On “Light It Up Blue” & Autism Awareness Month…
Several of you have asked for a list of links about why your friends should NOT “Light It Up Blue” today/this month. Here you go. This is just a small fraction of what I could offer you, but I think it’s a good cross section. And remember, it’s not Autism “Awareness” Month, it’s Autism ACCEPTANCE Month. http://www.autismacceptancemonth.com

P.S. In the words of Juniper Russo:
“If there were a Light It Up Pink campaign where people all wore pink to celebrate ‘homosexuality awareness’ and raised money for dangerous ex-gay treatments and eugenic abortion of gay fetuses… Every caring person would identify that ‘holiday’ as hateful and homophobic.
Why is it so hard to understand that this is exactly what ‘Light It Up Blue’ is?”
P.P.S. I am NOT a puzzle, I am not broken, needing to be fixed, or mysterious. PLEASE STOP USING THE PUZZLE PIECE.
