Wait how does Autism Speaks hurt Autistic people?
I’m glad you asked.
Autism Speaks is an organization that talks over autistic people. They don’t have any autistic employees or head members. They are not concerned with the psychophysical wellbeing of autistic people, rather they are more concerned with autistic people’s allistic/neurotypical relatives’ wellbeing, often at the expense of autistic people’s.
Most of the money Autism Speaks receives through donations goes towards “autism research”, whose primary objective is to find the “cause” of autism in order to do some eugenics magic and eradicate us all in the long run.
Autism Speaks actively spreads misinformation about autism. They say that vaccines cause autism, although no compounds in vaccines are able to change brain structure in such a way. They also organize many “autism walks” and similar events to further fuel their agenda and attract more donators.
They have produced a number of promotional videos/interviews, including Autism Everyday, where an allistic mother discusses her thoughts of committing a homicide-suicide of her autistic child, right in front of said child.
There is another one, particularly revolting, called I Am Autism, where autism and autistic people are demonized and blamed for completely unrelated issues, such as economic failure and marriage failure in families.
You can look all of this up. But be warned, you are going to see really vicious things. Because that’s what Autism Speaks is. They are just as vicious, malevolent, evil and wretched as they make out autism and us autistic people to be. And I hate them with my entire being.
