And then when they go to Washington DC and have conferences, without inviting us Autistics, and they continually won't let us speak.....you have an organizatio that, in my strong opinion, does NOT truly represent the Autistic community.
And then you have them saying that we are a crisis and a burden. That we are dumb, and even the R word.
They say that we will never have normal lives. That we will ruin the lives of our families. They seem to think it's a bad thing for us to be Autistic. That is all they want to think about.......and they still won't listen to US, the very ones they perport to represent.
Just my take.
And i, for one, feel that they need to be stopped from spreading their hateful campaign of fear, gloom and doom.
We are human beings, not blue puzzle pieces. We are alive. Very much alive. And we have ears that hear this hate.
It needs to stop.
