A harsh truth

You may have grown up being unaware that you are a member of a minority group. This happens a lot with autistic people who discover that we’re autistic as adults. We’ve always been autistic, but finding out that we are may compel us to find out more about ourselves. It may motivate us to seek out fellow autistic people, and then we start learning about our oppression.
