I don't think so.

I'm neutral about the puzzle pieces - although I do hate their colors.

Why is there 2 shades of blue, and not green. Think green instead of light blue would be better

agreed. the only thing a puzzle piece says to me is that we have a missing piece.


That is what I think when I see it too, like in the Saw movies.

I had never heard of the butterfly aspect before now, but then I saw this! :P

http://www.myautismawareness.org/

Now, there is a butterfly WITH puzzle pieces.
This explains why the butterfly: http://www.causes.com/causes/512037-aut ... ness/about

I don't really feel strongly about the puzzle pieces one way or another. This discussion makes evident however that the slogan under the puzzlebutterfly "ONE CAUSE; ONE SYMBOL" is clearly inaccurate though, hehe :)

The butterfly is the classic symbol of psychiatry.

Though I think it has been associated with psychiatry longer, and psychiatry is more relevant to this discussion.

I'm pointing out that none of the iconography is unique, and as such is open to ambiguity and misinterpretation

I was pointing out how I thought butterflies related to autism.

I find it funny in an ironic way. I have two kids, one AS and one NT. Guess which one can spend an hour working a jigsaw puzzle? :lol: (AS kid loves to talk about his interests and spend time outside checking out rocks, plants, and insects. He has very limited tolerance for any activities requiring him to sit at a table, jigsaw puzzles definitely included).
