Autistics Against Autism Speaks: Autism Acceptance 2017, by Alex McTyre

Published on Mar 30, 2017

For the past 7 years every April there has been an event known as World Autism Awareness Month and usually it doesn’t bear well with many of us Autistics. It is time for us Autistics to take back Autism awareness month and turn it into Autism acceptance month to fight for a progressive future for not only Autistics, but disabled people too!

Reblog, share, copy-and-paste this post forward to help Alex get heard. #peervoice

When Autism Speaks routinely dehumanizes Autistic people for personal gain, silence is NOT an option. 

Speak up and be a catalyst for change. Take action and protest through social media and/or in-person at Autism Speaks walks. Together we will be heard.

Help educate sponsors of Autism Speaks — they need to know they are funding a hate group that hurts the very people they claim to help, and refuse to include Autistics involvement.

#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
