Different anon who also has Asperger's: I completely agree that the whole "the cure is ableist" crowd are VERY selfish. What they don't get is that not everyone is high-functioning and ~awkward precious babies~ (ACK) and that some people might be severely impaired by it. It reminds me of that scene in X-men where Rogue asks "There's a cure?" And Storm goes "shut up we're perf"
That gif honestly sums up the situation nicely
And they make it sound like people are gonna be going around sticking needles in grown ass people to absorb the autism. That’s one thing but even still it’s not like they’d hold someone down to give the treatment. I’m always like why not think about like…babies who could possibly be helped before they’re born or soon after. I feel like they would appreciate that sort of science if it was available.
Not everyone thinks struggling with autism is a great life. I even see people acting like their diagnosis gives them superpowers that they’d never wanna give up. Like do you hear yourself? Yeah, YOU found a silver lining but not everyone is you nor feels the same…
