I like to have a mixture of fun and formality when Autistic Lincs comes around but this week is pretty serious stuff.
In September, a book called How To End The Autism Epidemic by JB Handley, gets released to the public and first and foremost I reject the messages that underpin the book supported by Chelsea Green Publishing. Messages such as proposing ‘what’s causing the autism epidemic, the lies that enable its perpetuation, and the steps we must take as parents and as a society in order to end it’. That quote in itself is historically inaccurate and makes a mockery of my proudly autistic identity. If the autistic NEUROLOGY was to ‘end’ it would likely mean that Einstein, Mozart, Emily Dickinson, Michaelangelo, Newton, Darwin and many others would not exist.
