“I have even seen some parents come into the space of an Autistic person, someone with lived experience – and when it has been explained that ‘Light it up Blue’ and ‘Puzzle Pieces’ and ‘Awareness’ are offensive and even triggering, these same people have continued to defend their position.

It would be interesting to see what would happen if they tried to understand the impact of negative rhetoric and how this is embodied in blue lights and puzzles as a metaphor for this hateful cure mentality.”
