Autism Advocacy

A difference in mind doesn’t make someone less human. It makes them worth listening to. Autism is not a disease to be cured. We are as we were made, and the fact that we process and experience the world differently does not make us broken, it makes us indispensable. In a progressive democracy, the majority must learn how to accommodate and protect the minority, or find themselves unable to adjust one day, when the popular course turns out to be not only impractical but fatal.
