Haven’t you heard? There’s an epidemic and it’s cause is genetic its results – pathetic
or maybe it’s vaccination according to your publication that results in my deviation
Either way, you’ve made it quite clear from what I read under your veneer of politeness, that I’m shouldn’t be here
My presence is a disease, cuz its allistics I displease; I make them ill-at-ease they wish that they could squeeze out my autistic qualities try to ‘purify our genes’
They see us as pathogenic so they want to use eugenics to wipe us out from existence
Yeah, you heard me you vultures I’m fed up to here with your “cure culture” cuz it’s autistic kids you torture
“Torture? Not me!” you say but you still signed us up for ABA even after the creator would say
“you start from scratch when working with an autistic They say they’re people but I’m not buying it cuz they don’t have the proper psychological elements.”
Then you say “help us stop you from being born Cuz its the way you act we scorn because you will never fit the norm”
Your cure culture’s abusive Your society, exclusive, it may seem inconclusive if it doesn’t leave bruises, if the parent chooses this intrusive environment to make us non-obtrusive, it should be collusive cuz its intrusive, abusive makes us reclusive
So don’t you even dare to call that shit child care and if you really care you should beware this false health-care can’t repair us though they declare what they do is fair
you can’t fix us cuz we’re not broken even if we haven’t spoken, (and no- your kid hasn’t been stolen)
So don’t buy the hateful hype that demonizes my neurotype that wishes us out of sight
see not only is it not so bad to be autistic makes me glad! And sure you’ll say that this is a fad
this autistic pride you had it! You say we’re faking it and soon we’ll quit
no matter what I do, anything I say is proof that I’m lying to you
I talk too well I talk too poor I look you in the eye or I look to the floor either way I’m too high functioning (to know what its like) or low functioning (I’m just like a tike)
it’s a huge coincidence that only allistics can determine the autistic experience!
So no I’m not faking but yes I am claiming autism isn’t what ails me!
It’s not an ailment, it’s excitement! Not bereavement, (occasionally befuddlement) but our autism does not cause us torment
Sure the lights are so bright the sounds are so loud the smells are so strong
but can anyone else derive so much enjoyment out of the taste of chives, honey of a bee’s hive just being alive?
For some sensory experiences border on decadence it makes me feel glorious!
for if every sensations stronger it just will make you long for the feeling of another
and socialization? Something we can partake in or not if we hate it
sure it can be confusing (our phrasing may sound amusing) we may not catch allusions
but either way, it works for us (except for executive dysfunction- that causes quite a fuss)
but not enough to make this a curse we still can rejoice at our birth and never wish to join the earth
So I’m not a liar if I am inspired and wish to acquire The autistic appreciation of self stimulation and non verbal communication not to mention our elation in our special interest fascination and our non traditional education, our misunderstandings of oration our strange ideation or solitary inclination for we’re just a variation in the natural human diversification!
So now that we’re allowed to scream out loud to flap in the crowd with hands unbound its time to call out “I’m autistic and proud!”
