I live in the United States, where the political situation is best described as "we are watching the rise of a fascist dictatorship". A+ well done America.
But that's not who I am addressing.
Parents, I am talking to you. Particularly if you support Awareness(TM) and pushes for intensive intervention.
I've met you. A large number of you consider yourselves liberal or even progressive. A large number of you would claim to not support this. A large number of you threatened to move to Canada if this happened.
And that's why I hope you're fucking proud of yourselves.
Not only did you give money to an organization run by a man who supported the Mango Menace, but also you shot yourself in the "running to Canada" foot.
No one will take you now, and it's your fault. I mean, you destined me to fucking rot here, but y'all are all for my death anyway and don't pretend you aren't, I have a file of threats.
No one will take you either and it's your own doing.
Every time you demand 40h/week intensive, expensive therapy? You damned yourself. Every time you complained about how expensive an autistic child is? You damned yourself. Every time you threw a big public fit about what a pain in the ass your child is? You damned yourself.
Because of your Awareness, autism is now a named visa exclusion for many many countries. You have everyone convinced we cost much more than an average child and that we're hopeless drains on everyone else.
All so you could get tea and sympathy at the expense of your child. All in the name of support for yourself, the only real person in the situation.
Never did you think ahead to "maybe the US isn't going to always be a liveable situation", surely you didn't stop to think about how your child may not want to live here for whatever reason. It was all about your tea and sympathy and self pity.
And now you can't run away to Canada or the UK or anywhere else either! And yes, you fucked over me and mine. But you're stuck here too and even as I know I'm dying horribly (aren't you sad it wasn't by your hand? I know at least a dozen of you are) I can point and laugh pettily because you are stuck here too, in this cesspit of a Nazi run dictatorship.
A+ foresight, y'all. Well done.
I hope you're fucking proud. Just know it wasn't worth it.
