William Shatner’s Tweets Are a Classic Case of Misinformation Spread | Slate | Circa April 2017

 

You can learn a lot on the internet, and on Wednesday, a Twitter spat between a doctor and William Shatner—of Star Trek fame, with 2.5 million followers—taught us just how easily cranks and charlatans can manipulate the information out there. This isn’t a surprise, really—misinformation is everywhere, particularly online—but the exchange was such a perfect embodiment of the larger issues of the unavoidable desire to self-validate and the spread of quackery that it’s worth breaking down. …

Fierce Autistic Advocate: A letter to William Shatner from the Autistic Community

 

Dear Mr Shatner,

You seem to have a very misguided view on the #actuallyautistic Community. I will attempt to explain your inconsistencies in a way you can understand.

You say 85 cents for every dollar goes to advocacy at Autism Speaks.

Actually yes. Kind of. They group family services with research, advocacy and awareness. There is no true way to know how much exactly they spend on family services. Would love to know these numbers.

You say Autism Speaks no longer wants to find a cure. …

An open letter to William Shatner on autism awareness | Left Brain Right Brain | Circa April 2017

I see that you have been involved in a rather large tweet storm this weekend, focusing on your support for Autism Speaks. My guess is you would agree that 140 characters at a time is far too limiting to take on a complex discussion. Open letters such as this are as well, but at least I can go into a bit more detail. I hope you take the time to read and at least try to see at least my side of this discussion. …

What Should You Do When Your Favorite Celebrity Gets Autism Wrong? – Pacific Standard | Circa June 2017

Talking (and tweeting) with Kim Rhodes and William Shatner about learning to be an autism ally. By David M. Perry Kim Rhodes. (Photo: The CW) Kim Rhodes’ voice

 

Kim Rhodes’ voice crackles with static as she calls me from her car. The actress, best known for her recurring role in the long-running show Supernatural, promises me that she’s “hands-free and breathing deeply,” but she scarcely pauses for breath as she launches into her story. Rhodes is the mother of an autistic girl, and, a few years ago, she tells me, she tweeted her support for the annual “Light It Up Blue” campaign, sponsored by the mega-charity Autism Speaks. Some of her autistic fans quickly interceded. They told her that Autism Speaks was controversial, even hated, within some segments of the self-advocate community, thanks principally to its focus on curing autism. …
