As Seen On Facebook | We Don’t Need Another Hero via Katherine Erebus

I was taking part in a sad discussion about martyr parents in another Autism forum.
Many of the people I was speaking with expressed their frustration about T-shirts that glorify Neurotypical people who care for Autsitics, while at the same time infantilising us, making Autism seem like a childhood condition. We noted that many well-meaning Neurotypical people buy T-shirts because they want to “save” us and give to “Good Causes” to feel good.. or maybe just increase their own popularity.

In an effort to amuse and break some of the stress of the discussion I decided I’d whip this up.
