Where does Kim Wombles get off talking of community building? She doesn't give a shit about having any egalitarian community. Stand up for those who can't stand for themselves? She doesn't want them to be capable of standing for themselves in pursuit of their own interests or to even know they have a natural right to do so. What can this lead to besides the paternalistic caregivers/protectors bolstering their higher position in society while aggrandizing themselves further, and then telling the vulnerable ones that they "protect", what they do and do not have a right to?
Redefine success she says? I'm disgusted at what she redefines it as. Being of service to others as success means shit in that context. The hell with living to serve; to serve those of a higher stratum! I hate the idea of accepting and settling for mediocre outcomes. Success won't need to be redefined for the fortunate ones on the spectrum who aren't mentally impaired, as they get even extra success. Make the world a "softer" place? What a bunch of cornball nonsense! What is the point of this phony "acceptance"? This has nothing to do with caring about dignity and prosperity for all! She has no business complaining about "dehumanization" while her goal only guarantees the lower functioning the social status of pets!
Why shouldn't the parents be disappointed if they care for their childrens' future? The disappointment isn't much different from the disappointment that is experienced by the unfortunate autistic individuals themselves. I wonder which autistic individuals she wants the issues in the autistic community to be about, and who she thinks those same individuals should get to enforce their will on. Kickass kumbaya?! What kind of bullshit is that? I call it kissass kumbaya, as it involves kissing the asses of the privileged pigs who want to be in charge, while letting those creeps undermine future chances for drastic therapeutic help that would bring so much fortune to those without it!
Screw the idea of all involved getting along and pretending everything is fine, and that all of them have the same advantage and are getting a decent deal, with a bunch of phony smiles on their faces! That makes me want to hurl! No peace. No kumbaya until the enemies lose their grip on control and real reform is done. Euphemism saturated positivity bullshit won't fix anything! Her benevolent attitude seems very phony considering her comparison of one parent's efforts at therapy for her child to Munchausen's syndrome, and her thinking that parents who dare complain about their child's condition should be smacked upside the head to bring them back to "reality". I'd like to see her and that other snotty liar Corina who also likes the idea try it. I wonder how it would turn out for them.
