In news of the obvious:  actually give one second of thought to what disabled people need! Their partnership with Autism Speaks should come as no surprise to anyone who pays attention to the disability community or has even the most basic understanding of pattern recognition.Check out this for links to writings from the disability community who have been critical of The Mighty’s exploitation from the beginning:

White text reads “The Mighty & Autism Speaks: Partners in Ableism

both claim to speak for disabled people while silencing our voices!

both are making lots of money by exploiting us & portraying our lives as a tragedy!

both center the voices of non-disabled people in OUR stories!

both contribute to fear and stigma surrounding disability!
