Acceptance in the Autism Community

This comic is so indicative of the acceptance of the various factions in the autism community. If you believe the wrong thing, whether it be that vaccines are related to autism, or that autism is a disorder or that autism can be treated using behavioral and/or biomedical techniques or any other heresy, you are labeled a pariah and cast out of the community.

  1. Interesting. I was thinking I totally agree with how indicative this is of the acceptance (or lack thereof) in the autism community. But my experience has been one of being shunned for thinking that vaccines are NOT related to autism, and NOT buying into every biomedical technique that comes down the pike.

    Perspective is everything, I guess.
