Real question. We know what we DON'T want to see from #autistic characters in film & tv (hold the puppet jokes pls), but what DO we want to see? Who do you want to watch and what's happening to them?

#DisabledTwitter please consider watching Voices from the Shadows, a UK documentary about patients being forced into Dr. Sherry-style graded exercise programs. My community has been shouting about this abuse for years, largely into the void: vimeo.com/ondemand/22513 #mecfs
There is a free code to watch the film. It’s harrowing. Proceed with care if you are a victim of medical abuse. Some of the stories are too shocking to believe but I am sure those within the community will have no trouble believing them.
And if you were outraged by NPR’s coverage of a barbaric chronic pain treatment, please consider amplifying the voices of people with #mecfs who are still fighting coerced/forced treatment and forced institutionalization. It is all the same fight.

When fighting Ableism, straw bans, inaccessibility, or the general oppression of society, I am uncomfortable that we tend to resort to, "What if you/your kid/your spouse/your friend/family member was disabled & needed this?"

It paints disability as something negative & to fear.
We can, or should be able to, state our truth, or the existence of others' truths, without relying on using hypothetical scenarios that target subconscious negative views and beliefs held by society. #Disabled #DisabledTwitter #StrawBan #Ableism #FightWithoutFears
And just a reminder aside that simulations of disability and disabled life are often harmful, and have been scientifically shown to have a negative impact on an individual's view regarding disability and life with one. #Disabled #DisabledTwitter #FightWithoutFear
