#BILLYMANNRECEIPTS | @BILLYMANN: What can be done in the now to bring hope to parents and actual individuals who are being diagnosed?

???: ... clearly/authentically in their own medium. Actions speak loudly; rather than explaining why you did what you did years ago, I would be curious how it can be made right more tangibly. Thank you for apologizing. Unfortunately, your piece and that video advertisement are still being shown (and will continue being shown) all over …

#BILLYMANNRECEIPTS | @BILLYMANN: It’s a false binary if you think it’s “cure autism” or “ignore all actual medical issues”

???: Autism is an umbrella term for an entire neurological state of being, mind and body. It is a term covering a wide range of people. It is a term that includes a person's self - what some might call their soul. You probably understand this to some extent, with your own children. All we …

#BILLYMANNRECEIPTS | @BILLYMANN: My autism makes me who I am.

Susan Elizabeth Spann: I'm a moderate-severe autistic. I just skimmed your "apology." And I am more ticked because you hinted that those with co-morbid conditions might want a cure for "autism"? Absolutely, but never for my autism. My autism makes me who I am. Like your son, I learned to talk. I am NOT ever …

#BILLYMANNRECEIPTS | @BILLYMANN: If knowing you put the evil out that is “I Am Autism” keeps you up at night, good.

Theresa Green: If you was truly sorry for the absolutely awful "poem" you made, you would have said so without this evident pontificating. I for one wont' forgive you. If knowing you put the evil out that is "I Am Autism" keeps you up at night, good. Your suffering will NEVER amount to the suffering …

#BILLYMANNRECEIPTS | @BILLYMANN: Was anything done before now to “make it right?”

Whitney Lee Geertsen: I Agree it was a non apology. Still not getting what autism is and isn't. Epilepsy is NOT Autism. IBS is NOT Autism. Curing Autism will not cure co-existing conditions only makes things worse for autistic people. Courtney Eli-Suders: Sincere question: Is this the first public apology or has your piece made …

#BILLYMANNRECEIPTS | @BILLYMANN: That is not only not an apology, it is aggressively attacking.

Maxfield Sparrow: That is not only not an apology, it is aggressively attacking. How dare you assume what others can and cannot understand? How arrogant of you to say that only you understand the true nature of autism. How infantilizing of Autistic adults do you have to be to presume we don't have the competence …
