I dream of a world in which to say that one is Aspergian/autistic conjures up accurate imagery.
I long for a place and time in which someone can disclose their status and be met with acceptance, support, or even a neutral indifference.
I’d like to build a society in which the use of the “autistic” term does not ignite fear and apprehension.
I would love to see a culture in which to tell someone you’re on the spectrum doesn’t change the other person’s perception of you or how they treat you. A world in which to say you’re autistic isn’t followed by being treated with skepticism or talked down to.
