My thoughts in response to the recent comments on my Facebook page that I should stop swearing and “be nice.”
Dear Tone Police,
Yes I am angry. And fuck yes, I will swear.
I am part of the wave of rebellion that is bringing equality for all.
I have seen the truth about autistic children being abused and killed.
I am horrified that people empathise with these murderers and abusers.
I, like many others, have experienced discrimination purely because I am not seen as equal.
I hear almost daily about cures and how I am a burden upon society.
But you want me to mind my P’s and Q’s?
I didn’t come here to make friends and play nice.
I came here to say we deserve more.
I came here to shout AUTISTIC RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS.
I came here to burn your puzzle piece and light the way for acceptance.
I came here to hold up a mirror to your ignorance and a spotlight on your privilege.
I came here to hold the truth of anyone who doesn’t believe they are enough – because you are.
Now please tell me, what on earth makes you think I give a fuck about your opinion and whether you are offended by my use of curse words?
