I will be frank, and brief, about this. I do not publish every non-spam comment I get. Do not get me wrong, I publish all of the ones that are positive, like the majority, or those that are constructive if disagreeable. Sometimes, I will even allow publication of those I find reprehensible so I can pick them to pieces in response. But ones that have no point and basically exist only to say “I am automatically right, you are automatically wrong” or the like, I look at enough in order to identify before I throw them in the trash where I never see them again.
There is a point about this journal, this site, that passives apparently do not get. Before I began writing this article, I was writing my impressions concerning the film X-Men: First Class. I have it playing before me as I write now. Young Erik has just destroyed the inside of Sebastian Shaw’s office whilst screaming in rage. I think that is a good place to start. So many people who write things about the universe of the X-Men write crap about how evil Magneto supposedly is, but have you ever stopped to wonder about how Professor X looks to him?
Yes, that was a veiled way of asking you if you have ever stopped to wonder how you look to me.
In the latest chapter in Blizzard Entertainment‘s dog shit story in World Of Warcraft, the idiot thug whom Thrall has moronically left in charge of the Horde has repaid the favours that Jaina Proudmoore has done for his kind by using a powerful magical artefact to destroy her town. Now, the idiot thug in question is so poorly written as to not even have the benefit of any reason to think he is the good guy. But the real question is when one looks at it through the eyes of a child who will never get to see their mother or father again because of how the efforts at moderation have been repaid think. How does Jaina Proudmoore look to them at this point? Or the idiot thug who was annoying when first heard of and even more so now? Or the limp-wristed dickhead who clearly has never been told a fundamental rule of Dwarvish politics? (Specifically, that when a King abdicates rather than dies, he is to a great degree responsible for any actions his successor enacts whilst he is still alive.)
Now, mix all of these things together, and you might have some idea of how you look to me when you try to tell me that so called “person first” language is acceptable, or that you being the parent of an autistic child somehow means my view of actually being autistic is not worth anything. You look ignorant. You look stupid. You look like vermin. As I keep saying, you had best pray that one of my kind that has not been badly mistreated to a similar extent does not suddenly find himself with the ability to manipulate matter at will.
This, of course, is the reason why Autism Speaks (For Ignorant Normies) have never attempted to address us directly. They know how we look to them. So they attempt to look nice and respectable to the people who do not know us. And if you try to tell me that your child is autistic and needs a cure, then guess what? You do not know us.
So Autism Speaks (For Ignorant Normies) appeal to the ignorant and the unknowing. Because their very survival depends on people who do not know us. And when those unknowing give them money to further their efforts to destroy us, Autism Speaks (For Ignorant Normies) pat themselves on the back and commend themselves on a job well done. The cognitive doublespeak continues unabated.
Amazon.com, that, in a nutshell, is why you got an angry message from me stating that having a celebrity roast to raise money for Autism Speaks upsets me on a level that compares well with how upset Holocaust survivors get when confronted with Holocaust denial. Oh, I saw the discussion on your boards, and I even read some of the comments from the unknowing. Which is why I want to impress upon you a few facts about Autism Speaks For Ignorant Normies.
First, controversy is the wrong word. Controversy implies that there is a side to the argument that has equal merit compared to the accepted norm and challenges it at its very core. The belief that people who possess an inherent structural mutation in their brain that compels them to approach cognitive processes in a non-standard manner should be exterminated like cockroaches does not challenge the accepted norm. It is the accepted norm. Even today, after the supposed victories of civil rights movements on the behalf of races, sexes, or those who are caught between examples of either, it is the accepted norm. Whilst I cannot personally say that I would be all that keen to remain intellectually retarded or living with Down’s Syndrome (or cystic fibrosis, or diabetes, or asthma, or pick your or), I can tell you that history has demonstrated one very sad thing about Humanity. They need us more than we need them.
Another fact that you need to know is that Autism Speaks For Normies are fundamentally dishonest. Video exists of its leader stating before a government committee of some sort, telling people in positions of decision-making power that she is not aware of opposition to her little Holocaust Revival fan club. The only way for that to be true is if she never reads her mail, watches television, attends any of the rallies she organises, or looks at YouTube. You cannot swing a dead cat on YouTube without hitting someone who has made or commented on a video opposed to Autism Speaks For Normies’ party lines.
Last, for now, is that autism is not a health issue, like I am sure Autism Speaks For Normalistic Jackasses has presented it to you. It is a Human rights issue. You may have read on this here site comparisons between recognition of the rights of black Americans (or indeed, Americans of any other race other than sheet-white) and recognition of the rights of the autistic. The comparison is an apt one. Not because normies are putting signs up all over their premises saying “normals only” or similar, but because they have found ways of doing so without being blatant. Amazon, Autism Speaks For Normies tried to do that with you.
Anyway, on to more relevant matters.
Whilst the previous century has seen leaps and bounds in scientific and technical knowledge, conservatism both in the governmental structure and at the funding level has arrested that. I will be blunt about this. The attempts to halt stem cell research mean that unless they stop, the cures for cancer, diabetes, asthma, and dozens of other ailments that cost society dearly will not happen within my lifetime. If they ever do. Not only do we need a change in the way people think about Human rights, we need a change in how people think about science and ethical behaviour. Because if you are going to insist on every child being born in spite of an acute oversupply of Humans, then denying them cures for things that may well kill them very slowly is just plain cruel.
I did not arrive at all of these things that I do not merely believe, but know, yesterday. On some level, they have always been with me because my observations and my reactions to those observations compelled these things toward me.
During one scene in Die Hard 2, a SWAT team member asks what turns out to be a terrorist, “hey, asshole, what do I look like to you?”. What passives look like to me is a reflection of what they tell me. They expect me to believe them when they tell me that they themselves are autistic. When they expect me to use their filthy person-first language in the bargain, they are basically telling me that they have never had to struggle with getting people to stop hurting them and being deliberately misheard. They are telling me that they fail to realise the sheer lack of room for compromise when one is fighting for their own right to exist. They are telling me that they do not understand that when you are fighting for your own survival, slapping your enemy’s face as opposed to blowing his upper half off with a cannon is acceptable.
In The Langoliers, Stephen King wrote a scene in which the blind girl who is on the flight in order to get an operation that may allow her to see tells her companion on the trip that she saw herself and her fellow passengers through his eyes. After a fashion, King means this pretty much literally. We all look like monsters to that man, the little blind girl tells her chaperone.
Normies, their organisations like Autism Speaks For Nazi-wannabe Normies, and the people who think they are worthy of an inch of ground, all look like monsters to me. You have only yourselves to blame for that.
