Awareness cannot lead to acceptance | Un-Boxed Brain

But autism awareness campaigns don’t focus on those sorts of things. They focus on the problem that we create for our families, they focus on how many of us there are. They focus on how much we cost. They make us into a problem.

People don’t accept problems. They fear them. They try to fix them.

Can you imagine what it feels like to be seen as a problem?
