Everyone Should Know…
Hmm. I guess here there’s a few points that I want to cover quickly:
- Autism Speaks is harmful to us, so please don’t light it up blue. Light it up red or gold.
- ABA is basically what conversion therapy is for gay people (I say this as someone who is gay)
- Autistic people prefer identity first language
- You should always listen to autistic people first and everyone else second
- A lot of autistic stereotypes aren’t true for a lot of autistic people, like not being able to understand sarcasm
There’s probably loads more that I’m forgetting but I have loads to do today so my head is in a planet of its own!!
Let me know what you’d add
