I’m not a fan of Autism Speaks. (Circa 2008 )| Eve Reiland | @autismspeaks & @BillyMann, you suck

I’m not a fan of Autism Speaks. Signed up for their walk before I realized really what they were about.

On the surface it sounds good — but with more understanding I can’t believe these folks are the loudest voice.

There has to be organizations out there promoting positive change. I prob sound nutty, but I think this is the next civil rights movement.

There are so many of our kids now and they will be a part of society — whether or not society likes it at this point. I can’t believe the discrimination that folks have.

Just blows my mind. It makes me really angry too. #actuallyautistic#LightItUpGold
