OPINION: Tony Hughes' story in Netflix's 'Dahmer' illustrates a tragic lack of connectivity for neurodivergents
Michael Friant, Contributing Writer • November 15, 2022
People who are neurodivergent often discover that finding connectivity is almost impossible due to the ingrained ableism within our society. As a result, we tend to accept human connections wherever we can find them, and this unfortunately sets us up to be taken advantage of physically, mentally, emotionally or even psychologically. A perfect, yet tragic, example of this is the depiction of Tony Hughes’ encounter with Jeffery Dahmer in the popular Netflix series, Dahmer.

Humans of the Dub: End of Year Traditions
January 6, 2021
What makes me happy now is making Christmas special for others. It’s not just about getting gifts but giving people things and seeing them react to that. I have a sister, I like to spoil her, and it’s a great time to give back to my parents. As kids we couldn’t give our parents things and now that I’m more mature and can afford things, I like to show my appreciation for them by making it a nice Christmas.
