Autism Speaks is basically a hate group | Opinions | umassmedia.com

Autism Speaks has gained a fair amount of exposure and popularity as an organization. I’ve seen their logo used in countless ways, and have known people who participated in their walks. However, it is a group that I—and many others—have refused to support due to their history of demonizing people with autism, ignoring their voices, supporting abusive groups, misreading false information and even potentially promoting eugenics. There’s good reason for people not to support their organization. There’s good reason for some to even call it a hate group.
