Hello, everyone. My name is Emma Falk. I was diagnosed as Autistic when I was 4 years old, and now I am 22 years old. I will be talking about why you should not support Autism Speaks and the Autism Awareness movemnent. Oh, and shout out to my wonderful parents, family, friends, and teachers/professors who refused to believe the autism fearmongering rhetoric, and decided to accept me as the autistic woman that I am. I love you all. Also, to my fellow autistics: You are all loved as you are, and there is nothing wrong with you. Happy Autism Acceptance Month! Wear red instead to support acceptance and inclusion of Autistic People.
