Autistic Moms of Autistic kids have put the call out to take this hollywood tragedy narrative of NT-mamas drowning out the Autistic community voice. We have put out the call to STOP Autistic Child Abuse! | Autistic Mom Puts Out a Call To Help Autistics Now | #AutisticMomsRise.
Your book has been identified permanently in our community, and the campaign to bring awareness this is a child abuse illustrative raw emos book — Blows my mind how you’ve responded to the actually autistic community and let privilege, gaslighting, intimidation, false reports to autism watch lists? Wow, you are not an ambassador of the Autistic people — never were.
That you assume to be is offensive and you’ve done great harm to the actual autistic community. We are the ambassadors here. Parents are welcome to join us — actual allies and actual autistic acceptance is how we’re moving forward.
Thank you for giving us such an incredible platform that showed the world what the autistic community is saying about autistic abuse. I’m sure this is not how you “thought” you were going to help us — but the end result is — NT parents of autistics are taking a stand with us — time for autistic abuse glorified is over. That you lord ADA like privilege is horrific.
The fight between abelists is absurd — that you and your husband consider yourselves disability advocates and then slaughter autistics with ableist slurs, hate speech and rage — Wow. That’s not the advocacy we need — that’s abuse. Again.
A petition against your book has been created. The boycott and autistic voice against your book is being documented in Autistic History — right now, around the world, the Autistic community has banded in the shared goal to stop Autistic Abuse.
We will be heard. In a horrible way — you’ve helped us and we won’t be silenced again. To be very clear: you and your husband do not represent the Autistic People.

Dear Eve, I appreciate your honest feedback on my book, though I truly hope you will refrain from judging it unless and until you have actually red it. Meantime, in response to you and other feedback I’ve received, please see my most recent blogpost: http://whitneyellenby.com/2018/03/09/on-speaking-being-heard/Warmly,Whitney
