Autistics Against Autism Speaks | A Civil Rights Movement

I’m Eve Hinson, Autistic Founder of AmericanBadassAdvocates.org. Our goal is peer-led initiatives for neurodiversity.

I ask before you report on Autism Speaks and “everything they do for Autistic kids” this April, you get the whole story. Actual Autistics need to be heard. We are human and we have value. We speak for ourselves. Please listen and help us be heard.

This is a civil rights movement for neurodiversity acceptance.

Long Version

Autistics Against Autism Speaks | A Civil Rights Movement

Greetings,

I’m Eve Hinson, Autistic Founder of AmericanBadassAdvocates.org. Our goal is peer-led initiatives for neurodiversity. American Badass has joined the Autistic Civil Rights Movement and protest the hate group Autism Speaks. (#boycottAutismSpeaks & #RedInstead)

I ask before you report on Autism Speaks and “everything they do for Autistic kids” this April, you get the whole story. Actual Autistics need to be heard, and #LightItUpBlue month is oppression and diminishes the value of Autistics in our communities. We are not a disease. We are human, and we have value.

What could possibly be wrong with Autism Speaks?

Autism Speaks routinely dehumanizes Autistic people for personal gain. This organization is not what people think.The blue puzzle piece does not represent who we are.

Why?

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.

#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 would create an Autistic Genocide.

#fact | The only other “cure” for Autism would be complete human extinction. Autistics have always existed, and we’ll always exist.

#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 a cure. Now they have changed the language to say “solutions.”

#fact | Autism Speaks refuses Autistics to participate in leadership and have zero Autistics on their board. #nothingaboutuswithoutus

Autistics and Autistic children deserve to be included in society, represented in our culture and seen having a positive impact on communities too. Autism Speaks promotes an Autistic Apocalypse that is going to spread and bankrupt the world.
