How can it be that the suicide rate among autistics is nine times higher and yet science has a focus on how to prevent our births?

@AzureKingfisher it's as if the attitude that creates this focus on preventing births is directly related to the reason autistics have such a high suicide rate...

NTs tell autistics that they don't deserve to live and then wonder why the suicide rate is so high.

@Some_Person of course that's related. Also the people rejecting, bullying and abusing us are a cause for that.

@AzureKingfisher it really annoys me when NTs blame autistic people for the increased suicide rate as if it's autistics "weird brain" that's making them depressed and not like... the huge amount of abuse they get from NTs.

At least there's autistic activism happening so maybe things will improve. I watched a speech today by an autistic person who talked about their autism being a positive thing for them.

@Some_Person exactly, we so much like dying. πŸ™„ My only problem with my autism is people excluding me, bullying me and abusing me. The sensory stuff might even be beneficial. I don't know how NTs feel but I get the impression not only negative stuff feels more intense to me.

@AzureKingfisher exactly. There's so many positives about autism, most problems come from NTs being abusive.
