Sun Ra gives it a spin.
I always reblog Sun Ra. It’s a law.
Their only interest is in eradication, which most (if not all) of my friends on the autism spectrum find quite threatening. And they do this in favor of putting any effort into actually helping people on the spectrum get good housing, jobs, supports. They are also fond of this awful, apocalyptic kind of rhetoric about how terrible autism is, which only goes to fuel negative feelings and stereotypes — and this can lead to abuse or worse.
My context here is as the father of a person with Asperger Syndrome (and relative to several others), and a friend and ally to people on the spectrum.
This is more for my own personal curiosity than anything. To prove a point to my self.
