AUTISM SPEAKS DOES NOT SPEAK FOR ME
I guess it's Anger Day(tm).
I thought Autism Speaks couldn't do worse than comparing my child to a fatal car accident.
Turns out I was wrong:
I posted the following comment:
I will not be intimidated by "Autism Speaks." Autism Speaks does NOT speak for me, and it does not speak for my brilliant and beautiful son.
This is a horrible, manipulative advertisement. My family refuses to be an object of your fear, your pity, and your ignorance.
My son is not a car accident. And he is not a malevolent monster out to destroy my marriage, either.
Let people on the autistic spectrum speak for themselves. STOP SPEAKING FOR THEM.
