They are not Heros! a post to people magazine on Autism speaks


         Recently People magazine featured bob and susan wright as "heros among us"  They got a huge cover page and a story of coarse but here is the thing People if you had done a little research first on your subject matter you would have learned very quickly

Bobs and Susan wright are NOT heros!
  • there is nothing heroic about dehumanizing Autistics!
  • there is nothing heroic in spread fear and stigma for your personal gain!
  • there is nothing heroic about make an entire group of people feel like burdens and curses to their family!
  • there is nothing heroic about SHUT OUT the people you claim to speak for and silencing their voices!
  • there is nothing Heroic of parading parents in front of a screen to cry and say how much their child has ruined their lives!
  • their is nothing heroic about demonizing Autism and fighting against autistics that want acceptance, and understanding
  • Bob and Susan wright are NOT HEROS!!! Autism speaks hurts ‪#‎actuallyAutistic‬ people! the little good they have done pales in comparrison to the pain suffering, tears and harm they have caused building barriers of fear between Autistics and the community! Period!
People magazine you may ot have realized this but by featuring them as heros and battling autism as a good thing you too have contributed to the steriotyping, dehumanizing, demonizing and spreading of hate and fear towards Autistics

if you want to feature real heros look at the Autistics and our families who are fighting for accetances, understanding and supports that actually benifit autistic people.look at people fighting the stigma and demonization of Autism because in a world the tells you we ar lost, broken and burdens the true heros are the ones who stand with us in love support and acceptances who lift up our voices, We are not broken, we are not lost we are here we matter and we deserve to be heard!
