Ever Heard of This?
June 18th is Austic Pride Day. Not to denigrate the austic in anyway as my Mum used to work with them, but this day really isn't about the "autists" as such. Let's face it: is an autistic person going to feel pride in anything at all, let alone his or her own condition. It has to be tough on people who live with autistic persons, but this day sounds dumb. Call me insensitive (most people have at one point or another) but Autistic Pride Day sounds too touchy-feely, too politically correct. What about Austic Awareness Day/Week?
