Wright vs Right: Autism $peaks is Completely Wrong

Wrong is not the word I’d choose, although it fits nicely Suzanne Wright’s name (cofounder of Autism Speaks). The word discrimination (ableism) would be more accurate. Autism Speaks have had plenty of opportunities to promote respect as well as awareness of autism; instead they have chosen the path of fear and intolerance. There are plenty of other organisations more deserving of the publics support and corporate sponsorship (details in the link). Please take the time to read and sign the petition to give ‘Autism Speaks’ less power because they refuse to listen to the voices of people with autism (ironic given their name).
