Lot of people here are against the cure for autism so starting this thread might bring out an argument against the cure. It upsets members is why.

Google " Autism Speaks" Go to that site and you will see what I mean. They demonize autism and the spectrum, only showing the bad things, pain and meltdowns. They want to brainwash (and possibly kill?) all of us here! They believe that autistic kids are soulless masses of flesh possessed by a child-stealing demon called autism WE DO NOT WANT A CURE!! ! AUTISM SPEAKS DOES NOT SPEAK FOR AUTISM!! !! !! :evil:

Nope it dont but hey im looking for people like me to talk with and thats the place i went.
And honsetly what they think is not what i care about we have the controle over what we want in are lifes just like all others in the world does were like avrey other person here so dont worry about them. Honestly i watch avreything run by me i dont like to get into things.


Yes i think a cure would be very wrong and that people should stop treating us like that.
I have been someone who likes to just keep going on with my life and not worry about others.
:) So i dont really mind if others think worngly of us because we can find people who dont think that way and that get along with us and treat us like avreyother person also :) but thats only my ways of thinking. dont get upset or anything im not jumping on anyone i just say whats on my mind normley. ill look it up someday maybe but im sure i wont understand it so honestly im not exsactley sure why i would. but maybe someday ill try and look it up see if i get something.

I don't believe in a cure for autism. I think we are fine the way we are. The problem is with society who fails to understand our needs. To them we are a problem and they think that getting rid of autism is going to solve everything for us. But most people with autism aren't as thriving as you think. Its all because of misdiagnosis, lack of awareness and whatever that makes parents freak out. I don't want to be cured and to quote Temple Grandin:

Quote:
if I could snap my fingers and become nonautistic I would not do so. Autism is part of who I am.


And its true because it is part of who I am. It's something I've learned to adapt to and I couldn't bare being cured of autism. I think its mostly seen as being a disease when its really just as much of a disorder/disability as what mental retardation or down syndrome is. I mean you don't see anyone trying to cure those disabilities, do you? Why is curing autism such a big deal?
