Listen to Autistic People.

The Bullshit Fairy

I saw an article today and there was one particular line that really stood out to me. So I fixed it.

Allies or self appointed allies aren’t supposed to tell other people to listen to other allies. That’s not how this is meant to work.

I am making an example of this recent quote from an article published yesterday, 22nd of September 2016 which you can find here:

http://www.theestablishment.co/2016/09/22/how-autism-warrior-parents-harm-autistic-kids/

The title of the article is what grabbed my attention, because I am very passionate about my own Bewareness Campaign about Autism Moms™ (aka Autism Warrior Parent).

And Shannon does reference autistic people but it is disappointing to see she focuses a lot of attention on non autistic people and calls them experts. Autistic people are continuously being silenced and that is something, in *my* opinion, a good ally avoids doing to do to the group that they are trying to support.
