Welcome to the third episode of "Autism and The Human." I'm Limbic Noodle. Today's episode is called "Autistic Masking." "Autism and Masking: How And Why People Do It, And The Impact It Can Have" by Dr. Felicity Sedgewick, Dr. Laura Hull, and Hellen Ellis was an invaluable resource for this week's subject.

Hello. Welcome to Autism and "The Human." I'm Limbic Noodle, and today's episode is "Power Dynamics, Pathologisation and Paradigm Shifts. I want to start by saying that Nick Walker's "Neuroqueer Heresies: Notes on the Neurodiversity Paradigm, Autistic Empowerment, and Postnormal Possibilities" was an invaluable source for today's subject.

I have a bone to pick about the way this person behaved. Marginalized people are often expected to defend their experiential learning and perceptions (people of various faiths, LGBTQIA, PW Disabilities, POC etc). When they express an opinion on Social Media, they are suddenly expected to provide a dissertation in support of their point of view.
They Say: He hasn't done this or that, and he probably won't Jim Jefferies Says: Give him a chance. Hitler didn't kill the Jews on the first day. He worked up to it. Piers Morgan: You see. That is the exact, ridiculous, hysterical, over the top nonsense that is making people frightened.
Planned Parenthood is targeted for defunding, as well as attacks by extremists, because 5% of their budget is spent on something a segment of the population morally disagree with. This same segment throw financial and personal support at Autism Speaks, including President Trump and Vice President Pence, when the result of finding a way to diagnose autism in the womb will lead to the same exact place. Children with autism will be aborted. The hypocrisy is aggravating. The fact these men appear to despise autistic people more than they openly hate abortion is terrifying.
It's so bizarre that I'm not convinced a treatment that began in Nazi Germany with the torture of mentally ill and autistic people before their eventual murders is a good direction to take. Excuse me for thinking this treatment is torture when it was the foundation of Applied Behavior Analysis and Conversion Therapy used on LGBT people to try forcing them into being straight.
My sister better hope she never gets questioned in a murder. PSA: People react to stress and grief in different ways.
The sad fact is that violence against disabled people is normalized in our society. It's a revolutionary act for a person with a disability to boldly proclaim they don't want to be put out of their misery. It is an act of defiance against social norms for a family member to say they don't feel burdened by someone they love, and would fight tooth and nail for that person to remain in their lives. It is considered insensitive to tell someone who loved the movie Me Before You that you think it sends a dangerous message.
