Since Autism Speaks released its appalling video “I Am Autism” earlier this week, to widespread global condemnation from parents and autistic self-advocates alike, British blogger Socrates of The New Republic has taken a leading role in organizing resistance to this latest atrocious effort to demonize autistic people.
He has taken the top Google spot from Autism Speaks with a parody of the “I Am Autism” video. To show your support for his efforts, go to his blog and leave a message in the comments! And if you have a blog or other website where you can express your views, please write your own post making clear why Autism Speaks does not speak for you. It’s past time to put an end to their hatred.
