Why I Make Autism Content

"Autistics are making content about our lives and experiences because our input has been ignored in studies. It's always been about what others think of us, how they want us to be different. We've learned we were just right all along. We just want to be valued as much as other humans and included in this world that was designed to exclude us." -April Marie Mai

**This is my own experience as an autistic person and is in no way a representation of all autistic people, nor is it saying that non-autistic people may not experience this, too. It was just a super autistic moment that made me laugh, so I’m sharing it.**
