it's not enough to say vaccines don't cause autism. we've also gotta say autism isn't a disease; autism is just another variation of personhood; it's effectively just whether your brain runs on windows or linux & saying "vaccines don't cause autism" is still villianizing autism and autistics.

@gentlerdarknesses This is part of why I have little sympathy for anti-vaxxers. I can get someone being taken in by bad evidence to be recruited into a damaging worldview, but when it's a hatred of autism that leads most people there I'm not keen giving them the benefit of the doubt

Autisic people deserve understanding, and we all deserve to not get measles
