Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, pisses me off more than my self-diagnosed friends who rail against Autism Speaks.
They call that organization a hate group. A HATE group! I would be nowhere without their kind of therapy, and these neurodiversity faggots want to keep every child with a developmental disorder in the dark. Want them to just fucking grow old and slowly outlive the people who can take care for them, and not even be cognizant enough to understand what's going on.
My parents enrolled me in ABA and other treatments. And I'm not gonna lie: it was hard. There were times where I wasn't sure I was gonna make it. Times when it felt like no matter how I tried, I couldn't learn anything. Sometimes it felt like the only thing becoming more cognizant had managed to give me were more complicated ways to be sad.
But you know what? Now I can survive on my own. Nowadays, I code databases at a hedge fund, and am able to live off of my own salary. I need to emphasize: I would be sorting cans in a fucking grocery store if I hadn't had intensive therapy for this. And these fake, self proclaimed autsists want to take that all away.
Fuck them. Fuck them all to hell. Even the ones who really do have problems don't want to get better. They just want people to feel sorry for them. This "movement" is nothing more than the mildly impaired blocking treatments for the severely impaired, and I want nothing more to do with these people.
