Autism Awareness Week will be over soon, thank Torgo. It’s been awful watching a bunch of people so proud of their involvement with Aut$pe and that stupid fucking puzzle piece. It’s enough to make me want to bathe in the Grain.
Even worse is the amount of people who ignore you because you are not a child. Newsflash, people! Autism does not magically go away when you become 18. There are a great many of us who are denied much-needed services that would help us become independent. This “Save the children, and only the children” bullshit is hurtful beyond belief.
