The 'political' side of autism
I'm very much a 'political animal' , but the 'political' aspects of ASD can make me feel quite stressed and uncomfortable.
I think it's because of the zealotry of some,not all, of those who self promote themselves as 'voices to be listened to' within the autistic community . There's a harshness there that makes me feel uneasy.
There's also an attitude of 'What suits me and what I want should be the blueprint for all'. It's the same with mental health groups and service users on those .
