Autism Intolerance Month

In the United States, February is Black History Month. We celebrate it by telling black schoolchildren that they should be proud of their racial heritage. They learn about notable black achievers in American history. They are encouraged to set high goals for themselves in school and in their future careers. When they grow up—and perhaps even sooner—they can expect to see a black candidate elected President of the United States.

We follow that up in March with Women's History Month, telling girls that they should be strong and confident. They learn about women who overcame discrimination and became leaders in government and industry. They are encouraged to take challenging classes and to consider careers in science, engineering, and other traditionally male-dominated fields. When they grow up—and perhaps even sooner—they can expect to see a woman elected President of the United States.

Then the calendar flips to April, and we move on to Autism Awareness Month. Autistic children see pitiful, stereotyped images and hear that the existence of people like them is a devastating epidemic. They learn that many employers refuse to hire autistic applicants, based on differences in voice and body language, and that society sees nothing wrong with discriminating against their kind. The April curriculum is the same as any other month in schools that segregate autistics into special-needs classes and treat them as if they are incapable of learning. When they grow up—and perhaps even sooner—they can expect to see the systematic, worldwide extermination of the autistic population through eugenic abortion, courtesy of prenatal testing research now being funded in part by the government of the United States.

Autism awareness promoters such as NAAR and Cure Autism Now, which also fund eugenics research, shamelessly claim to be helping children. Cure Autism Now recently "helped" children with Rett syndrome, a condition related to autism, by funding the research of Dr. Huda Zoghbi to identify a genetic marker that is currently being used for prenatal testing worldwide to detect and abort Rett babies. (You'll have to copy and paste, because eugenicists are not getting any active links from me, but more information about Zoghbi's research is at


cureautismnow.org/site/apps/nl/content2.asp?c=bhLOK2PILuF&b=1289189&ct=1814251

and you can find a directory of laboratories at

rsrf.org/about_rett_syndrome/2.4.1.html

that perform a prenatal test for Rett syndrome, based on the gene Zoghbi identified.)

It's past time for our society to realize that autism awareness propaganda is America's sickest April Fools joke.

  • Autism Awareness Month is a joke, it reminds me of what blacks had to endure in this country until the civil rights movement in the 1960’s and for some time afterward. Only in this past generation or so, blacks have been looked at as people that are useful in society and not useless tragedies. This month is for the people who want to keep autistics down in the world and try to eliminate them, telling lies about them and making stereotypical remarks, not too different than what they told black people.

    I’m autistic and I know I deserve to exist; I am a wonderful part of everyone’s life and will be trying to get a job when I finish college in a few months. Hopefully, the employers aren’t racist against autistic people and I will get a job, so I won’t be that “tragedy” the racial hate groups like CAN, NAAR/Autism Speaks talks about so much.

    You know what; they hate us because we’re different from them. Pure elitism my friends, they are trying to wipe us out because they are the majority and they have the money, and we’re the minority and they don’t like us. I don’t want my children growing up in a world that they cannot be the way they were made to be. This reeks of eugenics.

  • So why don't we redefine it as "Autism Pride Month"? Have some kind of events- speak out in defense of autism and autistic ways of being.
    I have a bunch of other autistic friends, and my college is quite disability-friendly, perhaps next next year we could plan something

  • There is actually an Autistic Pride Day which is every 18 June.

  • It makes sense that blacks should have a month to celebrate, given that they comprise about 12% of the population. And, given our ratio, we should have - well, at least a *couple* of days to celebrate. And yeah, it should be "Autistic Pride", and not "awareness". What they're talking about is awareness of their phony theories, treatments, and doomsday scenarios about epidemics. Bah!

  • This is pure government propaganda. Schools preach it in 'special education' classrooms, and the only thing 'wrong' with us is a government flag in our permanent records. A flag which prevents us from getting the education we deserve, a flag which turns us into a subspecies of the human population, and a flag which prevents us from being recognized properly. If the general public were scrutinized, spied on, and analyzed the way we were EVERYONE would have some kind of mental disability.


    We need to speak up! Start a revolution! That is what it took for the African Americans! That is what it took for the slaves! We need to fight for our independence! We need to start by posting things like this on the Internet to make people AWARE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING! The government is trying to brainwash their population. Autism was not a problem before the first time it was diagnosed, and it does not need to be a problem today.
