It’s that time of the year again. It’s that time that drives a number of autistic people off this grand invention called the Internet because others show up and speak out of turn.
It is Autism Awareness Month. It’s also Autism Awareness Week. And tomorrow is Autism Awareness Day.
But, I urge you, make this month, week, and day about the acceptance of autistic individuals. Accept their rights. Accept their wishes. Accept who they are.
It is the right of everyone to exist free from oppression.
Also, if you are supporting a campaign this month, there are many alternatives to Light It Up Blue run, managed, and supported by people near to and from within the actually autistic community.
You will see #LightItUpGold pasted across this blog and my Twitter account!
