I do too, but I think we as a human race need to embrace acceptance on all levels. For example, people of different faiths, race and ethnicity need to feel welcome here, not assaulted. Polite disagreement will go much further than legalistic rants. We are ALL different; we are ALL unique individuals!

awareness is not enough - promote autism acceptance™
"Acceptance is not love.
You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they're alive and human." ~ Dr. Albert Ellis
We have an autism acceptance community here on google.
Our community is dedicated to the Autism Acceptance movement; supporting the empowerment of autistic individuals, encouraging self-advocacy and promoting our fundamental belief that:
All persons are worthy of appreciation and respect without discrimination as to abilities, age, culture, education, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religious beliefs, political opinions, sexual orientation or socio-economic class.
The idea of changing the public, private and not-for profit sector emphasis from "autism awareness" to Autism Acceptance will need the dedication and organization of many individuals to make this cause a reality. We believe that everyone can agree that Autism Acceptance is needed in our society to improve the lives of individuals living with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
