Inspiration Porn Headline News |  Autistic kid makes a friend first day of school… | Eve Reiland


Autistic kid makes a friend first day of school!

Wow that’s big news. Headline news. Even NowThis News.

What the …? These kids are kids being kids. Yes, inclusion is an incredible thing, but he giant news story because an Autistic kid made a friend at school on the first day when he was upset and scared … wtf?

Again, this is a news story because a Neurotypical (assumed) student made a compassionate move to another student struggling on the first day of school? Seriously?

Apparently the answer is yes. Yes, if that child is Autistic and the child helping them are not Autistic.

Wow.

Tell you what, when I make a new friend, I’ll holler. Maybe all Autistics can all make big news being Autistic and having a non-Autistic buddy. I mean, imagine an Autistic ACTUALLY having a real NT-friend. Wowzers.

Waittttttt …. stop the presses …. I just remembered, a nice NT man went out of his way to love and care for me. OMG he even married me. Where’s his headline for this amazingness to see me as a human and treat me like one?

Oh hell, so shocking it might need a movie.

Everyone, please cheer my hubba hubba hubby for being so awesome and make that shit viral.

I mean, the challenges of loving and caring for me are like … EPIC.Should be worldwide news. How astounding I could be loved, cared for and … you know … seen as a human.

For the record (not fault of these kids) this is inspiration porn. INSPIRATION PORN is utterly dehumanizing and gives emo treats to the NT world. Autistic and disabled communities deserve better than this type of dehumanizing. Do better than this zoo exhibit news on our lives, please. It’s horrible and gross.

Love to these two kids. May they go back to their regular lives and build an incredible friendship, or not. They’re kids! Let them be kids, neurotypically and autistically.

Autistically,

Eve Reiland
