Autism Acceptance Month – Day 25


I think everyone is familiar with the puzzle piece symbol and while I’m ok with autistic people reclaiming that for themselves as a different colour that isn’t blue, non autistic people using the puzzle piece makes me really uncomfortable

I like the rainbow infinity symbol but some LGBTQ+ autistics voted a concern about this and stated that maybe it would be better to use it for queer neurodivergent people instead, especially since the rainbow infinity symbol isn’t just for autistic people but for the whole ND community

As an LGBTQ+ autistic I’ve never minded it but I’m just one of hundreds. I would really like a symbol that’s just for autistic people though. Maybe black cat themed? Not that I’m biased at all…
