research. Different social skills, not broken ones.
"In essence, what we are demonstrating for the first time is that autistic people's social behaviour includes effective communication and effective social interaction, in direct contradiction of the diagnostic criteria for autism. We have, for the first time, uncovered empirical evidence that there is a form of social intelligence that is specific to autistic people."
In other words, different social skills, not broken ones. We have our own social signalling and can co-operate and interact effectively....with each other. Likewise, non-autistic people can generally co-operate and interact effectively...with each other. But put one of each group together, and they both tend to misunderstand one another. They don't feel rapport with one another, that sense that you just 'click' with someone and understand them.
This isn't a new theory, of course. Dr Damian Milton has been discussing Double Empathy theory for a while now. https://kar.kent.ac.uk/62639/1/Double%20empathy%20problem.pdf
