Anna’s Recent Updates

“I know all the tricks because I study people. I’m the mimic, the lyrebird. They created me.”
Anna Whateley, Peta Lyre’s Rating Normal

“But I don’t need to get it right all the time; no one else does. Lyrebirds don’t just mimic. They make their own songs too, and dance to their own beats.”
Anna Whateley, Peta Lyre’s Rating Normal

“No therapist teaches you about that. They just want you to know how to look neurotypical. Not to know how to vote or make your world different so you don’t look so wrong in the first place.”
Anna Whateley, Peta Lyre’s Rating Normal
