Learn how to raise and support autism awareness with Matthew McConaughey’s new Kiehl’s partnership
This unbalanced reporting has got to stop in publications. If you speak about autistic people, include us. We have 70 million strong population and the #actuallyautistics recognize Autism Speaks as a hate group — where are the autistic adults at? Come find us at #REDinstead and learn about our community and culture. We are a people – not a pathology, not a tragedy, not a vaccinated monster or hidden or lost. Get real information by and from real autistics — including autistic mothers of autistic kids. Get got this parenting thing down a bit easier (like minds and all) and would love some NT allies to help bridge this gap of misunderstanding. Autistic kids have a right to a future without the blue light of hate. We are a minority and a people. #nothingaboutuswithoutus #IAmAutisticandIVote #autisticandproud
Autistics Against Autism Speaks | A Civil Rights Movement
In 2005 Autism Speaks was founded to find a “cure” for Autism. The organization launched a massive wave of Fear Porn-styled advertising to raise an incredible amount of money in a very short amount of time.
#fact | Autism is a brain neurotype – not a disease. It can’t be cured. #AutisticandProud
#fact | The only “cure” for Autism is a genetic-marker test during pregnancy. This would result in the same “cure” society has for Down Syndrome: Abortion. This will lead to Autistic Genocide. #WeAreWorthy #NotBetterDeadThanDisabled
#fact | The only other “cure” for Autism would be complete human extinction.
#fact | The largest portion of Autism Speaks donations were funneled into research. Only 4% went to supporting existing Autistic children and families. Autism Speaks, until October 2016, main goal was genocide. Now the language has been changed to “solutions.” #supportnotcure
#fact | Autism Speaks refuses Autistics to participate in leadership and have zero Autistics on their board. #nothingaboutuswithoutus
This video is an attempt to more clearly portray and explain through authentic Autistic Voices the true history of our people in the shadow of the Autism Speaks machine.
