I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means- Nick Walker

In a recent online discussion, a parent wrote, "It's fine to hate autism and still want acceptance." 

Yeah, but then it's not "autism acceptance," it's "neurotypical parent acceptance." 

If it doesn't involve acceptance of autism, and acceptance of autistic people as autistic people, you don't get to call it "autism acceptance."
