All the autistic community wants is to be listened to and not be spoken over. Amplify our voices and express what the autistic community wants not what the NT think we need. Last year it was a dumpster fire. A lot of big names in entertainment were talking over us and deleting what we were saying. Here are two big examples of what it looks like!
Last year Nickelodeon made a facebook post in support of Autism Speaks. The autistic community spoke out and explained why Autism Speaks was bad. Instead of listening to the people affected by the harm, they deleted autistic voices. They deleted the post but like autistics do, screen shots were taken!
This year it was Different
Thank you for being patient with us 😊
