Support and silence

On leaving community and taking a hiatus, by Rachel Cohen-Rottenberg (Disability and Representation blog). While the autism and autistic communities can be a very valuable source of support, they can also have a very wearying culture of attack, where people have given up speaking their truth. I have seen both support and silence, and echo Rachel’s closing words: “Please take care of one another. And please stop having at one another. And please just talk and listen to one another.”
