Story 1
A teenager is found chained to a bed
His mother did it
There is a public outcry
Media condemns the mother
The mother is prosecuted

Think before you tag

Autistic activists do a lot of stuff, including fighting for change, on social media. Personally, it’s where I’m most comfortable because I communicate best in writing.
Of course, there are times when we need to take the fight offline. We do that too, but a lot of it is online – often in the comments sections on Facebook.
