Recently, I had occasion to comment on a story about one politician looking to make a name for himself by using Avonte Oquendo‘s name to push for Track The Autie laws.
These laws are very frightening to me, not just because they have the potential to bring abused children back to their abusers as fellow activists have pointed out. Because Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes do everything in their power to erase the distinction between autistic child and autistic adult, there is no reason for autistic adults to believe that these laws will not result in police units coming to our doors and saying “you has the autismz! you gotta have this tracking device!” or similar.
This leads me to a collection of statements that I wish to make to the parents who proclaim this fool Schumer and Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes as heroes. In no particular order:
- Nobody thinks the Nazis are heroes today. Nobody will think that of you in seventy years, either.
Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes is led by the patriarch and matriarch of a rich family that has interests in such corporations as General Electric. At some point in recent history, the matriarch stated that she wants to see a world in which the word “autism” is only read about in history books.
I started with those two things because I want to cut you off in advance if you wish to invoke Godwin’s Law. Godwin’s Law states that in an internet argument, the first side to invoke comparison to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis automatically loses. However, Godwin forgot to add the following footnote: this law does not apply when the comparison is not only valid, but apt. The Nazis not only had ample support from big business groups, but they wished to remove every group they took exception to from the face of the planet.
When one is told that their child is autistic, they face a variety of choices, all of which have direct consequences for the child. The one most pertinent here is how the adult chooses to see the child.
Autistic self-advocates and groups such as the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network have a lot of variations in detail, but the basics are pretty universal. A challenge has been set before you. You can educate yourself, educate your child, and stand up for your child when it is needed. Doing these things will result in your child growing to adulthood with confidence in themselves and the ability to face challenging situations.
Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes’ rhetoric essentially promotes the belief, or ideal in their eyes, that autistic people regardless of age are universally children and cannot be expected to grow beyond that. To call this a damaging view to have of your child is an understatement.
Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes wants you to think of your child as incapable and dependent. This is the classic example of self-fulfilling prophecy, as treating children in this manner results in incapable, dependent adults.
- Shifting the goalposts only makes your arguments look more asinine.
There is another major schism between Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes and aware autistic people. Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes is a typical example of American “problem solving”. That is, they do not go looking for answers (which we would be happy to provide). They go looking for someone, or in this case something, to blame.
First it was vaccines, general. But when autistic self-advocates asked them for backup of these beliefs, they shifted to a chemical compound that is used in the construction of vaccines. But a comment I saw repeated in an email to me tried to tell me it was all the radiation from portable devices that was to blame for autism. So, please, curebies, which is it?
Every theory you have offered thus far to explain the natural state of our grey matter has been spurious or at worst fraudulent. Andrew Wakefield, he of the vaccine theory, was struck off the medical register in England. Curebies piss and moan that this is because of a conspiracy, but this is made lie by the fact that when one is an M.D., getting struck off the register is actually a pretty difficult thing to accomplish.
Andrew Wakefield is no longer legally a doctor because a proper investigation of his research has revealed that his research was fraudulent. Unlike curebies, the medical fraternity cares when long-term harm has been done and continues to be done to vulnerable people because of fraud. Other examples of the medical fraternity coming down on doctors like a ton of bricks for doing the wrong thing to vulnerable patients can be found with a simple search for “deep sleep therapy”.
Curebies love to accuse the medical system of all sorts of fraud and malfeasance to explain autism. But as deep sleep therapy and Andrew Wakefield demonstrate, the actual good guys demand a heavy burden of proof before crucifying anyone.
Curebies have a reputation for being unable to keep their stories straight. Why they should be allowed to influence the laws that we all must live by is anyone’s guess.
- When your opinion concerning anything to do with autism is contradicted by an autistic adult, it automatically means you are wrong.
Parental units who happen to be curebies seem to want to be treated better than everyone else. Even when blasted repeatedly in the face with facts, examples, and the stories of personal experiences by autistic adults, they try to tell us that their opinion counts more than the autistic individual.
