Understanding another culture

November 26, 2019

It's common for people who don't understand another culture to learn more about it.
.
Perhaps they'll learn the language, try the eating habits and foods, even become accustomed to rituals and routines.
.
They do this in preparation for spending time in the environment of that culture.
.
Imagine if the non autistic world began to understand autism as a culture, rather than training autistic people to socialise, behave and live in alignment with non autistic standards.
.
Imagine the new connections and understandings, and the ways in which we might begin to thrive as human beings.
.
Instead, we continue to label autistic identity and culture as disordered and perpetuate myths and misunderstandings about what autism is.
.
This continues to create pain and resentment amongst many within the community who long to be heard, seen and validated.
