Kodi Lee and Greta Thunberg: Autistics in the Media.  A tale of two ableisms. | The Aspergian | A Neurodivergent Collective

Two autistic voices have risen to prominence in the mainstream media: Greta Thunberg, teen climate change activist, and Kodi Lee, the blind autistic musician and singer who recently won the popular show, America’s Got Talent.

Both of these autistic young people are amazing, but this article isn’t about them or their achievements.  This article is about the reaction from the general public and my autistic perspective about those reactions.
