  1. Interesting….

    I will say though, as someone who has an autistic kid, Autism is not my kid, and yes i do want a fix. I don’t want him locked in a world where making friends is really hard, because he annoys everyone. I don’t want him locked in a world where elopement is a common issue. I don’t want him locked in a world where reading is hard for him.

    I applaud her activist work. I am appalled that others would treat her that way. But I will not feel bad about wanting my son to be able to function in society. IF he was deaf, I’d want him to hear.
