Autism neurodiversity

Poem: They Called Me a Vulture

When Leza was bullied for standing up for survivors of sexual abuse, they turned the abuse on its head by forging a symbolic connection with an oft-maligned but useful animal, the vulture.

My Autist Manifesto

“I have seen the shadow of doubt, and I went out and bought a floodlight with extra batteries.”

How I Would Free my Spectrum Daughter

I would grow as a role model for my daughter, a person of inner-security, unconditional love, and acceptance. I would discard robes of non-authenticity, fear-based projection of self onto others, the selfish feeding that society dictates from mass media, big business, and politics.
