Imagine your worst days being put on display for the world to see, while being described as the destroyer of all hopes and dreams. This is the nature of the message Autism Speaks spreads about my twin sister, Jessica.
Jessica is my other half. She does not deserve to be spoken about this way. She deserves the same respect as any other human being.
I am willing to bet the messengers on Autism Speaks would not want to be portrayed in this manner, why not affords the same courtesy to those you supposedly love?
The answer is simple-they do not love autistic personhood. They do not speak for me, my sister or my family.
