The Agents of L.U.S.T.

Or, how our friends and family have my autistic son's back.

L.U.S.T. The League of Unrepentant Straw Thieves. A grassroots, volunteer-only organization dedicated to a single mission:

Swiping drinking straws to support my son’s straw habit.

That's my most recent BlogHer post. For those who are stimmy and/or obsessive, and the people who love them.


  1. Hi Squid,
    I don't THINK I've commented before but I wanted to say that I have two boys ages 5 & &, neither of whom have special needs. that being said you have helped me immensley in teaching my kids how to deal with people who aren't the same as they are. I just thought I'd tell you that the things you write here have made a difference in my and my kids lives.
    thank you.

  2. Jen, thanks for both reading and paying attention. I consider parenting blogs in general to be part of my ongoing education as a mom, don't you?


Respectful disagreement encouraged.
