Abby's Neurodiversity Blog

Thursday, July 27, 2006

Hello.
It has been a long time since I've posted. For that, I apologize. A lot has been going on, including: my dog is sick, my mom is moving, my 20th birthday took place, my aunt flew down for a visit because she's having family issues, and to make matters worse Autism Speaks has started showing their obnoxious advertisement durning my Star Trek: Enterprise re-runs.

Star Trek, science fiction in general really, is always trying to tackle social issues, one of them being predjudice. They always have outlandish futuristic scenarious, involving some new predjudice, that are meant to be analogous to historical or current events. I was watching one such a program this past week.

I like to analyze shows, and nit pick any thing that doesn't seem realistic.

I was thinking "That's very not realistic. I'm fairly certain that if anything with such blatantly obvious parallels to Nazi Germany, or segregation; people would take notice. I think that far into the future we'll have learned our lesson. Some of these shows would almost make one believe it's a never ending cycle.

So, there I was feeling optimistic about humanity's future and thinking that the notion that as soon as one form of intolerance get resolved society will always automatically turn its predjudice on some other segment of the populations was wrong.

And on came the Autism Speaks ad. Well, it made the show seem a little more believable at least...

Anyhow, Autistic Bitch From Hell, wrote an entry about the fact that Here!, a gay and lesbian television network started running the ad, too:

I think it's pretty unfortunate, also quite ironic. I wrote an e-mail to Here!, this is what it said:

"It has come to my attention that Here! is now going to be running ads from Autism Speaks.
As an autistic person, I'd just like to express that this is deeply disappointing. I'd think if anyone could understand the plight of the autistic community, it would be members of the gay community.
Autistics are now in the same situation gays and lesbians were in 50 years ago. We are being marginalized, classified as broken or diseased, and having people attempt to cure us of being who we are(not only that, but wasting time and resources trying to eliminate individuality, when their efforts would be better spent trying to cure actual devastating epidemics such as AIDS or cancer) .
There is nothing wrong with being autistic. We think, feel and perceive the world differently; but difference, individuality, is not a disease. I would hope Here! could realize that.
In a deeply disturbing turn of arrogant, hypocritical irony; we may not receive any empathy from America's Premium Gay Television Network.
We are, nonetheless, here. We are autistic. Get used to it."

I was thinking perhaps if more people wrote such it might be beneficial. I wrote an e-mail, though I think perhaps hand written might be better. Their e-mail address is on their sight, I'll try to find their snail mail address and post it here later, but for now my mom's roommate needs the computer.

Hi Abby, welcome to blogland (although belatedly; I didn't notice your blog when you first began posting), and thanks for linking to my site!

Autism Hub has started accepting new blogs again after the software upgrade. You definitely should join.

As for the Autism Speaks ad showing up during Star Trek, yeah, it does make those episodes about future prejudice look a lot more believable. I hope you were able to resist the urge to throw a shoe at the TV, like in those exterminator commercials where a roach crawls across the screen.
