The Right to Autistic Existence
There are many attacks on the "right of existence." Many people feel that autistics should be indistinguishable from neurotypicals. That is, that we should be "cured." But we cherish and enjoy the uniqueness of our personalities and abilities - even though that also means we have to embrace our differences and weaknesses.
In some cases, this attack on our right to exist goes much beyond simply a desire to remove any hint of autism from our being and into the realm of murder. In some cases, autistics have been murdered out of "mercy" where the killer felt that being autistic truly was worse than death. Of course most autistics would disagree, but we aren't the ones making these decisions.
