it breaks my heart to have to write this caption. children, all over the world, are suffering greatly with this terrible disease. it has to end. we all know someone with it, and it just makes life so hard for people around them; their parents, their extended families, their schools. this is an epidemic.
#endableism :’( But all joking aside, #endautism is an actual thing that @jennymccarthy wants us to get behind. because of course, my neurodivergence is an epidemic and i can only exist at the expense of other, more important and allistic people, and therefore we should just die out. this movement is absolutely horrifying. its ableism at its peak, and i need y’all to promise me you will stand with autistic people against these people who still think that i am defective, that i am a waste of time or resources, that i exist at their expense, that i have some kind of disease. it is heartbreaking to know that these people could still think this way. lets end ableism.
