Or: why this day is bullcrap.
I am mostly off Facebook today. I can’t deal with “but I light it up blue not for Autism Speaks”.
We are told to shut up.
We are told you are not like my child.
We are told to be grateful we can speak out.
Can’t we, though?
Can’t we be grateful we can speak out and still speak out against ableism?
Can’t we tell you WHY this hurts of?
Why are you clinging on to light it up blue?
Think about why you’re clinging to it. Is it because you like it? Is it because you think it’s all there is? There’s more. There’s more beyond Autism $Peaks.
You just have to look for it.
