Autistics Against Autism Speaks | A Civil Rights Movement

Autistics Against Autism Speaks | A Civil Rights Movement

A grassroots documentary to show Autistic youth and people’s fight against the Big Blue Machine: Autism Speaks.

Originally published on American Badass Activists, Jan 12, 2017.

 

Note: Autism Speaks is also recognized in the Autistic community as A$.


In 2005 Autism Speaks was founded to find a “cure” for Autism. The organization launched a massive wave of Fear Porn-styled advertising to raise an incredible amount of money in a very short amount of time.

#fact | Autism is a brain neurotype – not a disease. It can’t be cured.
#fact | The only “cure” for Autism is a genetic-marker test during pregnancy. This would result in the same “cure” society has for Down Syndrome: Abortion.
#fact | The only other “cure” for Autism would be complete human extinction.
#fact | The largest portion of Autism Speaks donations were funneled into research. Only 4% went to supporting existing Autistic children and families.
Autism Speaks, until October 2016, main goal was genocide. This video is an attempt to more clearly portray and explain through authentic Autistic Voices the true history of our people in the shadow of the Autism Speaks machine.
