Yesterday, I posted the first of two essays I wished to offer as penance for not participating in the Autistic Speaking Day exactly on time. In it, I describe the three main ways I know that a collective of people can attain freedom. In it, I explained why I would sleep better at night if autistic people as a whole “manned up” and demonstrated that they were willing to pay the “iron price”. Continue Reading
