Tries to be an aspec 101 but neither wants to engage deeply (because readers apparently wouldn't want to read that?) with any topic nor serve as a vehicle to any larger conversations or resources. Ultimately, feels more like a vehicle to their podcast than anything else 🤷‍♀️

(To me, the Harry Potter sentence is deeply funny (haha scary) because it reveals a real misunderstanding of what they've set up in that section on evaluating media with aspec lenses.)

Really interesting and informative even if I was primarily drawn to it from a desire to learn more about cis-centered applications of HRT rather than, say, better understand options for my health. That being said, it is definitely fatphobic at points and is almost laughably dismissive of Eastern medicine, "We don't even know what [insert Eastern medicine] is, but we're glad someone studied it" like lol
