I Prefer Blunt People

I thought it was just a personal preference

Created by author

When I say I prefer blunt people, I’m referring to the characteristics of being forthright, straightforward, and candid — not slang for a joint you smoke.

This is sort of a personal preference, but the more I learn about myself, the more I learn these things are not that simple.




We write about ADHD, Autism, twice exceptionality, neurodiversity, parenting, advocacy, and education. We’re unique, just like everybody else.
