There is Often a Lot on My Mind

So I can’t really be sure what to write about. I was thinking about how people view autistic people and autism as a tragedy, but, a kid with autism is going to bravely live in the world on her own terms. They will find their joys and their passions, and they will thrive. The attitude of sadness and defeat is NOT going to help them.

Do people ever think about how much it hurts autistic people to hear these things and read these things? These statements of total despair.

Somehow things have to change, but you can only change minds if people WANT to change their minds. It’s hard to do that. Possible, but incredibly difficult.
