#EndAutismNow is ableist.
You may hear that “oh it’s not YOUR autism, it’s the “Bad one”.
Let me be 100% clear:
AUTISM IS AUTISM.
These things that people often say are “the bad Autism”, are not Autism at all!
These are things that NON-AUTISTICS deal with too- or can deal with.
Thus, they CANNOT be Autism.
Try to cure co-morbids. I have NO qualms against someone finding a cure for epilepsy- or any number of other co-morbids.
But you know what epilepsy is NOT?
It’s not Autism.
Curing epilepsy will NOT “End Autism”. It will just improve the lives of a lot of people.
There are not “different Autisms”. There is Autism, and it’s co-morbidities.
Deleting, or curing a co-morbid will NOT effect if a person is Autistic or not. It just won’t.
But you will NEVER #EndAutism. Now. or Ever.
And I really, really wish you would stop trying to.
