Chapter eight is called A Toxic Womb and I refuse to engage with this woman's asinine quotes any longer.

SOMETHING about you is definitely toxic, #HellMother.
"Our house is a tomb and we are walking cadavers."

NO ONE HAS DIED! Autism is NOT a fate worse than death. Just stop with this shit. #HellMother
"And Zack, staring vacantly into the distance, is a constant reminder that, while the physical child is still present, his very essence is not."

I am close to the point of tears. This will be my last chapter today. I simply cannot take much more of this right now. #HellMother
#HellMother "Zack, as we knew him, is gone and a very real death has taken place. Death of our expectations. Death of our future. Death of the child we thought we knew."

NO. Your child is NOT dead. NO autistic child is dead. This exact mindset is the cause of numerous murders
of autistic children by their own parents, but it's WRONG.

That is a living, breathing child and if you decide he's already dead, you will never understand him and you don't deserve him. #HellMother
#HellMother "My beautiful, lobotomized child."

YOU EVIL, EVIL, EVIL WOMAN. You utter trash heap! How dare you! The history of lobotomies is a violently ableist one. Your child has NOT been lobotomized. He has not been reduced to a near vegetative state because someone stuck a
fucking ice pick in his eye!

Just no. I don't care about your fucking expectations. No child deserves this. #HellMother
"I engaged in ruthless bullying of others in childhood without any comprehension of how badly I was scarring them."

Yeah, can't say I'm surprised that #HellMother was a Hell Child. But it explains so very much, doesn't it?
"There is something rotten inside me, a badness so endemic it allowed me to break up relationships."

Well, now that I agree. However, your child was not punishment for that. #HellMother
#HellMother Oh. Oh thank god it's the end of another chapter. And I'm done for right now because this is shredding me to bits.

To my fellow autistics: You are not empty shells. You are not cutouts, you are not lobotomized, you are not punishment for someone else's bad behavior.
You are whole people, with your own desires and needs, and you exist because you deserve to exist. This woman and those like her are wrong, plain and simple.

It doesn't matter if you can speak or not. If you have good affect or flat. If you're a hyperfocused (@HellMother)
genius or struggle to focus on academic subjects. It's fine if you're not a savant, if strangers make you uncomfortable, if social interactions hurt.

You are good and worthy.
