"No matter how much energy and resources we put into making it a safe place for ourselves and our children, Shit Happens." ~Roberta HillSo there you have it folks. Shit happens. And it seems then that there is no need to discuss that the "shit" must stop, or that the "shit" is unacceptable or that the "shit" causes irreparable psychological damage. In fact, no. We need to accept the "shit" and not only deal with it, but turn the "shit" into something good. At least Ms. Kabaki Sisto alluded to turning lemons into lemonade; Ms. Hill expects autistic people and their families to magically turn "shit" into a sweet smelling life experience.
[addenda @8:55 pm ET] This apparently is not the first time Ms. Hill has misrepresented or offended the autism community. In February, she ran an editorial misrepresenting the views of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. When called on her mistake, she denied any wrongdoing and refused to change the article. You can read the story here.
Ms. Hill needs to check her allistic privilege and the Autism Daily Newscast needs a new editor.
