 Autism is a litmus test to prove how much any given human fears what they do not understand.  It is not a disability, it is the human mind evolving past what "normal society" can control. It is not a "jackpot" for anyone with Munchausen by proxy syndrome (MBPS)Life is not about keeping up with Edith Wharton's relatives or the Kardashians.  Nothing has ever been as simple as "black and white" in America, and yet as far back as I can remember, absolutely everything in it seems to revolve around the color green. 

 

[Speaking as an American] I am sick of watching children being raised as I was.  I belong to a generation who were taught to believe that they can grow up to be anything they want to be...within limits. We need to be a world of square pegs, not Muffy Teppermans.  What we individually find challenging is what makes us unique. 

 Do you even know what people my age (32) have to go through when we’re raising our kids, how we have to debunk not just the lies WE were raised on that still exist, but the lies our baby-boomer parents were raised on PLUS the brand-new lies Big Media, western culture, and capitalism is feeding them?  

 Why even bother telling and/or teaching kids how important their individuality is anymore, or that they can be anything they want if they work hard and put their mind to it?  Why bother telling us that “knowledge is power” when  Why continue to break so many hearts by carrying on the cycle of creating false hope?  Why encourage people to vote when Americans have seen with their own eyes in real time that their votes and their VOICES don’t count and that all politicians care about anymore is becoming a celebrity?  It’s ruining lives, and it’s ruining America.

 

 Why brainwash my daughter into forgetting who the REAL enemy is while my generation is punished for the fact that we will NEVER forget?  Why continue to break so many hearts by carrying on the cycle of creating false hope?  Why encourage people to vote when Americans have seen with their own eyes in real time that their votes and their VOICES don’t count and that all politicians care about anymore is becoming a celebrity?  It’s ruining lives, it’s ruining America, and causing damage that could at any time put America through another Great Depression that was even worse than the first one.  Why ignore that the prophecies of "Atlas Shrugged" and "Anthem" are coming true?

 

  I have decided that I will not give any more money or attention to any cause or persons who make anyone with special needs feel as though they are at the bottom of the food chain.  I support the caregivers to Autistics.  The ones with backbone, the ones who do not treat it as a burden but as a blessing.  The ones who stay optimistic and refuse to ever allow other people's bitterness to poison them.  If we chose to decide from now on to embrace the idea that it is we who must acclimate ourselves to Autism and not the other way around, we could open the door to possibilities as endless as the universe.
