Editorial #191: Forgive Them, For They Know Not What They Do

One of the editors of Autism Politico had the benefit of discussing with a prominent organization in the autism community some of the antics neurodiversity proponents get up to and how these antics adversely affect people.

Some neurodiversity advocates are extremely narrow-minded, not realizing that people have complex and trying personal lives, and cannot always take the time to get on board with neurodiversity issues. And sometimes when these people who have trying and complex personal lives fail to support neurodiversity activists, they become the victim of bullying, as if bullying is any way to advocate for the cause of neurodiversity.

So if you are a neurodiversity activist who has targeted someone or some organization because they or it could not get on board with your cause, recognize that they were right not to get involved with you and you were wrong to try to involve them. You are not worth knowing and not worth supporting.
