On the surface it’s about an autistic boy growing up with his family.
Except it’s not. It’s about an allistic (not Autistic) family living with an autistic child.
A child who is to be played by a PUPPET. 2/
Why does this matter? Why is it harmful? 3/
And what they’re going to take from this is that Autistic children do not have autonomy; do not have our own minds, ideas and experiences; and that we are there for the amusement of others. 4/
And that’s not ok. 5/
And then I’m going to tell you what you can do to help us fight this. 6/
Well, the noise from our community against #AllInARow has been staggering over the last few days. And they organisers have noticed us.
But they’ve claimed that too much money has been invested to row back now. 11/
They’ve acknowledged the harm and chosen to take no action.
So pro ally tip #1: DO NOT GO AND SEE THIS PLAY.
Don’t give them your money. Vote with your feet. And tell others to as well. 12/
Make our voices heard. 13/
Please. We need you to step up.