First of all, being “the parent of a child with autism” does not make you autistic and thus a person to be taken seriously by autistic adults. It makes you a parent. And when you try to play this card, it makes you look like what I deeply believe you are: a parental unit trying to excuse your own abusive behaviour.
As much as it bruises your little ego, you have to learn and accept that your opinion is not absolute, and that there are many people out there who know better. If doctors with multiple PhD.s can be caught lying, committing fraud, or making statements so outright stupid that it beggars belief about autism, your chances of actually correcting an autistic adult are nil. Whilst autistic adults vary wildly in terms of what they focus upon and what their interests are, the one thing they universally educate themselves about is autism.
When you ask us if we know what it is like to be “the parent of a child with autism”, you are delivering the equivalent of a racial slur. And that is after the separationist language is taken into account. Given that autistic adults have a higher tendency to have autistic children, there is a probable answer that Internet humorist Maddox once delivered so well in regard to sale signs. We know. We fukking know.
Repeating such slurs, or stock responses as you apparently think of them, does not make us feel put in our place. It makes Powell types like myself see you as child abusers.
- Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes has a reputation for lying. This reputation is entirely their fault, nobody else’s.
Autism Speaks is said to collect millions of dollars in order to further their “cure the poor, miserable, pathetic autistic child” efforts. Every red cent they have can be said to have been obtained through deceitful means. That is, they are frauds.
Before I elaborate, I will reiterate a certain point that few people in the world seem to be aware of. Between giving money to a private charity organisation and throwing your money up in the air, then seeing where it lands, there is little real difference. Charities rarely spend more than ten percent of the funds that are donated to them actually helping the people that they use to solicit donations. And it is not unheard of for charities to spend no money at all helping said people.
Nor can there be called anything resembling a match between what autistic people want and what Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes focus their efforts upon.
Let us take just for example what I have stated would be wise investments for autistic adults. At the time I made such a statement to the government, two things are worth keeping in mind. One, it was reported that idiots donated more than fifty million dollars to Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes. Two, I was about twenty-eight years old and so desperate to leave both the company of my parental units and the village they had tried to make me think I would die in.
Fifty million dollars at that time would have bought ten houses in Central Western Sydney. That is ten houses that autistic people who were in some manner or other being deprived due to being in rural shitholes can use to access decent medical and psychological care.
Fifty million dollars is enough to train at least a hundred specialists who can then know their arsehole from their earhole about autism.
Fifty million dollars could pay the wages of enough autism specialists to guarantee decent treatment of autistic children in schools, something that Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes quite transparently does not want to happen.
Fifty million dollars could be placed in an interest-bearing account and attract enough in dividends to keep dozens of autistic children living free for the rest of their lives, if such a need arose.
But what Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes does with this money instead is pay outrageous salaries to corporate officers who contribute nothing. Or bribe celebrities who really ought to know better into trumpeting their cause. Or give pork to politicians who either do not know or do not care that by having a nice word to say about Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes, they are complicit in an attempt at genocide.
This is to say nothing of the lies contained in Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes’ adverts, which range from completely distorting the manner in which the autistic see the world around them to creating false equivalencies between autism and cancer (or similar). Or the deluge of lies that Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes feed into the public consciousness with every chance they get.
Lying about a group of people in order to solicit money, and then using that money to eliminate or further the elimination of that group fits the definition of fraud. Many autistic adults want Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes to be divested of their tax exempt status and put on trial for fraud.
Does this sound like an organisation that you should be cheering for, normies?
- When you neglect your child for not living up to your lionised expectations, and you are told that they are autistic, their difficulty in getting on in life is not autism’s fault. It is yours.
Novels like Tarzan proclaim of a child raised in the wilderness by monkeys, without any Human society at all, somehow growing to be nobler and better than Humans brought up in civilisation. But there have been a number of examples of children raised in complete isolation, with almost no interaction with other Humans, and these real-life examples prove the exact opposite.
