"do you feel better writing hurtful things about people who deliberately choose to write their opinions in the tags? there's a reason people put those things in the tags but obviously you feel the need to read through all of them and pick them apart on your blog?"

Are you SERIOUSLY trying to guilt me???

YOU are the one who couldn’t be bothered to spend even a minute checking my blog to see if maybe I was an autistic person, before accusing me of trying to champion for the Poor Wittle Disabled Kiddies.

THAT is what you got called an asshat for, btw. I’d have still called you it even if you’d put your comment in the main body of the post, because it’s not an okay assumption.

You basically wanted everyone to know you disagreed *except* me, in case I didn’t like what you had to say. That’s cowardly.
Don’t try and deflect it back at me, when I have a right to look at the tags on my own damn post.

So yeah, I do feel better, because I’m guessing this means you have no intentions of apologizing for assuming I’m neurotypical.

Make them feel loved and important in a world that says they’re wrong for existing. Tell them it’s okay to stim, or info-dump, or mimic, or be non-verbal. Defend them from shitty ableists who demand they supress their traits and don’t treat them like real people.

#why do you feel the need to speak for autistic kids? defend them? you just complained about people who don’t treat them like people but you’re talking about people from autism not being able to defend themselves #and i don’t think they need YOUR help

Why do I feel the need? Because I’m a fucking autistic person myself, you asshat. I posted this in the #actuallyactustic tag.

I’m saying defend them because I’m talking about CHILDREN. LITERALY FUCKING CHILDREN. Most kids would not be able to recognize ableism for what it is, let alone be able defend themselves against it. Even if they can, sometimes it’s not about that. Sometimes they NEED an adult in their corner, because their voice carries more power, both legally and socially.

I seriously hope the “people from autism” part wasn’t meant to say “people suffering from autism” because that is a disgusting, ableist phrase and is EXACTLY why this post exists. And you have the cheek to try and tell ME off???

Oh, and if you can’t voice your disagreements out loud, per se, don’t fucking voice them at all. It’s cowardly as fuck.

I actually really disagree with this, I work with autistic children and my brother was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder at a young age. Allowing children to stimulate, or info dump should be done only in careful moderation just like watching tv or eating fast food. By “protecting” them we truly do them a disservice. By “allowing” them to be non verbal we are only furthering their frustration. Imagine being non verbal? This is often why children often tantrum so often because they can not functionally communicate their own problems, wants, needs, or opinions. Imagine how unproductive you would be if you were so caught up in the sounds of rice falling to the ground you repeated the action of dropping it for half an hour. Children, whether they have a diagnoses or not, need to be taught productive habits for eventually they turn into adults and cannot always be “protected”. Everyone should be given the chance to learn to advocate for his/herself.

Are you fucking kidding me with this.

See, the reason I wrote that post is because I’m autistic. And I’ve personally experienced what it’s like to be on the recieving end of having your agency ignored, your traits mocked, and who you are and your capabilities not properly accepted. So in case it wasn’t already obvious, I find practically everything you’ve said to be a big steaming pile of ableist bullshit.

"Allowing children to stimulate, or info dump should be done only in careful moderation just like watching tv or eating fast food."

Did you seriously just compare autistic behaviours to bad habits??? Wow.

I’d kind of expect someone who works with autistic kids to know stimming is sometimes done specifically to help with focus or ease stress. In other words, a coping mechanism. It’s something that can help avoid sensory overload or meltdowns, and you’re actually trying to say it’s as bad for you as eating too many sweets?

I’m guessing this means you don’t realize neurotypical people stim too? It’s just their stims usually aren’t as obvious or socially unacceptable. Nail biting, finger drumming, playing with hair, humming, etc, are all stims. So unless you also crack down hard on those, ya haven’t got a leg to stand on.

"By “allowing” them to be non verbal we are only furthering their frustration. Imagine being non verbal?"

When I read this, all I can think of is those people who say “I can’t imaigne how horrible it is to be blind/deaf/in a wheelchair.” Yeah, you can’t, because you’ve never experineced it, but that doesn’t automatically make it a lesser way of life. It’s a fucked up attitude to have towards disability.

"This is often why children often tantrum so often because they can not functionally communicate their own problems, wants, needs, or opinions." Which is why you help them find OTHER ways to communicate. For fucks sake, I did not say “just let them be, if they want to talk they’ll talk” anywhere in that post. Of course they need to be able to communicate, but speaking isn’t the one and only right way to do that. If we can accomodate for people who are physically mute, we can accomodate for non-verbal people too.

And what’s your alternative here? Trying to force children to verbalize against their will? Even if they literally *cannot* because under certain conditions their ability to convert thoughts into speech is hampered or shut down completely? Yeah, that’s gonna work out great.

"Imagine how unproductive you would be if you were so caught up in the sounds of rice falling to the ground you repeated the action of dropping it for half an hour."

Because neurotypical people never, ever, ever waste their time or get distracted, right? Also, repetitively dropping rice doesnt automatically stop you doing other things at the same time.

"Everyone should be given the chance to learn to advocate for his/herself"

Reminder that, once again, I am autistic, so of-fucking-course I’m not against this. It’s not even remotely in the area of what the post was about, though.

You can encourage self-advocacy and still accept and support autistic people without demanding they change themselves first. In fact, one of the key principles of self-advocacy is you, and you alone, get to make decisions regarding your disability - making the decision to supress an autistic child’s traits because it’s in their “best interests” pretty much goes completely against that.

I’ve seen this post a lot and I think it’s rly great!!! however it’s important to use people first language so that autism does not define the kids. so instead of saying “autistic kids,” try saying something like “kids with autism,” “kids that have autism,” or “kids that have a diagnosis of autism” :-)

I’ve seen this correction a lot and. I think it’s rly great!!!! however, it’s important to know that it’s not actually correct and many autistic people don’t like or want to be referred to with person-first language, including the OP.

so instead of making a pointless, inaccurate correction, try finding out the opinions of actual disabled people on first person-language, because chances are you were told to use it by an abled person. :-)

*kids with autism but yeah. 

No, ******autistic kids****** is just as correct.

Not all of us agree on or want to be referred to with person-first language. And I’m saying “us” because I’m autistic.

** protect /kids with autism/ 

*****************autistic kids*****************

I know about person-first language. I CHOSE not to use it.
Why? Because I’m an ACTUAL FUCKING AUTISTIC PERSON and I don’t like it. Not the only one, either.

So atually get yourself educated before trying to correct someone else.

in fact protect ALL the kids. they ALL deserve love.

Don’t you dare try to derail my post.

If you think this is some general feel-good message, you’ve missed the point entirely. This is about ABLEISM. Ableism against autistics. Not all kids have to deal with that, so not all kids need this kind of protection from it.
