There's a lot of politics floating about on the autism topic. This section has my views on some of those debates. For the record, I'm a moderate. So I'm neither a 'curist' nor a 'culturalist'. I take things person by person, situation by situation and I also feel there is no one thing called an autism spectrum condition so none of us is a spokesperson for all. All we can do is raise awareness of the diversity of people on the spectrum. Hopefully those of us in positions of spokespeople (however reluctantly or willingly) use those positions to draw attention to that diversity.
