“So, I guess I’m writing this now to tell the autistic people who are reading this that I, too, am not your enemy. I am not afraid of autism; I do not hate autism, and I can help bridge the gap between our two groups. I want to learn from you, and I want to stand beside you as you fight for your rights. You are my child’s future and I want to help you as you make the world a better place for yourselves; and for him.”

-Jillsmo (on the contentious and painful growing divide between autism self-advocates and parent advocates)
