Like most publications, The Aspergian uses editors. This is an accommodation for people who have important things to say but who may not have writing an area of strength or who have barriers to writing. There is no shame in an interdependent community.
Being able to find support and also to express oneself is a basic human need autistic people are often denied. We have editors who don't write their own content. We have people who do research and support behind the scenes. We have some who are only tech people.
This model of support that is judgement-free and empowerment-focused should be implemented in professional and advocacy contexts, for disabled and abled people. We have put together something great, and not one autistic person invested themselves because of external motivation.
This is why behavioral therapy is absurd for autistic people. This is why it is ridiculous to say we cannot work together. A wise friend told me that if a flower isn't budding, don't try to fix the plant. Fix the soil and change the environment. Remove the barriers to sunshine.
#TodayInABA autistic children will be trained and conditioned to seek social approval and material rewards.
#TodayInABA Humanity is missing an opportunity to save itself from social and environmental ills by not consulting the wisdom of the autistic community. Autistics Speak, and there needs to be a billion dollar awareness organization called Neurotypicals Listen.
