Remember Autism Speaks to Washington - A Call for Action from November last year? This is what should have been said.
(See the end of the work for more notes.)
An Autistic Speaks to the Community - A Call for Action.
This week is the week America will fully wake up to the Autism $peaks crisis.
If ten million people in America one day went missing – what would we as a country do?
If ten million people in America one morning were wiped from existence – what would we as a country do?
We would grieve. We would blame terrorists. We would declare war on the guilty party and innocent countries. Finally, we would mourn the loss of so many opportunities for national advancement.
We’d leave no stone unturned.
Yet we’ve for the most part lost touch with ten million American people, and as a community, we’ve done nothing.
We’ve let people be silenced, disenfranchised, and murdered.
No more. Today is the time to rise up and take our futures back from those who claim we have none. It is time to work together in a concerted effort to shut down the organisation that claims to want to help Autistic people speak even as it works to silence us. It is time to shut down Autism $peaks.
Don't we and our families deserve it? America has always been about its great people.
Yet we seem to have been forgotten in the debate about a genocidal 'cure' - even though we have often led others into the future.
Each day across this country, ten million moms, dads, and others who live with Autistic people wake to the sound of Junior stacking cans, Jack playing video games, or Mom typing her latest bestseller, and they smile. Do you get that, Autism $peaks? People smile knowing that their loved ones are happy doing what they do best.
These families are living better lives than you envisage for them.
Autism $peaks says that these people are only existing and dare not call their time their own, but they are not the hopeless, helpless victims of their loved ones' neurology that the organisation so clearly wants them to be.
This is Autism.
Life is lived in the moment, enjoyed to the full, and people's worlds are not a series of never ending meltdowns.
This is Autism.
Parents and guardians smile at their child's joy in discovering communication through PECS, AAC, sign, and speech. They laugh to share their child's pleasure as they dance with a long ribbon, the Autistic person intently watching it as it streams around them. They marvel at the astonishing imagination of their child as they draw complex fantasy worlds entirely from their head.
This is Autism.
On the bad days, all the family members out there - 420 million around the world - feed into the lies of Autism $peaks because their loved one is melting down after reading about a parent, often female, who has been encouraged to murder their child by an Autism $peaks PSA. On the good days, of which there are so many, they feel the joy and contentment that is their right, and are able to ignore the poison spewed onto YouTube and other places by Autism $peaks.
This is Autism.
If any of this sounds familiar, you know Autism $peaks. And if you know Autism $peaks, you know we are looking at a monumental population and information crisis. And we have no international plan.
What I described above is really just the beginning. In the next ten years, up to a million Autistic Americans will lose their lives at the hands of those they are supposed to be able to trust, and those who kill them will be met with sympathy and face no charges as if we are not also human beings. Up to six million Americans face the misapplication of ABA in their own homes and places like the Judge Rotenberg Center.
But what about sympathy for the human beings whose lives were criminally cut short just because they had a different neurology? Why no jail time for those who choose to kill rather than giving their child to people who actually care? Why no condemnation for the organisation that actively encourages these murders by describing us as 'burdens' and 'financial nightmares'? And why is the torture of vulnerable people ignored and condoned when the waterboarding of suspected terrorists was rightly vilified in the international press?
There is no plan to build a city for ten million people so we can be guaranteed our safety.
So let's dial back a minute and consider the people being diagnosed as Autistic every day in this great country. Do we have a plan for them? Are they all being treated with dignity and compassion? Are we doing anything to guarantee they get a fair shot at a safe and secure future?
We know that children from minority and lower income families are not getting diagnosed as early as they could be, so their castigation begins later, which might increase their chances of hopeful and successful lives.
How about in school? Why should there be a national curriculum which underserves those who struggle with language? Why are we encouraging teachers around the country to share lesson plans and methods that work only with people of certain neurologies? Could it be because of Autism $peaks' corruption?
But - there is no international plan.
And - our futures depend on it.
According to Autism $peaks, it costs $2.3 million dollars to care for one Autistic person for their lifetime, and they say it will be well over $137 billion dollars for all of us.
But that is because that is all we are to them; not people with varying levels of ability, only costs to be considered and reduced wherever possible. They are very careful never to say what the real cost is to someone who raises money for them in the faint hope of receiving help for their child, help that is unlikely to be beneficial even if it is given. They also do not state the fact that most of the real cost of $1.4 million dollars to support an Autistic person throughout their life is down to the fact that no one wants to give us a job because of the prevailing belief that Autistic people are always severely affected, meaning people who are nonverbal, people with intellectual disability, and people with a host of co-occurring conditions, thanks to Autism $peaks PSAs that portray people with CDD as representative of everyone on the Autistic Spectrum.
What is our plan?
We can't even craft one - without collaboration.
Close your eyes and think about an America where ten million Americans and counting are told they cannot take care of themselves without help, even when they can. Imagine ten million of our own – unable to dress or eat independently, unable to use the toilet on their own, unable to cross the street, unable to judge danger or the temperature for themselves, unable to pick up the phone and call a friend because their parents and guardians have been brainwashed into believing that they will never achieve these goals when all that is required is the right support at the right time, just like for non-Autistic people.
This is an international emergency. We need an international action plan - NOW.
I am posting this as a call for action on an international plan - NOW. I am asking the Autistic Community to respond to the threat of Autism $peaks with all the urgency it deserves - NOW.
Autism $peaks - here we come - because we have an equal right to life - NOW.
Suzanne Wright and her husband Bob co-founded Autism $peaks in 2005, and they have been ripping off their donors ever since by massively underproviding the services they were set up to deliver.

OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense,who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion, or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
A moment of silence.