If you give up on your child because they did not come out of the uterus quoting MacBeth and getting all their peers in a whirl of respect for them, their failure to meet your expectations of what they should be as an adult is your fault.
In times past, there have been television comedies or dramas in which the statement is made that children are the product of their environment. If a child is constantly reinforced in the belief that they are disappointing or not good enough, they will act accordingly throughout the remainder of their lives.
Today’s autistic children are growing up in an environment where the entire world seems to regard them as toilet bowl scum. Every day, autistic children are being murdered by their parents or random strangers, and said murderers are being excused without so much as a second thought. That cannot be good for the self-esteem of autistic children.
I am presently quite concerned for the welfare of today’s generation of autistic children.
Teaching these same autistic children that their space is theirs and nobody has a right to invade it, and that they have rights which they should defend, will have very different results. Children read or hear of people like Martin Luther King junior or Ché Guevara, and aspire to be like them. Imagine an autistic child being told that Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes’ ads being allowed to be broadcast without so much as a Fairness Doctrine to provide rebuttal is wrong. Imagine every autistic child being told that by someone in power over them such as a teacher or parent. That will produce a very different generation of autistic adults in the future.
- It would not be implausible to me that Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes murdered Avonte Oquendo.
Think back to when you were a schoolchild, especially one around fourteen years of age. How easy would you have found it to open a gate, walk off the grounds, and go and do your own thing?
Now think back to when you were that age, and ask yourself something. How easy do you think it would have been for someone to take you away from where you wanted to be against your will?
In my case, it would have required at least a police officer or three, and a bit of fighting.
Or it would have required someone with great attention-acquisition skills, knowledge of my feelings, and the ability to offer something that would get me to follow along. An older woman with a beautiful figure and a certain smirk-ridden, charming manner, if you will.
(Obviously I do not know Avonte Oquendo at all, and have no idea what incentives or disincentives he would respond to. But barring the possibility of him doing a runner simply because the school was abusive (equally likely), someone likely lured him out.)
Add to this that people are rarely killed by people they do not already know, and the picture that emerges is ugly.
Whilst I doubt anyone is investigating the possibility, I would not be in any manner surprised if a detective told me that they had substantial evidence to the effect that someone acting on behalf of Autism Speaks abducted and murdered Avonte Oquendo. The timing is just too damned convenient.
Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes generally do not give a shit about autistic people. In numerous conversations I have had with the parents of autistic children, I have been told that they have been blown off on one spurious pretext or another by Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes simply because Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes cannot use their children to promote the sick agenda that the organisation puts forth.
Given Suzanne Wright’s statement that she wants to see us only in history books, I have little difficulty believing that her organisation keeps tabs on the parents who contact her organisation. All it would take is the right parent describing their child the right away for Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes to send one of their people or even a mercenary to go to a school, lead the child out, abduct them, and murder them.
President Obama, please consider that autistic people as far away as Sydney believe this to be a plausible and even logical idea when questions are asked about Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes’ tax exemption.
You see, after years of autistic adolescents and adults committing suicide due to neglect and Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes making it plain they do not care, their rush towards the press to promote ¡Track The Autismz! can only fit this explanation.
Again, if you have doubt, let me make this plain: Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes’ founder has made it clear that she wants autistic people wiped off the Earth in much the same manner as Adolf Hitler wanted the Jews wiped off the Earth. So not only is it plausible to me that Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes arranged or ordered the murder of Avonte Oquendo, I would bet my life on it.
I hardly need to tell the parents of autistic children what kind of message it sends both to me and their children when they express support of such an organisation.
In closing, I wish to make this one thing very clear both to parental units and to anyone who is thinking of donating to Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes. There are two groups of people in this battle. There is Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes and anyone who supports them, and there are autistic people and anyone who helps them.
You cannot be both. And if you are cheering for Autism Speaks For Normie Assholes now, you had better believe your child is going to want to know why you hate them that much when they are fully grown.
