“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”

I’ve been seeing this quote a lot today, after the tragic loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg yesterday. I resonate with her advice, which feels just as relevant for autistic advocacy as for political activism.

Myths and misunderstandings are what I aim to fight against, never people.

P.S. I write from my personal experience as an autistic. What I share is not a substitute for advice from an autistic medical professional. Also, some of my opinions have changed since I first wrote them.
