Anonymous asked: What is the I Am Autism video abt I'm nervous to watch it

its disguised as a helpful and inspirational video but it is the most ableist thing ive ever seen. its saying that autism is something that needs to be fought against and it “ruined their child” like uh no your child is autistic and you need to love and accept them not fight it and shame them for being born that way its so bad please do not see it #ableism

Tumblr really doesn’t seem to care much about disabled people and ableism. Seriously, I’ve seen multiple posts with 1000+ notes ripping at the TIMES list (and damn rightfully so!), however I’ve only seen one about the fact that the man that made the horrendous “I Am Autism" (major tw for ableism in the video) was on the list, and it only has 15 notes.

Laverne Cox and Lupita N’yongo literally have inspired so many trans women and black women and have done so much to encourage them and meanwhile they are less influential than an ugly oatmeal reptilian alien and a manchild who wrote a scene where two pretentious terminally ill teenagers make out at the Anne Frank Memorial
