Shades of the disasterous NYU Ransom notes campaign:
They make autism into a being with a voice who says:
“…and with every voice I take away, I acquire yet another language”
“…and if you are happily married, I will make sure that your marriage fails”
“…your money will fall into my hands and I will bankrupt you for my own self gain”
“…I will make it virtually impossible for your family to attend a temple, birthday party, a public park without a struggle, without embarrassment, without pain”
Not convinced it is like the ransom notes campaign?
“…I will plot to rob you of your children and your dreams.”
The rest of video is scripted from the perspective of parents, family, friends….pretty much everyone except for autistics, with phrases like:
“When you came for my child you forgot. You came for me.”
I am totally speechless aside from one word for Autism Speaks: why?
edited to add: here is the Autism Speaks announcement.
