Content of our Character
"I have a dream that someday my children will not be judged by the color of their skin but, by the content of their character"
These priceless words are from the American hero Dr Martin Luther King Jr., of the premiere peace makers of our time. King along with many other people the world over still participate and promote and strive for the very ideals he stood for. There are many unsung heroes all over the world that do good things everyday ,Thank you.
by the content of their character, These words mean just as much to Autism as they do the civil rights movement; As we to have a dream of having our autism character and insight discovered and developed by the autism researchers from all over the world. As of this writing in 2007 Autism remains blindsided by its very own goodwill and 'expertise' and its very own Professionals that for lack of a better terms remain ignorant of the obvious. Not only are they ignorant they are purposefully ignorant as many have lost the courage to do what is right and investigate every aspect of autism, even the stuff they don't like hearing about.
Autism has hidden purposely hidden in its ranks people from all over the world that have done and do the impossible everyday. Many of us have figured out a human thought process that has never graced a text book before. You might well think of Alan Turing 1912-1954 he was an Autism Hero and Father of the Computer. Of Course Modern Autism 'Experts" would never dream of such things or don't even care who Turing and many others of us are. But someday soon they will be shocked to discover they have had the wrong end of the autism stick and missed the whole point and cheated Mankind out of his key building block thoughts. We too have a dream that someday our autism will be seen for the content of its thoughts and keen senses (invisible to you) and the experience we have figured out to make it all work for us in real life. Autism was and has been better figured out than you would have dreamed all along, too bad a curse was thrust upon us. Please urge the autism powers to break their grips on us if they will not even investigate our
Dr King had one very wonderful assistant Bernard Rustin. Bernard was a speech writer and confidant to Dr King and also a legend in the gay community. Rustin was very out and instrumental in pioneering lots of civil rights issues along side Dr. King. I mention this as it seems a majority of our autism success group including our Autism hero Dr Alan Turing, Father of the Computer and WW II hero was gay as well.
Unless you search GLBT (gay, lesbian Bi sexual and Transgendered) autism on the Web you will never find us. Trust me many of your loved ones have. Some of you as, Autism Professionals and Parents should be ashamed of your cold callous behavior. More than ONE Autism suicide has been GLBT rooted. I know the Parenting Manuals and the Autism Professionals never give much thought to the ideal of a GLBT child especially in Autism Circles but we are here. See for your self how Autism and gay mixed very well and HOW that can be done again by reading the book THE ENIGMA by Andrew Hodges (1983) the story of Alan Turing and his inventions and unknowingly his Autism Success.
The best part of this, our success is often linked to the autism social charm school being GLBT afforded us. There is something to the Gay geek stereotype and its autism social success; success that can be duplicated by all of autism If only autism "Professionals" would care.
