Is she actually offended about giving people with autism medications? Of course we need a cure.

Most social justice morons advocate you don't support organizations such as autism speaks, they seem to think autistic people are only high functioning and neglect all the super bad off ones.

It's "ayybuhlist" to suggest it needs a cure.

edit: I learned autism speaks is actually pretty fucking awful BUT I do think trying to stop scientific organizations from autism research is pretty damn stupid in itself.

I heard that Autism Speaks isn't the best organization.

Wait for her to get diabetes. Then tell her that she doesn't need a cure or medication. See how she feels about it.

Remember that Tumblr post where they said skin discoloration is normal? A nurse on /r/fatlogic diagnosed it as acanthosis nigricans, a clear sign of the beetus.

As someone who's worked with kids and adults with heavy autism, yeah, they defo need cures. I mean, acceptance too, but acceptance isn't gonna help those with lots of problems.

But you people with real autism being cured would de-legitimize my fake diagnosis!! If people could just cure autism then how am I supposed to use it to be a special snowflake?! /s

It makes you a good human being, especially from a utilitarian perspective. You're thinking about the lives of the many people negatively effected by her.

If we stop now, everyone will forget about it after a couple months. We need her to be the new "triggered" gif instead of the other crazy feminist.

Fuck her. The thousands of low functioning autistic people who can't feed or bathe themselves, can't spontaneously speak and bang their heads into walls would disagree with her if they were FUCKING ABLE TO SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. Cunt.

Um. There are LF autistics with low self-care skills and the inability to verbally speak who have nevertheless come out strongly against organizations like Autism Speaks via methods of communication like typing. So no. They might not disagree with her, actually.

Autism Speaks has a rather ugly history of dehumanizing autistic people. They tend to speak of autism as though it's some kind of hideous demon that came and stole their "real" child away. They've been involved in all kinds of gross controversies, like a YouTube video where one of the board members said that she wanted to drive herself and her autistic daughter off a bridge in front of said daughter, and generally taking credit for the work of autistic activists.

I'm personally not against finding a cure for autism. But if I were autistic, I think I would be pretty nauseated by this group being the largest public advocacy group for me.

I don't disagree, and I hate AS more than most anything else on earth. However, there are also LF autistic kids who can't speak but can communicate via typing who have asked to have their autism taken away. Obviously everyone is different, but when someone says "cure everyone" or "cure no one" it really irks me because people don't see all sides of autism and how heartbreaking it can be.

:( I'm going to...add an addendum to my reply to the top comment. I've seen numerous SJWs shit on AS and I assumed they were just being overly sensitive children as usual, I didn't know about that board member thing.

It's a "stimming" behaviour they generally can't control. Stimming can also be hand flapping, echoing movements or sounds, or really anything that stimulates and calms their nervous system.

That's a university art project. Think about that for a second. I'm sure she got at least a B too.

"Never ever try to improve yourself, just accept any shortcomings and live with them."

Um, no. In every way possible, strive to improve. But then Trigglypuff is fat, so she's automatically a failure.

What's sickening is she's a "privileged" (how I hate that word!) white girl going to a private $65,000/year school. If she really wanted to help people, she'd use that money to send 10 poor kids to a state school or community college, and quietly spend her spare time finding, mending, and distributing clothes to poor people.

"Patriarchal Institutions" that she probably detests, like the Catholic Church in the United States, probably do much more to actually help oppressed people than she will ever do.
