The second of April is arriving soon, and that means autism speaks light up blue campaign once again will be here, and I wanna explain why you should support #redinstead which are against autism speaks
for people who don’t know autism speaks is an autism charity group, their arent liked by most autistic people.
a few fast reasons as to why
for many years they claim only boys could be autistic, that’s why its light it up blue campaign because blue is a boy colour
they supported electro shock therapy for autism,
they made a campaign with PETA claiming milk gives autism
They also supported the idea that the vaccine gives autism
they are actively looking for a cure for autism, but that cure is making sure we are not born at all, by that I mean they put money into finding a way to see if a fetus is autstick so they can abort it.
and lastly they made this
I really recommend these two videos if you wanna know more, about why you shouldn’t support autism speaks I recommend watching these two videos.
Thanks for sharing and spreading awareness!
of course, as an autstick person, I feel its an importent thing to spread.
You should probably change the title a little bit to say “#redinstead do you support Autism Speaks”
I am still haunted by that “I Am Autism” advertisement for Autism Speaks. I think alongside all of the problems you mentioned, they’re so focused on the parents of autistic children, and never autistic kids. It’s always how we’re a burden on family, friends, teachers, etc. Some of the things that the parents have the nerve to say about/to their children (even inciting violence) in the ads is absolutely disgusting.
Right, and it’s funny cause their name is Autism Speaks, but yet they let everyone else speak about it.
the second video ask an autstick, she actually talk about autism speaks, is like a woman orginasation helping woman, and the only one who leads or advicate for it, is men.
