Let’s Go Red Instead for Autism Acceptance Month.

Happy Autism Acceptance Month from your local autistic sea witch and cryptid mom. Remember kiddos, don’t “light it up blue” but go #redinstead

If you’re asking why not to “light up blue” let me explain.

Autism Speaks does not care about autistic people like myself. They’ve supported families in court who’ve abused and even killed their autistic children and most of their donations go to “awareness” and advertising. Autism Speaks also treats us like monsters and autism as something that needs to be cured. We are not monsters, we are not sick, our brains just work a little different than everyone else’s and that’s okay.

If you want to support Autistic people donate to and support the “Autistic Self Advocacy Network.”
