StopHatingYourBody: Why I am against Autism Speaks (and you should be, too!)

goldenheartedrose:

(TW: Ableism) Autism Speaks is the most well-known autism charity. They have the most media coverage and are endorsed by many celebrities, but this certainly does not make them a good organization.

  • Autism Speaks does not have a single autistic member on their board.

Will read this later. I personally do not support Autism Speaks. I have friends that do, but I haven’t seen enough to make me feel inclined to support them. How about you? What are your thoughts on Autism Speaks?
