This is probably one of the most important studios I've ever made.
In short, Autism Speaks SUCKS. They do almost nothing to help the Autistic Community, and they spend lots of time looking for a "cure" (which we DON'T need) and marketing Autism as an "epidemic" (it's not.) Their fear mongering techniques are NOT welcome in the Autistic Community, but they don't care. They want to increase fear and hatred just to line their pockets with money.
Also, there are NO autistic people on the Autism Speaks board. None.
They're kind of like modern-day Nazis. They've said at their board meetings that if they could, they would round up all autistics and put them in an institution.
Not to mention the god-awful not Scratch appropriate things they've said in their supposed "documentaries."
Looking to support a good autism organization? Check out the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network! They're a group of autistic people who genuinely help other autistic people, and want people to accept autism instead of cure it. Check out their website here: http://autisticadvocacy.org
I'll invite ANYONE who wants to curate. We need to spread the word. AUTISM SPEAKS SUCKS!
NOTE: This studio WAS created by an autistic (Aspergian) person.
