Autistic Community Condemns Autism Speaks’ “I am Autism” Campaign

“We are the true voices of Autism,” say Autistic adults; Campaign spreads stigma, prejudice and inaccurate information; ASAN vows protest of upcoming Autism Speaks fundraisers

Washington, DC (September 23rd, 2009) - The autism community reacted in horror today to Autism Speaks’ new “I am Autism” campaign, presenting Autistic people as kidnap victims and burdens on their family members and communities.

“I am autism. I have no interest in right or wrong. I will plot to rob you of your children and your dreams….And if you’re happily married, I will make sure that your marriage fails. Your money will fall into my hands, and I will bankrupt you for my own self-gain,” says the “I am Autism” video, released yesterday and created by Academy Award-nominated director Alfonso Cuarón and Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Billy Mann. [Full text is available here.]

“This is the latest in a series of unethical fundraising strategies adopted by Autism Speaks,” said Ari Ne’eman, an adult on the autism spectrum and President of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN), “This type of fear mongering hurts Autistic people, by raising fear and not contributing in the slightest to accurate understanding of the needs of Autistic adults and children.” ASAN’s Columbus, Ohio chapter has already made arrangements to protest Autism Speaks’ upcoming local fundraising walk and other ASAN chapters will be making similar arrangements shortly, said Ne’eman.

I recieved this in my email today:

"Dear NRDC BioGems Defender,

Fantastic news! Late last night, after months of intense pressure from
millions of pro-environment activists like you, the House leadership dropped its
plan to allow oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as part of
the budget bill.

The rest, behind cut. )

BOOYAH! Thanks, to everyone who took part in the Eco-Zerg Rush! :-D

She aimed this at the local Dallas Gothic community, hence the statement about melancholy, spiked collars, pink hair, and angst. ^_^ But I think that this message is important enough to be voiced to the people as a whole, and I have decided to join her suggested "shoe polish protest."

P.S. If you're in Texas, go vote! Early voting began on Monday and will last throughout the week.

EDIT: [ profile] zaecus would like me to remind you all that the proposed Amendment #2 on the ballot is intended to prohibit marriage between people in the GLBT community. This is not only discrimination, it is redundant, since such laws already exist on the books (though we're working to change that!) And according to [ profile] masakochan, the fucked-up wording of the proposed amendment might very well annul all marriage in Texas. 0.o WTF?!

Anyway, here's the word from [ profile] rishgrrl...

"2,000 U.S. Soldiers DEAD
50,000 + wounded

"I'm starting a "white shoe polish" protest. If you want to help, please do! Grab some white shoepolish and hit the back of your windshield on your car. Wake these sleeping masses up! Write something...anything. "Peace Now" "No More US Imperialism" "No more blood for oil" "No more boy-king crusades, bring our troops home" ..........etc...........Whatever. Just something! Wake these fucks UP!!!HELL, we've got a "soccer mom" that's chaining herself to the White House. Are you REALLY "outside of mainstream"? Are you really awake? Then stop being so bloody melancholy about everything and DO SOMETHING...ANYTHING about this. We have a many wounded now (of our troops) that died in Vietnam. How much blood is it going to take for you to do something ANYTHING about Imperialistic America?!? I know so many that are so "daring to be different" with spiked collars and pink hair...but do you really have the balls that it takes to ACTUALLY be different and stand up for a change?!? Got news for ya guys...corporate America is HOPING you won't do shit. You've got rage? You've got angst? You've got intelligence? Then do SOMETHING. Personally, I am so sick of this shit!

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Join the white shoe polish cars and get people to wake the fuck up.

Enough is enough "Boy king George". We're done with the "new crusades".

This doesn't even start in on the horrors the people living there face. ..........

White Shoe Polish Protest Now!!!

Please pass this along if you feel so inclined...."
