By day: mum of an autistic tot. By night: mum of an autistic tot.
I’m sure that, by now, many of you will have signed Rachel Cohen-Rottenberg’s Change.org petition asking that Joe Scarborough retract his unfounded remark. Chat show host, Scarborough opined that, James Holmes, the man who opened fire and killed twelve cinema goers at a Colorado preimier of the latest Batman movie, to be, “…probably on the autism scale.”
His ignorant and prejudiced spewing inspired this eloquent open letter from Kassiane, an autistic blogger.
Please spare the time to read it and if you haven’t yet done so, consider adding your name to the petition.
