Note For Anyone Writing About Me

Guide to Writing About Me

I am an Autistic person,not a person with autism. I am also not Aspergers. The diagnosis isn't even in the DSM anymore, and yes, I agree with the consolidation of all autistic spectrum stuff under one umbrella. I have other issues with the DSM.

I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.

Copycat Warning for TPGA has a list of ``Top 30 Autism Blogs." It's here: Number 2, Thinking Mom's Revolution, looks like it's trying to get hits by having a name like The Thinking Persons Guide to Autism, and the stuff they write is just scientifically awful. It says autism can kill, among other things. Autism doesn't kill. Autistics sometimes GET killed by others. Very different statements. They were #1 for a while, but people did get the real blog up there, which is good. (I'm up there too, but I only have 4 votes right now, so no one's really gonna find me.)

  1. Apparently "drowning" and "being hit by cars" count as autism-related deaths for thinking moms.


I reserve the right to delete comments for personal attacks, derailing, dangerous comparisons, bigotry, and generally not wanting my blog to be a platform for certain things.
