Vanity Fair has a short article about a new website, Rethinking Autism, which can briefly be described as a satirical pro-neurodiversity site featuring sexy videos that mock celebrity endorsements related to autism. These clever videos are a perfectly targeted and totally hilarious send-up of a certain former Playboy bunny's autism profiteering, and they had me rolling on the floor laughing. I've reposted one of them below. Jenny, you've met your match this time.
This blog began its journey in May 2005, countering misinformation and stereotypes about autism. The title was chosen to make clear that autistic people are not changelings or aliens, but are human beings who have just as much right to inhabit Planet Earth as anyone else.
Now, as it reaches the end of its five-year mission, I would like to thank my readers and everyone who is working toward understanding and acceptance. May you find blessings wherever you go.
