Want to draw attention to the plight of the poor neurotypicals during "autism awareness month"?

Lol, I love it, that's awesome :D I've never given much thought to autism awareness month, other than the fact that it doesn't seem to do much good... most people still have no idea what being autistic really means. Not to mention, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be affronted that we only get a month's worth of recognition, effectively giving the populace the excuse to ignore us for the other 11 months. I'll have to think on that some more.

I want one. I'm going to make one. I think I'm going to make a BIG one with a little explanation pencilled on it.

I love the eyes! I'd wear one, but I'm pretty sure nobody here will ask me about it and even if they did they wouldn't know what "autistic" or "neurotypical" meant.
