I must cut into my scheduled ranting about atheist historical asshattery to bring you news from the World of Gozer!
Last Thursday, Gozer was biting herself in class to “see if she was real”. Not too far from left field for an Aspy kid, but weird as hell for a muggle, no? Gozer’s teacher rightly told Gozer that she was not allowed to bite herself, inasmuch as Gozer was nearly puncturing the skin (again, not too odd for an Aspy kid). Gozer, being Gozer, decided that if she couldn’t test herself for realness she was going to see if the little boy next to her was “real”.
This was not good.
There was a substitute in that day, and long story short Gozer wound up in AIM, which is also used as a sort of juvenile detention. Yes, my worst nightmare’s have come true.
BabyBro freaked out about Gozer being stuck in AIM. The Reality Fairy hit him with a sack of Reality Dust right in the face about what could happen to Gozer. Inasmuch as BabyBro does love his kids (he always puts his wife’s needs first so I’m still judgey about that), he asked my parents to come with him to the school to talk to the principal in order to avail himself of my parents social clout in their town. He wisely chose a day TaintFace was at work, because he know how she alienates people and he didn’t want to risk having her with them at the talk.
The first thing my Dad does? Point blank asks the principal in front BabyBro if the school is aware Gozer has Asperger’s syndrome. BabyBro had told Mom that “yes, the school knew” but TaintFace had told Mom “no, because Gozer doesn’t have Asperger’s; Betty Fokker is a big ol’ liar and we had her tested again and NOPE doesn’t have it” so my parents didn’t know WTF was up. The parents and I were biting our collective nails wondering if Gozer was or was not getting help. Thus, they decided to grab the bullshit by the horns and find out.
Guess what? TaintFace is a lying sack of lies! The school DOES know Gozer is an Aspy and is doing all they can, including an IEP and special protocols. The only reason the protocols were not followed in this one instance was because the substitute didn’t get the info. The school has promised that the info on Gozer will be prioritized next time. BabyBro was clearly in on the fact Gozer has Asperger’s because the principal was discussing what they had ‘talked about before’.
BabyBro was willing to cause family disruption to ‘defend’ his wife from the consequences of her own twatwaffle behavior but was not as willing to do so when it came to the kids and their school. That makes me happy. It’s lip-curl-worthy that he protects TaintFace in the family even when he is as aware as everyone else that she is in the wrong, yet I am counting his intervention at the school as a win for humanity and a reminder of why I still love my BabyBro.
So, to recap: I am the devil because I got Gozer tested (with permission) for Asperger’s and she had it and I didn’t put up with TaintFace’s bitch-fit about it afterwards, which morphed into TaintFace vehemently claiming Gozer didn’t have Aspy’s as they had her retested with the codicil that I could never see Gozer again until I apologized for ‘being mean’ to TaintFace, which wrecked Christmas for the kids and my parents but TaintFace didn’t care and BabyBro defended his wife. HOWEVER, it turns out I was right all along and BabyBro knows it and Gozer is getting help at school and the only person in the family who thinks TaintFace looks like anything other than knuckle-dragging, pig-ignorant trash for doing this shit is TaintFace.
Meanwhile, Gozer is STILL trying to convince my mom to help her lie to TaintFace and see me in secret (which we cannot do because teaching a kid to lie about ‘secrets’ and hide things from her parents is something child-sex predator’s do and we don’t want Gozer’s pump to be primed with the idea of secret-keeping). Gozer is suffering because her mother is a cuntmonkey, and this makes me unhappy.
But on the bright side the school is aware of Gozer’s autism and is reacting accordingly for the most part.
The whole thing makes me weary.
