Not because of our own difficulties, but because we are spoken over. And ignored.
This can be small-scale, like at home...
I'm also bisexual. You wouldn't invite a straight person to talk about LGBT+ stuff, would you?
This means that most organisations and individuals leading the autism discussion... aren't autistic.
This leads to a lot of issues.
We don't like Autism$peaks.
We don't like behavioural interventions.
We most certainly don't like being spoken over, when it happens every day to us.
Not promoting autistic environments silences us.
