{February 12, 2009}   Why Autism Speaks Doesn’t Speak For Me

With a name like “Autism Speaks” you would think Autistics actually are expressing their views and wants. Wrong. Autism Speaks used to have a horrible video up with a lady saying she would have driven off a bridge with her Autistic child if she didn’t have a “normal” child too.  Frankly I would prefer to be alive, not driven off a bridge by a psycho mother.  I really don’t see what gives them the right to call themselves “Autism Speaks” when they rarely invovle Autistic people in their going ons. So please, don’t support them. Try the Autism Society of America that is actually helpful and kind to Autistics.
