Thoughts on autism research

[CN: cures, research, functioning labels]

I’ve written about misguided awareness campaigns before, but I think this one might actually top them all.
Today, I was invited to a Facebook event that encourages people to “post a picture of there hand covering there mouth with the hashtags silentselfie and letsilentwordsbeheard” in order to “show solidarity in the autism community”
