Bickering in the ranks
The online Autistic community is divided into many different forums sites. And some seem to have a very Bill gates type attitude towards it. That they seem to want there site to be the centre of the autism culture & community. And this is true of the autistic rights groups too. I have always said that the Autistic Culture is a culture of dissidents. What I mean by this is that autistic differ greatly with each other. Some of this is because of the heterogeneous nature of Autism and Asperger's Syndrome. Almost all of us share a feeling of being slighted by Non-Autistic's(Most I think do). And I think most want to see the stop to this. It's just most of us have differing ideas on how that should be accomplished.
The problem is some Autistics don't see this. To these people, they're right and everyone who disagrees is wrong. Also some Aspies can't let an argument go...ever. Many of these sites are split because of personal disagreements between owners.
These arguments are detrimental to our cause. These splits make us look silly and child-like to our opponents. People will not take us seriously. So please bury the hatchet!
How can we ask other to be accepting of us if we are not accepting of each other.
