Autism not welcome?

The Moscow Oceanarium, which opened its doors in autumn, seems not to be welcoming everyone. A group of children diagnosed with #autism has been denied access.

"Refused. Visitors do not like to see the disabled, it disappoints them. It is not acceptable," read a note sent to teachers of a school that had tried to organize an excursion for autistic children. Further, the Moscow Oceanarium administrator suggested visiting the oceanarium on a cleanup day – so that “nobody sees them."

Wow. This is truly sad. Not only to deny the children their opportunity, but to feel that you are so fragile that you must manipulate your environment to never witness any hardship or difference. Sad all around.
