Please don’t act like the Neurodiversity movement represents me or all autistics for that matter. They don’t. The media only shows one perspective on this because schools brainwash people into pressurizing the media into this. I’m tired of articles like this.

Second time I posted this. Either let me speak or don’t make articles like this at all. I have a right to a voice like you. And my voice against this article is:

Primarily, I apologize for any censorship you believe has taken place – we are a small organization and I was unable to see your comments until now.
Secondly, we do not wish to represent all autistic people. However, for World Autism Acceptance Day, it felt appropriate to highlight the voice of an autistic student here at Memorial whose desire, along with the author’s desire, was to generate positivity surrounding autism. If you have a concern with this article, please consider writing a Letter to the Editor (whose email you can find under our “About Us” section on this website – themusechief@gmail.com), and I will be happy to read it and reply.
