Anonymous asked: calling autism a fad is pretty disgusting. being trendy or judged as trying to be trendy is about the furthest thing from my mind when i watch my child and his peers on the spectrum fighting to gain the skills others take for granted... like being able to write or read a blog
I didn’t call autism a fad. I said that people have started calling themselves autistic AS a fad. Like, “I’m socially awkward, that means I’m autistic! That’s super!”. I don’t like that, I find it really offensive for the same reason you find it offensive. I have an autistic child as well, remember.
