Autism Acceptance Challenge 4 is a companion to challenge 3. This time, suggest links to posts by people you consider true allies to autistic people. These are the non-autistic people who are carrying the message of acceptance to their peers, amplifying autistic voices or speaking out to support us while never claiming to speak for us.
You may also nominate a true ally by quoting a Facebook status or tweet, with the author's permission.
Twist: You will receive one point for posting your nomination. The author of the nominated blog will also receive a point.
Here are a couple of recent posts to get you started. I'll add more as they are nominated and vetted. Posts containing content that is damaging or derogatory to autistics or any other marginalized group will not be accepted.
In defiance of gentle opposition at Respectfully Connected
"It is awareness that causes people to sigh in sympathy with parents who abuse and murder their Autistic children rather than condemning them for violently ending the innocent life it was their responsibility to protect."
The reason I blog at Autism Wars
"His cause is the ongoing battle for his civil rights, because he and his peers are marginalized from the moment of their diagnoses and that ableism continues throughout their lives. This is society's fault NOT the fault of their neurologies."
