Hi I'm Sophie. 18. New York (not NYC). Please enjoy my disorganized blog!
I understand that it can be upsetting for a parent / family member, but it’s probably twice as upsetting & difficult for the autistic person themselves. And the vast majority of autism resources made widely available are by & for non-autistic family members/caretakers, while the amount of actually helpful resources available to autistic people themselves is minimal.
Basically: from what I understand it’s a lot harder to actually be autistic then to have a family member who is, so my sympathy will always lie with them, first & foremost.
Apparently this is in response to my post???
Tbh I’m seriously doubting you’re being as loving and kind as you think if you genuinely believe it’s alright to refer to his disability as “awful.”
Like jfc, this is EXACTLY the kind of thing I was refering to. It is not loving to convince someone an instrinsic part of who they are is wrong. It is not kind to make them feel like a burden.
And don’t even get me started on the abuse thing. My mum used to scream at me about she “couldn’t take it anymore.” That is was hard for HER. How do you think that felt?
What was “hard,” btw, was that my sensory issues limited what I could wear, so I usually looked scruffy and badly dressed. She didn’t like all the other mums thinking she was too poor to buy me clothes.
Neurotypical people’s perspective of what is “abuse” when it comes to autistics is seriously messed up.
