Watching the movie “Milk” the other night, I was struck by a scene where Harvey Milk told the man who eventually murdered him that the things he fought for were not political “issues.” He wasn’t playing identity politics. The things he fought for were personal, but also reflective of the needs of many. The scene made me think about my social media presence. I want people to understand the same about me. Autism is my identity. It isn’t a cause I’ve taken up or an issue I am passionate about. It is my life.
