If you are saying that it’s okay to go to a ‘comedy performance’ where a mother of an autistic kid encourages you and all the other non-autistic people to laugh at her kid’s autistic traits – well, that’s fine.
Just know what you’re getting into, and who you’re supporting. That’d be a woman who is describing your child as someone who is a ‘can short of a six pack’ and saying that the ‘wheel is still turning but the hamster’s dead’.
Who knows? You might just be one of the families that Nikki Osborne is talking about here.
But hey, if this is your official and elected spokesperson to represent your children and the rest of us who are ‘on the spectrum’, ladies – you go right ahead.

Quotes from the Powerful Mind of Nikki Osborne –
Nikki Osborne on eugenics:
‘See, I tend to think on the flip side, with physical abilities…two swimmers breed, they have a good swimmer. there are some families that you meet and the wheel’s still spinningbut the hamster’s dead… it tends to go through the family mind…they’re a can short of a six pack, do you know what I mean?’
