I am the walls, the silent halls.

She told me don't think like that, it's really not that bad.

daddy luke hears his 7 year old daughter say a foul mouthed word and getting upset over it asks michael “where would she learn to use that kind of language at her age” and michaels son walks in “dad where the fuck is the hair dye i fucked up my hair again” and daddy luke gives michael a look and michael goes “i dont know where the fuck he learned that”

Autism isn’t something a person has, or a “shell” that a person is trapped inside. There’s no normal child hidden behind the autism. Autism is a way of being. It is pervasive; it colors every experience, every sensation, perception, thought, emotion, and encounter, every aspect of existence. It is not possible to separate the autism from the person—and if it were possible, the person you’d have left would not be the same person you started with.

This is important, so take a moment to consider it: Autism is a way of being. It is not possible to separate the person from the autism.

Therefore, when parents say,

I wish my child did not have autism,

what they’re really saying is,

I wish the autistic child I have did not exist, and I had a different (non-autistic) child instead.

Read that again. This is what we hear when you mourn over our existence. This is what we hear when you pray for a cure. This is what we know, when you tell us of your fondest hopes and dreams for us: that your greatest wish is that one day we will cease to be, and strangers you can love will move in behind our faces.
