Hello, I'm Elizabeth! I'm 20 and currently studying Early Childhood Education with hopes of being a kindergarten teacher one day. My favorite colors are red and purple. I LOVE Doctor Who, Sherlock, Merlin, and I have just started watching Supernatural. Sometimes I'm a fandom blog and other times my posts are a bit random. Don't be afraid to talk to me if you want to get to know me. =)
Frankly, I’m baffled. I want to yell “where are you all coming from???”
Because my anti-A$ post has jumped about 500 notes as well in the past 72 hours or so.
“ease the burden of people and families living with autism”
Bringing this back again.
This is incredible. Thank you for posting this. This damn near made me cry
As someone with an autism spectrum disorder, this disgusts me so much I just want to throw up.
This needs to stop.
My little brother has autism and holy god damn. Burden? Disease? Wow.
How the fuck is autism a burden Well I know how many can view it that way but I like myself (asperger syndrome) just the way I am. I am able to work well in school and achieve greatly, I was always a fast learner and though I may no get all those “social cues” I can get sarcasm (most of the time) and sarcasm helps with sociableness though honestly I hate the whole idea of popularity, I am happy, I may be weird and random and not really popular but who gives a fuck about popularity? I say being popular isn’t all it sounds like, and I like my autistic self much more than all of those people at my school who seem to never really be able to show their real selves to others. Autism may be hard on some families but instead of trying to cure it people should cope with it and make adjustments for the person in question, because “curing” a person takes away who they are, a part of them, their true self, and leaves them without a part of themselves that could really make a difference. My family is coping just fine with me around, they use sarcasm heavily to help me adjust to how others are and they point out what I do that is a bit abnormal, so I adjust but I keep who I am. My grandma tried to give me pills to “cure” my aspergers but after about a week I got rid of them because thy made me feel weird, fake, not who I really am, as if I was losing who I was, so I told my parents and they nodded and understood. Asperger Syndrome runs in my families genetics and has for quite a long time, so I am not really an oddball out, half of my family has dyslexia as well, we know how to deal with disabilities in this household, and others should be taught that instead of given magic pills to make the “problem” disappear.
