I am an activist, more than a advocate, and certainly not a token Autistic. I do the things I do in order to promote Autistic community within the whole community. Many people need to understand that the organization, Autism Speaks promotes eugenics to erase Autistics from history when their have been many Autistics throughout history before they even existed. Many researchers have an agenda too, to eliminate Autistics. I am exhausted to try convincing researchers who basically don’t fully understand the implications some of their studies they perform, may hurt us. No one wants to be researched about who they are, and certainly no one can make groups of people the same as a certain majority group of people they want to make as the standard. Life is not an objectified thing that we can just buy, there is more to life than just money. Money we earn is an excellent material to use to buy the necessary things we need for the current world we live in. The current world we live is very expensive now. Independence is great to have, but we need to understand that Interdependence is more important since we all need the support too. By researching groups of people to make them the same as everyone else, we are not accepting diversity as it stands and not supporting people.
Many people do not understand Autistic culture, like many people did not understand other cultures in the past who they tried to eliminate. Evolution is happening now as we Autistics revolutionize the world. It’s time for society to change. It’s important to know that the golden rule to always remember, when you want change,
speak up, and change the perception of society you do not like. For example, this is why many Autistics are speaking up to change the perception many people in society have right now about how they feel about us. This is the reason why the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network which began in 2006 is continuing to strengthen the movement. This is why we need to strengthen the legacies of many Autistics who have died in the past too like the recent passing of Avonte Oquendo whose legacy to bring everyone as one community continues on.
Society is built up by all of us and we need to all understand why having Autistic community within the larger community is so important. Many Autistic people today are trying to create a more inclusive society which will be accepting and tolerating as a means of making a difference. We need to create a learning environment for everyone, instead of a lot of people trying to kill each other both figuratively and literally. I am tired of hearing about stories in the news of people doing bad things to others like that. Everyone matters!!! We need to bring emotions to a balance so their is acceptance and tolerance of each other. Part of what we do today is to remember that to have a peaceful world, we need to allow everyone’s voices to be heard and listened to without people needing to raise their voice louder. When is everyone going to understand this? We need change, that is so important to society right now. We need to see in the world now the lifting of the barriers that are blocking many people from achieving their dreams, allowing everyone to live their life the way they know they can with love and acceptance.
Evolution has changed many things in our past in regards to living cells. A single living cell in Human beings for instance has changed many aspects of our mind and body. Our brains have changed considerably over centuries since the beginning of the human race. History has shown the brain to have changed the most. The brain and mind changes all the time. We are learning many things in our minds every day. Our minds have experienced changes in our lives which then experience changes in our behavior. Many people have recognized very recently there are two types of minds in the world, A Neurotypical mind and an Autistic mind. A neurotypical mind has many of the instincts and social behaviors in which an Autistic mind does not. An Autistic mind has quite the opposite of the mind of a Neurotypical. An Autistic mind has to try and adapt to the Neurotypical mind because the Autistic mind is not accepted as much in this world. The Autistic mind thinks about different survival tactics. My Autistic mind which is on the other side of the spectrum has observed many different Neurotypicals and their behavior. The observations I have noticed in my life about Neurotypical society in men and women are the social aspects of their behavior and the instinctive feelings they have. For instance, the instincts they get at home, at work, and with their friends. Neurotypicals know how to change their instincts as soon as they leave one area such as home to another area such as work. Home and work are two different areas of a person’s life. At home a person may act one way, but at work they will act differently.
I know you may feel I need to explain more, and I will explain further tonight…
have a good day,
